A UFO EAST OF MERIDA, YUCATAN (MEXICO)
According to the research of Emilio Cetz and the AUM and Ovni Merida groups, a very important item of UFO evidence was secured in the city of Merida.
These are the photos taken by Alberto Perez Valencia, who employed his cellphone camera to take a video of what he could see in the sky.
According to his report, he was sleeping in his room when he heard strange metallic noises which caused him to get out of bed and take a look. Looking straight ahead through the window, he saw a large object at some 50 meters over the ground over an abandoned lot. The witness says that the UFO was as big as a truck.
The cellphone employed was a Sony Ericsson K300 and recording took place at 3:00 pm
Mr. Alberto Perez, according to the Merida-based ufologists, is a cook from a humble background and has no computer image manipulation skills. They add that there is a "cenote" (a sacred Mayan well) near the place where the sighting occurred, and that very large carved stones were unearthed as the street was being paved.
Preliminary investigation suggests that this event is neither a hoax nor a prank and that the video, over a minute long, appears to be genuine evidence.
