CHILE: A UFO OVER VALPARAISO?
A strange light in the sky caused expectation in Viña del Mar and Valparaiso on Sunday night. The large luminous source remained visible over both cities for nearly half an hour.
The phenomenon, according to some of the persons who witnessed it (including a photographer from the UPI news agency) was an intense, large light that was resting at a considerable elevation over the hills between the country's main port and the "Garden City".
The brightness -- visible after 22:30 hours -- could be clearly seen from various sectors of both cities due to the object's considerable luminosity and despite the fact that a slight fog covered the city.
Eyewitnesses state that the light increased and decreased in intensity and that green and blue lights could be seen beside it at times. After remaining in view for half an hour, the brightness vanished altogether.
Sightings of this type have been reported in recent days in this area, causing expectation in public opinion due to the existence of a photographic record of same.
Local authorities have yet to comment on these sightings.
