One of the most interesting cases that has come to light occurred in northern Chile just a few days after the earthquake. On 1 march passengers travelling on a bus through Iquique were awoken by a woman screaming, as they turned to look out the window they were confronted with a vertical cylindrical object similar to a florescent tube. At the same time a structure emerged from the sea. Suddenly a humanoid entity almost 3 metres tall emitting a light walked towards the highway. This provoked a sense of panic amongst the passengers. Now UFO expert Enrique Silva and the retired head of the Chilean Air Force Ricardo Bermudez are investigating the case.
These weren´t the only witnesses to the event others in the vicinity also saw the UFO. 'We are gathering testimonies, some students that we interviewed told us that the driver took pictures of the event, which would be a very valuable piece of evidence. This case is interesting and complete. I have not registered a case like this in Chile in at least 20 years', said Silva.
