UFO Sighting Report - Mexico

September 15th 2008 : Puerto Penasco


UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Puerto Penasco

Date: September 15, 2008

Time: 10:00pm - early morning

Number of witnesses: 2

Number of objects: Numerous flashes of lights

Shape of objects: Large ovals of light

Weather Conditions: mostly clear skies, but the lights seemed to originate in a few clouds in the distance over the sea of Cortez.

Description: My friend and I were camping out on the roof of a remote cabin on the Sea of Cortez near Puerto Penasco. It was around 10:00 at night but it was fairly light out due to the full moon. As we looked out to sea, we could see clouds in the distance. I saw a large flash of light that appeared to take place in the clouds. It was as quick as lightning, which made me think that's what it might be. But it differed from lightning in many ways. First of all, the light changed colors. Sometimes it was purple, red, or orange-ish yellow. Also, it wasn't just a circle or blob of light. It was oval-like, flat on the bottom and curved on the top, like a rainbow with it's hollow middle filled in.

I saw at least ten flashes before falling asleep. They occurred every minute or so, but sometimes in extremely quick succession. Even when I woke up in the middle of the night, they were still going on. Also, they changed position. It couldn't have been one object producing the light, unless that object was traveling extremely fast because the light would appear to show up once and then 30 seconds later it would appear again very far from the first spot. The object(s) causing the light were not traveling in a straight line, it(they) seemed to be circling randomly, moving toward and away from us at the same time.

Possible objects?
1. lightning
2. my friend suggesting cloud seeding (but I'm not sure why they would do that)
3. military testing
4. weather testing
5. ????

It would be awesome to discover what created these lights as I'm extremely curious about it.
