MEXICO: UFO FALLS IN LA ANTIGUA (VERACRUZ)
Locals say: "It was a fireball"
The sighting of an aerolith or Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) over La Antigua caused great expectation and uncertainty among local residents. The object fell at sunset, leaving a luminous wake.
According to preliminary reports collected by NOTIVER, around 18:00 hours yesterday, several persons witnessed the event, which could be seen unaided. At the barracks of the Public Safety Office of Ciudad Cardel, duty personnel received dozens of phone calls who believed it was an aircraft in flames, falling to the ground. Others believed that the object was meteorite-shaped, since it left a wake as it fell to earth. A bright light was seen as it fell in the vicinity of La Antigua. Personnel of the SSPE, aboard their vehicles, surveyed the region, but until yesterday no reports of either aerial or terrestrial accidents had been received, nor of the possible explosion of a tank car. However, the sighting was a cause for alarm against those who saw it, since the light appeared to descend out of the darkness from a point in space, only to fall somewhere on the earth.
