A newscast on Argentine television came to a screeching halt last week when the anchors spotted an unidentified flying object soaring over the city of Buenos Aires. The strange sighting reportedly occurred on the program 'Mananas Argentinas' last Wednesday morning. As anchor Mariela Fernandez was standing in front of a giant screen which showed the city skyline and marveling at the unsettling amount of smog in the air, she suddenly caught sight of the UFO.
Clearly amazed by what she is seeing, Fernandez quickly points out the anomaly to her co-host Diego Angeli. The odd object appears to be a silver sphere that quickly moves across the sky and eventually vanishes from sight when it flies off screen. While we are unable to discern exactly what the anchors are saying, it seems clear that Fernandez was stunned by the oddity's rapid speed. That said, one local account of the incident indicates that the duo may not have taken the sighting all that seriously as the segment was described as "hilarious."
As to what the object may have been, aside from an alien craft, one prosaic possibility is that it was some kind of balloon. Be that as it may, the appearance of a UFO during a newscast is something we've seen quite a bit of lately as TV stations in Oregon, Milwaukee, and Buffalo have all had brushes with the unexplained this year.
