- Last Saturday, at about 9:PM, many astonished people
in Calama witnessed a luminous object in the sky. The unknown object changed
colors and carried out flight maneuvers in the western sector of the city.
Ufologist Jaime Ferrer confirmed the authenticity of the images and he
included the case as evidence for a new investigative commission.
- The UFO initially emitted an unusual white brightness.
Shortly afterwards, it suddenly began to change into different colors,
including green, purple, blue, red and orange. The maneuvers and color
changes of the object caused a beautiful lively show that lasted approximately
10 minutes across the night skies of Calama.
- Christian Carrasco, a young man with a digital camcorder,
captured each movement of the object in detail. Thanks to the zooming capabilities
of his digital camera, he was able to capture crystal clear images of the
unusually bright object. Carrasco mentioned his UFO video to his family
and after watching it, the family members decided to record it on VHS.
Although they say that an image is worth a thousand words, the family decided
that the video still needed to be analyzed by ufologists, so they turned
to local ufologist Jaime Ferrer.
- Ferrer, a mechanical engineer, has become one of the
most well known UFO investigators in the area. He analyzed the video and
concluded that any commonly known aircraft could not carry out the displacements
of the luminous figure, considering that the camera was fixed and zoomed
in a place pointing directly to the object. Also, this would present a
size ten times bigger than a star, if we were to simply look at it with
the naked eye.
- The ufologist claims that the wave of UFO sightings in
the Loa region of Chile is being registered and observed abroad with great
interest. Subsequently, he is currently preparing an investigative report
for each one of the cases that, according to him, are many more than those
diffused in the media; therefore, he has begun creating a commission to
investigate those events. He has already begun recruiting personnel from
the area. Because he considers that there are many unsolved facts, he calls
on the authorities to take immediate action regarding this issue. "Undoubtedly,
these unfolding chain of events are difficult to understand; nevertheless,
they should be carefully analyzed to clarify the situation for the sake
of the people", he said. Finally, Ferrer assures that personnel from
NASA have been seen working throughout the local area and they in fact
know in detail the truth. Furthermore, he believes that they are intervening
so the information doesn,t filter to the press.
- Other Sightings
- Last Saturday,s sighting was very similar to another
one that occurred on June 1st in the town of Chuquicamata, which was observed
by many mining workers. They claimed to have seen a luminous sphere traveling
at great speeds near the mining area. Other two similar objects were spotted
some weeks ago during broad daylight; amazingly, local television cameras
also captured these objects. The Loa newspapers reported that they were
weather balloons launched from Brazil.
