Chile: Did UFOs Cause A Blackout In Northern Chile?

Two objects traveling at high speed interrupted the electric
supply in the city of Copiap=F3 and the commune of Caldera.

Word is circulating in various sectors of the city of Copiap=F3
and the commune of Caldera that the blackout that plunged them
into darkness on Wednesday between 20: 00 and 21:15 hours could
have been "caused by the sudden transit of two UFOs"
(unidentified flying objects).

The situation has gained a certain measure of "credibility" when
it considering that the blackout would have been caused by a
malfunction at the 110,000 volt transmission facilities, which
has been neither confirmed nor denied by the Atacama Power
Utility (Empresa Electrica de Atacama), which has limited itself
to saying "the problem is under investigation."

Local resident Gonzalo Delgado, who flatly refused to be
photographed "since they'd think I was a nut", told the El
Cha=F1arcillo newspaper that "around 8 p.m. on Wednesday I was in
the Cuesta de Cardone sector, hitchhiking my way back into the
city. I suddenly realized that two objects crossed the sky at
high speed and when I turned around to look at the city, I
realized that it had vanished. That leads me to believe that it
was at the time that the power failure occurred. Two trucks were
also coming down the road at the same time, whose drivers could
have also seen the phenomenon."

He stresses that he thought long and hard about reporting what
he had seen, since he feared being dismissed as a lunatic,
"which I think would be unfair, since I did see the two luminous
objects." The worker stressed that he could not "ascertain that
the transit of those objects was responsible for the power
failure, but if EMELAT is still investigating, what else could
one think?"

No official version of the case has been produced to this day,
leaving the possibility of two UFOs being responsible for said
blackout a complete mystery.
