Chilean officials don't know what it is, but it's been classified as an official unidentified flying object, or UFO. The pictures so far make it look like the flying saucers of yore. Spotted by four engineers above a remote copper mine, a Chilean government agency has published a report on two photographs showing an object which it claims "can be qualified as a UFO."
The agency ruled out the possibility of any meteorological phenomena, including lenticular clouds, along with experimental aircraft, planes and weather balloons.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The Committee for the Studies of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena, part of Chile's Ministerial Department of Civil Aeronautics, studied photographs and submitted its findings in a report.
The engineers described the object as "a flattened disc of brilliant color with a diameter of 5 to 10 meters [16 to 32 feet]. It performed ascending, descending and horizontal movements in short lengths, about 600 meters above the ground."
The Commitee for the Studies of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena (CEFAA) studied the photographs of an object spotted by four engineers above a remote copper mine.
One of the mine employees reportedly took the pictures on a Kenox Samsung S860 camera after they spotted the object at the Collahuasi copper mine while working there in April of last year. A colleague at the mine sent copies of the images to the agency earlier this year.
The engineer who sent the pictures on to the government agency also passed on information provided to him by the witnesses.
Following investigations, the CEFAA ruled out the possibility of any meteorological phenomena, including lenticular clouds, along with experimental aircraft, planes, and weather balloons.

The agency also ruled out the possibility of drones in the area. "Fishing companies use drones and they make a lot of noise. This was definitely not a drone," international affairs director Jose Lay told newspaper reporters.
According to the report, the engineers described the object as a flattened disc of brilliant color with a diameter of 16 to 32 feet.
"It is an object or phenomenon of great interest, and it can be qualified as a UFO," the report concludes.
The four engineers who witnessed the incident reportedly refused to cooperate with the agency conducting the investigation. Released in the same week, the report come on the heels as the CIA revealed they were responsible for a number of "UFO" sightings in Norway in the 1950s.
The study concludes: "It is an object or phenomenon of great interest, and it can be qualified as a UFO."
Numerous lights in the sky had been reported by members of the public and pilots alike, with some suggesting they were of extraterrestrial origin.
But the CIA last week revealed it was the agency flying their secretive U-2 aircraft high in the atmosphere.
"Remember reports of unusual activity in the skies in the '50s? That was us," the CIA said in a recent tweet.
