Colombia: Images of Pasto UFO to be forwarded to NASA

Alberto Quijano, director of the Observatorio Astronomico de la Universidad de Narino, said that he will forward images of the unidentified object taken by his team to several NASA experts in an effort to discern its origin. In an interview with Caracol Radio, the astronomer said that object was definitively not a comet, because it did not follow a defined trajectory, and because no heavenly bodies of that type have been deteced in the area of the sky being studied.

Quijano indicated that the sequence of 400 photos taken of the UFO allowed him to ascertain its very strange behavior, as it remained practically motionless for an entire hour.

"It wasn't an airplane or a helicopter, because the telescope only permits the observation of objects that are far from the Earth's surface, and because the object had no motion for a long period of time," he explained.

The observatory's director explained that when there is talk of an unidentified flying object, reference is not always being made to the extraterrestrial presence.

The 400 sequential images were placed into an hour-long video to be sent to distinguished astronomers all over the world in order to find an explanation for this phenomenon.
