Thank you for your comments on the Mexico City Aug 6 , 1997
video and he claim by me and Sainio and others that the video is
a hoax. As I pointed out in my MUFON paper a year ago, there
are also witnesses. The big question is, did the witnesses
actually see what is in the video? A major problem is that the
videographer is unknown, so far as I know. If said person came
forward, _maybe_ he could say something that would contradict
the evidence of several kinds which indicate a hoax (in
particular, the lack of image smear of the UFO image at times
when the building images are smeared by camera motion).

It seems barely possible that the videographer might have seen a
real UFO that wasseen by th others, but did _not_ videotape it.
But then decided to make an "illustration" of what he saw.

It has always been a mystery as to why something as bizarre as a
30 foot saucer could fly over a large area of the city at such a
low altitued and _not_ be reported by _anyone_  until after the
video was received (over a month later) by Maussan.

Until we get better evidence regarding the video .... one must
assume the video, at least, is a hoax and go on to other things.
