Uruguay: An “Imp” Over Nueva Palmira


COLONIA – It is the talk of the town in Nueva Palmira. Several local residents claim having seen an imp or an alien – opinions vary – over an electric power line. After repeated complaints, police officers and agents of the local Prefecture visited the site. [Witnesses] claim it measured 25 centimeters. It arrived flying and and would move around, bothered by flashlight beams

A colorful imp appeared in Nueva Palmira this weekend, suspended over a high voltage line leading to the port. The phenomenon was reported by several locals, who saw the phenomenon moving some four feet over the surface of the wire. Police and Prefecture personnel visited the area. The [figure] shrank until it vanished around four in the morning.

The phenomenon has caused a sensation in Nueva Palmira, after word spread that an alleged “imp” or extraterrestrial being had arrived, flying, to the corner of Calle Ultramar in the general direction of the port zone.

This is how journalist Roberto Tatto told the story on Tuesday on Nueva Palmira’s Cono Sur radio station, and how it was repeated to LA REPUBLICA, according to eyewitness accounts. “The event occurred last Saturday night at the traffic distributor that leads to the port,” he explained. “A shop owner came outside and saw a light. He was startled to see it at a given altitude. It remained suspended from one of the wires. He summoned his wife and some of his shop’s patrons to come out for a look. They approached and saw from below that the figure changed colors. It had the shape of a doll. They pointed a flashlight at it, and it started to move around, as if bothered by the light. It was a 25 centimeter long “doll” moving over the cable. Later on, the Police arrived with high powered beams and it began moving more, as if becoming nervous. It moved its head and shuddered.”

According to this story, the phenomenon was witnessed by several locals, who according to the fellow journalist “ were afraid to come any closer, because (the being) seemed be annoyed by the beams” as it stood over the high-voltage wires.

Hours went by and efforts were made to photograph with a cellphone, “but we later saw that it didn’t come out right,” they explained. The phenomenon lasted until around 4:00 a.m., when the figure contracted slowly until it vanished. A pearl-colored “goo” was left behind as the only tangible evidence, the local journalist told La Republica. He claims that the eyewitness accounts hint at something with characteristics that were “less than mundane.”

Discussion over whether it was an “imp” or an extraterrestrial manifestation continues to dominate the daily agenda among the residents of Nueva Palmira.

NOTE: not the first time I have seen or heard an alien referred to as an 'imp'. I hope someone can grab an image of this being...Lon
