CHILE: Possible UFO Detected over the Cordillera

Felix Reales Vilca, a correspondent for Chilevision and TVN, recorded an unidentified flying object with his camcorder over the mining region of Dona Ines de Collahuasi. The video was taken while the newsman was at an elevation 3400 meters and 800 meters over the surface.

In the sky, in broad daylight and in the vicinity of the Urruputuncu Volcano, he managed to see a multicolored light that moved to and fro. He was standing with a group of miners, who were shocked by the sight. All indicated that it was an unidentified flying object, as the zone is not a route employed by airliners.

Reales turned the images over to TVN to have them examined by specialists in order to ascertain or dismiss the likelihood of the object being a UFO.

Reales explained that "he was engaged in recording work at the mining operations when the miners told me that there was a UFO. It could be clearly seen, but through the camera I could see that it was a powerful, multicolored light and we were facing an unidentified flying object."
