Six "spheres" flew over Pemex facilities; maneuvered above a storage terminal

10:11 - An unidentified flying object (UFO and six large luminous spheres were detected flying over the Pemex (Petroleos Mexicanos--Ed.) facilities in Tapachula, according to the Disaster Prevention Officer Juan Carlos Zuñiga Rodríguez.

He said that the craft, having the shape of a circular plate the size of a commercial airliner, performed flight maneuvers over the Petróleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) Storage and Distribution Terminal at an altitude no greater than 1000 meters and abnormal speed and direction changes.

Me mentioned that a variety of photographs were taken and that upon developing it was discivered that at least six luminous spheres were flying over the area at the same altitude, although smaller in size than the craft.

All of this material was presented to researcher Jaime Maussan, who immediately commenced the verification of their authenticity by means of sophisticated devices.

He stated that the tests yielded postive results regarding a central object made of unidentified material, and which appeared to be covered by some sort of radiation very similar to that of the spheres. In other word, the authenticity of the photographs was corroborated.

He insisted that in order to make the event known, the corresponding authorization had to be secured from the main offices of the quasi-state organization. Added to this was the factor of awaiting the outcome of Maussan's investigations.

Zúñiga Rodríguez said that according to data obtained from professional spotters, UFOs have been frequent in this region around the oil facilities and points adjacent to the Izapa archaeological region, close to where the "Tree of Life, Creation of the Universe" stele is located.

There are also reports of fly-overs in the vicinity of the inactive "Tacaná" volcano which separates Mexico from Guatemala.
