Location: Santiago (Chile),
Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
A light went up into the sky, hoovered around for awhile, changed color, and moved around. The light was bright red and eventually faded.

I was sitting on the balcony of the apartment. I was looking up into the sky and observed, at first, what I thought might be a flare or a rocket. But the object was travelling upwards. I got my video camera to tape the object. The object changed from a bright white to a very red color. I zoomed in and out to get some reference as to the relative location of the object. It travelled upward and then seemed to hoover. I taped it moving around in a small area bounded by some stars or planets. There was no noise or any other phenomena associted with the event. I was certain that the object was some type of UFO. The video tape is not as clear as what I witnessed, but the object and stars are visible. I tried to make a copy of the video, but the copy quality was not good. I still have the original video tape and would make it available for reproduction.
