Volume LXVIII, Number 13, 22 July 1965
(Catholic Transcript)


The whole article:
“ A Jesuit priest-astronomer here said he has seen unidentified flying objects — ‘flying saucers’ — in Argentine skies.

Father Benito Reyna, S.J., is professor of mathematics at Salvador University in Buenos Aires and an astronomer with more than 30 years experience.

THE FIRST TIME I saw UFOs, I was in Cordoba,’ Father Reyna told newsmen. ‘With the help of my telescope I was able to follow their flight clearly and to note their shape and color, predominently [sic] white, yellow, red and blue hues.

‘Then last March I saw them on two successive nights in San Miguel. At that time Echo II was orbiting the earth and I believe the crew of the flying saucers was closely following the U.S. man-made satellite to study its characteristics.”
