Peru: The Mothership That Wasn't?

The spectacular image of an elongated, brilliant object in the night sky, videotaped by residents of Barrio Alto in Lima, the Peruvian capital, was not a UFO "mothership" according to some.

A report on Radio Capital, and an entry the Nuestro Peru website, state that the women who excitedly shared their find with the rest of the world were in fact videotaping a structure on a distant hill: a "Noah's Ark"-shaped place of worship being built by an Evangelical congregation.

According to Nuestro Peru: "The object was recorded for half an hour on one day and for 50 minutes the next, but is only the lights of the construction site."

The structure is 33 meters long, state sources.

Peru: A Mothership Over Lima?

Residents of Barrios Altos claim having witnessed what could well be the first UFO sighting of 2011. With the video in hand, one expert has already attested to the authenticity of the homemade recording.

The shots were taken on Tuesday, January 4 from Jirón Wari in Barrios Altos, where a group of neighbors equipped themselves with two camcorders and taped -- from different angles -- the oscillating movements of an unidentified flying obect for nearly 30 minutes.

"It's a UFO. You'd have to be somewhat thick to deny it," said Julia Gutierrez, one of the witnesses, who further added that it is common to see such sights in the area, which tend to leave local residents shaken.

"It's definitely a UFO. It's only necessary to corroborate with the Jorge Chavez airport to see if any unidentified radar contacts were picked up at the time," notes UFO expert Mario Zegarra in a statement to ATV.
