The Badajoz UFO Incident refers to the events that happened at the dawn of November 12, 1965, at the Base Aérea de Talavera la Real (Talavera la Real Air Base), located in the province of Badajoz, Spain. Two soldiers, José María Trejo and Juan Carrizosa Luján, claimed to have seen and shot a being of unknown origin.

Both were patrolling the fuel storage area of the base. At 1:45 am they were about 60 meters away from each other when they heard a noise similar to radio interference. Suddenly, the noise became an acute whistle that lasted 5 minutes. José asked Juan to follow him on an inspection around the area, fearing sabotage.

The whistle ceased 5 minutes later. Soon after, they spotted an intensely bright light in the sky, that lasted 15 seconds. Another guard arrived with a guard dog.

Together, they moved all across the area. When they arrived at a certain point, they heard the sound of eucalyptus twigs being broken. The dog was released and rushed towards the point where the sound of broken twigs came from. Soon the dog returned sick. The soldiers urged the dog to return to the point several times, each time with the same result. Eventually, the dog started to walk in circles around the three soldiers (a technique taught to the guard dogs, meant to protect their handlers).

Trejo spotted a human-shaped green light to his left. The being was very tall, about 3 meters. It seemed to be formed of small light points, and the brightness was more intense along its edges. The head was small and covered by something resembling a helmet. The arms were very long and were crossed. There was no sight of either hands or feet.

Trejo fell down at his knees and fainted, which offered his friends the chance to open fire on the creature. Between 40 and 50 bullets were fired, and as the being was hit, its brightness became more intense and it disappeared.

While Trejo was being assisted, the same sound as before was heard, lasting 10–15 seconds.

The next morning, some 50 men searched the whole area. They discovered that there weren't any bullet casings of the shots fired by the soldiers, nor any holes where bullets were supposed to have struck the wall behind the creature. However, the Air Force concluded that the machine guns were indeed fired.

Even today, there is no answer as to what the soldiers had fought with. But most people involved in the case agree that it was something involving extraterrestrials.
