This is a compilation of 17-month-old video clips from a Chilean military
The case goes back to an air show that was staged in November 2010, at Chile's Air Force academy, which is
headquartered at the El Bosque Air Force Base in Santiago. Nothing untoward was noticed by
anybody during the show itself, but Kean said an engineer at the nearby
aircraft factory noticed an anomalous spot as he was sifting through video
taken from the show, looking for an image that could be used as a poster photo.
The spot appeared to move quickly from frame to frame, and the engineer
thought it looked enough like some sort of craft to notify the Chilean
government agency in charge of investigating anomalous aerial phenomena, known
by the Spanish acronym CEFAA.
The way Kean tells it, CEFAA investigators looked around for other video
clips of the event and pieced together six additional views of the spot-shaped
phenomena. Ricardo Bermudez, a retired Chilean Air Force general who is now
CEFAA's director, told a UFO conference last month that his agency consulted
with other officials, image-processing experts and "non-believer
astronomers." CEFAA's conclusion was that the spots were caused by an
object traveling through the scene at speeds in excess of 4,000 mph — so fast
that it went unnoticed by air-show spectators.
"Humans inside this object could not survive," Kean and a
co-author, former New York Times investigative reporter Ralph Blumenthal,
wrote in a Huffington Post report appearing on Tuesday. "And,
somehow, it made no sonic boom..."
Kean told me that the El Bosque case was notable for several reasons:
"I think what's exceptional about this is that the investigation was
thoroughly managed by a government agency." Also, she said,
"it's something you can actually see with your own eyes." The fact
that the object shows up on seven videos from the same event, recorded from
different vantage points, adds to the intrigue, she said.</object
