Chile: UFO Recorded in Cajón del Maipo

It happened on Saturday, November 25 in Cajón del Maipo. it was past 2 am when a group of at least ten people was in the dark on a sky watch, looking for this sort of phenomena. At least four of them were distracted, whether making coffee or sheltering from the cold inside their cars. It was in this context that Antonio Chavez, 44, a member of the Grupo de Estudios Unificados (GEU) Sky-Watcher Chile, noticed something strange: a light that didn't come from any star.

"We suddenly started seeing flashes of light on the mountain, one of which only 50 meters away, but whose summit is 100 meters away, so it wasn't so tall," the protagonist told Publimetro, adding "the hill is inaccessible, all that was about was some goats" and it wasn't likely that anyone had gone up due to the rocky nature of the terrain and hard to access.

When asked if the object recorded was a UFO, Chavez replied: "Yes, as long as no one says it was a spacecraft. In other words, it's something strange and unknown.

He adds that lights did indeed turn on and off. "It would turn up elsewhere in five minutes. It seemed strange for a flashlight."

He says this happened nearly five towns and that he tried to find out the source of the light. "I used an infrared viewer to see if there was something here. I couldn't see people, nothing. Suddenly I saw something coming out of the shrubs. I thought it was a bird or a bug. It's typical for infrared to pick up such things. But it surprised me that it was so far away."

"The flight was even and unshaken. We dismissed the possibility that it could have been a bug, as these fly in a zig-zag motion. It could still be a bird, but there's no beating of wings."

"The video shows that it flies evenly and makes a gentle curve before heading skyward. I couldn't focus on it again because I couldn't find it with my lens," he adds. For this reason, the video will be submitted to analysis to ascertain the nature of the object in question.

It should be noted GEU Sky-Watcher Chile engages in constant mass sky watch affairs. To learn more about them, please visit their Facebook page: Universo Geu Vigilo.
