UFO Sighting Report - Mexico
August 6th 1997 : Mexico City, Mexico
UFO Roundup Vol.2 No.39
The images I am attaching were extracted from a video broadcasted the 28th of September 1997 in “Tercer Milenio” hosted by Jaime Maussan. This program is on every weekend here in Mexico.
Maussan is a well-respected Mexican Ufologist.
On this broadcast he was noticeably excited about the video. He said that he received it on Friday the 26th. Then he proceeded to read a letter that came accompanying the video.
After that he showed an amazing piece of footage.
On it you see a huge UFO hovering over a building. He estimated its size at 20 meters.
You can clearly see the UFO is rotating over its axis. It has a very peculiar motion, as if earth’s gravity is affecting it as it flies. For a few seconds the UFO stays fairly static, then it begins to move. It travels from left to right and goes behind a building, reappearing again on top of the same building. It keeps traveling at a slow pase until it goes behind a second building and we never see it again.
On the audio you can hear the voices of two guys very excited, shouting and screaming as they tape the UFO.
Maussan analyzed the video by testing various “display modes” with a computer and by zooming digitally on the image. He concluded it was highly likely that is was genuine.
The following week on the broadcast of October 5th he continued the investigation. He went to the site where the video was shot and found several witnesses that corroborated the event.
He was calling it “the Supreme evidence” of the UFO Phenomena. He said that it was the best video in existence of a UFO, and that he would continue with the investigation.
I made 4 image grabs of the video. I recorded it on VHS over-the-air so the grabs are not of the highest quality.
Since this report was originally made there have been several follow-ups - see UFO Roundup V2.42 for one such report. There is a report stating that one of the FTP sites holding the movie file (see UFO Roundup V2.41) is owned by a film/video company.
Please note that this sighting is now accepted to be a hoax.
