A considerable number of locals witnessed one of the most significant sightings of recent times over the capital city of the province of LimarÌ, This event is a successor to the well-known and enigmatic case that occurred in 1998 over Las Mollacas in Paihuano.
OVALLE - On Saturday, June 19, hundreds of people took to the streets of Ovalle to witness--in shock and expectation--a strange circle of lights positioned in the skies over the city.
The characteristics suggested the circle was at least 100 meters in diameter; it blinked and rotated uninterruptedly in the night sky.
Likewise, certain locations on the city's outskirts attracted large numbers of people who reported seeing the same thing. Radio station telephone switchboards did not stop receiving calls, creating a sense of alarm, even among those who had not left their homes.
"We received so many calls that we had to interrupt our regular programming and present a special on the subject, in order to offer an explanation about the phenomenon and provide answers to our listeners," said Carlos Ossandun, director of the Comunicativa FM radio station.
Comunicativa obtained its highest number of listeners in recent months on that evening. However, there are also witnesses who claim having seen strange lights on preceding days, which would suggest a small UFO wave in the skies over Ovalle.
Chile's 4th Region has been prolific when it comes to sightings of this kind. In November 1967, several fishermen witnessed a UFO engulfed in flames crashing into the sea off PeÒuelas.More recently, another unidentified flying object collided against a hill in Paihuano before the startled gaze of several witnesses.
