UFOs Inaugurate Chilean Festivities in San Pedro

Last Friday's festivities in the Chilean town of San Pedro de
Atacama began with the strange appearance of at least 3 UFOs.
According to different testimonies given by residents of the
town, strange lights appeared in the clear Atacama skies during
early hours on Saturday.

The residents described the objects as bright lights making
strange movements, which according to them, were not typical of
normal airplanes. Local San Pedro residents who witnessed the
phenomenon could only describe them as UFOs.

Local authorities claim that they did not receive any reports
about the strange phenomenon. They also stated that these
sightings are very common in the area, so this may have not been
as relevant as previous accounts.

Bright UFO Illuminates Chilean Capitol Source: Tele 13, Chile

In light of recent declarations by high-ranking Chilean military
officers regarding the existence of ufos in Chile, another
luminous object was seen in the Chilean capitol of Santiago by
dozens of spectators. Tele 13 Journalist Rodrigo Ugarte covered
the breaking news when the strange object illuminated the clear
skies above the rouged mountains in the outskirts of the capitol

Last Saturday, at approximately 10:00 PM, Eric Martinez received
a call about a strange object near the mountains of the suburban
area of Florida, near Santiago. The light was very bright and
changed colors very rapidly. The object disappeared and
reappeared numerous times in the same area. The spectacular
sighting lasted approximately an hour.

Amazingly, Eric Martinez, who is an investigator from the GEO
UFO Research Center, captured video images of a similar object
earlier during the afternoon. Martinez believes it was the same
object. "This object was about four times brighter than Venus",
said Martinez. "Furthermore, the object seemed to make sudden
and rapid vertical movements". Local residents corroborated with
Martinez's claim. According to them, they saw an object as big
as a full moon. Moments later, the object suddenly appeared to
shrink in size.

Security guards at a nearby construction site said they saw
small blue spheres or probes flying very close to the ground. "I
know the sphere that I saw was no star because it had a bright
blue color and it was about 50 centimeters from the ground",
said one of the guards. They claim that these phenomena occur
very frequently in the area.

Chilean villagers describe an alleged capture of a Chupacabras

Chilean law enforcement agencies have conducted an apparent
successful operation to capture the legendary chupacabras
creature in the small village of Huasco, Third Region of Chile.

Due to the constant animal deaths in the area, the community of
Huasco had been very worried. Recent attacks on domestic animals
have created panic and fear among local residents. Numerous
reports of these attacks have prompted Customs officers of the
area to conduct special operations in an effort to capture the
so-called chupacabras. The purpose of the operation was to avoid
new animal slaughters.

According to several eyewitnesses, police and customs officers
were seen conducting searches and chasing an animal that was
finally captured in a cave. "Local residents heard gunshots
during the intense pursuit in the nearby village of O'Higgins",
said Darwin Godoy, a local ufo and "chupacabras" investigator.

Finally, the group of officers finished their search in a local
cave, where they captured what appeared to be a strange giant
bat. "According to descriptions, the creature was about 80
centimeters in height and it had a wingspan of approximately 1.7
meters", said Godoy.

The cave where the alleged capture took place is located near
the thermoelectric power plant of Guacolda, just south of
Huasco. Several of the eyewitnesses were employees of the
electric power plant. Residents that live nearby the local
cemetery also witnessed the operative.
