the 21st June a ranch owner and his wife who lived near a little
town of Mininco about 900 kilometres south south west of Santiago
reported to the air attaché three instances of having seen
During the last week of February a round red and yellow object descended
in the vicinity of their farm, hovered for a few minutes and then
disappeared in the sky on the 8th July at 23.40 hours a flying saucer
was seen by an estimated 150 people in Colonia the object was reported
to be at 20 to 25 degrees from the horizon and about 3 miles out
from the shore.
visibly rotated changed colours rapidly from white to yellow to
orange to green to violet. It remained in sight for about 15 minutes,
hovering in one place and then took off to the south east at a rapid
velocity. Then on 17th July several people in Colonia Uruguay observed
the landing of a flying saucer on a beach.
The report stated that the strange object remained on the beach
for close to 2 minutes and then continued silently on a vertical
flight towards the river de la Plata where it remained suspended
in space for several minutes at an altitude of 10 metres, later
continuing in horizontal flight for 500 metres.
The people who viewed the object stated no troops were observed
that it left a x mark on the beach similar to a retractable mechanical
foot and that it was reddish in colour and difficult to look at
due to its luminosity.
A little later strange object was sighted over Buenos Aires. On
the 19th July in the province of Tarapace and Antofagasta Chile
a strange object was observed flying at a high speed ejecting explosions
of great force and very loud. The object was first sighted at 1555
and was described to be in the form of a cone with a point to the
rear. 6 labourers at the Maria Elena nitrate observed it mine.
On the 20th near Santiago at 0440 in the morning an occupant of
a hotel at Chafiaral was awakened by a loud noise. He looked out
of the window and saw an intense red object that had an approximate
diameter of 10-12 metres land on the sand in the vicinity of the
hotel and 4 5 minutes later it departed accompanied by a loud
The sightings by the base personnel were very credible, not a mass
psychosis of the events, the objects were seen from various positions.
sightings in the Arctic and the Cascade Mountains were under the
right conditions for these electric phenomena to appear extreme
cold. They both had equipment that were effected by the discs but
then if they were electrical phenomena then this would cause this
effect. Just because at the time you cannot explain away the sighting.
If you then add up the total of sightings in 1949 the CIA had a
total of 256 reports that were deemed worthy of further study.
43 % sphere or elliptical (including balls of fire)
6 % cylinder
32.2% undetermined or other.
Add further to this a Russian broadcast in 1951 slated by the USA
.The Russian broadcast stated that the U.S. knew all along the harmless
nature of these objects and there aim was to fan war hysteria, American
propaganda to promote a threat from Eastern countries.
If at the time you cannot explain away the sighting. Why tag the
sighting, as extra terrestrial it adds nothing to the world of ufology
just ridicule not every sighting has to be ET.
Why does anyone connected to UFOs or aliens theory, have to
portray events so one sided.
I like to explore every plausible avenue, sometimes I do think that
alien visitation is a possibility but that does not mean its
Ufology faces as big a problem as it did from the start. There is
and has never been any physical evidence of space ships crashed
or from any other fly by.
How many times do we have to hear of reports of strange lights in
the sky, with the end result of that is all they are hundreds and
thousands of reports filed away with no explanation what so ever?
This puzzling conundrum will go on forever. There has been hardly
any forward momentum in this field. Unfortunately it looks like
theyre never will be.
Thats why I have written in this article what I believe to
be the missing 2% of the 5%. From investigating UFOs it could
have been so easy for me to state that yes these were aliens. That
to me is a cop out - these scientists proved what they were. It
was not alien visitation.
Now there is a plausible explanation for 97% of all sightings is
it not about time to concentrate on the remaining 3% and if that
involves the ruling out of ET then so it has to be.
SO THERE YOU HAVE DISCS THAT ARE ELECTRICAL PHENOMENA NOT ET, DISCS
THAT EXPLODE AND LEAVE NO TRACE NO METAL FRAGMENTS JUST ELECTRIC
END OF STORY.
