I didn't want to start a new thread, but I'm curious to see what my fellow historumites think about this. Maybe someone with military experience can take a guess at what this is:
Chilean navy admits it can?t explain ?UFO? | New York Post

Looks like some sort of a rocket or something...

For a classical UFO that activity would be really curious ... no radar sight? Stealth vehicle making experiments ...

UFO unexplained sights are less "prepared". As for I remember from when I was ufologist.

Would appear to be a satellite moving across the sky. If you keep your eye's towards the sky, you'll probably see quite a few per night. Sometimes site two in the sky at the same time. A fair few meteors as well. Sometimes these are quite spectacular. Once I saw one that was light bulb shaped and greenish tearing across the sky. Get a telescope, say like a trouble free 4" ED glass refactor. A good quality azimuth mount to go with it. (expensive) These are easy to use. Then do a little sky viewing and you'll see heaps of satellites and meteors over time. Or try viewing with 10 x 50 mm wide angle binoculars or even 7 x 50 mm. But good quality binoculars start at a $1,000. 6" F8 Newtonians on a dobsonian mount are good and CHEAP. But require a little maintenance.
Have done a bit of viewing in my time, but never seen any flying saucers. I do think once I saw a ball lightening tearing across the sky. These look like a white ball. Make no sound and strangely disappear.

Leonids are meteorites. And they move fast. They don't stand and then move... like a plane. A satellite maybe? There are too many of them up there.

The "gas effect" could be simply gas for real ... a damaged high altitude air balloon could generate that curious effect.
