April 25-28, 2002: UFO's appear Venezuela
Nine days after a UFO was seen on a Venezuelan news report, on Thursday, April 25, 2002, Caracas experienced a second UFO visitation, which was seen by dozens of people.
According to Venezuelan ufologist Martha Rosenthal, the first sighting took place at about 8 p.m. The eyewitness, Sra. Claret del Rosario Laya, "observed a UFO with an intense light over the Cerro Avila (hill). The UFO moved back and forth in perfect balance before disappearing completely."
Elsewhere in Caracas, "at 11:20 p.m., Sra. Moralda Monasterios, public relations director for Venezuela's Meridiano Television, watched a UFO fly over the city, leaving a faint beam of light--a straight line of white light--in its wake. The UFO continued these aerial maneuvers for two hours."
"Finally, Prof. Mary Rizzo sighted a lenticular UFO" over the campus of the University of Caracas that evening. (See NotiOVNI for April 28, 2002. Muchas gracias a Jorge Martin, Daniel Munoz y Martha Rosenthal para esas historias.)
(Editor's Comment: Okay, that's two so far. One from the West Bank and the other from Caracas, Venezuela. Did any other UFO Roundup readers spot one of these "peek-a-boo flybys" on TV on Tuesday, April 16, 2002?)

April 16, 2002: UFO's appear in Venezuelan and West Bank TV news.
Puerto Rican journalist and UFO researcher Jorge Martin reported to UFO Round Up: "I've read your report about the UFO observed on April 16, 2002 in an ABC Cable News broadcast related to the Israeli attacks in Jenin.
I was surprised by the report because the same day, Tuesday, April 16, 2002, at (12) noon, my wife and I were watching a live (TV) broadcast of a Spanish language CNN report from Venezuela related to the situation in that country after the coup d'etat made on the government of President Hugo Chavez, and something similar happened."
"CNN's reporter in Venezuela, journalist Harris Whitbeck, was talking to a fellow female news anchor in the U.S. when, all of a sudden, a spherical white UFO flew in the distance over the city, right behind reporter Harris Whitbeck, who was located in a high position overlooking the city of Caracas."
"The female news anchor seemed to become aware of the presence of the anomalous object and smiled in amazement, but at this moment the broadcast was terminated, and CNN passed on to another item."
"Strangely enough, CNN's Hispanic reports are regularly videotaped and are repeated during the day, but this one was not. Was it censored? If so, who did it, and why?"
"For me, this seems too much of a coincidence, for UFOs to appear unexpectedly during both international TV news reports on the same day and more or less the same type of events. Are 'they' sending a message to the international authorities?"
