MEXICO: Possible UFO Photographed at Teotihuacan

Source: El Centro (newspaper)
A report by Victor H. Sanchez and Helios Rossell
Date: April 22, 2007

Respected Mexican newspaper “El Centro” published a story on a possible UFO photographed during a ritual organized by successful TV producer Carla Estrada in the Teotihuacan Archaeological Zone, northeast of Mexico City. The full story appears on pages 40 and 41 of the newspaper in question, and reads thus:

“In what has become a tradition to TV productions by Carla Estrada, the cast of her new soap opera, Pasión, met at the Teotihuacán Pyramids to charge up their energy before shooting the episodes. However, no one could have imagined that at the moment the cast raised their hands skyward, an alleged UFO appeared in the photo, as can be seen in the image presented here. No one noticed this detail. What is more, it wasn’t until the image was amplified that [our newsroom] was able to notice something strange in the sky. You be the judge.”

A Remark by Prof. Ana Luisa Cid:

“The article itself discusses entertainment related information and about the actors that will play a part in the new telenovela. However, the paper decided to report on what was seen in the sky at the time. It should be noted that Mr. Miguel Castillo, “El Centro”’s director, has made the following professional and object statement, when asked by the undersigned: “We would like to make clear that we only published the photo and remarked that it could be a UFO, as shown by the image. It would be up to experts like yourself to determine if this is so.”

My personal opinion – and I said as much to Mr. Castillo – is that I consider two possible explanations for the Teotihuacan photo.

1) It could be an object of unknown technology that is not visible to the human eye, but indeed visible to the camera lens, perhaps due to its speed or by vibrating in a frequency that is imperceptible to us, particularly considering the area in which it was photographed and keeping in mind a study performed by Pedro Ferriz, the legendary Mexican ufologist, who suggested that the pyramids generated energy, envisioning the possibility that UFOs need such power to fly.

2) The second option is far more simple, since I cannot dismiss the possibility that a bird was picked up as the photo was taken, and due to given situations, the image presents an optical aberration. It should be noted that the region’s fauna includes vultures, eagles, and hawks, among other species.

Finally, until its exact nature can be determined, it is fitting to classify the material as a “chance UFO”, in the knowledge that the term “UFO” is not synoymous with extraterrestrial craft.
