Peru: Astonishment over Alleged UFOs in the Skies over Lima

LIMA ( – Eight alleged Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) appeared in the skies over Lima and caused astonishment among dozens of citizens walking along Lima’s downtown area.

According to Peru.21, three objects in the sky formed a perfect triangular formation at first.

Later, the dots began moving around and multiplying, dismissing the possibility that they could be stars or balloons.

A total of eight luminous objects ultimately formed an octagon in the sky. People walking the streets stopped to lift their heads skywards, witnessing the strange spectacle.

Thousands of city residents emerged from their dwellings, offices and workplaces in Lima’s Historic Center to witness the strange lights in the sky. It was an unusual phenomenon – a mysterious grouping of lights that could be clearly seen in the cloudless skies over Lima. The event occurred at around 2:00 p.m., just as Francis Allison offered curious explanations to a complacent Chema Salcedo.

A reader managed to record the event with a cellphone from one of the courtyards of Compuplaza, but the strange phenomenon prompted passerby from the Palace of Justice to the Plaza Mayor to stop in their tracks while they did their best to watch the four or five lights shining in the clouds. “The lights would gather and separate with unusual speed, approaching and separating effortlessly,” said one of the thousands of witnesses to the phenomenon.

UFOS? Balloons commemorating the No Violence Against Women Day? Or the high price of Christmas cake? Or perhaps the international price of gold? See the images and judge for yourself.
