CEFAA, the Chilean government department that investigates UFOs, has been leading an investigation into a mysterious unidentified aerial phenomenon that was witnessed by the Chilean Navy two years ago.
In the first week of January this year they released video footage to the public, and have admitted that their committee, which contains academics, technicians and other military experts, have literally no idea how to explain what was seen.
The Director of CEFAA concedes that whilst they don’t know what it was that was witnessed and recorded on film, they have an extremely long list of things that the flying object was most certainly not.
The Navy helicopter that captured the footage on November 11, 2014 contained a Navy Captain and Navy technician who were testing a “Forward Looking Infra Red camera (FLIR)” during their routine daylight hours’ patrol along the coast, to the west of Santiago.
Their helicopter was traveling at just under 250km per hour, it was a clear day and the air temperature was at around 10c. The cloud cover was at about an altitude of around 3kms, and they were flying at an altitude of 1400m.
At exactly 1:52pm, soaring over the ocean on their left hand side, was a strange object that was flying at around the same altitude as their helicopter. The Captain and the technician both witnessed that it was around 60kms away and traveling W/NW. Immediately they zoomed into the the object with the camera device they were testing, hoping that the infra-red would give more information to indicate what exactly they were seeing.
Unable to identify the aircraft, they radioed two separate radar stations to see if they could detect the object, and whilst the stations easily picked up the navy helicopter on their radars, the mysterious aircraft did not show up.
Air traffic controllers at the radar stations confirmed that there had been no authorized aircraft, military or civilian, permitted to fly within the controlled airspace that this object was flying through.
The helicopter’s own radar system also was not detecting the strange aircraft either, and the pilot could not make contact with it despite trying to utilize every bandwidth on his multi-national radio. The infra-red camera also was not able to lock into the image with it’s radar. But the technician persisted and aimed the camera at the object for nine minutes and twelve seconds – until it disappeared behind clouds.
Upon returning to base the footage was immediately passed over to General Bermudez and Mario Avila, a nuclear chemist on the CEFAA scientific committee. The Officer and the technician were interviewed and Avila remarked that he felt they were both highly trustworthy and professional, and believed them thoroughly when they insisted that they could not explain what they saw.
The Captain had described the UFO as being a structure that was flat and elongated, discharging thermal light. The technician’s report stated that it had a horizontal axis, was white and its shape was semi-oval. The footage showed it emitting some kind of liquid or gas that would have likely been at an extremely hot temperature.
Skeptics have tried to downplay the footage by claiming that it must have simply been an aircraft coming in for landing at the nearby Santiago airport, but what the skeptics fail to understand is that all of these considerations were already contentiously considered over the two years before the footage was released.
One of the primary proofs that it was not an aircraft coming in to land was the discharge of liquid or gas – in other words, if this had been a regular aircraft, it would have crashed. Additionally, all aircrafts must ask permission before ejecting anything over any official airspace.
So this time, the skeptics cannot explain what was seen in the footage away with any conventional reasoning. It has been proven by meteorologists that there were no weather balloons being used at that time, and that such balloons do not act in the way that the footage depicts.
It was also proven that it was impossible for it to have been a drone. And it could not have been space junk as it was moving horizontally, not falling vertically. Photo Analysts with the Air Force have confirmed that the video was not altered in any way which rules out that it was hoax footage.
Without any evidence to suggest otherwise, it truly appears to be that this strange and unexplained flying object in the sky, was indeed a true UFO.
