The first footage of a mystery UFO that has baffled the government for more than two years has finally been released to the public.
The clip was recorded on November 11, 2014, by a pilot on board a Chilean Navy helicopter.
He was accompanied by a Navy technician, who also witnessed the strange event as he was testing an infra red camera.
Details from the flight suggest the pilot had many years of flying experience. The aircraft was flying at approximately 4,500 feet and visibility at the time of the sighting was good.
The strange object was observed by both men with the naked eye at around 1.52pm.
After zooming in with the infra red camera, the pilot then reported the unknown object to air traffic controllers who confirmed that no other plane had been authorised to fly in the area.
It also appeared to be undetectable on the helicopter's on board radar.
In the clip, the object appears to be quite flat, and elongated.
The pilot stated that the UFO featured: "two thermal spotlights like discharges that did not coincide with the axel of motion."
The technician observed the object as: "White with a semi-oval shape on the horizontal axis."
