UFOs Over Piura

Some residents of Piura believe that we are not the only ones in
the universe, but sightings of unidentified flying objects
are no longer strange. A Piuran attorney was terrified
when he felt the phenomenon=92s murmurs.

PIURA =96 Those who delight in speaking of aliens may calmly be
considered insane. It has even been observed that people have
forged alleged proof in an effort to achieve notoriety, or were
also part of a psychosocial phenomenon. However, this phenomenon
is rampaging in our city. On April 19, a researcher from
Proyecto UFO managed to pick upn an object at 11 p.m. , flashing
orange and silver lights in the desert between Piura and Paita.
Since 1999, the Proyecto, formed by four good friends, decided
to look into these sightings. They overcame their fear of the
unknown and always organize vigils for sightings. They are
convinced of an alien presence during the last Aerosport
Festival organized by the Peruvian Air Force (FAP). There are
hundreds of videos circulating on YouTube, where we find a news
report from the defunct Hechos publication, reporting a
sighting at the Los Cocos urbanization on February 8, 1994. Is
there any truth to all this? Now, attorney Luis Vazquez Coronel
offers us an astonishing story, =93Cerro Pilan, a UFO highway=94.
Terrifying... Vazquez Coronel, who also teaches English at a
renowned school, was nearly indifferent to the UFO phenomenon.
When he heard Anthony Choy, former head of the Oficina de
Investigacion de Fenomenons Aeroanormales (OIFA), a dependency
of the FAP itself, discuss sightings in Chulucanas, he was
overcome by curiosity.

To date, Vazquez Coronel has made 16 trips and is terrified by
each experience. He neither makes conjectures nor indulges in
guesswork =96 he only tells the truth as he knows it. His close
encounter of the first kind occurred in July 2007. He discusses
that hapless trip in his book: in the company of two friends
from Piura and two other locals, he came across a weird light in
the village of Palo Blanco.

=93A star that made an abnormal movement,=94 as he describes it.
Fear gripped their bodies, because this light was chasing them.
Beating naysayers to the punch, Vazquez Coronel writes: =93They
say that these red and turquoise lights are seen around the
mines, and it can=92t be true, because [they] follow a definite

He had two unusual experiences in subsequent trips. He was able
to see a vessel irradiating =93luminous triangles=94 in the blink of
an eye over Cerro Pilan. =93It was shaped like a hanging
parachute,=94 he explains. All of this is recorded in photo and
video formats. The adventurers ascended the summit of Cerro
Horquetudo in 10 minutes and also noted the presence of lights.
Hearing echoes [in the darkness] froze their blood colder than
the North Pole. It is for this reason, they say, the very few
dare the ascent, out of a fear that the peak will bewitch them.
=93People would opine that this is insane,=94 we argue, and he
replies: =93People feel very comfortable with reality, with what
they know.=94  Some prophets claim that the increase in sightings
heralds something, but Vazquez Coronel=92s testimony concludes by
saying that the only thing palpable is fear.

Further information: UFO sightings follow a route that begins in
Chulucanas, passes over the treeline toward Piura, reaches the
Alas Peruanas Universty, the Bolognesi Bridge, flies over
Santisimo Sacramento parish and ends at Cerro Azul.
