First I called my friend Aviator Spirito Abajo - President of Tierra Abajo -
about the sightings. He claims, all outer-space visitors have to check in
first at the Tierra Abajo Space Center. The space center - situated near the
border to Valle de Saber Nada - had no registration of any spaceship in that
aerea. Even the Minister of Declination and Desinformation - an expert on
UFO´s - had no idea.
By accident I got Jonathan´s Space Report from August 19 and found something:

"The Russian Military Space Forces launched a Molnya-1T comsat at Plesetsk
on Aug.14 into an elliptical 12 hour orbit. The spacecraft first entered a
low parking orbit of 207x438kmx62.8°. The Block-ML upper stage ignited over
South America to raise the orbit to 450x40800 km. The sun angle made the
rocket plume widely visible, causing s flurry of UFO-reports in Chile...."
