Secrets of the Friendship
Gustavo Rodríguez, who subsequently became assistant director of the air traffic department of the Dirección de Aeronáutica [Chile's equivalent of the FAA---Ed.] was at the home of one of his siblings celebrating a nephew's birthday when he witnessed the event: "It was a light having the apparent size of an orange and which gave the impression of spinning on its axis.It was hanging in space and exhibited little or no movement."In the measure that the sun went down, Rodríguez noticed the presence of a darker sphere.The second object was opaque and appeared to follow the same trajectory as the first, heading toward the mountains.In fact, the phenomenon was witnessed in Argentina, as shown by newspaper clippings of the time.Were those objects UFO's?Agents of the Weather Bureau, who confessed having seen the mystery object, noted that no rational explanation could be ascribed to the phenomenon--at least not from the perspective of their profession."The radar return," explains Rodríguez, "is fair to poor, and only the raw primary signal can be seen."At 16:00 LMT, a number of flights make contact with the object.On the one hand, a Boeing 727 coming in from the north, and on the other, Ladeco Flight 061 and the CC-LHL flying between Limache to Tobalaba.According to eyewitness accounts, the UFOs were at a considerable altitude and were moving very slowly in an eastward direction, remaining visible until 19:30 hours.Might they have been balloons?Despite the fact that some newspapers latched on to the weather balloon explanation, such a device is unable to remain static in the same location for five hours.
