A large lake in Chile dissapeared overnight , leaving in its place a giant pit 30 meters deep , but placed in dry soil reported a head of the National Forestry Corporation (CONAF). CONAF requested help from geologists to find out what happened to the lake, located approx. 2000 kilometers southeast of Santiago. What they found is that this rather large lake had simply dissapeared and the quite large icebergs that were residing in the lake are now sitting in the dry bottom of what once was the lake. There were eyewitness reports of UFOs sucking up the water of the lake.

Wow!

That is not an everyday thing!

I wonder what they will do with our water.
DO they need it to live?
Are they running out of it?

Who knows?

I would say there is a natural reason for this and what we have is the usual thing where a bunch of uneducated people attribute something to UFO's simply because they are unable to understand it.

Wow, that is pure craziness!!! Excellent find! I wonder if there are any other cases of such things happening. I'm going to be watching this thread because I'm very interested in what people have to say.

S&F for you! This is fascinating even if it had absolutely nothing to do with UFO's! Even a completely natural cause interests me.

Not buying it........

Also, what kind of lake has icebergs in it but is only 30 meters deep? Any body of water that has been around long enough to contain icebergs, would be considerably deeper then that....

naa too much doesnt add up...

What about the fish???

Was the lake inhabited with wildlife?? Birds, plant life, etc?

*IF* it was UFO activity then theyd likely use the water for fuel because theyd burn it for hydrogen. The same way were looking for Lunar water for rocket fuel to fund a Lunar Base.
The only other explanation would be a landslide or huge underwater cave collapse, but even then downstream there'd be evidence of massive floods and tree's/villages downstream washed away.

This was a widely reported event a couple of years ago when it happened ... here's a few of many links on the story.

Not likely to be a UFO, but rather a combination of glacial melting, earthquake, and ground fissures.

Just because this happened in Chile doesn't make these geologists any more uneducated than any where else on the earth. I'm ready to hear an educated explanation .

I'm a BIT skeptic too, but if you watch the video, near the end it says that a UFOlogist affirms that they often suck water....

I would think there is a natural reason also but how and why do you assume that the witnesses are uneducated and unable to understand what they saw?

The lake had no fish because it was water of glacial origin.

Judging from the video looks like a glacial lake in the andes if i had to take a guess i figure a fissure under the lake opened up and created a giant drain. Causes either an eartquake or there was ice clogging the fissure and it melted. If they send some real scientists there theyll probably figure it out.

Well let me give you one. Since the lake was left full of icebergs then maybe the lake was partially supported by an iceberg daming off one part. As we all know galacial ice in the Mountains around the world is melting. So when the ice melted enough the water started to drain. That makes a heck of a lot more sense than trying to attribute it to UFO's.

You beat me to the punch. It probably was not so much a lake as a dammed ravine fed by glacier waters. given a fissure or another opening for the water to go, it could drain very quickly, especially if the water goes back underground.

Its because everytime you see an event attributed to a UFO it is always done by people just making up crazy reasons for stuff they cannot comprehend. UFO's are the new boogeyman.

Also:


Chilean glaciologist Gino Casassa, one of the 63 experts who participated in the second UN report on global warming, told the La Tercera newspaper that he believes the lake disappeared due to a relatively common glacial phenomenon: a Glacial Lake Outburst Flood (GLOF). A GLOF is a sudden increase in a lake’s volume due to one of various possible causes, including a volcanic eruption, an earthquake, an avalanche, or a portion of a glacier falling into the lake.

Casassa said that the GLOF broke open a tunnel of ice below the lake, which drained the water to the ocean. “In this zone in particular... we have evidence that, in general, the lakes are filling up as the glaciers melt,” Casassa added. Global warming is most likely responsible for this process, as well as for the increase in GLOFs.

Although the phenomenon is more commonly observed in the Himalayas, GLOFs have previously been seen in Chile, affecting the Perito Moreno glacier and Lake O’Higgins.

The video from the OP may be referring to another lake disappearance that also happened in 2008 ...

However, as the article and/or a google search for "lake disappears" reveals, this is an uncommon yet not unheard of event.

So how in the hell would those uneducated witnesses not know the difference between draining and UFO's?

Earth is covered in water. We automatically become a target to those seeking it from other worlds. We have a big bulls eye on us and it's called water. This could be possible because we know very little. We just think we know everything.
