Location: Parque Forestal, Santiago, Chile
Engineer Germán Pereira was taking photographs
of the Carabineros (state police) on horseback in the
Parque Forestal of Santiago, Chile. One of the photos,
after being downloaded from his digital camera, showed
the image of a possible alien being. CIFAE Chile has interviewed
the witness and undertaken the analysis of the photograph.

from the witness, Civil Engineer Germán Pereira:
from Concepción and have been working in Santiago
for little over a year. On May 10, this year, I decided
to take some photos at Parque Forestal, taking some 10
shots which I downloaded to my PC, the following day."
thought it would be interesting to photograph a group
of Carabineros (state police) on horseback patrolling
the sector. The photo was taken at 17:40 hrs approximately
from the corner of JM de la Barra and Av. Cardenal José
María Caro, in front of Bellas Artes and looking
was a cloudy day and the sun was hidden, for which reason
my digital camera (Kodak DX6490) adjusted to low speed
(1/10 seg.). This is the reason why the photo shows motion
(those knowledgeable about photography will know the reason
why). Furthermore, the Carabineros were som 20 meters
distant, and I employed the camera's optical zoom (10x)
which added to the blurred result."
fact is that I am very impressed by this image. I attest
to the fact that it is not a fraud nor anything similar.
For this reason, I have made it public and I contacted
the staff of CIFAE Chile. I would like to know the true
nature of the image that appears in it and if anyone has
ever caught anything similar in a photo. Nothing more."
