Last Friday at 10:55 pm a strange Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) appeared over the skies of Nechí ( a municipality of Antioquia). The first witness to report it was Ana Madera, who went to the third floor of her house and immediately called for her husband, Hipólito Zola. Both observed the strange circular figure with yellow and red hues that remained suspended in the sky for nearly five minutes.

The couple told their neighbors and even had enough time to activate a camcorder with which to prove the UFO's apparition. "It was a large circle that could be clearly seen through the camera. However, we were frightened because we thought it was a meteorite," Hipolito Zola told Radio Caracol.

Mr. Zola added that those neighbors who were asleep that night and could not see the UFO have visited his home to see the video and many of them "left terrified, even the Nechí police chief."

The UFO remained in the sky, according to Hipólito Zola, until 11:15 over Nechí on that unforgettable Friday night. The community is located some 10 hours from Medellín by car.
