PERU: Chance UFO over Islas Ballestas
** A report from Raul Oscar Chaves**

The photograph was taken over Islas Ballestas to the south of Lima, in the vicinity of the Paracas Peninsula.

At this location, Mariano P. undertook an effort to capture the particular characteristics of these islands, where water drills through solid rock, creating tunnels and natural arches. This task was accomplished by boat, due to the difficulty of accessing the site on the shore, and more importantly, the ban on landing to avoid affecting the natural habitat of numerous animals and seabirds.

Upon returning to La Pampa and after having processed the photographic material, Mariano detects the presence of an unidentified flying object (UFO) on the upper right hand corner of the image. This photo was taken on July 8, 2007.
