It is 'a genuine UFO': 'We're getting closer to the truth,' scientists say.
Scientists re-analyzed an image showing a saucer-shaped object over Chile.
It shows an orange 'blob' hanging in reddish clouds during the day in 2010.
A giant UFO pictured over Chile in 2010 has been described as genuinely unidentified by alien hunters.
The image appeared to show a glowing orange object hidden behind the clouds and was taken by a family picnicking in the Andes Mountains in 2010.
The National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena (NARCAP) investigated the sighting the same year, but scientists are reopening the case as part of a new documentary that attempts to prove or debunk strange phenomena.
An expert in physics from the University at Albany said: 'This object is truly unidentified, so it is a genuine UFO.'
A photo snapped by a family picnicking at the Andes Mountains in 2010 that appears to capture a 'massive saucer-shaped object' has been re-analyzed by scientists to determine if it was a UFO or simple camera effects.
The only evidence of the sighting is a July 2010 report that describes the exterior boasting a red and white woven pattern with a large region of straight individual lines along the bottom - and the 'disc' could be up to 200 feet long.
The image was taken during the day on a Sunday, which shows the sun shining through white clouds and a band of reddish clouds to the left, encasing a glowing 'solid' orange object with 'interesting surface details,' according to the NARCAP report.
The image's story dates back to February 14, 2010, when a couple and their one-year-old daughter spent the day at the El Yeso Reservoir.
The mother snapped 16 photos of the stunning valley and sky above, and upon returning home, she noticed the reddish clouds with the object.
The Chilean government shared the photo with NARCAP, an advisory of aviation professionals investigating UPAs and aviation safety.
Ted Roe, head of the organization, conducted a lengthy analysis of the image, publishing a 23-page report on July 2, 2010.
Roe was featured on 'The Proof is Out There' where he said: 'This study resolves that this is in fact an external anomaly.
