Chile releases results of official UFO study

The Chilean government has released the results of an analysis it conducted on recent UFO photographs.
The images were investigated by CEFAA (Committee for the Studies of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena) which is located within the country's Ministerial Department of Civil Aeronautics, the equivalent of America's FAA.

According to reports, four mining technicians at the Collahuasi copper mine on the Andean Plateau witnessed a strange silvery disc-shaped object slowly approaching them before hovering in the sky overhead for more than an hour.

Maintaining an altitude of around 2000ft, the object seemed to change its position a few times but kept within visual range for the duration of the encounter.

None of the technicians wished to be named or interviewed about the sighting but one of them had managed to grab a camera and take photographs. The area in which the sighting occurred is located 14,000ft above sea level and enjoys extraordinarily clear skies.

According to CEFAA the object couldn't have been a drone because of the lack of noise and because there had been no drone activity scheduled in the region at the time of the sighting.

In the end the investigators concluded that, having ruled out the alternatives, they were unable to determine what the object was and admitted that it was, in their view, a "genuine UFO".

Additional photographs can be viewed on CEFAA's website.

Yeah, just 2 photos in one hour..............and if it was constantly moving, then how come they didn't bother taking any video of the object. The fact that the witnesses don't want to be interviewed also seems suspect............I mean they already have the photos as evidence to back up their sighting, and their country's government is interested enough in the case...........so it's not like people are going to label them UFO nuts. The more you look at this case the more suspect it becomes. And I would expect the object to be more centered in the frame than it is. I suspect these were just so... [More]

That's a rather good observation. Yes, put the lamp in front of your window and you how have a free flying saucer to photograph.

Yes, put the lamp in front of your window and you how have a free flying saucer to photograph. There is some software that can detect whether a photo has been manipulated or not............... I can't believe that a government agency wouldn't have used such software ................but then again we are talking about the Chile's CEFAA an agency prediposed to believe in ET craft.........so perhaps they didn't!

There is some software that can detect whether a photo has been manipulated or not............... So you don't manipulate the photo. In this case you take a picture of light from a lamp reflecting off a window. The pictures I took of a fake glowing boomerang UFO required no manipulation at all. That's what made it so easy, and they looked way better than these blurry messes.

Yeah, but I am talking about the whole image..........not just the possible lamp reflection...........but this all all academic anyway............ If a government agency can get so excited about 2 photos of a light in the sky, and no acess to the witnessess it tells you a whole lot about the credibility of the CEFAA.

The department of tourism may have a stake in this too.

...........I mean they already have the photos as evidence to back up their sighting, Strictly speaking, no.

Yeah, but I am talking about the whole image..........not just the possible lamp reflection........... I'm also talking about the whole image. Don't manipulate it! Let your fake story form around it. For example since it took me an hour to get enough fake awesome UFO photos, my story would have been that we saw it briefly early in the evening then it went away. An hour later we were shocked when it had returned. See, the EXIF data confirms my lie and the story also explains why the later photos were better than the earlier photos.

There is a tendency for people on this forum to jump to posts of "Photoshop!" when the explanation is usually simpler. Someone takes a photograph of lights reflected in a window, lens flare from street lights, a kite in the distance, etc. and decides they've got a "UFO" so invent a story to backup the photograph. The photograph probably wasn't taken with the intention to deceive, they just uploaded it to their computer thought it looked sufficiently UFO-ish and spotted an opportunity to spin... [More]

And inevitably the actual original photo that came off the camera is nowhere to be... [More]
