The presence of UFOs in Venezuela has become increasingly more frequent and intense. A new sighting has been reported from the coastal state of Falcón, a region in which these enigmatic objects have been popularly classified by local residents as "avioncitos" (little airplanes) due to their breathtaking and customary appearances.

On September 28, 2003, two witnesses observed the manuevers of an enormous luminous sphere that flew over the Punto Fijo region of Falcon, to the northwest of the Gulf of Venezuela. The event took place at approximately
7:45 p.m. while José Jiménez and his father-in-law performed fishing tasks in the vicinity of the Villamarina and El Pico beaches.

According to Jiménez, the source produced an intense and "glistening" white light that came from above. This caused him to look up to the heavens and notice the strange and nearby luminous presence among "hundreds of stars in the sky".

The witness added that after a while, after having remained static for a few seconds, the obejct became lost after performing zig-zagging and vertical "appearances" and "disappearances" in the air space over Falcón.

It is worth noting that it is not the first time that such events have been reported in the area. Dozens of people have repeatedly reported the presence of these odd luminous obejcts. Likewise "confidential" unofficial communications made by the crews fo Venezuelan vessels have also reported strange objects during crossings of the deep waters of the Gulf of Venezuela.
