- CHILE - Mystery lights in
the sky, underground fires, tremors, and ground splits continue to appear
in Northern Chile. In the town of Baquedano, entire local and national
government buildings are being relocated, the ground is sinking in many
areas, and several ground splits are causing transportation authorities
to close two major roads. On February 26 of 2002, an earthquake was registered
in Arica, the same location where a few days earlier, many people saw bright
lights in the sky. At the same time, in Calama, local authorities are trying
to put out underground fires, and a local mining facility has collapsed
- The so-called western geological fault in Calama has
been determined to be the most probable cause for the collapse of the Chuqui
mining facility near Calama, Chile. The situation appears to be under control.
There is a major evacuation of personnel and equipment taking place. Nevertheless,
there is a great sense of fear and insecurity among mining workers.
- According to previously recorded geological events, the
mine appears to be in a highly active volcanic and seismic area. Furthermore,
it is believed that in addition to the already active volcanic area, there
seems to be some tectonic plate fracture activity as well, causing a four-meter
wide split. Additionally, the steep inclination level where the facility
is located has worsened the effects of the apparent fault.
- Coincidently, there seems to be UFO activity occurring
simultaneously with these geological phenomena. On the 18th of February
of 2002, a strange flying object was seen in the city of Calama. Two young
men reported seeing a bright oval-shaped UFO flying over buildings in the
south side of the city. "At first, we though it was an advertisement
balloon attached to a building, but it suddenly began to move. It was about
20 meters in length, and bright orange reddish colored. It began moving
from a tall building named Asturias towards the local chicken processing
plant. After about 3 minutes, it began ascending slowly, and then very
rapidly until it gained so much altitude that we lost it", said one
- On November of 2001, similar objects were seen near the
mine of Quetena. According to "Jorge", an eyewitness, workers
at a nearby cement manufacturing plant saw three of those objects flying
in formation, then, they merged into one and left the area. The sighting
lasted about four minutes. Jorge claimed that the objects changed their
inclination angle, then, they merged. After the objects merged into one,
it flew up very rapidly and disappeared.
- But Chile is not the only part of the world where these
phenomena take place. Many UFOs or "night lights" have been sighted
before or during earthquakes throughout the world. For example, in Turkey,
on January 26 of 2002, a bright light was seen before and during an entire
earthquake. In Canada, as many as 38 of these lights were seen in Quebec
during and after the earthquake of 1988. Similar events have taken place
in Alaska and in Japan.
- It has not been confirmed that the earthquake in Arica
was the cause of the Chuqui Mine collapse in Calama. Although, the earthquake
occurred several miles away, both events took place almost simultaneously.
On the 9th of February of 2002, while traveling at night, a major news
media journalist reported seeing a very bright light in Arica, where the
earthquake took place; the light was so bright that was seen by other eyewitnesses
several miles away. In addition to all of these "coincidences",
the Chilean government, as well as international organizations have begun
a "nuclear monitoring" project, as well as the construction of
radio telescopes in the area. There is something very strange going on
