Did We Discover a Large Undersea Alien Base in the South-East of Puerto Rico?

The archipelago of Puerto Rico, in the Caribbean Greater Antilles, is a land full of riddles and surprises that for many decades has been a hot spot of UFO / extraterrestrial
activity. This activity has been connected, in many ocassions, with the sea sorrounding our territory. Now, we have made a startling finding which may, perhaps, shed more light on this enigma.

A year ago we discovered mysterious anomalous structures which lie on the seafloor in the south and east of Puerto Rico, which extend from a point in the south of the city of Ponce to another point in the south of the island-municipality of Vieques, in the east. 

We discovered them while studying the seabed around the island using NOAA images derived from that agency's studies by means of satellite imaging and sonar bathymetry, etc. The structures are much too geometrical in shape, and that detail makes us think they are complex artificial structures, and not the product of casual natural geological formations. 

The first anomalous structure consists of an extremely large rectangular structure which shows at its left end what appears to be an entrance into the seafloor. The structure and its 'entrance' are geometrically-shaped too, and again, they seem to be of an artificial origin.  

But also, starting right out from the top left of that structure there is what seems to be huge roads or tunnels which connect to the continental shelf in the south of the city of Ponce, in southern Puerto Rico. 

'Coincidentally', back in the late 1980s many citizens of the city of Ponce pleaded the media to ask the local and state authorities to investigate something that worried them: at night loud noises and loud buzzing sounds were being felt. It was as if someone was drilling or boring underground with some powerful machines. They also reported hearing great noises like those of large falling rocks which tumbled underground. 

For several days the locals and other curious citizens from nearby towns made night vigils, but eventually the media stopped covering the issue and it was silenced. Subsequently the noises and vibrations stopped and the mystery was forgotten. 

Now, after discovering the submerged roads or tunnels that connect with the continental shelf in the south of the city of Ponce, I think on the possibility that the two things are related. Did the builders of the structures on the seabed south and southeast of Puerto Rico also built an underground access to the city of Ponce? Maybe another underground facility there?

and other islands of the Caribbean and the continental 
shelf of the region. 
The largest anomalous structures are observable beneath 
the islands of Puerto Rico and Vieques, and almost reaching 
to the island of St. Croix. 

First there are the large rectangular-shaped structure and the road-like or tunnel-like structures that connects it with the continental shelf south of the city of Ponce.

Secondly, there is a large quadrangular-shaped complex of structures formed by other five rectangular-shaped structures, and right in the middle, between the islands and the anomalies is a deep undersea canyon known to locals 
as the 'South Depth'.

Below: visual enlargements of the anomalous structures.
Image below: A cropped section of the image submitted to the Photoshop digital filter shows more clearly the 'entrance' and the roads-like or tunnels-like structures.

The images show a vast undersea-underground set of structures that is almost the same size of the main island of Puerto Rico (105 miles wide and 40 miles large), a tremendous amount of territory!. Another thing to consider is that the depth at which these structures are is one of thousands of feet underwater, and they are subjected to a very strong pressure in dark abyssal depths. 

A Secret US base, Prediluvian Buildings or a Hidden Extraterrestrial Base? 

Now, who built them down there, and who may be using them?
It could be speculated that form the structures are part of a secret base of the United States Navy, which until recently held the Roosevelt Roads Naval Station in Ceiba, in east of the island.

At official level, the US Navy alleges they closed that base in year 2000, but who can assure us that that agency did not build gigantic secret facilities and stayed, in hiding, in our territory, but in deep sea? 

Some might argue this, but the huge dimensions of the structures, and the depth of several thousand feet at which they are make it difficult for it to be human beings who inhabit and work in them, as they could not build this type of huge complex structures at such depths, for this would require some sort of superior technology that we humans do not have at this moment. The depth of approximately 15,928 feet is one in which it is difficult for humans to live and work at. 

Another possibility is that the vast complex of underground / underwater structures located in the south-east of Puerto Rico is extremely old and was built prior to modern humans living in this area. 

Its origin could be dated to a period during or before the last ice age, as huge ice sheets covered much of the Earth in those days, and the sea level worldwide was much lower than it is today. 
As a matter of fact, it is known that for some time the islands of the Greater Antilles were one single mass of land that wa above the sea level of that past era. Perhaps a highly developed protohistoric civilization now dissapeared from the face of Earth could be responsible for the construction of these surprising structures. 

But there is another possible explanation: what if the structures were not the product of human technology, nor the product of an antediluvian disappeared human civilization, but the product of a civilization of aliens who have lived in this area for a long time, hiding from humanity?

The use of highly advanced alien technology surely would allow advanced aliens to live and work in these dark depths, and under the conditions of high pressures experienced there. 
This possibility can not be excluded, as there is voluminous photographic evidence and testimony and several hundred of witnesses (pilots, fishermen, and residents of coastal areas all around Puerto Rico, who testify about frequent sightings of UFOs sumerging into the sea along the coastline, or flying out from the water. 

As for the specific case of the south-eastern sea region, there is a significant evidence of this (which we published in our book 'El Yunque: Gateway to Other Worlds') which is shown in an official NASA document, a video filmed by the astronauts crew of the space shuttle mission STS-80, when they filmed  a UFO that flew out from the sea at a point located south-east of the island-municipality of Vieques, after which it soared out into space at a speed of 500 miles per second. After approaching the space shuttle the UFO suddenly swerved to the left and quickly disappeared into deep space. 

The specialist in digital imaging analysis, and consultant to NASA, Mark Carlotto, studied this video's data, the specific day and time and azimuth position the STS-80 shuttle was at when taking the views, and undoubtedly confirmed that the UFO rose out to space precisely from a point at sea south of the island of Vieques, precisely at the point in which lies one of the structural anomalies we discovered, the large quadrangular-shaped structure.

NASA space shuttle during mission STS- 80.

The 'South Depth' 

But there is more data linking this undersea canyon with the mystery of this whole matter. 
When we were doing research for our book 'Vieques: Bombing Range of the Third Kind', in which we inform about UFO / alien activity in the island-municipality of Vieques and an apparent secret US Navy contact program with aliens, we interviewed many leaders of the struggle against the US Navy's presence in that island. 

One of those leaders was Carlos Ventura, who amongst many other things told us about something very strange that happened on a couple of occasions in the aforementioned deep submarine canyon south of Vieques, which Vieques fishermen call "The South Depth".

 "I used to go fishing to that area - he said -, which is very deep, because it falls thousands of feet deep underwater platform of Vieques, and is also one of the best fishing sites we have. There's a large amount of sea life there. 

Image below: Jorge Martín interviews Vieques 
fisherman Carlos Ventura.

"On several occasions I was on my boat, launching fishing box nets, and used a sonar equipment I have in the boat to see how deep was the seafloor. 

"The sonar images indicated a depth of 2.330 feet, and I threw the box nets tied to a rope... and nothing happened... they continued to fall to 2,300 feet deep and did not touch bottom! But I had fished there before, and I knew that at that location there was a seafloor. 

"It was as if there was no bottom, but the sonar indicated that there was, indeed, an area below, a bottom. So I gave more rope to the box nets and reached about 3,300 feet. And there still was no bottom! 

"I thought there might be a hole in the bottom's surface, perhaps a cave or something, and the box nets fell into it. But that was not the case, because the sonar images indicated there was a surface down there, something extensive and solid down there. It all was so strange... It intrigued me. 

"To confirm everything again, I used the sonar and it showed the image of an apparent bottom at 2,300 feet deep, but beneath that surface there seemed to be another empty space, and then, the image of another bottom or surface! It was something really weird, unusual. 

"There was no explanation to what was happening. I thought about the possibility that the weird sonar's images were due to the presence of a US Navy submarine vessel down there, but I know how my sonar works, and the images would have been very different. I recognize when the equipment registers a submarine, and they were not images of a fish school either, or a submarine or anything else. I still have no explanation for what happened that day." 

Ventura also revealed that sometimes he and his fellow fishermen heard the muffled sound of "apparent explosions" and "funny noises" which seemed to come from under the seafloor. 

We had received similar reports before from fishermen of the municipalities of Ceiba and Naguabo (also in the east of Puerto Rico island), especially from those who practiced deep-fishing. 

Now, to what do those explosions and strange sounds under the seafloor responded to, geological / telluric natural activity, or to some underground work being done by 'someone' ? 
Maybe by aliens who may be living in the anomalous structures located in the depth? 

The 'South Depth' and the UFO Presence 

Mr. Alicio Ayala, another fisherman resident in the sector of Esperanza, in Vieques, made similar statements about the mysterious 'South Depth', but added a number of UFO sightings he and his fellow fishermen had observed in that zone. 
The fisherman had experienced several encounters with anomalous flying objects while fishing offshore in the early morning hours. Here is what he said about it. 

"I am 70 years old, and I have fished for over 50 years - he said-, and I've seen strange, weird things happen in that area, the South Depth. 

"For example, one morning, still dark and at about 5:00 a.m., suddenly the sky became full of a bright light that was coming from a strange object had appeared suddenly, paced the boat amd then moved to the side, made an angle turn down slowly towards the sea ​​and then disappeared beneath the water."  

"It was engulfed in a bright light of yellow-orange hue, and had a round shape, and was quite large. It was like watching the sun set on the sea, but that did not happen down away at the horizon, but close to us, and it was at five in the morning. It was impossible for it to be the sun setting!" 

"It was not a meteor or a shooting star either, because meteors, shooting stars fall into the sea at speed, because they are being attracted by Earth's gravity, and that object moved slowly across the sky in a horizontal fashion, and then made a curve and went down to the sea very slowly and in a controlled fashion, as if guided by someone." 

He added: "... as it was sinking in the water you could still see the glow of its light, until it disappeared. I remained waiting to see if it came back out, but it did not. This was south of Vieques, in the zone of the South Depth, looking in the direction of the tip of the town of Maunabo, in the main island, where the lighthouse of Maunabo is located at, over there. 

"Many others say they have seen exactly the same things out there, and also in the area close to the El Yunque, in the Big Island (by this he means Puerto Rico) ." 

Also Humanoids 

But this is not all that happens in the south of the island of Vieques. In the southern coastline of that island many residents have encountered humanoid creatures of  the 'Grays' type, which seem to have amphibious characteristics. The creatures come out from the sea and run into the island's lagoons, and after a while return and go back into the sea. 

Below: humanoids beings come out from the sea 
and the lagoons of Vieques.

In photo below: Mr. Aurelio "Yeyo 'Rosa, fisherman 
and a former security guard for the US Navy in Vieques, 
had several encounters with these creatures in the US Navy bases and in the lagoons of the island-municipality.

Is it a coincidence that all these occurrences take place in the same area where we discovered the mysterious giant structures in the seafloor south of the island? We do not think so, we can't rule out the possibility that the sonar system in Carlos Ventura's fishing boat accidentally registered some kind of enormous gate or dimensional portal was being opened in the seafloor of that area. 

Image below: Is there a previously hidden alien base 
in the undersea anomalous structures located in the 
south of Puerto Rico?

Perhaps an opening at the hypotethical alien base or facility located in the anomalous structures we have discovered submerged in that same area? 

As a matter of fact, the quadrangular-shaped structure, as you can see in the images reproduced in this article, is located exactly to the south of the island-municipality of Vieques. 

We will continue reporting on this interesting puzzle.

In March 29, 2012 former President of Cuba, Fidel Castro issued another one of his written "Reflections',  entitled "The need to enrich our knowledge."
In the letter, he discussed several issues related to the dangers for the survival of humankind posed by the current warmongering race that some of the world powers are enforcing, and how the bearers of these actions tend to be characters who suffer from a lack of culture and / or knowledge.
Given the above,  he said a key factor in achieving a high degree of awareness is to obtain the highest possible degree of enrichment of our knowledge.
He discussed some of the current geo-political problems, but suddenly interjected into another subject, the possibility of extraterrestrial life in the universe around us.
About it he said: "When Pope John Paul II visited the country (Cuba) in 1998, more than once before his arrival I talked about various issues with some of his helpers.
"I particularly remember the time when we sat down to dinner in a small room of the Palace of the Revolution with Joaquín Navarro Valls, spokesman of the Pope, sitting across from me. To the right was a kind and intelligent priest that came with the Speaker and accompanied John Paul II at the Masses.
"Curious about the details, I asked Navarro Valls 'Do you think that the immense sky with millions of stars was made for the delight of the inhabitants of the Earth when we deign to look up some nights?' 'Absolutely'- he said. It is the only inhabited planet in the Universe '.
"I turned then to the priest and said, 'What do you think of that father?' He responded:" I think there is a 99.9 percent chance that there is intelligent life on other planets '.
“The answer does not violate any religious principle. Multiplied mentally, who knows how many times the figure, it was the kind of answer I would consider correct.
"After that, that noble priest was always friendly to our country. To share friendship you do not have to share the beliefs.
"Today Thursday, as occurs with increasing frequency, an European entity with knowledge published an article on the subject which reads, verbatim: “There could be thousands of millions of planets not much larger than Earth orbiting faint stars in our galaxy, according to an international team of astronomers.
"The estimated number of 'super-Earths"-planets with up to ten times the mass of the Earth is based on discoveries already made and then extrapolated to include the population of so-called' dwarf stars' of the Milky Way.
"Our new observations show that about 40% of red dwarf stars have a 'super-Earth" orbiting in their habitable zone, in which there may be liquid water on the surface of the planet”,  said Xabier Bonfills, head of the team of Sciences of the Universe Observatory of Grenoble, France.
"Because red dwarfs are so common, there are about 160,000 million of them in the Milky Way, this leads to the surprising results that there are tens of million of these planets in our galaxy alone."
"His studies suggest that there are 'super-Earths' in habitable zones in 41% of cases, ranging from 28 to 95%.
"40% of red dwarf stars have a 'super-Earth" orbiting in the habitable zone, where water can exist in liquid form. "
"That leads to the obvious question as to whether any of these planets is not only habitable, but has life."
"But these stars are given to stellar flares, which can bathe nearby planets with X rays or ultraviolet radiation, which may make less likely the existence of life.
"We have now to find traces of life on those planets," said The researcher from the Observatory of Genoa, Stephane Udry.
"If we can see traces of elements related to life such as oxygen in that light, then we could obtain evidence on whether there is life on the planet. '"
"A plain reading of these reports demonstrates the possibility and necessity to enhance our knowledge, enrich it, knowledge now fragmented and dispersed.
"We may take positions critical of the superficiality with which we address both cultural and material problems. I do not doubt our world is changing much more rapidly than we can imagine."
That much is written by Castro in his reflection, but what he discussed in it opened to us a door to reveal an important information we had known for some time, which due to personal considerations we had not published, until now.

More About the Meeting with John Paul II... and an Area 51 in Russia

In year 2002 the renowned Cuban filmmaker Octavio Cortázar visited Puerto Rico in order to participate in the San Juan Cinemafest (International Film Festival).
Knowing our journalisic expertise in the field of UFO research in Puerto Rico, he called us at the editorial offices of our magazine ENIGMAS del Milenio, asking to meet with us.
We met and he gave us a copy of the first documentary ever made in Cuba about the UFO topic, of which he had been co-producer.
The documentary, entitled "UFOs in Cuba" is an excellent production that seriously and responsibly reports the very interesting UFO incidence of the island of Cuba.
Cortázar was Vice President of the prestigious UNEAC (the Union of Writers and Artists of Cuba), and founder of the International School of Film and Television of Cuba, due to this, he was very respected in his professional field, both in Cuba and abroad. 
The picture below shows Octavio Cortázar (left) and myself (right) during our encouter in San Juan.

During our conversation we exchanged information on UFO cases from our respective countries, Cuba and Puerto Rico, and he revealed to us something very important that had come to his knowledge due to his position of trust as vice director of the UNEAC.
He said that besides Fidel Castro meeting with the Speaker of the Vatican and other aidees he had also discussed the issue of extraterrestrial life with Pope John Paul II himself when he visited Cuba in 1998.
According to Cortázar, Castro asked John Paul II what he thought about the possibility that man was not alone in the universe, and the Pope would have said that the probability of life beyond Earth was a fact.
They also discussed a wide range of data, even related to the observations of so-called Unidentified Flying Objects or UFOs.
We conducted a recorded interview with Cortázar and played the recording in our radio show 'UFO Evidence',  on radio station NotiUno, excluding the details related to the meeting between John Paul II and Fidel Castro and their talk about extraterrestrial life, as Cortázar said he preferred it to be Castro himself who eventually revealed the fact. 

Picture above: Fidel Castro greets Pope 
John Paul II during his visit to Cuba in 1998

We agreed not to publish anything about it until the right time to do it arrived, and now, with what was said by Castro in his reflection, we feel free to do so.
But what is it that provokes Castro's interest in the subject of extraterrestrial life?
Another information offered to us later, which came to from sources we consider irrefutable, gave us the answer to that question.

Castro Saw an Alien Spaceship and the Corpse of its Pilot

Later, during the celebration of the Puerto Rico Books Fair in San Juan, we presented our book 'Vieques: Caribbean UFO Cover-Up of the Third Kind', which deals on an apparent UFO / alien secret program the US NAVY had been involved with in the island-municipality of Vieques, which is part of the Puerto Rican archipelago.
Among other authors who were presenting their books at the fair was Attorney Juan Mari Brás, a well known pro Puerto Rico independence leader and socialist, accompanied by Mrs. Providencia (Pupa) Trabal, another well-known and highly respected pro independence leader, who was very close to him and his family.
While talking with her about the content of our book, she revealed a series of UFO / alien experiences that she and her family had had, and suddenly she said, "You know something? Juan Mari Brás has important information about this matter that was given to him by Fidel Castro. "
Listening that struck us. ¿Fidel Castro talked to attorney Mari Brás about the UFO matter?
Cuban authorities have always been very frugal at official level about the UFO situation, and to hear that Fidel Castro had personally given Juan Mari Brás information on the matter demanded us knowing more about it.
What did Castro say to Mari Brás?, I asked Mrs. Trabal
"Well -she said-, on one ocassion we were talking and the UFO subject came up, I do not recall why, and Juan, though many do not know it, was very interested in the subject, and told us that during one of the meetings he had had in Cuba with Fidel Castro, Fidel had told him something important.
"He said that years before the fall of the Soviet Union, Fidel had traveled to Russia and the Soviet authorities had taken him to a military base in which there was a special laboratory, and they showed him there a UFO, a spaceship, a disk they had captured, and the body of a tall extraterrestrial being, that they kept preserved in a special box-like machine (a cryogenic freezer?)."
'This is very important. It is the first time this information is known’, we told the lady.
"I'm aware of that -she said-, and Juan had not spoken before about this, I think that because he thought Castro had told him this in confidence. But the fact is that he told us about it. And we believed Juan, because he is a person of great integrity, and would not say something like this if it was not true, and mostly if it had to do with Fidel Castro, who was his personal friend and for whom he felt great respect.
In picture shown above: 
Mrs. Providencia 'Pupa' Trabal and journalist Jorge Martín.

Picture above: 
Attorney and Puerto Rican Pro Independece leader Juan Mari Brás.

"I remember that he also told us that the Russians told Castro that they knew the Americans had a similar lab, a research center, with crafts and alien bodies," said Mrs. Trabal finally.
Later, we talked with Atty. Juan Mari Brás and asked him about what the Russians had revealed to Fidel Castro during his visit to the Soviet Union pertaining to the extraterrestrial spacecraft and the corpse of its pilot at the military base, and although he implied it was true, he would not elaborate more on the matter.
Today, with the statements made by Castro in his ‘Reflection,’ we are publishing this information as an exclusive revelation.

¿Plasetsk or Kapushtin Yar?

One question remains; which one was the military base Fidel Castro was taken to by the Soviet authorities, where he saw both the spaceship and the alien's corpse?
Recent reports have arisen independently talking about Area 51 type facilities in Russia, secret research similar to the one allegedly existing in Nevada, USA, where the USA Government allegedly keeps several alien spacecrafts recovered and / or captured, that are being studied to copy their advanced technology, as well as preserved alien corpses in special freezer-containers, for the purpose of examination, among other things.
One of the alleged Russian centers of this kind would be located in the Plasetsk Missile Testing Ground, located in northern Russia, which, 'coincidentally' for many years has been subjected to persistent surveillance by alien crafts.
This has been documented in many official reports, photographs and footage obtained by Russian military authorities.
Under these lines we are showing clear evidence of this, a photo taken by officers Ghenadi Korniev and Vassili Zaitsev on January 5, 1992 at the Plasetsk missile center, in which two disc-shaped UFOs can be observed hovering over the place.

The other center would be in the base of Kapushtin Yar, located in the region of Zhiktur in Astrakhan, Volgograd, in which there allegedly are several large hangars and an underground facility with several floors, in which Russian scientists would be conducting studies on the technology of captured and crashed alien spacecrafts in the territory of the former Soviet Union and actual Confederacy of Independent States, that were recovered by Russian military forces.
Allegedly, this is the main Area 51 type facility in Russia.
Under these lines we are showing a sketch with data on some of the extraterrestrial spacecrafts that the Russian Government keeps at this research center, made by a confidential Russian source, which was delivered to Italian journalist and UFO researcher Constantino Paglialunga in 1997.

Above: Illustration given to italian journalist Constantino Paglialunga
by a confidential source with the description of some of the alien crafts that were being examined by Russian scientists at the Kapushtin Yar center.

It is very possible that the place visited by Fidel Castro, where he saw both the alien spaceship and the alien corpse, was the center in Kapushtin Yar, but this will not be known with certainty until the Cuban leader decides to talk about it.
As former President Fidel Castro opened the door with his recent reflection for the discussion on the topic of extraterrestrial life; would he now reveal, in his own words, the reality of extraterrestrial life visiting us, of which he personally saw evidence during his trip to Russia?
In our view, it would be a great contribution to mankind, as such knowledge would help us to effect a change in our collective consciousness, and perhaps, as a result of that, we would deviate from the path of self destruction in which we currently are.
