Is this a UFO or just another sighting of a drone?
A group of young individuals filmed this UFO at the La Serena beachfront promenade La Avenida del Mar. Now, according to Openminds, this is a popular location for tourists (which would lean towards the theory of a drone sighting). As Chilean news site El Observatodo describes, the UFO video shows a small yellow light moving in the sky at different speeds and quickly changing altitude. According to the UFO Digest, one of the witnesses states that the UFO lands in an empty lot on the beach before ascending again (another nod towards a remotely controlled drone). The video of this UFO can be viewed below.

This video is quite interesting, however the object that is shown in the video is not performing incredible feats of which could not be maneuvered by a conventional aircraft. There are plenty of drones out in the world which are in the hands of amateur hobbyists that are being flown on a daily basis. Now I'm not shooting down the possibility that extraterrestrial life could be visiting us - I believe it is a very possible that alien life could be visiting us and probable that other life in the universe does exist - but I sincerely doubt that this particularly exotic craft is of unfamiliar origin. This bizarre UFO actually reminds me of the DJI Phantom drone (quadcopter). There is a video of this drone below as an example. Notice that the drone is even able to be equipped with LED lights that are very similar to the Chile UFO.

With flying drones on the rise and so easily accessible, how much more difficult is it going to be to provide ufologists with credible evidence? Have we missed our chance?
