Unidentified flying objects were seen in the sky around 8:30 a.m. causing great expectation among residents of Orizaba and Córdoba.

Hundreds of residents of the Córdoba-Orizaba area were witnesses to a seldom-seen spectacle. For several minutes, numerous unidentified flying objects were witnessed in the skies above.

It all started a little after 8:00 a.m. as students from a school who were meeting for their morning assembly saw some white dots in the sky that resembled balloons. The unusual event also happened to attract the attention of parents and teachers and some people on the street. A principal teacher of the Constitucion de 1917 high school located on Avenida 11, said that the objects were 5 or 7 at first, and finally totalled 14 or 16.

"They were white, not shiny like stars. They moved in a circle at first and then they headed single file toward Orizaba," remarked the witness, adding that both students and teachers alike witnessed the event, which lasted some 25 minutes. Also in Orizaba, at the Carlos Cardenas Rojas primary school in Colonia Cidosa, mayor Martin Cabrera Zavaleta headed a civic event when one of those present asked that people look up to some balloons in the sky.

"First they were 6, then 9. Suddenly they started moving while others remained fixed," said one witness. Two of the strange objects moved toward one side and 6 toward the opposite side. One of them remained motionless and finally all of them vanished.

Professors, parents, students, reporters and municipal authorities were witnesses to the extraordinary event that was also seen at other schools and sites without anyone being able to find a satisfactory explanations. Phone calls were received at this news room inquiring about the phenomenon. No authority offered an explanation for this unusual event.

Witness differ somewhat about the time and duration of the event. Some state that the alleged UFOS were seen at approximately 8:30 a.m. for some 20 to 25 minutes. Others in Orizaba state that the saw the objects for litte more than 25 minutes.
