- A video from Chile shows a UFO flying in the atmosphere and releasing a liquid
- The navy footage was handed over to Chilean government experts for analysis
- However after two years of investigations scientists have no clue what it was
- Helicopter pilots tracked it with their cameras but it wouldn’t show on radar
A mind boggling video from the Chilean navy showing a UFO making unusual movements and omitting plumes of an unknown substance has been released causing swathes of speculation.
CEFAA, the Chilean government agency which investigates UFOs, have been studying the footage for two years but have failed to identify the object seen in the country’s airspace.
A naval helicopter gathered the footage on a routine daylight coastal patrol in November 2014 when the camera operator noticed a flying object ahead.
The Chilean navy helicopter tracks the UFO which was an estimated 35-40 miles away
The technician aimed the camera at it immediately and zoomed in with the infra red (IR) for better clarity.
The pilots tracked the UAP (Unidentified aerial phenomena) from around 35 to 40 miles away and tried several times to communicate with it but received no response.
They then reported the unknown traffic to two radar stations either side of the UFO but neither could detect it on radar despite the object being well in range of both.
However the stations were able to detect by the navy helicopters.
Air traffic controllers confirmed that no traffic, either civilian or military, had been reported in the area, and that no aircraft had been authorized to fly in the controlled air space where the object was located, the Huffington Post reported on Friday.
The flying object starts to omit a gas or liquid substance. The pilots tried to engage with it but received no response
Despite being able to see it the helicopter’s on-board radar was unable to detect the object
The helicopter’s on-board radar was also unable to detect the object.
The UFO, which was said to be the same size as a helicopter, omitted a long plume of gas or liquid before disappearing into the clouds.
General Ricardo Bermúdez, Director of CEFAA during the investigation, said: ‘We do not know what it was, but we do not know what it was not.’
General Bermúdez, accompanied by nuclear chemist Mario Avila, a CEFAA scientific committee member, conducted interviews with the two officers at their Navy base.
‘I was very impressed by these witnesses,’ he said.
‘They were highly trained professionals with many years experience, and they were absolutely certain that they could not explain what they saw.’
The footage was captured on a sophisticated Surveillance & Reconnaissance (SAR) camera in broad daylight.
And despite two years of investigations the CEFAA with its committees of military experts, technicians and academics from many disciplines couldn’t explain the flying object.
