CADIZDIRECTO – The UFO Phenomenon has always drawn the attention of those who have consecrated part of the life and time to study its origin and strangeness. There have been UFO sightings all
over the world, but perhaps the hardest to follow were those which took place in the Eastern European nations, the ones behind the so-called “Iron Curtain”, or in Cuba, due to the secretive nature of its regime.
The recent death of Cuban leader Fidel Castro opens new doors to any UFO information that may have come about on the island. It has been learned that Cuba censored all matters related to the UFO phenomenon for over 37 years.
One of these cases involves the peasant Adolfo Zarate, who was pursued by a “wave” of UFO reports throughout the island of Cuba in October 1995, at which time the Cuban government was forced to admit the existence of UFO documentation in this regard.
This documentation acquires special meaning after Castro’s death, particularly on a subject whose censorship was mandated on the island.
[Editor’s note: INEXPLICATA has provided information on the fascinating history of the UFO phenomenon in Cuba for many years, showcasing the efforts of researchers such as Orestes Girbau. We would like to take this opportunity to mark the passing of Dr. Virgilio Sánchez-Ocejo, the Cuban-born researcher whose work appeared in MUFON Journal, Flying Saucer Review and other publications. His contributions to making the mysteries of the largest island in the Caribbean are far too numerous to mention in this space.]
