Argentina, huge object lights up Patagonia; Original article by Alessandro Brizzi.
Santiago Arévalo is the photographer who managed to capture the exact moment when a huge luminous object lit up Patagonia and told the sequence on his Instagram account. He noticed that after posting the images, people from various places wrote to him, saying they saw the same phenomenon. Santiago said he went down to the beach at midnight that night with four people. The goal was to take astrophotography of the Milky Way “since you can see it with the naked eye in a low-polluted environment”. The photographer put it all together: “I set the corresponding settings to take the picture and so I leave the camera on the side doing a night-lapse”. “This mode is used for long exposure exposure and Time-lapse videos but in low light situations,” Santiago said on Instagram.
“We all sat on the sand looking at the stars and talking for a while, around 1:30 am we see that from behind the mountains, on the other side of the lake, a kind of white glow begins to appear.” “We all thought it was the moon coming out of that sector, which is very strange because the moon comes out from the totally opposite side. I run to the tripod to turn the camera in that sector and let me take some pictures to see what I can get to save from what we have seen, which up until then was the moon. ” “After a few seconds we see that it wasn’t the moon, that it was a point, something a little bigger than a star, but it was accompanied by a kind of halo in the shape of a Triangle.”
“At that moment we were all thinking what it was, if it was a plane, but it didn’t have the red and green lights on the sides. It was super weird and the light was very white. After a few minutes it vanished into the sky and the cloud-white glow remained for a few more seconds. ” “In the camera I was able to record this and you can see the trace that light made over the time the camera closed, that’s why you can see a line and not a point. The next day we talked to other acquaintances who were in the same campsite and they told us that they were also watching it from another section of the beach. ” What did NASA say about it? From NASA they explained that this fact responds to the passage of a rocket that belonged to a failed lunar mission in 1966, which was pushed by a centaur from the 1960s. The NEO (near-Earth object for its acronym in English) was discovered in September by astronomers looking for nearby asteroids and was seen this Sunday around 1:30 am throughout the Patagonian area. All lies of course, dictated by NASA, given that an object of enormous proportions, larger than the Moon, cannot be attributed to the presence of an old Centaur rocket that is adrift in space.
