I did a search and I have not found references here on ATS about this case. If it has already been posted, I apologize.

I was searching the internet looking for interesting cases about UFOs and I came across this event that happened in the reservoir of El Yeso in Cajón del Maipo in the outskirts of Santiago on the afternoon of February 14, 2010. A family took several photos but only one showed a mysterious object considered “stealthy” because it wasn’t seen by the witnesses. The photos were sent to NARCAP [Dr. Richard Haines’ group/CEFAA], which concluded in a long report that it shows a solid object with its own light.

Chilean CEFAA provides photo of UAP for analysis:


ARCAP (National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena) has signed an official joint-cooperation agreement with the Chilean Ministrial Department of Civil Aeronautics (like America’s FAA) to share information and study UAP cases which affect aviation safety. This is a ground-breaking development, since a government agency has formalized its relationship with a scientific organization in the United States and asked for its assistance in case studies.

The CEFAA (Committee for the Study of Anomolous Aerial Phenomena), an agency within the Chilean civil aviation department, was set up in 1997 to focus on incidents involving UAP that impact aviation saftey. General Gonzalo Miranda, director of the civil aeronautics branch, ordered its creation following a series of sightings witnessed by civil servants and aeronautic experts, along with civilians, at an airport in Northern Chile. The agency has a close working relationship with the Army. Directed by General Ricardo Bermúdez, the CEFAA is now working with NARCAP, the closest group we have in America to an official agency, and NARCAP has links to research associates and technical specialists throughout the world. I hope that soon this relationship will expand to include an American government official who can also liason with the CEFAA and other agencies in various countries.



Dr. Haines was given a fascinating photograph of a UAP by the CEFAA for analysis, and has written a paper, “Photoanalyses of Digital Images Taken on February 14, 2010 at 1717 Hours above the Andes Mountains in Central Chile” for the Chilean government (we call it the “El Yeso” paper). I have been given permission to post that here, for the first time. The photographs are copyrighted and must not be copied or spread around the internet. If that happens, I may be restricted in bringing forward future research of this caliber, so please honor this request.

Here some pictures from the NARCAP analysis:

Excerpts from the analysis made ​​by NARCAP


Sixteen medium and high resolution, digital photos were taken on Sunday, February 14, 2010 at 1717 hrs. local time at 33 47.8’ south; 69 53.35’ W (about 45 miles SE of Santiago, Chile) high in the Andes Mountains.

They were received by the author on May 28, 2010 from the Comite de Estudios de Fenomenos Aereos Anomalos (CEFAA) for analysis and comment. This paper describes the results of various photo-optical measurements made on several of these photographs showing the solar disc, cumulus clouds, reddish clouds at a higher altitude, and an angularly small and unusual image that appeared in one photograph.

These analyses showed that (1) There was a symmetrical, apparently solid object (hereafter referred to as an unidentified aerial phenomena: UAP) with several interesting surface details present in one photograph, (2)

No evidence was found for a digital cut-and-paste operation (a hoax), (3) The UAP was not visible in any of the other photographs taken of the same location in the sky, (3) The location of the UAP was indicated to be on or near a Chilean commercial airway and might possibly have posed a threat to flight safety under certain operational conditions, and (4) The identity of this UAP remains unidentified at this time.



Figure 2 is the primary photograph that was studied; it contained the UAP. It consisted of a 1.26 MB file (1741 x 1306 x 8) at 96 dpi resolution. Figure 3 is the same full frame as Figure 2 increased in brightness and contrast, and divided into sixteen numbered, equal-area rectangles as shown. Specific image details are located by area number and approximate location within each area. For example, the sun is in the lower left corner of area eleven and the reddish UAP is in the upper left-corner of area six.


General Comments and Summary:


It is significant that if this object had mass, was within normal flight altitudes, and remained for any length of time in this location it could have been a hazard to commercial flight operations. Anytime an object of this size and high visibility is in the area where airplanes are flying it can distract the cockpit crew from carrying out their normal duties.

If the object is near by or approaching the airplane the pilot must decide whether to change his heading and/or altitude toavoid a possible collision. Because the present UAP was partially hidden by a reddish cloud layer it must have been higher than this cloud layer by some amount. Its altitude cannot be determined.

If the photographer had noticed the reddish UAP in Figure 2 wouldn’t she have tried to obtain more photographs of it? Why then didn’t she center the location of the UAP in the camera’s field of view in the following photos? Since she didn’t it tends to support her statement that she didn’t see the UAP at all.

Mention also must be made (for the sake of completeness) of the occurrence of the huge 8.8 magnitude earthquake 17 of February 27, 2010 (at 0334:14 hrs. local time) that was centered at 35 deg 54’ 32” South,; 72 deg 43’ 59” W. This was only thirteen days after this photo was taken. The estimated depth of the temblor’s epicenter was 22 miles. The horizontal distance between the photographer’s location at the El Yeso reservoir and the surface location of the earthquake’s epicenter18 is approximately 225 miles! In summary, although this UAP could not be positively identified it presented a number of highly intriguing details that deserve further research.

Hard to explain this phenomenon, because the witness claims to be outside the vehicle when he took this photograph, so there seems to be not a case of reflection.


... some of the photos in the series were taken from inside an utility vehicle. Hermosilla states that the image with the UFO was taken outisde the car

Hope you enjoy the reading and interesting thoughts arise from this.

Awesome post! S&F for the research!

Looks like a solid case to me but what do i know!
The UFO is actually quite detailed, really good picture if its legit.

Good work bro

I like it and if it's genuine it's a nice picture. However from the debunkers point of view, I'm sure they'll try the sun reflection angle.

a zeppelin ?

Interesting picture. It really reminds me of the texture of leather, with stitching around the sides.

The two types of clouds in the pic seems at odds to me, I think it could be a reflection or a super imposed photo.

I'm more interested in the cloud formations. These seem strange enough without the UFO and they would be hard to debunk.

I think thats just the grain in the photo.

The obvious joins at the side make it look very blimp-like, but it could certainly be a Spacecraft of sorts.

The clouds masking it are very perculiar indeed.

I do realize the scale would appear to be different but the texture does remind me of the object in this report

just curious is all

Nice try but I don't think it works, the angle of the object in original pic is not in alignment with the suns rays.

I dunno...seems to line up quite well:



Forgetomori has questioned the witnesses statement that it wasn't taken from inside their vehicle...



Here’s one additional. extremely relevant point. As local UFO group CIFAE comments on, quoting the direct statement by one of the witnesses, Doris Hermosilla, some of the photos in the series were taken from inside an utility vehicle. Hermosilla states that the image with the UFO was taken outisde the car, but the UFO group comments that both the previous and the photo in question actually have fuzzy reflections suggesting otherwise.

Good call!


I agree, its just a camera artifact. The OP intentionally posted the zoomed in pics at a different angle, this causes some confusion. If you look at where the light source is and the strange surrounding clouds you will notice that the little nubs on the spaceship is actually a refraction of the ripples in the weird part of the clouds.

I will try to find the analysis I came across a couple of weeks ago. I read that this has been proven to be a reflection of the speedometer in the car. The analysis even recreated it in an experment and also with other items that can reflect from inside a vehicle.

It gave the impression of false UFO's.

I will post a link when I find it.

We think alike. The first thing that popped in my mind was that Canadian UFO debris found on IsaacKoi's thread.

But after looking closely into it, I tend to think that this is a reflection.

You were right in your first post. The reflection crowd did not take long to arrive.

Reflection.


Even the Chilean CEFFA have trouble identifying this image, but our "expert on call" draws a few lines, makes a silly animation and voila, case closed.
