UFO Santiage, Chile 1989

At first the object appeared to go up like a rocket, but then slowed down. I watched it for awhile before actually getting my video recorder.

The light went straight up in appearance and seemed to be a rocket. It lasted a seemingly long time. Then it hovered and moved relative to a planet or star. It stayed that way for a long time, just moving slowly and eventually fading out but still moving. It was the middle of the night, summer and hot. The air was calm. I looked out to the west and nearly straight up as that is the only direction the light travelled.

I recorded 3 minutes of the light as it moved relative to a planet or start. I have video available.
