17 Minute UFO Video From Comodoro Rivadavia, Argentina
A resident of Comodoro Rivadavia claimed having filmed an unidentified flying object (UFO) over Cerro Chenque, in the vicinity of this city of Chubut, last Friday morning. Marcelo Soto claimed that the object apparenly rested on that mountain and he was able to record it from his home in the Jorge Newberry neighborhood.
The tape shows a phenomenon that is very similar to the one seen in recent days over Gobernador Ugarte (Pcia. de Buenos Aires), said Soto to a local FM radio station.
The recorded image is "unedited, and from the center of the luminous sphere, which changes colors, it can be seen how other lights emerge from within."
"I didn't know what it was, but it attracted my attenion. I wanted to have the best possible image and that's why I left the camera alone, pointing to where the UFO was, and theyn I connected [the camera] to the TV set. That's when I got scared," he added.
"The object approached and receded. There was some kind of light in the center of the sphere that changed color and something that really drew my attention: other lights come out of the center of the circle toward the side.".
In this regard, the director of Comodoro Rivadavia's airport, Roberto Romero, explained that Air Force radars "have not recorded any sightings of any luminous objects, nor have aircraft reported anything like it" in recent days, adding: "If now they say there's a video on the presence of a UFO or shining object, well, then that can't be refuted."
