SEPTEMBER 10, 1990………..ALFENA PORTUGAL
Although it happened around two-hundred miles to the north of the Ota Air Force Base, an incident in the autumn of 1990, also remains unexplained. In the small town of Alfena, a group of school children on their way to class would spot a strange object overhead. According to their reports, the object was saucer-shaped, with four beams hanging down. One witness would describe the object as being like a turtle with legs. Some witnesses, extremely spooked by the sightings, began to throw rocks skyward toward the object. One resident, however, photo journalist, Manuel Gomes, managed to take four clear pictures of the craft. Manuel Gomes, sitting at a local diner, was soon told of the sightings. He was a photojournalist and worked with the Morning Journal News.
He quickly gathered his camera and rushed to the location of the latest reported sighting. He managed to take four photographs of the object. He was unable to identify the object as anything he had seen before. He turned over his report and photographic negatives to the CNIFO research group, who began an investigation into the events of the day. After about an hour, the unidentified object finally flew away into the horizon, leaving many questions as to its origin and purpose. As researchers began to discuss the sightings, various theories were offered. The photographs taken by Gomes were examined and found not to have been tampered with. What was seen in the Alfena skies was exactly what was on his photographs. The big mystery was: what was the object? Of the many theories offered, the most plausible was that the object was some type of observation device, possibly launched by the military. However, the military claimed to have nothing in the air at that time and location. The case of the Alena, Portugal craft remains unsolved to this day.
