- Cameras at the Puente Alto Lider supermarket captured
the strange apparition.
- When security guard Victor Montero did his rounds on
May 27 at the Lider supermarket of the communed of Puente Alto, something
made him lose his calm. It wasn't an emergency or a robbery, but the sighting
of a strange luminous object which sped toward him and then moved away,
only to remain static. in sky.
- Seized by fear, Montero ran toward the office where the
rest of the guards were stationed to warn them about the unusual apparition.
It was then when his colleague Lorena Castro decided to shift the positions
of the store's safety cameras, located on the corners of the roof, to record
what was going on in the heavens.
- "Without thinking if it was allowed or not, I decided
to record the object with the supermarket's security cameras. I used the
city's lights as a point of refernece to show its altitude and the object
sometimes jumps out of the recording, since it was very fast and moved
suddenly," stated a still shocked Lorena.
- "The first time we saw it was about five o'clock
in the morning. It was round and had red and green lights, remaining like
a fixed point [in the sky] and then moving swiftly toward the sides or
up and down," noted the worker.
- The store's chief of security, Julio Gatica, was startled
by the images recorded, which prompted him to bring his portable camera
and come to wor around six o'clock in the morning to see the phenomenon
with his own eyes.
- "It changed position and spectacularly so. First
it looked like a single sphere, the a black circle appears in its middle,
and then it hangs like a jellyfish in the air, " reported Gatica,.who
also said tha the object has appeared on a daily basis and remains in the
sky for hours, even after daybreak. "Even the executives who opened
the supermarket got a chance to see it."
- The employees have gotten used to this strange visitor,
since they haven't even bothered to tape it again. However, aside from
the impression it caused on the first day, it also caused an accident two
days later. "A security guard almost killed himself because of that
object. He was working when the luminous sphere headed for him at full
speed. When the man stepped back, thinking the object was about to pounce
on him, he fell, " related the security chief.
- Julio Gatica is certain that the UFO visiting the sector
is a flying saucer. For this reason, based on the five tapes which have
already been recorded, he made a complete follow up, carefully noting the
exact times in which the object engages in its rapid motions and collecting
eyewitness testimony. ___
