Possible UFO Landing In Southern Chile

A 30 meter radius was completely scorched. According to
measurements made by the military, there were high levels of
radiation in the area.

SANTIAGO, November 15.- A circular imprint measuring 30 meters
in diameter was found by military personnel from the "La
Concepci=F3n" Regiment based in Lonquimay, in Chile's Ninth
Region. The forces isolated an area consisting of pasture fields
and trees in a radius of 1200 meters.

This information was made known to Terra.Cl's Ufology Channel by
researcher and retired Carabineros major Raul Gajardo Leopold..

In a telephone conversation from the city of Angol, Gajardo
noted that this case was given to him on October 27. "It was
approximately 2 months ago that a mounted patrol from the
Carabineros Barracks at Liucura, a dependency of the 5th
Sheriff's Office at Curacaut=EDn,  established that in a location
some 3 hours away from Angol there was considerable military
personnel belonging to the "La Concepci=F3n" Regiment of
Lonquimay. They isolated an area consisting of pasture fields
and trees in a 1200 meter radius, like a soccer field," he said.

According to the researcher, the reason for the show of force
was the discovery of a burned patch of grass. The phenomenon
extended over a diameter of 30 meters and burned tree trunks and
a substance similar to whitewash could  be observed.

"At equidistant points of the circle there were also 4 circles
measuring 15 cm, which were not scorched. They are like four
legs at the center of the circle. What is strange is that the
snow never got to cover the circle. The exact location of this
site shall be kept confidential in order to research it
carefully, explained Raul Gajardo. .

** Radiation at the Site**

A strange fact was that measurments made by the military through
a Geiger counter had recorded a high level of radiation in the

Gajardo further added that he is the phase of collecting all of
the data and stated that the individuals who furnished the
information to him are completely trustworthy.

Another interesting fact is that Carabineros personnel were
barred entry to the site, while a member of the Army's upper
echelon visited the area by helicopter.
