UFO seen in Highlands of South America

Peru was shocked last Monday as a glowing disc, said to be a UFO, spun through Lima, before crash-landing in the Highlands. But is this just whimsical fantasy of crazed alien hunters?


The ‘sighting’ was reported on Peruvian news channels

Footage of this incredible sighting first secured its spot in the headlines on a Peruvian news website (Canaln Express), where a video, which lasts for more than a minute, shows a burning orb flying through the sky. Most would just say that it was a trick of the light or another reasonable explanation, BUT, what hasn’t been explained is that as the ‘UFO’ passed overhead, a single lamp post turned on to full. This also happened to be the only lamp post that the mysterious object flew over. Coincidence??


The lamp post in question…maybe!?

UFO blogger Scott C said, “A UFO was recorded over Lima, Peru this week and in the recording we see a street light suddenly light up. Hundreds of UFO reports report electrical problems when the UFO was near. This is important evidence that this object was a UFO,”

However, the Peruvian capital is no stranger to UFO sightings and many believe that the lamp post turning on was a sign of an alien invasion. Some may say that it is stupid to think aliens would want to take over the Earth, but why have there been so many sightings of ‘aliens’? And why so many in Peru?

Whilst some believe in the UFO, on the other hand, a similar object has been found in the Peruvian Highlands in the Amazon, which has been identified as a “Project Loon” balloon. There is still no confirmation that the UFO and the “Project Loon” balloon are the one and same object so, what do you think? Do you believe in aliens?

    I have always been fascinated by UFOs and I do believe that they are real. Great article, the title and the front picture really caught my eye. If any other UFO sightings occur, I suggest you write about it as this is great, but next time, could you add a video of the sighting?

    it’s strange to think that aliens are coming and so many stories have been told about them
