On July 6, 1959, the Adelante newspaper ran a headline reading: Strange Machine in the Bay of Matanzas, claiming that the exact nature of the object remained unclear, in spite of the investigations conducted…with the inevitable speculation as to whether it was a flying saucer or another of object of the kind that flies through space.
The fishermen who witnessed the Bay of Matanzas incident were not the only ones treated to a UFO sighting. Also in 1959, but with no specific date given, Pablo Rodriguez had been fishing off the Havana coast early in the morning, accompanied by a friend. All of a sudden, the waters near the fishing boat began to bubble intensely as a massive silvery disk emerged from the depths, hanging in mid-air and dripping seawater before taking off at great speed. As if that experience had not been shocking enough, Rodriguez claimed seeing “some figures clad in black, like undersea fishermen” swimming only a few meters from his boat. A USO and CE-3 event, all in one.
