Chile: UFOs in Quilpue and Villa Alemana

Date: August 26, 20

Chile: Local Residents Claim Seeing 10 UFOs in Quilpue and Villa Alemana over the Past Year

MARGA-MARGA.- It was 13 years ago that the life of Dario Fajardo Gonzalez took a turn. It was a night in 1987 when this psychologist witnessed an enormous, multicolored sphere, and nothing was ever the same again.

It was seen by many people and the episode is remembered to this very day, but the phenomenon stirred in him a great curiosity for the subject of unidentified flying objects (UFOs).Fajardo, who is also a systems analyst, stated that Quilpue and Villa Alemana are “transition areas”, which means they are territories with a greater share of sightings, although not quite as frequent as Limache and Olmue, which are the most “visited” areas.In spite of this difference, the difference in sightings between the “city of the sun” and the "city of windmills" is significant, with a ratio of ten to one in favor of the latter.

It was in 2009 that Villa Alemana reported ten spheres crossing the local skies, and for which no scientific explanation was ever found. He said there were reports which, like this one, were also investigated, but it was ascertained that these were logical cases that turned out to be aerostat balloons or atmospheric phenomena.

Furthermore, the expert detailed that many of the sightings in Quilpue are the same that have been recorded in Valparaiso, due to their greater proximity to the coastline.However, the ufologist stated that both communes have a greater propensity toward having UFO sightings due to their proximity to the La Campana mountain, which is one of the most enigmatic locations involving the UFO phenomenon. It is believed that the site contains “portals” through which these flying objects may enter and depart.

However, the expert theorized that the sightings must be more numerous than those which have actually become known, since many times people either don’t notice (because they don’t tend to look skyward) or lack equipment with which to record them.

A Strange Coincidence

Despite the fact that very few cases have been made known in both communes, Dario Fajardo states that a considerable increase in sightings has occurred lately.“Although they’ve always been there, more cases have occurred since 2006 in the Quilpue and Villa Alemana cluster.

The most seen objects are “foo fighters”, which aren’t large, and which would be sent out for research purposes,” explained the expert, who hosts the Ovnis: El futuro en el presente radio show on Radio La Calera on Thursdays at 23:00 hours (available at, when it came to discussing the latest sightings in both communes, he gets a shiver, as he says that three UFOs were seen over the area on the day of the February 27th (2010) earthquake.

“According to information gathered in Villa Alemana, one was seen the day before the earthquake and another two the following day. This is rather strange. While this area was not the epicenter, perhaps the movement of tectonic plates may draw their attention,” suggests the expert.
