Peru: Unidentified Object Over Tacna
PERU: A UFO Reported over Tacna
Personnel at the city's airport discarded the possibility of aircraft. Meanwhile, citizens took to the streets to see for themselves.
Residents of Tacna reported seeing two Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) to RPP.
Authorities at the Carlos Cirianni International Airport of the city of Tacna dismissed the possibility that it could have been a flight at that late hour. A group of individuals took to the streets to see the event for themselves and tried to take photos of the phenomenon with cellphone cameras, as the uncertainty is ongoing. These witnesses claim that the objects are round and glowing; others stepped out to the balconies of the homes for a better look at the firmament.
Peruvian Air Force sources contacted by RPP note that there is no official report on the presence of unidentified aircraft that have entered the skies of Tacna without authorization.
The communications media pointed out that the event could have been a sighting of the planet Jupiter and its moons, as its orbit would form a nearly perfect alignment with our own planet's and with the Sun. The people of Tacna continues to expect a pronouncement from the authorities regarding the true nature of the phenomenon.
