On January1, 1998, at 8:30 p.m., during a birthday party in a house in Maipú, (Santiago Metropolitan Region) a video of a sighting was recorded.The CEFAA named it “Parachutists in Maipú”.
The witness said: “I saw about five figures flying, it seemed as though they had balloons on their head. Rather than balloons, it looked like color paper sheets. They were not falling down. They were rather floating about moving slowly. They appeared from the South and passed by right above us.”
When the video was received, the CEFAA started an investigation and sent a copy to the NIDS (National Institute for Discovery Science) in the U.S.A. to have it analyzed.
Here are the results of the process:
