Go Back Report # 976


1969 - The crew of a fishing boat off the coast of Quinteros1, Chile watched an odd looking object enter the water at around 5:00 p.m. and then vanish. Another unidentified aircraft was seen overhead at the same time.

Note 1: I believe that the spelling of the town is off slightly. Quinteros is inland and the only reference to it says it is a stream while Quintero (without the “s”) is a coastal city.
