Alien Photographed in Chile

By November 14, 2007

Follow me on:

Chilean AlienGerman Pereira, at the time of the photograph was a 33-year-old graduate of the University of Concepcion, and had lived in the area of Santiago, Chile for about a year before taking the photograph seen here. He was a camera buff, and took photographs almost everywhere he went. He owned a Kodak DX6490 digital camera.

He was a civil engineer, and having off the afternoon of Monday, May 10, 2003, he rode his bicycle to an area called Parque Forstal. When he saw a police patrol (Carabinero) on horseback, he was interested, and took his photograph. He had absolutely no interest in UFOs. His image shows what appears to be a small being crossing the road during the mounted patrol's journey across a bridge. This is the image that has gone around the world thanks to web sites on paranormal phenomena.

Pereira discussed his photograph at length with reporters, and told them he did not see anything out of the ordinary when he took the photograph, but only noticed the entity when he was transferring photos to his computer. He was well respected in his community, and had no cause to hoax a photograph. He asked for no notoriety, nor financial reward, but willingly shared the photo with the world. His photograph receives a "high credibility" rating from me.

Why did he photograph the horses feet and not the horse and its rider seems a little convenient !

It’s a cropped photo to show the alien.

If you look at the full image, you can see a diagonal leg of some sort. Maybe a tripod supporting the fake creature. The mounted policeman would be the perfect cover for someone to stand there and poke out a plastic creature. The creature is quite close to the policeman’s foot

To support the comment I made earlier. It is strange that in the full image linked below. All the mounted policeman look very very similar. Looking at the blurredness of the photo, I’d say the policeman was digitally put there. In the image you can see three policeman in total. I don’t know if Chile is under an authoritarian military control or not? But it would be strange that in an empty park there would be three policeman patrolling the one place. See the image below.

It is a good fake

Another blurry photo of a so called phenomenon. It’s amazing cause there is CLEAR snap shots of animals that we know exist and of comets and others but, When it comes to “little green men” and Sasquatch NO ONE can get it clear Amazing. Oh yeah cause it is ANOTHER hoax of an attention grabber. No credit yet everyone knows him. Look at the obviuos not the wants.

Dear Friends, I have seen two definite ufos in my lifetime. It always amazes me when people talk about ufos as if they are not real. The ufos that I saw were definitely real, and they did not comefrom this world. I got a good look at both of them, and I have witnesses including a former F.B.I. agent. We are not alone in the universe. As far as I am concerned this is a fact

this is part of a video clip shown on a tv program. as the two officers ride away from each other the entity walks behind and between them.

(17) Robert John Bump says:

The story portrays the person taking the photo as a camera buff with alot of experience. If so then why is it out of focus and a poor photo at that? I believe it to be a fake, and not a good one.

(18) Keith says:

Looks to me as though the rider of the horse is probably traveling through a small village and a tiny baby is walking across the road with maybe just a diaper on, if that.

I do not remember the 1st time I saw this SAME EXACT photo, or where, but, I HAVE seen this photo B 4, MANY TIMES! & It HAS BEEN SHOWING UP every once in a while! & A LOT earlier than 03! I may b wrong about this, but, I seem 2 remember it possibly having to do w/the germans, some time around the 2nd world war!I can not b sure of that, but, I am POSSITIVE this IS the same photo, & it HAS been around for YEARS!Many years, @ least 15-20, maybe longer!
Come on, some 1 out there, w/a real interest in the subject has GOT to remember more on this?

Tony is correct. I also saw this photo years ago. I worked in a computer lab and remember it well. I was suspicious of it the first time I saw it..

My question is, what is a puported alien doing casually strolling across a rural road in broad daylight in the presence of a number of mounted and armed officers? If there is anything that makes me look askance at this photo, it is that question.

IMHO this photo could just as easily show a child or small person crossing the path behind the horseman. The photo is so indistinct that it is not possible to get any feel for the actual features of the entity. There is a certain amount of blurring which may have come from movement of the camera as the photo was taken, and this makes detail even more difficult to resolve.

The paradox we UFO aficionados face is that we clamor for clear photographs of ET’s and UFO’s, but when such photographs appear they are almost always decried as fakes (and in most cases, they have turned out to be just that). So I don’t know what the answer is – I’m just gonna keep waiting for the Zeta Reticulans to land on the White House lawn and show us their ID cards.

(23) sam says:

I think the whole senario is off. If e.t’s are trying to keep thier presence on this planet unknown then why would one be crossing a street with officers on partol right there. I also agree that i would like to see a clear picture for once. Anyone out there that is interested in stuff like e.t’s, ghost, military information, cover ups, men in black, exosisms,information on the war , and armegedon, i suggest listn to 1100 am everynight 12-5 in the morning. They give out true acurate information that i think everyone should know, OH yeah its called coast to coast u can also visit the website, coasttocoastam.com . They are boradcasted world wide. Some of the stuff they have to tell you will open your eyes.

Billy, you’re going crazy with these alien pics aren’t you? Since we hear of possible alien crashes and abductions I guess this is becoming a hot topic- aliens on our soil. I don’t think it’s happening though, because of the possiblity they would get killed and a body would be discovered. I don’t think aliens would take this chance. It’s too risky, I don’t think they want to panic us. If a body is found and a new reporter gets a hold of it, then the cat is out of the bag, and there’s going to be mass panic.

Well I believe that there is other life in the Universe because there are other planets like earth in other solar systems. But I also believe this is a spoof. Until you see Aliens on Live TV, dont believe everything you see.

hi, i’m from chile, and the picture you have there isn’t an alien. It’s a dog , the picture its blury and its dificult to tell, but its actually the fron part of the dog and the “arm” of the alien is the dogs tail, if know how to use photoshop, you’ll be able to sharpen and give a litle definition to the image, then you will se that is a dog. i believ in life in other plantes, but i also like to tell when something its fake or misinterpreted, and this picture was that, not a try to fool or anything like that, it was just misinterpeted as an alien.
And fo the men in horses, they are police man for parks, and they use horses,. In my country they are called carabineros, and they are just for watch over the place ( el parque forestal)
