Dear Errol and Fellow Listers:

I just wanted to see what this video of "fleets of UFOs" taken
by Mr. Arturo Robles Gil looked like so I plugged his name in a
Google search and this is what came up:

1. This link will take you to an investigation of an alleged UFO
photographed by Arturo Robles Gil and supported by Jaime Maussan:


2. Here is a side-by-side comparison of the image created by
Pascal Lopresti by photographing a similar device to that which
appears in Arturo Robles Gil's photographs which he claimed was a


2.  On this page, Mr. Lopresti appears to have investigated
several of Arturo Robles Gil's images and found them to be
highly questionable:


3. Not sure if this investigation of fraud was one of Mr. Gil's
videos but it came up in association with the Google search of
his name:

Robles Gil's other work:

7.  At this site, you can't get the images but there is more
information about Mr. Gil's work:


8. Here is just one of Mr. Arturo Robles Gil's many sightings
and information about his October 27, 2004 sighting, video and
photo's of a UFO described by Jaime Maussan as, ""It's as though
it were an organic being with several tentacles, and some of
these tentacles were putting forth spheres."

video of "fleets of UFOs" over Mexico:


10.  And yet another article about Mr. Arthur Robles Gil's
photographs. (Don't forget to copy-paste the entire URL - too


While gathering videos and photographs of IFO's for the IFO
Database, I spent many hours observing flocks of birds in flight
and many balloons flying overhead.  From my personal experience,
Mr. Arturo Robles Gil's videos of "fleets of UFOs" look almost
exactly like the balloons and birds in flight that I have
observed many times.

My first inclination was to run to the store and buy dozens of
white balloons to video tape but I had the sense to first look
up regulations about "balloon releases" in the US.  Many states
have strict laws about balloon releases due to the impact on the
environment and wildlife.Perhaps someone, somewhere has video
taped large balloon releases and can share these images with us
for comparison purposes?

In just a cursory observation of Mr. Gil's videos, I could not
help but wonder if he suffers from Parkinson's disease or some
other malady that prevents him from holding a video camera
steady. Shaky videos are also another clue the images are not as
they seem and someone may be trying to disguise the true nature
of the objects in question by repeatedly zooming in and out and
moving the camera back and forth in an erratic motion.

It seems to me that if someone has been caught hoaxing an
alleged photograph of a UFO, claims to have dozens of UFO
sightings always with opportunities to video tape and photograph
UFOs and fleets of them, one should weigh the evidence very
carefully before jumping to conclusions that the images are of
genuine UFOs.
