Air force to revive office that lay dormant for five years after increased sightings of ‘anomalous aerial phenomena’

Peru’s air force is reopening an office responsible for investigating UFOs due to “increased sightings of anomalous aerial phenomena” in the country’s skies.

The Department of Investigation of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena (DIFAA), first created in 2001, is being revived after lying formant for five years because more UFO sightings have been reported to the media, said Colonel Julio Vucetich, head of the air force’s aerospace interests division.

The unit will bring together sociologists, archaeologists, astronomers, meteorologists and air force personnel to analyse these events, Vucetich told the Guardian. “Many people don’t report UFO sightings because they fear they will be labelled mad or made fun of, but nowadays with new technology – cellphone videos, Facebook, Twitter – they can be much more open, without feeling that they are the only ones who have seen what they’ve seen,” he said.

“This new office needs those people to come and report their sightings so we can open a file and, using their information, do the respective analysis and investigation,” he added, flicking through a hefty scrapbook of newspaper cuttings recording Peruvian UFO sightings dating from 1950 to the present day. Peru’s Institute for Studies of Historic Aerospace is turning it into a book.

Vucetich said the office had responded to increased sightings of natural and artificial phenomena, from meteorites to “space junk” in Peru. “When you present evidence of UFOs, people can react with terror or hysteria, so we have to be very careful how we present it,” he stressed.

UFO sightings are not uncommon in Peru. Two weeks ago, local media reported that villagers in Marabamba, in Peru’s central Huanuco region, watched luminous balls of light in the sky over several days. Numerous reported sightings of UFOs have been made in Chilca, a beach resort 59km south of Lima. The unexplained sightings have attracted UFO investigators from around the world. One former resident, Paulina Jimenez, 82, told the Guardian how 16 years ago she saw “a huge number of flashing lights” over a bluff overlooking the resort’s Yaya beach, the most regular location for UFO sightings among local residents.

“There are various locations in Peru where there are regular sightings. What’s bad is that those reports have never been proven so I can’t, on behalf of the air force, verify those,” Vucetich said.

He added that he, too, had seen what he could only describe as “anomalous aerial phenomena”. “On a personal basis, it’s evident to me that we are not alone in this world or universe.”

Area 51 ‘declassified’ in U-2 spy plane history

Area 51, so-named for its designation on a 1950s-era map, surrounds a dry lake bed, Groom Lake

The CIA has officially acknowledged the secret US test site known as Area 51, in a newly unclassified internal history of the U-2 spy plane programme.

The document obtained by a US university describes the 1955 acquisition of the Nevada site for testing of the secret spy plane.

It also explains the site’s lingering association with UFOs and aliens.

The remote patch of desert surrounding Groom Lake was chosen because it was adjacent to a nuclear testing facility.

“The U-2 was absolutely top secret,” Chris Pocock, a British defence journalist and author of histories of the programme, told the BBC.

“They had to hide everything about it.”

The U-2 plane, developed to spy on the Soviet Union during the Cold War, is still flown by the US Air Force.

Reports of UFOs

The document, a secret 1992 internal CIA history of the U-2 programme, was originally declassified in 1998 with heavy redactions.

Many of the blacked-out details were revealed this month after a public records request by the National Security Archive at the George Washington University in Washington DC.

The site was selected for the U-2 programme in 1955 after an aerial survey by CIA and Air Force staff.

According to the history, President Dwight Eisenhower personally signed off on the acquisition.

Officials from the CIA, Air Force and Lockheed, the contractor building the U-2, began moving into the facility in July 1955.

While a lengthy account of the development of the U-2 spy plane programme, the history also attempts to shed light on the public’s fascination with the Area 51 site and its lingering associations with extra-terrestrials and UFOs.

It notes that testing of the U-2 plane in the 1950s – at altitudes much higher than commercial aeroplanes then flew – provoked “a tremendous increase in reports of unidentified flying objects (UFOs)”.

What was Flying over Santiago, Chile 4 Days Ago?

4 Comments

On the 17th & 18th of December this year several glowing orbs, which looked like an alien fleet was observed over Santiago, Chile.

Usually these things are pronounced a hoax, but these seem to be filmed  from three different sources.

The wonderful thing about the mainstream media, not a word has been printed in five days…

UFOs, are they real?

I note that no air or military authority has commented either, maybe this one is too hard to explain.
