Chile: “Short-Armed Dwarves” Described; UFO Activity in North Region
Numerous eyewitness reports from the region of Vallenar and Huasco are becoming known through the media, describing and displaying extraordinary photos and descriptions of strange beings witnessed by locals and caught on film.
Thus, Claudio Ramirez, a subofficer with the Carabineros (state police) of the Huasco Region (Alto del Carmen) received a visit from an elderly drover who allegedly had contact with strange beings traveling in a flying device. The drover, who lives in a remote and lonely area known as Quebrada de Pachuy, bore witness to his experience before police authorities. The drover’s account agrees in a certain way with that of Mrs. Serena Miranda, a resident of the area known as “Crucecitas”, who also claims having seen “unusual dwarves, with short arms, legs and neck”, walking in an open field near her property.
A photograph of a looming object of undefined shape in the skies over Alto del Carmen, taken by a broadcaster engaged in activities involving his radio program, completely unrelated to the subject of UFOs, was displayed on Chile’s Mega Visión Channel. All indications is that there is no trickery involved with the image.
As always occurs in these cases, the considerable media interest in these sightings hinders objective investigation within logical and serious parameters. Controversial characters of the Chilean contactee scene have already appeared, taking over the events and using them for their benefit. It suffices to look at Internet chat groups and websites to confirm this. This is the world of ufology in Chile, where the phenomenon itself – a fascinating one, the confirmation of its existence being crucial to many people – becomes lost among the revelry and “characters that are stranger than the visitors themselves”, who see and describe the fortunate (or unfortunate, according to one’s perspective) people who have experienced these phenomena.
