A one-minute video shows an ethereal orange light, which people describes as a "burning UFO", travelling slowly away before disappearing entirely. People in other South American countries, including the highlands to the southeast of Lima and the area near the Amazon rainforest, also claimed to have spotted similar lights in the sky, igniting suspicions of a coordinated visit from alien life.
This Is Not The First Time That Peru Had A 'Visit' From Extraterrestrials
Peru seems to be a popular alien site with 50 percent of Peruvian citizens claiming to have had an alien experience in the past. There are a lot of theories as to why this is so, but some believe that an age-old attachment with the country's ancient sites could be responsible - inspiring theories that the beings are pleased by the aesthetic beauty of Earth's immemorial structures. This includes the world famous Machu Picchu citadel in the Andes Mountains.
In August, a video showing an entity others claimed to be an alien was leaked. It was both walking and floating over the ground near a gas station in Peru. The video was caught on security camera at around 3:30 a.m. and night-hour workers claimed to have seen the creature too.
Skeptics Say This Could Just Be A Balloon From Google
But other people find it hard to believe and say that this could just one of the high-altitude balloons launched by Google. The company has Project Loon scheme which aims to bring internet access to remote areas, so this could explain the multiple sightings over Peru.
Google's balloons are maneuvered by adjusting their altitude in the stratosphere to float to a wind layer after identifying the wind layer with the desired speed and direction using wind data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). To connect to the balloon network, users use a special Internet antenna attached to their building. There is no confirmation yet if the sighting is indeed Google's balloon.
