This is sort of a personal account. My father told me about this, and he was told this by one of his long time friends. This type of sighting is not
isolated to one person of course, this just happens to be my source.
This happens in Chile, along the Andes mountains.
There is one road that runs by or through the mountains (inhospitable).
Quite often one can see lights shooting in and out of the mountains some distance away from the road.
The lights are said to shoot out of the mountains very fast, stop in mid air for a brief time, then shoot off in any direction sometimes even straight
Soemtimes the lights would be incoming, stop in mid-air, then shoot into the mountains.
My father's friend had never heard of this area and the anomaly, so when he first saw the lights he was scared to death because he had absolutely no
clue what they were.
After my father first told me this story, I was a little skeptical...Maybe it was some old wives tale from way back or something.
It wasnt until one day that these lights were mentioned in a UFO program I was watching not too long ago that I realized that there is something
Apparently from what my father tells me, its not a rare thing to see these shooting lights at night, and that they are seen quite regularly.
Anyone else ever hear about this or something similar?
I just asked my dad some more about it and he said his friends saw 10 of these UFOs in 2 hours of watching.
