During the last three days of February, Channel 13 (local TV) news in Santiago, Chile, reported a UFO that was filmed at Pucon during an exhibition of the acrobatic team "Los Halcones" of the Chilean Air Force (FACH).
The object was described as "ring-like," looking like a ring of smoke but very bright. The object was observed moving slowly (about 60 mph), heading east. It was videotaped by two different witnesses, one of whom is an air traffic controller on vacation.
The Meteorological Department said that the object was "strange" and "unknown" to them, not an airplane or other known object. Moreover, the airspace in the Pucon area was restricted that day because of the air show.
This writer also received the following report from Rodrigo Fuenzalida, President of Chile's leading UFO organization, AION.
On March 24, AION researchers initiated "Proyecto Radar" in the south region of Chile near the city of Punta Arenas. They hoped to capture some UFOs on video, due to the numerous sightings that have been taking place there in recent months.
On the night of March 27, they spotted some small lights making strange movements. One of them split into two other lights. Then behind these lights appeared a big UFO, about 40 meters (over 120 feet) long and filled with hundreds of tiny flashing lights. The AION researchers said that some of these flashes were evidently directed to them while filming the event.
They saw the object very clearly and close up. They could not describe the shape of the object, saying it was very strange. They are making drawings of it. Their view lasted approximately 5 minutes, all of which is captured on video. The video has been forwarded to AION's headquarters in Santiago, Chile, where it will be analyzed.
An important aspect of this case is that there were military intelligence officers present who saw it all and helped in analyzing the UFO, discarding any type of known object or machine made on earth. The view of the object was so clear that it was classified as a "SHIP," not UFO.
The general feeling of the observers was that the "SHIP"/UFO wanted to be seen and videotaped. As of March 28, "Proyecto Radar" researchers intend to continue their field observations for another week.
[Luis Sanchez has told CNI News that he will attempt to acquire and send some still frames from the AION videotape as soon as possible.]
