Perú: UFO Witnessed on the Hottest Day in Lima

Minutes of mystery elapsed during the recording of a television show, after a group of people witnessed a flying object- in bold daylight- in the skies over Miraflores.

The images shared by YouTuber Eduardo Chavez indicate that this occurred when congressman Renzo Reggiardo was recording his "Alto al Crimen" program around 10:30 a.m.. "A strange object suspended in mid-air could be seen in the heavens," reads the video description.

The congressman interrupts his presentation - as shown in the clip - to witness the strange object that caught the attention of the production staff.

Valia Barack, journalist and director of the congressman's show, confirmed that the images were real through her Twitter account. Comments about it suggest that a drone could be involved.

This isn't the first video recording of an unidentifid object, but documents of this sort are always impressive. On February 10, 2015, user Eduardo Chavez Guerra uploaded this video to YouTube showing a strange even. He was taping a television show in a district of Lima, Perú, when a strange object appeared in the recording.

The show host, who was speaking at the time, interrupts his speech upon becoming aware of the presence of the strange saucer-shaped object.

On YouTube, where the video has already been seen by thousands, subscribers are debating the likelihood that a drone could be involved.

Argentina: The UFO Phenomenon in Salta - A Substantiated Story
El Tribuno Newsroom

We are providing you with some of the most notable historical information on the UFO phenomenon in Salta which has been manifesting itself in our region for decades, startling our inhabitants.

Northern Argentina has a long history of enigmas, a mysterious angle that constitutes an important part of local culture. In recent years, one mystery has repeated increasingly in the skies of Salta - UFO sightings. Reports repeat themselves, some surprising, other questionable, some of them including the so-called "encounters of the third kind". In cities or lonely places, jungles, rivers and dams, the UFO phenomenon has become gradually more frequent. Moreover, the massification of technologies able to record events of this sort give us the possibility of gaining access to a variety of accounts.

But these events have taken place in Salta for a long time.

Cono de Arita is an atypical formation, considered natural by many, while being unique in the world. In April 1956, a "flying cigar" flew over the mysterious cone four times in the same day. Photographs were taken, giving rise to "ufology" - the study of the phenomenon - in Argentina. Around that time, a violent explosion shook the slopes of Nevado de Macón in Tolar Grande, a peak near the Cono. In 1957, an expedition lead by physician José Cerato ascended the Macón and found - according to Cerato's statement to the press - "a series of ground traces similar to those that could be left behind by very heavy machinery, with a flat base, that had landed at the site."

On September 25, 1956, Argentinean news agencies reported a UFO sighting in Pajas Blancas, Salta. Several witnesses saw a strange egg-shaped aircraft landing. In spite of its large size, it rose lightly into the air in a spiral motion. On June 27, 1962, residents of Salta saw an enormous "shining plate" that hung over the capital city of several minutes, dropping a substance which a witness described to El Tribuno as a "fine ashen powder."

On July 12, 1968, Elisa Medina of Salta, heard a noise coming from the sky. She then saw a powerful beam of light illuminating the surroundings. She began to scream, but felt paralyzed by an unknown force that left her "glued to the ground".

In May 1978, A UFO crashed near the Baritú National Park. The Gendarmerie found strange metallic remnants near Santa Victoria Oeste. On May 6, 178, a cylindrical object with a flaming wake was seen by thousands of people before crashing into the mountain of El Taire in Bolivia. It left a 300 meter deep mark on the ground, 500 meters wide and 1.5 kilometers long.

Chile: UFOs Over the Atacama Region

Chile: UFOs Over the Atacama Region
By Carlos Opazo - Red Atacama

Province of Huasco, Atacama Region - In the Commune of Alto del Carmen, the skies are known as being among the most pristine in all Chile. Constellations, stars, satellites and anything crossing the zenith of this cordilleran sector can be seen by the unaided eye at night.

But for some time now, stars and constellations are not the only things visible in the skies of the Valle de Huasco. Strange flying objects have been seen as well, drawing the viewer's attention and causing a bit of fear.

Some stories indicate that a long time ago, locals and residents of Alto del Carmen witnessed a large luminous ball falling out toward the valley, and which caused the same expectation, fear and astonishment as the event that occurred last year in the same community. According to witnesses of the phenomenon, a powerful beam of light crossed the commune and crashed into the cordillera, followed by a strong subterranean tremor. That's not all. There are those who claim having seen extraterrestrial beings in the area, although there is no evidence of this. Likewise, such sectors as Crucecita, Pinte and Chollay report the presence of strange objects over the valley's skies. Julio Inostroza, former radio controller of the commune, notes: "There are many locals who claim having seen flying objects over the commune, but this isn't the first time."

Inostroza follows the UFO subject. He claims to be a contactee whose mission it is to spread the awareness of the existence of these entities. His experience is considerable and he has photographic and audiovisual documentation on sightings.

Another witness to these events, who did not want to disclose his identity, stated that he'd seen strange phenomena over the valley on two occasions. "Once, I was walking in the dark toward my home in a not very well-lit sector of the valley. I realized that there were three lights forming a triangle in the sky, moving little by little in the sky in parallel." He says that he was not frightened at first by the event, but when the lights vanished quickly, he started walking somewhat more briskly to reach his home. The same witness notes that a friend of his from the locality of Mitencillo, 50 kilometers toward the coast, witnessed the same spectacle at the same time in the northern night.

A former municipal official of Alto del Carmen admits having witnessed a phenomenon two years ago, having to do with the light the crossed Valle del Carmen toward the Andean Range, and which caused such fear among locals. "I had the same experience 40 years ago. I was in the interior of the valley when I heard a very loud noise, made by something falling. I didn't see it - I only heard the loud noise, since I was inside a home. The people outside told me that a very bright light had crossed the valley toward the cordillera. The mayor at the time sent a team of municipal workers to scour every corner of the valley, along with Carabineros (state police), and they could find nothing at all.

A few years ago, Vallenar and Alto del Carmen held a UFO convention where distinguished researchers visited the commune to discuss the matter of sightings. Various theories, studies and investigative approaches were put forth at the event, making the UFO phenomenon better known in Chile, but questions still remain: Are we alone? Are we the only living creatures in the galaxy? Are we visited by strange beings? Are we alone in the Huasco?

The answers can be found in each our personal experiences. Seeing is believing.

Mexico: A UFO Recorded at Colima's Volcan de Fuego?
Newsroom -

Wed 28 JAN 2015 18:32 - A photo taken by the Webcams de Mexico website shows an unidentified flying object around Colima's Volcan de Fuego during an emanation recorded this morning.

MEXICO CITY - The activity of Colima's Volcan de Fuego, recorded over recent weeks, featured an unusual element this morning.

The Webcams de Mexico site captured the moment in which an unidentified flying object (UFO) circles the area, which has for days exhibited emanations and explosions of incandescent material and volcanic ash falls.

The image was disseminated this morning and the size of the object is not fully apparent. However, its shape presents a slender upper section, a more protuberant midsection and two extremities in its lower end.

Intense activity at the volcano is ongoing, and is being monitored by the Protección Civil national office. A video was also published yesterday of the phenomenon known as a "golden explosion" in the colossal volcano's crater.

Argentina: Strange Light Alarms Residents of Frias (Santiago del Estero)

A strange phenomenon was seen yesterday afternoon and recorded by several residents of the city of Frias in the department of Choya.

A strange light could be seen making maneuvers in the heavens. This went on until the "point" of light disappeared.

Residents recorded this phenomenon with their cellphone cameras and sent the information to the Noticias de Nuevo Diario Whatsapp Feed (385-523-3425).

"What we saw was similar to a meteorite," some readers told us through social media.

Others pointed out: "All of us were startled in our home. We could see something like a dot that emitted light in the sky and moved to and fro."

Throughout yesterday afternoon, the phenomenon was the most discussed matter in the "City of Friendship". Everyone was astonished. To some it was their first experience with a phenomenon of these characteristics, while others said "it wasn't the first time something like this has happened. We witnessed something similar last year."

Argentina's Gualeguaychú UFO: An IFO?
Date: 01.22.2015

Argentina's Gualeguaychú UFO an IFO?

In recent weeks, videos of a "UFO" recorded over Gualeguaychú have been broadcast over the local and national media, showing a celestial object that has attracted the attention of locals. Phenomena of this sort occur on a daily basis and through this article submitted to AIM, specialists of the Asociacion Entrerriana Astronomica de Entre Rios (Entre Rios Astronomical Association - AEA) have tried to explain certain characteristics to enable identification.
For over 60 years, humankind has had a presence in space through its machines, highly technical devices that go around the Earth time and again in all manner of orbits. Some of these objects, due to their orbital characteristics, altitude, eccentricity, etc. are visible at certain moments of the day. They do not generate their own light, but rather, reflect the light of the sun. The most famous of these are the International Space Station and the Iridium satellites.

The ISS (International Space Station) is an object measuring over 100 meters long that orbits our planet at 27,600 kilometers an hour at an altitude of 431 kilometers. It has roughly the same size as a soccer pitch. It orbits our planet since 1988 and has a permanent population of 6 astronauts that rotates every six months, approximately. This monumental object is visible to the unaided eye shortly after sunset (for a few hours) or shortly before sunrise (for a few hours). Being a large object, it reflects the sun in the summertime, it is very bright, and given its speed and continuous light (it does not blink like aircraft), it is often cataloged as a UFO.

Video enthusiasts often show it with color variations, ranging from red to blue and passing through yellow. This is due to the optical properties of cameras, particularly cell phones. Furthermore, when photos are taken, improvised means are used to steady the photo device, using hands, and with the consequent motion. To illustrate this, we provide a video taken by a member of the AEA and involving an ISS sighting.

As for Iridium satellites, the situation is even more striking. In many opportunities, these satellites seem to appear and disappear "in an instant". This is known as a flare. If it is recorded, you will see a light that appears and disappears, provide that the satellite's path isn't fully visible. In this case, the satellite's entire trajectory will be visible, with an increase of brightness, followed by a dimming or disappearance.
Iridium communication satellites have an unusual shape, with three highly polished antenna with 120 degrees of separation between them. Every so often,
one of these antennas reflects sunlight directly back to Earth, creating a bright "fake star" for a few seconds.

The phenomenon has an approximate magnitude of -8 (rarely reaching -9.5). Some flares are so bright they can even be seen by daylight, but are more impressive at night. These light flashes can sometimes be a nuisance to astronomers, as they disturb observations and can even damage sensitive equipment.
The night of the Gualeguaychú UFO (unidentified flying object, not to be confused with "alien spaceship") was a very active one in the skies over Entre Rios. Within a span of 3 hours, from 21:00, it was possible to see the ISS, two visible transits of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and two Iridium satellite flashes. One of them, Iridium satellite 75, was particularly flashy, as it executed its entire trajectory with a -3.9 magnitude and with a -6.2 magnitude flare. Both magnitudes are very bright and stand out in the sky. As if this wasn't enough, the satellite appeared to "vanish" in an instant, due to the fact that the sun ceased to light it (none of these objects is self-luminous). Was the object seen over Gualeguaychú one of these? Maybe, although confirmation would require other information that would make this hypothesis a certainty.
