Chile: An Alleged UFO Over Coquimbo

A resident of Chile's 4th Region shared a strange video showing a luminous object over the bay. What did ufologists say about it?

A resident of the region of Coquimbo, Chile shared an odd video showing a supposed UFO high over the bay near the "Cross of the Third Millennium". The viralization of the image prompted a debate about the recordings authenticity online.

The visitation of what the author refers to as a "foo fighter" (orbs with a metallic appearance or balls of light) even reached the morning shows on trans-Andean television, where experts in ufology debated the supposedly alien phenomenon.

Despite the fact that many believe in the image, many also claim it is a simple trick of light with a luminous artifact, closer to Earth than one might think.

"We cannot say that everything we see is a spacecraft or that it contains occupants. We see many strange things, but 99% have an explanation - a satellite, meteorological phenomena or human artifacts," said Marco Antonio Gómez, 58, of Marcc UFO.

The Chilean researcher told the press that one must remain calm when in the presence of an unidentified object and keep recording to the very end. "This is because [the Internet] is full of videos that cut halfway and in the end one does not know what happened - whether it turned off, lit up, exploded or went off to another universe."
