PERU: Fireball Crosses Skies over Ticna
Inexplicata-The Journal of Hispanic Ufology-July 26, 2006 A strange fireball similar to a comet crossed the skies over Tacna on Monday afternoon before the startled eyes of dozens of onlookers.

According to the National Meteorology and Hydrology Service (SENAMHI), it could be an unidentified flying object (UFO).

Astonished spectators noted that the "object" crossed the sky slowly until it vanished in the horizon.

The event took place at approximately 17:00 hrs. on Monday over the Monte Verde sector of the Heroic City. In this regard, Guadalupe miranda, director of SENAMHI in Tacna, dismissed the possibility that it could be a comet or meteorite. "Given its flashing characteristics, brilliance and slow movement, it could be a UFO."

Readers should recall that this is not the first report on possible UFOs in the south of the country. On June 8, a Civil Defense official took a photo of a strange object that flew over the Libinas Volcano in Moquegua. On that occasion it could not be ascertained if the object was or was not a UFO.

Anthony Choy, a researcher of anomalous aerial phenomena, maintains that a relationship exists between UFO manifestations and natural or man-made catastrophes.
