UFOs come in and out of a mountain in Adjuntas, Puerto Rico in 1990

Many in Puerto Rico remember the famous wave of UFO sightings in the years 1972 - 1973, which occurred in the municipality of Adjuntas, located in the south-center part of the island. Well, now let's explain a fascinating incident that occurred there in 1990. Find the details below.

A mountain that opens?:

A young man, Francisco Javier Sotomayor, and some friends witnessed a strange phenomenon in the district of ​​El Saltillo of the town of Adjuntas in April or March of 1990 from a local church. The following is his account of what happened: "At about eight o'clock in the evening, there was a power outage around Saltillo and a very bright glowing light came out of a mount and the sky above it became as bright as daytime. Then beams of lights began to come out from there, as if it were a lightning storm, but coming from the ground. When a light appeared, a saucer-shaped thing spinning around was seen falling or descending toward the ground. From the spot where it fell, a spectacle of lights emerged like searchlights or lasers beaming upward, something like that. There’s nothing electrical up there, no cables nor nothing. It was as if the ground had opened up from where the lights came out.

"It was something so beautiful and so strange that couldn’t be something produced by humans. Many other people saw that when it happened. One of them was my friend Juan Luis Laracuente. What descended was like a flying saucer, but very bright, with lots of different colored lights. The predominating colors were purple and red. It was something incredible. That was my first UFO sighting, because that’s what I saw a flying saucer."

What the young man described is similar to that seen by his friend Luis J. Marrero, who on the early morning hours of March 19, 1989, at about 4:00 am, while in his minivan parked in 'San Joaquin de Adjuntas', saw how the sky lit up when at the same time the electric power failed in the area.

According to Marrero, when looking to see what happened, he spotted something at the base of Vegas Arriba Mountain. Coming out from there were some powerful light beams oscillating from side to side and looked like lightning or laser beams. "It looked as if there was a hole in the ground, like an opening in the ground was discharging the rays like those seen in discotheques, but emerging from below the ground," he said.

"Suddenly I saw from where the light was coming from, something like a flying saucer, a disk, but all in red light, which flew over the mountain and headed eastward. There the light went out in Vegas Arriba Mountain, as if the hole in the ground had closed and then the same rays and lights reappeared further away next to Santa Pascuas Mountain. The same UFO appeared to enter there in the other hole and then it closed. Afterward the light reappeared again in Vegas Arriba Mountain and then at once all the lights went out and nothing else was seen, everything ended."

Although there have been many unexplained sightings in the town of Lajas, the situation there has been hyped by the amount of lies and exaggeration by a group of so-called, "ufologists" who ignore other areas of Puerto Rico to promote tourism in Lajas. That was evident when my wife and my daughter confronted a terrifying experience in the town of Aguada with extraterrestrials and that group of charlatans refused our plea for help. Of course, if it happened in Lajas they would have jumped on the opportunity for fame and tourism for that town. Those hoaxes and lies were approved and sanctioned by the then mayor of that town who named route 303 "The extraterrestrial route". The idea of building an "UFOport" (ovnipuerto), “la llorona sightings" and the biggest hoax of them all, "that a UFO crashed there" all this could only be found in a science fiction novel.
