SANTIAGO, March 30. - During the month of February and in the midst of summer vacation in the vicinity of Lake Llanquihue, a variety of aerial phenomena were reported that were subsequently associated with the UFO phenomenon.

Farmers from neighboring communities furnished eyewitness reports in strange lights with irregular movements, usually vanishing from sight near the Osorno Volcano.

One such sighting was recorded on Jorge Quinn's photo camera as he spent his vacation near the site. The image was completely accidental and the UFO's presence was discovered only after his return to Santiago de Chile. The image shows a cigar-shaped UFO, a configuration catalogued as one of the most common and largest in the UFO phenomenon.

It should be noted that Southern Chile is considered as a "hot zone" on a global level as regards the presence of unidentified flying objects. Over the past 20 years, highly interesting photographs of unknown objects have been recorded in the vicinity of the Osorno Volcano.
