Peru`s UFO investigations office set to be reopened
Washington: Peru`s Air Force is reopening an office that is responsible for probing UFOs because of higher sightings of anomalous aerial phenomena in the skies of the country.
Colonel Julio Vucetich, head of the air force`s aerospace interests division, told the Guardian that the Department of Investigation of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena (DIFAA) was first created in 2001 but has lain dormant for the past 5 years.
The new office will bring together sociologists, archaeologists, astronomers, meteorologists and air force personnel to analyse these events.
Vucetich said that many people don`t report UFO sightings fearing they will be labelled mad or made fun of, but nowadays with new technology - cellphone videos, Facebook, Twitter - they can be much more open, without feeling that they are the only ones who have seen what they`ve seen.
