Chile: Alleged UFO Plunges Into Sea by San Antonio
A large number of residents of San Antonio and the Central Littoral were surprised and frightened by the alleged UFO (Unidentified Flying Object) that plunged into the bay.
Area residents who claim having witnessed the strange event, contacted that city's Port Authority by phone. Elements of that agency reported to the site without finding anything anomalous.
Preliminary stories suggested that the event could be due to the natural phenomenon known as "la Tromba" (the waterspout) but the Port Authority discarded that possibility.
Confirmed by Eyewitnesses
Dozens of witnesses attested to the phenomenon. They ratify that a strange object fell from the sky. "It was surprising," they said. The police combed the area but nothing at all was found in the entire area.
The phenomenon, also seen in the beaches of the Central Littoral, caused a commotion among those who beheld it: "It was incredible, out of the ordinary," emphasized a policeman who was on duty in the area and asked that his name be kept confidential.
Witnesses agreed that three large columns of smoke were initially visible, similar to the contrails of a jet aircraft, and gave the impression of a speedy North-South movement. However, they changed course by 90 degrees and fell vertically, with lights similar to flames becoming visible, after which the appeared to vanish.
