- Investigation conducted by Calama UFO Center on October
18, 2001, 02:30 A.M.
- As a result of our investigations in the southern sector
of the city of Calama, Chile, we have contacted a lone watchman that has
been guarding a construction site for 6 months. His job consists of safekeeping
a building under construction, as well as building materials and equipment.
- This gentleman of 51 years of age, father of 8 children
and native of this city, described an event involving a possible UFO, alien
entities and paranormal activity on the night of October 14, 2001.
- CONTACTEE'S TESTIMONY
- "Ever since I started working here, I have noticed
strange sounds at night. Some of my co-workers have mentioned hearing them
as well. It is almost normal to hear them. The sounds are similar to hearing
children running and playing around. They usually come from outside where
the stockpiles of wood and construction equipment are, as if they were
playing around with the equipment. However, the possibility of children
playing outside at 4:AM in the morning is at the least highly unlikely.
- Nevertheless, our job is to watch and safeguard the property;
therefore, we are required to go out and check for anything out of the
ordinary. I am absolutely positive that I was alone. My only companion
is an old TV set and a pregnant stray dog that I feed and have learned
to love as my own pet. Soon, she will have puppies.
- Although I am used to hear strange noises, that night
on October 14 something weird happened to me. It was about 2 in the morning.
I was watching TV. Suddenly, my dog started barking and ran towards the
back patio, so I lowered the volume to listen to what was going on. I was
expecting that someone would be running around on top of the piles of lumber,
but this time the noise was stronger, so I immediately reacted thinking
that somebody could have been trying to steal the material. I picked up
my flashlight and ran towards the door.
- As expected, the dog was ready to go outside as she was
barking and waiting for me to open the door. She ran as soon as I opened
the door, but suddenly, she bounced right back after she only ran a few
feet away. Apparently, something scared her. She looked and sounded terrified.
I have never seen her moaning and shivering the way she did that time.
Then I saw it. I saw a bright oval shaped object floating around near the
55-gallon drums. The object was about 35 feet away from me.
- I really do not know what happen to me, I was simply
paralyzed. I had my flashlight in my hand, but I was not able raise it
to illuminate this object. It was like a mental blackout. The only thing
that I had in mind was the intense cold and fear that I felt. The only
parts of my body that I was able to move were my eyes, as they followed
the strange object for about 10 seconds.
- The object moved at about 15 MPH. It was not a living
being. It was some kind of small airship. It did not emit air, noise, nor
it left a contrail. The sensation felt in my body during the moments that
I saw it is simply indescribable.
- The following day, I heard the noises once again. I was
too scared to go outside. However, I went upstairs but I did not see anything
from the second floor. Later during the week, it happened again, but this
time I called another guard. We both went outside but, once again, we could
not see anything.
- A lot of strange things happen at night down here. Sometimes,
the lights turn on and off by themselves, the same with the air compressors,
winches and even motor vehicles. Some security guards have mentioned strange
looking men dressed in gray roaming around the site. They mention that
they are very elusive. When they try to stop them for questioning or to
provide assistance to them - because they appear to be looking for something
- they walk or run away and disappear."
