A massive UFO sighting took place on Friday June 24, 2005 in Xalapa, Mexico witnessed by Xalapa's governor Fidel Herrera Beltran, members of his staff, the Xalapa's police department, newspapers and television reporters and many people gathered at Casa Veracruz for an official ceremony where the new patrol units wouls be delivered to the police department.

The surprising incident took place at 10:30 AM causing commotion, excitement and certain alarm amont the people and officials. Just after governor Fidel Herrera Beltran made a speech inagurating the new units and during an inspection of a new patrol his attention was called by his officials signaling to the sky where a strange spectacle was appearing.

A spectacular UFO fleet of at least 14 unkown flying objects captured the attention of all the people gathered at casa Veracruz who signaling to the sky screamed OVNIs, OVNIs !! in an agitated state of excitement. The police officers were also signaling to the sky wondering what these unknown flying obJects could be.

Diferent reactions were heard from surprise, curiosity, disconcert and even some laughs among the people who continue shouting OVNIs !! The newspaper reporters were taking photos and the television crew recording the unusual spectacle. Governor Fidel Herrera Beltran took the microphone and said joking: It seems the martians have arrived !!

The people wondered if the strange objects could be balloons of some kind or in fact real UFOs like those so many times reported over Mexico. However the engimatic flying objects remained almost static in the sky in formation describing a triangle pattern in perfect alignement for almost 30 minutes, time enough for the incident to be videotaped by the media and some persons from the audience.

On Friday night TV Azteca presented the report with videos on their national tv newscast giving the account of the unprecedent incident. On Saturday June 25 the Diario de Xalapa newspaper as well as others published on main headlines the unusual event under the title: Luminous Objects caught the attention during official act.

Special thanks to Arturo del Moral.
