Most of the videos on the internet that claim to show real UFOs are shot by anonymous civilians.

As a result, regardless of how convincing the footage may be, there will always be some level of skepticism and questions about its authenticity.

A Chilean government agency known as the CEFAA (the Committee of Studies of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena) has been investigating weird objects in the sky since 1997, and earlier this year it released footage captured by Chilean Navy pilots to the public after trying and failing to identify what it was they were seeing.



The 10-minute video was recorded by a pilot and a technician aboard a Chilean Navy helicopter in November of 2014 during a routine patrol mission along the coast of Santiago, Huffington Post reports.

The technician noticed a strange object flying over the ocean through the infrared camera he was testing before both men saw it with their own eyes. They contacted nearby radar stations to report the UFO, but neither station could detect the object and confirmed that there were no other civilian or military crafts had been authorized to fly in that airspace.

At one point in the video, the UFO releases a floating cloud of matter warm enough to be picked up by the infrared camera.

"We do not know what it was, but we do know what it was not," CEFAA director General Ricardo Bermúdez told HuffPo. The Navy immediately turned the footage over to him, and together with nuclear chemist Mario Avila, he interviewed them about what they had seen. "I was very impressed by these witnesses," said Avila. "They were highly trained professionals with many years experience, and they were absolutely certain that they could not explain what they saw."

French analysts proposed that the object was a "medium-haul aircraft" coming in for a landing at a nearby airport and that the cloud was the expulsion of waste, but that wouldn't explain how it went undetected on radar, or why it did not respond to contact attempts by the Navy helicopter.

Air Force analysts ruled out birds, insects, drones, and gliders, and said that "it can be concluded that the object has all the characteristics to be classified as an unidentified aerial phenomenon (UAP)." 

Whatever you want to call it, UAP or UFO, the footage of the object is fascinating and a little creepy if you're a believer. Hopefully, it didn't release any of that black goo from Prometheus...
