Two unidentified flying objects were recorded by the cameras of Bolivian TV channel ATB last Thursday. The first sighting occurred in the early hours of Monday, October 10th. Since then, local residents could not help but notice the presence of other UFOs in the skies over their city.

According to Julio Espinoza, Paola Medina and José Romero, the time was 20:30 when they went out to the street adjacent to the television station to see the possible presence of a UFO, since since last Saturday, the staff was following up on the phenomenon after having collected the images provided by Gustavo Ponce, a citizen who had visual contact with an unidentified flying object (UFO) in the morning hours on Monday.

According to Paola Medina's account, they began to watch the skies at 20:30 hours and by 21:00 had detected a strange object in to the southwest of the Bolivian city of Oruro, which was rhomboidal in shape and with incandescent lights that changed colors from yellow to red to blue.

"It also changed shape, since it transformed from a rhomboidal shape into a perfect square and into a classic flying saucer," she said.

This observation was confirmed by the citizens who phoned the TV station from various parts of the city to report the presence of the phenomenon. Citizens also saw another object flying over the eastern section of the city: it was circular in shape with a shiny yellowish light. It moved with a swinging motion and vanished from the sky half an hour later.

Last Friday, several persons reported the presence of strange objects in the skies over the city. One citizen even said that one of the UFOs was at the altitude of the radio and TV antennas located on San Felipe hill.
