Chile: Cigar-Shaped UFO Photographed Over Volcano

UFO Cigar Chili

A mysterious cigar-shaped object was photographed in the vicinity of the Osorno volcano; local residents claim such phenomena are common in the region (

The Journal of Hispanic Ufology
     SANTIAGO, March 30. - During the month of February and in the midst of summer vacation in the vicinity of Lake Llanquihue, a variety of aerial phenomena were reported that were subsequently associated with the UFO phenomenon.

     Farmers from neighboring communities furnished eyewitness reports in strange lights with irregular movements, usually vanishing from sight near the Osorno Volcano.

     One such sighting was recorded on Jorge Quinn's photo camera as he spent his vacation near the site. The image was completely accidental and the UFO's presence was discovered only after his return to Santiago de Chile. The image shows a cigar-shaped UFO, a configuration catalogued as one of the most common and largest in the UFO phenomenon.

     It should be noted that Southern Chile is considered as a "hot zone" on a global level as regards the presence of unidentified flying objects. Over the past 20 years, highly interesting photographs of unknown objects have been recorded in the vicinity of the Osorno Volcano.

  1. According to the article, "Over the past 20 years, highly interesting photographs of unknown objects have been recorded in the vicinity of the Osorno Volcano" so, I curious why the article does not display any of these "highly interesting photographs". Based on the wording of the paragraph and the confident tone, it is assumed that the author has seen these photographs and would have recorded those images as evidence to support such a claim. In particular, where is Jorge Quinn's photo of the cigar shaped object on which the article is based. The image shown is an illustration, not the actual photograph. A set of links or an image gallery would have been useful in giving the article's claims more credibility.
