Peru: Alleged UFOs Photographed in Chachapoyas

Local blogger displayed images taken in that city's skies. The unusual event is not the first of its kind in the region.

Town residents and tourists alike gathered to witness the celebration of the Raymillacta in the city of Chachapoyas and realized they were not alone. Two visitors in the sky went unnoticed, or so they thought.

While video cameras, digital cameras and cell phones moved throughout the Plaza Mayor of the city to capture the best angle of the celebration, an enthusiast recorded images of a different nature.

According to a blog kept by journalist Manuel Cabanas Lopez, Nicolas Ruiz took 8 photographs in the afternoon of June 7, 2008. Three days later, while reviewing them on his computer, his attention was drawn to one of them: it showed two glowing objects that stood out in the skies over Chachapoyas.

Upon enlarging the photo, it was possible to see the presence of two objects that did not agree with the blue heavens that afternoon. The blogger notes that these strange objects could be classified as UFOs as they cannot be identified -- this is due to the fact that the area has no air traffic whatsoever.

This would not be the first case. Approximately one month earlier, Manolo Valdez Santillan photgraphed two strange objects flying over the city. These photos were published in the "Trome" newspaper on May 30 (2008).

Asunta Huaman and hundreds escorting the Virgin in a procession witnessed three objects flying north to south.

On June 6, amid the main ceremony honoring the battle of Higos-Urco, a strange object suspended in the sky for five minutes was seen by the entire population.
