Colombia: Residents of Barranquilla Started by a Light in the Sky


The case occurred at noon. A video shows onlookers crowding the exterior of a shopping center, looking at the sky.

At noon on Thursday, citizens piled outside the entrance to a shopping center to look at a strange light that shone over the downtown Barranquilla for a few minutes.

One of the people present at the site took notice when he saw a street vendor looking at the sky. Moments later, the man alerted everyone, saying there was a dot in the sky "changing colors."

At first the passers-by thought it was a drone, but changed their minds when they noticed it was at a higher elevation than is customary for drones. They later opined that it was a police helicopter, but the object remained fixed in place.



Finally, some said the object that could be seen between the Cathedral and the Nelmar building could be "an alien spacecraft". In any event, the phenomenon attracted dozens of pairs of eyes bent on dispelling its mystery.

The Oficina dels Servicio de Pronósitcos y Alertas (Forecasting and Alert Office) of the Institute of Hydrology, Meteorology and Environmental Studies (IDEAM) claimed having no reports whatsoever about the phenomenon or unidentified flying objects seen at noon over Barranquilla.

The agency viewed the video and the images, saying they would subject this material to analysis "to see what might have happened."

Meanwhile, a person from the No. 3 Combat Air Command, an operating unit of the Air Force stationed in Malambo, Atlántico, claimed "having no information in his regard."

Finally, an employee at the Ernesto Cortissoz Airport stated that no object was seen and that it would be "very hard to do so" because the other object would have to have technology similar to their own.

Mexico: Local Residents "Saw" a UFO

VALLADOLID - Residents of Tixcacalcupulclaimed being startled the day before yesterday by the sight of an unidentified flying object prowling the skies around 5:30 in the afternoon.

The sighting lasted some 20 minutes, according to several witnesses to the event.

According to members of the community, someone suddenly looked to the heavens and saw the moon, which was barely becoming visible in its waning phase, but then realized that there was a luminous source of white light moving slowing. They added that it "appeared" to be circling the moon at a given distance.

The object moved to the right and was still for a few minutes before resuming its motion and apparently placing itself under the moon. Twenty minutes later, it positioned itself to the moon's left, visually closer to Earth, becoming slightly larger when viewed, according to interviewees.

It was around six in the evening when the white light turned yellow and disappeared, as the moon was now slightly brighter.

The object was clearly visible in Tixcacalcupul, where people pointed at it, asking others to join their sighting - children and adults alike.

People did not know what it was, but someone was heard to say it was an alien spaceship since "it could not be an airplane at that distance. Furthermore, it remained static at times and moved slowly around the moon," said others.

A report by Juan Antonio Osorio Osorno.

Argentina: Did a UFO Nearly Collide With a Stunt Plane in Varese?

A reader of LA CAPITAL recorded a strange object coming far too close to a stunt plane over Playa Varese.

An Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) seems to be flying right behind the stunt airplane the usually thrills beachgoers with its acrobatics, as shown in a video submitted by a reader of LA CAPITAL.

The interesting sequence was recorded on Gustavo Galarza's iPhone on 18 February as he headed to work on a bicycle. He witnessed the airplane doing cartwheels in the sky, and surprised by the spectacle offered by the flying machine in the Torreon del Monje area, he decided to shoot some slow-motion footage. "When I played back the video, I zoomed in and suddenly saw a white dot flying past at full speed."

While it is difficult to see it at first, the object appears over the airplane's tail at the 13-second mark. The zoom frame improves the sighting. At the end of the video, there is another close-up showing the UFO flying at top speed, despite the slow-motion effect.

This isn't Galarza's first sighting. On November 5, 2017, the man was pedaling his way to work on a rainy day, recording the storm on his phone in hopes of catching a lightning bolt. "I watched the playback when I got to work and saw a white dot flying amid the clouds."

Mexico: The San Mateo UFOs and Contacteeism

Date: 02.17.2018
An article by Yohanan Diaz Vargas


Mexico: The San Mateo UFOs and Contacteeism

The municipality of Naucalpan in the State of Mexico has been the setting for major sightings in the UFO case histories.

We should remember the "mothership" recorded by UFO hunters Pedro Hernandez and Alfredo Carrillo over Ciudad Satelite during the afternoon hours of May 9, 2000, showing a yellow object disgorging dozens of spheres on its left and on its right. They were small dark-grey craft, while the larger object rotated at a lower elevation.

The UFO videos recorded in 2014 over Colonia San Mateo in that very same Mexican municipality show a series of anomalous flying objects that are invisible to the human eye.

While it may seem incredible, these objects were detected by night vision equipment flying some 20 to 30 meters over the buildings adjacent to the dwelling of another UFO hunter - Fernando Lucero.

"The dogs began to bark, becoming restless, as if aware of the objects' presence. No one realizes it because no one can see them," he said.

Surely there is a civilization coming to our world on a research mission, interested in learning more about humans with our urges and passions, but also to study the general traits of our planet, leading us to understand the reason that an increase of activity in the Popocatepetl Volcano results in an increase in UFO sightings, as they would be studying the progress of this colossal mountain.

In other words, when they come to our world, they arrive with an agenda laid out before them and not to engage in interplanetary tourism, hoping for random discoveries. A group of scientists, for example, who go to another country to research a problem that bedevils a population, setting up a work plan based on the first information gleaned, compiling as much data as possible.

In the 1960s, Mexican television aired a TV commercial showing a flying saucer and two aliens flying over the tower emblem that characterized Ciudad Satelite, where the sale of real estate was being promoted.

"Ciudad Satelite" was dubbed thus by being a residential area adjacent to the vast urban spread of Mexico City. It has since become part of the Valle de Mexico, surrounded by millions of inhabitants.

The Tlatilca Culture settled in the Municipality of Naucalpan. It held a belief in the Tlamatines, the men of power, the men who contacted the 'other realities" that we can find exhibited at the Museo de la Cultura Tlatilca, located on the Périferico (beltway). They give us the impression of looking at a person wearing an odd spacesuit.

Contacteeism

What are the common points between contactees and extraterrestrials? It is believed, at times, that a contactee's testimony is the continuation of another experiencer, and that they speak to the same species, which is in theory imparting the same message.

Mexico has a rich case history with significant cases whose messages have addressed matters ranging from matters of ecology, philosophy, astronomy, technology and medicine, among others.

The messages received today are quite similar to the ones that circulated in the 1950s. Could it be that humanity has not understood the information given, prompting them to repeat the message in the belief that we lack a historic memory? We are therefore given the message one more time. Both options are valid. We cannot know this for sure, but what we must take into is that the new generation of contactees in our country is giving us new content and messages.

"We must show greater unity as human beings, and love must prevail above all. We must not forget that we are not alone in the universe," but in recent days a new concept has been developed, known as "A Call to Planet Earth", in which four contactees - Ivonne Mantilla, Jurlen Malak, André Malak and Daniel Harari - will share the latest information, ranging from planetary changes to the matters that concern the visitors to our world.

Inexplicata - 3,000,000!



INEXPLICATA - Three Million Views

It's not a paid holiday or anything, but it's a red-letter day for those of us at the Institute of Hispanic Ufology.

Our efforts have earned us our three millionth visitor this month - a landmark we thought we'd never achieve, and a modest one at that, in a field where the average web page or blog receives that much traffic in a month. Our total score may be higher, taking into account that IHU came into existence in late 1998, when visits were tracked through web counters that weren't always accurate.

This 3M mark is more thanksgiving day of sorts, to those who were there then and are here now. First to our contributors - to Guillermo Giménez and Planeta UFO for funneling information on the latest cases in the Southern Cone to our attention, Luis Burgos of ICOU/FAO, Gustavo Fernández, Carlos Iurchuk, Marcelo Metayer, Jose Antonio Roldan, Rosa Santizo, Claudio Mora of La Esfera Azul, Antonio Salinas, José A. Martínez Echevarría, Ruben Sobrino, Quique Mario of CEUFO, Andrea and Silvia Pérez Simondini of Visión Ovni, Manuel Carballal, Leopoldo Zambrano, Marco Reynoso, Gloria Coluchi, Angel Carretero, Salvador Freixedo and Magdalena del Amo, Luis Emilio Annino, Raul Oscar Chaves, Patricia Hervias, Mercedes Casas, Lucy Guzmán, Luiseppi Quiñones, Rubén Morales, Carlos Rojas, Deborah Goldstern, Jose Manuel Garcia Bautista, José Pérez, Fabio Picasso, Liliana Núñez, Angel Briongos, Josep Guijarro, Bruno Cardeñosa, César Reyes de Roa and my heartfelt apologies to those who I have overlooked, and Dr. Rafael Lara Palmeros for the notion of creating a "virtual institute" back in 1998. Next, those who have been both kind and interested enough in circulating our information through their webs and newsgroups: Patrick Huyghe and his team at The Anomalist, whose support has been unwavering; Lon Strickler at Phantoms and Monsters, John Hayes at UFOINFO, Frank Warren at The UFO Chronicles, Robert Frola at The Ufologist magazine, Lex Lonehood at Coast to Coast, and other friends whom I will neglect to mention in haste, aware that sins of omission are the worst. Mea culpa and begging your indulgence.

So...where do we go from here? Three million views seemed unreachable in 2012, and four million (never mind five!) seem as unlikely as reaching Wolf 359 for a quick sojourn on planet UMMO. In any event, we shall endeavor to do our best to keep our readers apprised of the latest developments in the fields of UFO and the paranormal for the foreseeable future.

Thank you!

Mexico: UFOs Appearing on Google Maps Imagery

Mexico: UFOs Appearing on Google Maps Imagery

This news item caused a shock among Google Maps users: Are UFOs flying over the beaches at Tulum?

Mexico's Caribbean beaches are among the most idyllic and spectacular in Latin America and the world at large. Tulum is specifically one of the destinations most favored by local and foreign tourists, located on the Caribbean coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, known for its well-preserved ruins and turquoise sea. However, this location was the topic of conversation in recent months due to images appearing on Google Maps that went viral on social media. For what reason? Keep reading.

Thanks to the Google Street View tool, which enables a variety of places and destinations worldwide to be located, Google Maps was able to pick up two unidentified flying objects (UFOs) flying over the Tulum Beaches. Is it real? The answer is yes. However, what the objects really are remains a mystery.



The imagery on Google Maps show a normal day on a Tulum beach in broad daylight. It will suffice to zoom in slightly to note the presence of two objects hovering - or flying - in the clear skies.

While distant from each other, both shapes are 'flying' relatively close to each other. Are they really UFOs? Are flying saucers visiting beachcombers on Tulum?

Google Maps users have posited a number of theories regarding what they have seen in the photos. Skeptics note that the spheres are drones or aircraft, but lovers of ufological mysteries reject this suggestion, arguing that the vehicles shown are not entirely round nor completely white. Furthermore, a drone would not look so large at a distance.

The Google Maps images went viral in various social networks and the debate event went beyond Mexico's borders, with the subject being discussed in neighboring countries. See the photos in our gallery and draw your own conclusions.

Dominican Republic: UFO and Alien Experiences and Sightings

Dominican Republic: UFO and Alien Experiences and Sightings
By Bienvenido Pérez García

There can be no doubt that the imagination is a powerful creative engine and a recreator of powerful images and even sensory perceptions and illusions. The principle is well established by the behavioral sciences, declaring that "our minds tend to fill the voids when faced with what we cannot understand", and giving rise to countless stories of saucers, flying craft and encounters with alien beings which have been subsequently explained or dismissed with the knowledge offered by new technological applications.

The following experiences and sightings, however, hail from all parts of the world - recorded incidents and evidence that continue to defy expert analysis of films and testimony - including hypnotic regression and lie detector testing. While this does not ultimately lead us to accept the evidence and believe in its implications outright, it does cause us to reconsider this phenomenology.

[...]

The skies and territory of the Dominican Republic have been prolix in sightings and contact with vehicles and entities that definitely do not belong to this world, dimension or time. In the early 1970s, such phenomena multiplied overwhelmingly and have remained at more or less the same level of intensity.

Tony Raful, a scholar and author, had a shocking experience that dispelled his skepticism - if any - about the existence of aliens and their presence on Earth.

He was driving his Volkswagen along the one-time coastal highway between San Pedro de Macorís and Boca Chica in September 1972, accompanied by a friend and attorney Dr. José Florentino Sánchez, returning from La Romana, where they had visited a former classmate. About some fifteen kilometers before reaching the crossroads leading to the famous bathing resort, precisely where there used to be - or still is - a small inlet, the time being approximately 8:30 p.m., Raful and attorney Sánchez were chatting about the nature and effect of propaganda, particularly of the political kind, and how it distorts the mindset of societies. "You see that stuff about UFOs?" asked the attorney. "I'm certain its propaganda, particularly from the United States, used to distract the population from serious social problems."

Tony, who listened and answered in monosyllables, decided to answer the statement while not fully in agreement with it. "No, that's not how I see them, Florentino. There are signs that there's much more involved, things we don't understand yet and there are many accounts of phenomena lacking a sound explanation."

Sánchez then resorted to Carl Jung, arguing that it was a result of visions from the collective unconscious. At that precise moment, the Volkswagen developed a noise that its occupants interpreted as a flat tire. Tony pulled over in a straight segment of the narrow - and dangerous - two-way highway, stepping out to inspect the cause, marveling at the clear night lit by the full moon. He found that the car's tires were in good order and boarded the vehicle again. Only then, the engine wouldn't turn over.

"We'll have to push it," said Florentino. Upon getting out of the car, an oval shaped object appeared at some six or seven meters overhead, looking to all extents and purposes like a helicopter.

"Careful!" Tony shouted, "It’s a helicopter and it seems to be malfunctioning. It could head our way."

"But what are you saying, Tony? Can't you see it doesn't have any blades?"

The future award-winning author confirmed what his friend was saying, further noticing that the oblong artifact measured roughly some four meters long, was copper-colored and had narrow slits for windows, one beside the other and issuing light. The object was some ten meters distant, motionless by the palm trees. Small yellow lights, pulsating gently on the object's contour, were now visible on the strange and now frightening object. Tony and Florentino got in the car and tried starting it again, unsuccessfully. They rolled up the windows and locked both doors. The UFO remained in the air, motionless for over a minute, before heading off toward the sea. At a distance of 100 meters or more, over the sea, it hovered two meters above the surface for some six or seven seconds. Suddenly, it took off at a speed greater than a Formula One race car along the ocean's surface. The poet and intellectual believes it travelled at 600 kilometers an hour from zero, vanishing into the horizon.

They were still stunned when they heard the loud and sudden braking noise of a passenger bus right behind them. The vehicle disgorged its driver and passengers, anxiously asking what was it they had just seen speeding off to the sea, talking off "like the devil's slingshot" along the water's surface. The driver told Tony and his passengers that upon seeing the object from behind at some distance, the bus began to hesitate and could not move forward until the artifact moved toward the sea. Our friend Raful and his passengers could not - and still cannot - find an answer to what they saw. Some ten minutes later, having recovered from the experience, Tony managed to fire up the "bug" again, continuing their return journey to the capital without incident.

In August 1972, coinciding with storm warnings, our brother Marcos Rafael was driving along the beachfront heading home after noon. He stopped, along with other drivers and witnesses, who also got out of their cars - Don Pedro (Peter) Morales Troncoso among them - to look at something resembling a medium-sized metallic cube that seemed to be the tip or upper section of a larger submerged object, seemingly coming out of the mouth of the Ozama River, visible from the Monument to the Financial Independence of Santo Domingo, popularly known as "the female obelisk." It moved speedily along the water's surface and out to sea, causing very slight waves, although it was possible to see some thin streams - eight of them - surrounded by a steamy spray that went up into the air, projected at height of possibly a meter and a half. A submarine sighted within 20 meters of the shore? The object headed away and was visible for seven minutes before vanishing from sight. Don Peter Morales and my brother, when interviewed, still cannot define the nature of the strange object, but it was clearly "not a submarine like the ones we know."

Many Dominican hikers and mountaineers have reported nocturnal encounters with flying objects that do not compare with anything they've seen before. Some of them have flown over their heads at low altitude in the afternoon, as they reached their destination, or camping during the night. They had a variety of shapes and colors: saucers, luminous cigar-shaped craft, opaque and triangular vessels with lights along their edges...a lengthy menu of sightings. The mountains of the Cordillera Central in the heart of Cibao are the prime location for these phenomena.

José Leandro Ferrúa, the gifted architect, told me the spellbinding story of what happened to him and his wife Hilcia and some friends whom they were entertaining on the terrace of a second story residence in Santo Domingo's Av. Anacaona. From the corner of his eye, he was able to notice a flash. Looking toward Mirador del Sur park, located in front of the terrace on which they were seated, he exclaimed: "Look what's behind those trees!" pointing out the spot to all present. Some seventy meters away, they saw a spherical upper segment protruding from amid the dense tree boughs, nearly in front of their residence. It issued bright flashes of light that changed colors, nearly pulsing, from orange to red to white, to yellow and greenish blue.

The object, seemingly large, rose and became visible above and behind the trees with a brief and swift rise that made it visible halfway, prompting one of the guests to shout: "Careful, it's coming toward us!"

No sooner had he uttered this warning than the object descended again, as if hiding behind the trees, said José Leandro. Suddenly, as if gaining momentum, it lifted itself quickly into the sky, showing off its enormous size, the full radiance of its changing colors, and disappearing into the heights at an incredible speed.

Miguel A. Rivera, a broadcaster and art critic, refused to tell his story for many years, until finally agreeing to tell us about the uncanny experience he had as he returned from a social engagement in AcroArte sometime in mid-March 1988. As he returned home around 1:30 a.m. with his wife and sister, both he and his passengers were able see - as from the moment they crossed the Duarte Bridge - a well-defined, rather small object, no greater than the size of two basketballs in diameter - with changing colors, following them at a height of eighty meters, pulling ahead of them a short distance away and then falling back.

Rivera, of a rather calm disposition, felt more upset or uncomfortable than concerned about the thing following them. Increasing or lowering his vehicle's speed was fruitless, as the object was always near. Approaching the filling station located at the intersection of Av. España and Las Américas, he pulled up to the pump and stopped his Mazda station wagon in order to wait for the object to depart. The device stopped above the Av. España overpass with a curious up-and-down movement. After realizing that the object was not going, they decided to continue their journey. As they re-entered the expressway, the object switched to the right and toward the sea. It paralleled them for a while at a distance and disappeared.

The passengers continued their journey with more composure until the mysterious ball reappeared around Tres Ojos, flying back from the sea and hovering vertically some eighty meters ahead and at the height of a streetlamp. The three passengers were shocked, and the two women panicked. Rivera, now disturbed, engaged in calming conversation. He continued to drive. The object, matching his speed and ahead of him, led him until he entered his neighborhood, located in the Los Frailes sector, where he lived at the time. In a burst of courage, and ignoring his family's pleas, he stepped out of the car to challenge the object, which again remained static aside from its vertical sway. It was then that he boarded the vehicle hurriedly, speeding home to rid himself to the disconcerting, and now frightening, disturbance.

Finally reaching home amid great apprehension, they left the car outside and ran inside, locking themselves in. Once in his room, he opened a blind facing the back yard to make sure that his enigmatic pursuer had gone. He attested, to his shock and dismay, that the blazing object was a few meters above the dividing wall, apparently waiting.

There appears to be a relationship between the occurrence of natural phenomena and disasters and manifestations of strange flying objects. Before and after earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions, UFOs have been seen around the event by many people, and have been captured on film. On September 3, 1930, as I wrote in the article "Memorias Maternas del San Zenón" (Mother's Memories of the San Zenón Hurricane), I mention the appearance, around six o'clock in the evening, of a large, spherical object whose flashes of light were distinguishable despite the heavy rains and severe winds at an estimated distance of some two kilometers from the shore, 100 meters above the water. It was seen by many residents of the capital city living near the sea, and it remained motionless for a long time, despite the fierce hurricane winds.

But if sightings of strange vehicles are surprising, physical contact with intelligent beings not belonging to the human race is even more intimidating. These are the so-called close encounters of the third kind.

Two employees of the Evaldra Discotheque in Costanza headed home at 2:30 a.m., at the end of their shift, one Saturday in September 1988. Along the road, in the shadow of an alleyway, they saw the silhouette of a rather small man, with a longish green jacket, similar to the kind worn by soldiers in cold weather. They stopped to see who it was, since everybody knew each other in Constanza back then. Noticing that the human figure was motionless and silent, its eyes covered by what looked like round dark spectacles, they asked if he needed anything. No sooner had they asked than the figure shook, extended its arms sideways, and emitted a vibrating, buzzing sound, like that of a mechanism. Its eyes or goggles turned red. Rafelito and his companion ran in such a way that their legs could've scraped their necks, engaging in that timeless human speed trial: running out of fear.

While an encounter with beings or craft from another world may seem exciting, revealing or romantic to those seeking a sighting or a close encounter, it is good to bear in mind that many people have suffered negative effects after being in the proximity of these phenomena. On a little farm in San Francisco de Macorís, here in the Dominican Republic, a couple who refuse to disclose their names was awakened and illuminated by a hot, blue-green light at 3:30 in the morning amid a piercing buzzing sound. When the husband went outside to see what was going on, he found that a flying disk was changing colors at a distance of 25 to 30 meters. Frightened, he re-entered his home and the heat and light intensified. After it was over, the couple was left with irritated eyes and throat trouble for nearly a week. Burns, headaches and very serious damage to witness health have been reported elsewhere.

Eyewitness accounts to Dominican UFO phenomena are vast and abundant, as well as the sightings of strange intelligent beings in our beloved Dominican soil, too many to include in a single article. There yet remain eerie and stunning experiences involving vessels, beings and strange areas of the country which give even skeptics pause. We will provide a second part, for which we have kept the best of our harvest, if this prestigious publication should agree to make them known.

Argentina: New UFO Sighting in Pocito

"Guardianes del cielo cuyano" (Guardians of the skies over Cuyo) claim having seen a new UFO in Pocito. The UFO watchers allegeldy saw an unidentified flying object in the sky and recorded it on a camera.

"Guardianes del cielo cuyano" had a new sigthing this past January. The UFO hunters claim having seen an unidentified flying object which they recorded on a camera, subsequently uploading the footage to social media.

"Please excuse our absence. A lot of work and little time. Much new material to be shared. We will catch up little by little. In this instance, we present an interesting video that tracks a rather suspicious object, leading us to the discovery of a seemingly stationary anomaly in deep space. As always, we leave the matter to your own judgement. We await your comments and conclusions, which are important to the sky guardian community," wrote the youngsters in their Facebook page beside the video.

Chile: Satellite Records 400 Kilometer Wide UFO (1999)



Chile: Satellite Records 400 Kilometer Wide UFO
By Centinela66.com and Conspiraciones1040.blogspot.com


On Tuesday, January 26, 1999, television audiences in Chile were startled when a Santiago station broadcast satellite images showing a disk-shaped UFO measuring hundreds of kilometers in diameter.

The video images were broadcast on television from the Universidad Catolica (UC-TV) on Channel 13. It was recorded by the GOES-8 environmental satellite on two separate occasions a few years ago.

Chilean Ufologist Luis Sanchez Perry stated that the program "showed an infrared image taken by GOES-8 on July 17, 1992, clearly displaying a disk-shaped object in outer space over the Pacific Ocean to the west of Chile."



According to Mario Vilches, the gigantic saucer measured 400 kilometers (240 miles) in diameter.

The July 1992 image was taken by Servicio Aereo Fotometrico Ltda, an aerial photography company located in Santiago de Chile, the nation's capital.

"The lines visible in front of the UFO correspond to electromagnetic interference emanating from the UFO itself," Sanchez explained.

At the moment the image was recorded, GOES-8 was in a 21,600 mil geostationary orbit above the Earth. The enormous disk appeared to be moving at the same orbital speed as the satellite - approximately 6,696 miles per hour.

"Three images were taken in 10 minute intervals and the UFO was clearly visible," Sanchez added.

The second GOES-8 video was recorded on 7 April 1996. Although the image vanished quickly from the GOES-8 website, it was downloaded by the Centro Meteorológico Regional de Antofagasta (Chile). The image shows "the UFO over the Atlantic to the east of the Brazilian coastline."

The GOES-8 imagery was debated by two ufologists during the broadcast: Dr. Mario Dussuel of the Comité de Estudios de Fenómenos Aéreos Anomalos (CEFAA) and Rodrigo Cuadra of the Equipo Superior de Investigación Ovnilógica (ESIO). CEFAA is Chile's national official study group, composed by government agencies and the Chilean Air Force.

Note: A video on YouTube posted by Solaris Misterios on December 12, 2016 contains a fascinating interview with an Ecuadoran pilot, which we transcribe below:

Testimony of Ecuadoran Flight Engineer Ing. Carlos Naranjo Burbano



"We had an experience when we were on our way back from Santiago de Chile on a routine flight, Santiago de Chile to Guayaquil, with general Duran, and at the time the pilot was Captain Fosso. For more or less 15 minutes we were accompanied by an object we were unable to identify as to whether or not it was extraterrestrial. At a distance of 150 kilometers from land, as we were flying over the sea, we could see below us what looked like a city. A satellite city, if you will. A section where everything was normal, but this was under the sea. We were traveling at an altitude of some 33,000 feet, and it was clearly visible, a city, right there. We were able to see buildings in the dark, in the early hours of the morning. Yes, we saw lights, under the sea, bright lights indicating the presence of a city down there. It was definitely under the sea, since we were 150 miles offshore."

Chile: A UFO Over Temuco - First One This Year

The year has only just started and the first reports of unidentified flying objects are surfacing, this time in a region of Chile.

The video was uploaded by user Agustín Lepe and shows some strange lights that appear and disappear in the night sky.

Witnesses to the event repeatedly state that it could be some kind of drone, although they are quite excited at what they are seeing.

The YouTube user remarked that the witness's name is Matías Hernández, who managed to capture this stunning UFO visual during the early hours of January 1, 2018 in Temuco, Chile.

[Partial transcription of voices on video]

Man 1: Come over, come over, come over! Look daddy, look!
Man 2: Look, look at this, Ricardo
Woman 1:
Man 3: Ah, that's a drone
Man 4: Yeah, that's a drone
Man 1: No, no, it has two lights - look, see how it moves
Man 3: Are you recording this? At that altitude..
Man 2: See how it grows brighter...it's so bright, it can't be a drone
Man 3: In any event, it can't be a ...
