the early morning of November 27, 1995, Samuel Rodolfo Barreras
was working as a security guard at a place called El
Trigal, an urban area outside of Havana City. While
inside his post shelter through the window, he noticed a
bright light approaching his location from the sky. Samuel
assumed that the light was an aircraft that was having trouble
and was in danger of crashing. To his amazement, the light
shortly became a hovering flying saucer above the roof of
one of the buildings. While in awe watching the craft, he
realized that he was completely paralyzed and was not able
to move a muscle. The craft displayed some flying maneuvers
in order to descend to the centre of a small plaza that
was in the middle of this building complex where Samuel
was guarding. Slowly, the craft descended, hovering half
a meter over the ground.
to shock, Samuel still was unable to move, but still remained
watching out the window while the craft was coming to a
stop. He did not see any landing gear; the UFO was simply
floating half a meter over the ground, completely still.
A minute passed and a hatch opened upward from the lower
part of the craft. This door or hatch was not initially
visible or noticeable by Samuel when the craft was hovering
prior to stopping.
entity emerged from the inside of the craft. Samuel described
it as a humanoid figure, around six plus feet tall, but
based on his mechanical movement, he assumed that was some
kind of robot. The entity walked from the ship
in the direction of the location where Samuel was stationary.
Samuel was growing in fear and tried to break a piece of
the window to use their parts as defence weapon just in
case, but it was impossible due to the paralysis that he
was under. Luckily, almost 10 meter away from Samuels
location, the entity made a turn in a different direction
and decide to inspect another area.
observed this entity carefully. It was wearing a tight dark
clothing that seemed very shiny. He noticed
the unusual shape of its head and it had very big dark eyes
he said, Samuel stated that he was not sure but its
eyes seemed similar to a camera diaphragm. The entity stood
still over 15 minutes while moving its head in different
direction looking around, then retraced its steps back to
the craft's location and board it. The hatch closed immediately
and some seconds after, the lower part of the craft lit
up with some sort of lights or turbines as Samuel described
them, based on the high luminosity and humming sound that
it was creating similar to bees but in a higher pitch.
craft started a slow ascend while this circular array of
blue fluorescent lights were gaining in intensity and power.
Once the craft was at an altitude parallel to the roof of
the building, in a split of a second it took off at an impossible
speed. It looked like it disappeared instantly from the
location. Shortly after the craft's departure, Samuel gained
control of his body and was able to move. He quickly searched
for a paper and pencil to sketch the craft that he just

September of the following year, a series of sightings of
a similar craft was witnessed by students and staff members
of a school in Matanzas, a neighbour Province of Havana.
night, around midnight, a group of girls were gathered in
a section of the dorm chatting while watching the stars
through the window. Suddenly, a gust of wind rushed through
the window's opening and a humming sound was heard as a
bright light illuminated the whole dorm. A craft was seen
cruising horizontally slowly close to the building with
a red and white lights flashing in some sort of sequence.
The girls were running across the room, franticly peeking
at the windows to get a better look at this craft. They
describe it as elliptical in shape from its side view. They
knew that this craft wasnt the usual man-made aircraft
like an helicopter due to the lack of noise considering
how close it was flying from the building. Also, they discarded
an airplane due to the hovering capabilities of this craft.
the next two nights, this craft seemed to coming back to
scout the area and was witnessed every single night by the
students and staff of the school. Some of the students were
able to get a closer look of this craft while flying over
the building. They described it as metallic and silver in
colour, round in shape with a circular array of light around
its perimeter. The lights configurations varied from red
and white to blue or red and white, all flashing in sequence.
A student noticed some lines under the bottom of the craft
that was following a radial pattern. One of the interviewed
students stated that the craft was similar to one that she
saw in earlier years, when it was flying over by Cardenas,
another town in the Province of Matanzas.
