Mexico: UFOs in Culhuacan

Alfonso Salzar, an aviation technician and consultant to noted researchers, was the first person to report sightings in the vicinity of Culhuacan. Apparently [the object sighted] was a spherical object with a ring around it, similar to the planet Saturn. Many people turned out to witness the heavenly phenomenon. The strange object moved very slowly toward Cerro de la Estrella at around 18:30 hours.

Minutes later, at 18:50 hrs., Salvador Guerrero shot video of a spherical luminous object heading toward the north. He said that the UFO emerged from a cloud bank, flew very slowly and at times appeared to be suspended motionlessly.

Subsequently, at 19:00 hrs., Ana Luisa Cid videotaped a very large luminous object in the northern reaches of Mexico City. The video is brief becaus there was a camera malfunction. The image issued a strong vibration and stopped working. "At first," says Ana Luisa, "I thought the battery had run out... but in fact I don't know what happened, because the camera was inoperable afterward; perahaps it was all a coincidence. I don't know, but the vibration was indeed captured on tape."

Numerous reports were also received from persons who were seeing strange objects in different parts of the city.

As an additional item of information, the National Seismological Service reported earth tremors with a magnitude of 3.8 on the Richter scale in Oaxaca and Guerrero.

"Mexico is a country with seismic regions," says Ms. Cid. "We know that low intensity treamors occur daily. Perhaps there is no direct relation with the UFO phenomenon, but I believe this to be important information to be considered within the scope of an investigation."
