COSTA RICA: Amateur Video Captures Alleged UFO
by Luis Diego Quirós
Scientist neither confirm nor deny that the images appearing in an amateur video are those of an extraterrestrial spacecraft.
As he does on a daily basis, Angel Brenes leaves his home for his job at the Tres Rios Electric Substation. But this June 24th would be different -- that evening he ws able to record a video of the two tallest electric towers, using his cellphone.
Although Angel says that the light moved in a way that he cannot explain, he did feel that it was an unidentified flying saucer (UFO).
However, Oscar Sierra, an expert in the UFO subject, believes that the video needs further study, although it presents characteristics that would make it real.
Jose Alberto Villalobos, a physicist, has a different opinion. He believes that it is a UFO because it is unidentified, but he cannot say that it is an extraterrestrial craft.
The amateur video is similar to a photo taken in France several years ago. In a similar fashion, an artisan from Aguas Zarcas managed to record one in 2006 over the Arenal Volcano.
Despite the fact that there is no officially acknowledged proof, UFO experts believe that hundreds of extraterrestrials visit our world every day.
