CHILE: STRANGE LIGHTS IN THE 5th REGION
***Strange lights engaged in complex maneuvers over Chile's 5th Region startled tourists in the area***
HORCON, December 31, 2004. On Saturday, December 18th at around 20:30 hrs., Alejandra Bauerle was spending time on the beach with some friends near Cau-Cau, Horcón. Upon looking at the sky and the lovely sunset with few clouds in existence, they became aware of some strange lights crossing the firmament. At first they believed they could be aircraft, but after analyzing the contrails left in their wake and the objects' irregular and sudden movements, they dismissed the possibility altogether.
"It started out like a dot (perfectly round) and became larger, first in a vertical line and then turned to the left. We thought it could be a commercial aircraft (flying low) but it was too large to be the trail of an airplane. We looked at it through binoculars and could only see the light," said the witness.
"I'm not sure if the light is the object or rather the impression that it left. In fact, no object at all could be seen, only the tremendous light that became larger and changed course," she added.
Despite the lack of certainty regarding the nature of the phenomenon, the images are being analyzed by experts in anomalous aerial phenomena.
It should be noted that Horcón Beach has been the scene for other UFO-related incidents, such as the case involving a strange luminous dome-shape photographed at sea by some fishermen in 2001.
