PERU: UFO PHOTOGRAPHED OVER THE UBINAS VOLCANO

According to the preliminary report by Dr. Anthony Choy, this UFO was photographed by Marco Antonio Zeballos, a member of the Civil Defense Regional Committee (CRDC), when the witness was in the town of Matalaque preparing to evacuate families affected by the volcano.

Researcher Choy says that the photo has not yet been subjected to detailed scrutiny. However, in his opinion, there is a high likelihood that it is an anomalous object that crossed the camera's field of view, without entirely dismissing that it could be an insect or bird that flew past quickly, causing distortion in the image.

He also reported that Mr. Zeballos did not observe the probable UFO and only realized its presence when the photos were reviewed, adding that this is not the first time that sightings have occurred in that part of Peru. This suggests a possible relationship between anomalous aerial phenomena and natural or human disasters.

The Ubinas Volcano has presented activity since April 19, 2006, producing audible explosions and the formation of eruption columns of up to 3 km high. For this reason, families living near the volcano have been evacuated.

Dr. Choy highlighted the importance that the photo was taken by an active official with the National Civil Defense Institute, as well as his openness by providing the image to a reporter for the "Correo de Tacna" newspaper.
