Antonio Guirao and his cousin Jose Carrillo, along with their friends Ginés and Jesús, held a sort of dialogue by means of luminous signals with a strange luminous object that had landed on the top of a summit in Sierra de Carrascy in the vicinity of Sangonera la Verde.   The boys had gone out that night to hunt for turtledove nests on two motorcycles. They stopped at Fuente del Perro at around midnight when at the top of a small hill (known as “el Cabezo Colorao”) the sighted the strange luminous object.   Antonio pointed his motorcycle’s headlight toward the summit and lit it up. Immediately, a powerful beam of light responded. Thus began an exchange of beams of light that lasted some three quarters of an hour.
The Game Ends in Panic
Antonio is 16. His cousin José is 14. To both of them, it was just a fun and exciting game. Their companions, Ginés and Jesús, also played a gleeful part. It was a warm evening in early July 1979 – an excellent night for an adventure – and that exchange of luminous signals was something uncanny for the boys, who were only vaguely aware of what the UFO phenomenon meant. But the adventure had only just started.   Excited by the strange luminous object, “about the size of a car”, as they described it later, located at the summit of a wooded hill, and exchanging lights with it, made them forget everything else. Until the sound of crackling brush nearby alerted them to the presence of an intruder. They scanned the darkness for a few moments until the saw the outline of a tall figure standing over two and a half meters tall, clearly visible in the moonlight. Some dogs that accompanied them started barking in fear. 
  Frightened, the boys got onto their motorbikes and fled the scene. Their panic was such that when one of the motorcycles experienced a blowout, the passenger had to mount the other bike, which strained toward the town. The rider of the damaged bike chose to remain with his vehicle, well aware that he was damaging it further with every kilometer. With his tire shredded, he arrived in the town, and the time was around one o’clock in the morning.   Several local residents, seeing the boys’ agitated state, decided to head out to the location in a couple of cars. Others chose to remain behind. One of them, Fernando Martinez, stated: “I decided to stay here. As soon as the cars departed, those of us who were present were able to see how that thing took off over the hill and after making a turn, shot off in the direction of Cartagena.”   The cars and their occupants returned in disappointment. They hadn’t been able to see a thing. However, there was now a series of witnesses who could attest to an extraordinary event. As of that moment, the matter became the province of researchers.
A Credible Account
The Sangonera case has the kind of witnesses that I find fully credible: simple, humble country folk. They described the UFO as being shaped like “chapina” (seashell). It did not occur to them to liken it to a “flying saucer” or disk shaped objects. This is something new and unknown to them. The excitement of the moment could lead them to exaggerate, but never to lie, and much less to fantasize.   When a young man of humble origin, already working as a lemon harvester at the tender age of 16, allows his motorbike – his most treasured belonging – to be damaged by refusing to stop and fix a flat, leads us to consider the level of fright he must have experienced. The description of the strange being could have hardly emerged from a flight of fancy by the young men.  NOTE: The above image is CGI.
