Argentina: UFO Videotaped North of Santiago del Estero

A sudden flare crossed the skies of the provincial capital and was videotaped by residents of the Aeropuerto District. Countless theories have been put forth about the nature of the unidentified flying object.

The video was taken last Thursday (03 Mar 11) at 19:44 hours by Oscar Covi, who was startled by the flare while playing with his family in Barrio Aeropuerto to the north of Santiago del Estero.

The images were captured by the camera of a 2 megapixel cell phone and the object can be seen traveling on a trajectory parallel to the surface. According to the videographer "the flare was heading west of the city at high speed."

There is no solid information regarding the source of the sighting. Among the hypotheses put forth by witnesses are the possibility of space junk, a meterorite entering the atmosphere, the exhaust of a rocket or even that of an alien spacecraft.

Watch the video and leave your comments as to what was the true nature of the object flying over the skies of Santiago.
