UFO reported over downtown Villarrica: witnesses tell their stories

The community of Villarrica is stunned by the sighting of an unidentified flying object on Tuesday morning over the city’s downtown district. The sighting took place at 0700 hours on Tuesday (02.06.07) while a group of workers waited for the bus at the Rural Terminal and vendors for the International Fair set up their stands for the day’s displays. They looked up to the sky to see an enormous object that hung in the air above for nearly 5 seconds. The situation was such that all are in agreement over seeing a large UFO, and that the object was also pursued by other yellow lights at the same time over Villarrica.

The Witnesses Speak

Luis Obregon was one of the first to see this UFO. According to his account, it was after 7 a.m.. “I was waiting for the bus with some friends to get to work. At that time we saw a giant light in the sky, orange in color, with several lights behind it. All of us who were at the Terminal saw it.” The appearance of this UFO at the intersection of Matta and Vicente Reyes streets left everyone astonished. “I was staring at it and couldn’t believe it. It was a large vessel with very powerful lights. Behind it were some 15 smaller lights that glowed brightly. It was evidently a UFO because it was broad daylighta and that was the only thing in the sky,” added Obregon.

But he and his friends weren’t the only ones to see the craft. Workers for the International Fair of Native Products, operating two blocks away from the bus station, also saw the craft. “I was with my dad and we were going to the countryside to look for stuff. Then we saw something in the sky that we at first took for a flare, but that was impossible at the time. It was an orange-colored craft with several lights, that remained sort of parked in the sky and then fell,” said young Andres Gutierrez. The 15 year-old says that while he felt no fear, he was impressed by the object’s speed and its quick movements in the air. “It was a fast ship with powerful movmenets, like a comet or a flare,” he said.

Another worker, who preferred to remain anonymous so as to avoid problems with his co-workers, saw the craft at that same time. “It was after seven o’clock in the morning, perhaps 7:10, when I was off to take the bus. That’s when I saw the UFO. It was a huge ship and it stopped right above us. Before that, I wasn’t much of a believer, but after I saw it, I had no doubt that there is life on other worlds.”

But this wasn’t the only case. Even the community of Quino, 5 kilomters from Victoria, was buzzed by a UFO that caused consternation among locals.
