    Chilean UFO incident

    One incident that is getting a lot of attention at the moment happened in Chile, two years ago.

    The information was released to the public by the Chilean Navy, some days ago.

    See, e.g., Leslie Kean's article on it:
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/...b014e7c72ee56b

    Here is one of the videos about the incident.


    And here is the full footage, as released by the Chilean Navy:

    High altitude Condensation Trails, or "Con Trails", are nothing new.
    But it is pretty amazing the craft doing the dispersing was visible to the naked eye/camera photos, but was "invisible to radar", both airborne and ground based.
    So either E.T./UFO, or maybe some stealthy aircraft?

    They said this is not high altitude, less then 10,000. So con trails was ruled out. Wonder how far this video will go?

    Solved?

    This looks like a plane, flying away from the camera considerably higher than the helicopter (somewhere around 15,000 to 25,000 feet), that briefly creates an aerodynamic contrail.

    The plane that seems to fit best is LA330, a two engined A320, which was reported to be climbing through 20,000 feet at that exact visual position at 14:01:39. It was actually 65 miles away, not 35-50. This explain why it was not seen on radar (the actual plane was on radar, just not where they thought it was) ...

    From Whitley Strieber who discussed this case with Leslie Kean:

    The claim that it's an airplane is false on the face of it. It did not appear on military radars, was not transponding and did not respond to communications on normal or emergency channels.

    The idea that it did not appear on radar because "it was farther away than they first judged" seems unlikely.
    If it was 80 miles away, instead of the 50 initially judged (like the skeptics claim), you would think that would put the "radar blip" another inch or two out on the ground track radar screen. Not invisible.
    Sounds like the skeptics are trying to hard.

    UFO sightings in North America jumped to nearly 6,000 in 2019

    California, Florida and Washington top the rankings for most UFO sightings.

    here was a rise in the number of North Americans who looked up into the sky in 2019 and found something that didn’t look like a bird or a plane.
    The National UFO Reporting Center, which tracks calls and messages from people around the U.S. and Canada about strange sightings in the sky, reported that it received 5,971 sightings in 2019 -- a jump from 3,395 in 2018.

    Peter Davenport, who runs the independent organization that's based in Davenport, Washington, said he couldn’t explain why more people called about seeing flashing white lights, fireballs, disc-shaped objects or other oddities in 2019.
    "One of the mysteries of ufology is there is a fluctuation in the number of reports over the years," he told ABC News in a phone interview. "Some years it’s been low, but it’s gotten higher recently."

    . . . I noticed the top three States on UFO reporting all have ocean beaches vs inland states, never noted that before . . .
