An eighth grade student from the Adventist School is still shocked by the image of a UFO he managed to capture with his digital camera on Sunday at 19:30 hours, when he was playing on a streetcorner near his house with some friends.

The boys were playing when they realized that a powerful light could be seen in the sky and near the coast. Diego Peralta ran toward his house at Pasaje Los Capitanes and began to record with his camcorder. The images show a brilliant light that moves at high speed. It is an unidentified round object with a red surface and a partition in the middle.

The student has the recording in his possession and the children who saw the footage believe that it is a UFO. However, the Office of Aeronautics says that an airplane flew over the coast at the time the recording was made.
