- The community of Calama, Chile witnessed yet another
UFO sighting. Last Thursday, after sunset, at around 19:35 hours and with
clear skies, a strange luminous object was sighted around most of the south
side of the city. The object moved in a northeast direction towards the
local mountain region.
- Jaime Ferrer, local UFO investigator was inside his home,
when his 15-yeor-old son told him about the strange object near the local
airport. Jaime ignored the young man,s claim thinking that he was joking.
The teenager went ahead and took his dad,s digital camera. Immediately,
he went back outside and managed to take at least 4 crystal-clear pictures
of the object. Little Jaime Andres and his younger brother described the
details of the sighting.
- "We were playing ball outside, when suddenly, I
saw a light with a weird shape. It was hard to describe it because it kept
changing into different forms. It had a pale color and about every 10 seconds,
it sent out a series of very bright flashes of red lights in two opposite
directions at the same time". Said the teenager.
- "It was not an airplane". He continued. "As
the object moved towards the Loa airport, I thought it was just a plane.
However, after I noticed that its speed was about twice as fast as the
rest of the aircraft, I decided to go and get the camera. I was able to
take 4 pictures of it. Later, I watched how it continued its path towards
the mountain area. Finally, we lost sight of it after reaching the San
Pedro and San Pablo volcanoes, which means that it was definitely no airplane".
- "Previously, I have taken photos of airplanes during
their midair flights, but the sensitivity of the camera at night is very
low; as a result, the camera does not capture most of them. Nevertheless,
this time, I was very surprised. It was amazing; the light changed into
many shapes and forms. My 8 year-old brother told me that it looked like
a Mickey Mouse with red ears as he was staring at it right next to me".
