A Report from Ana Luisa Cid

According to a news item published on August 21 2007 by the El
Ma=F1ana de Valles newspaper, two unidentified flying objects
allegedly fell in Valles and Xilitla (San Luis Potosi).

The first of them was reported on the evening of Sunday, August
19 and the second during early morning hours of Monday the 20th.

Reporters Antonio Mart=EDnez and Maribor Villalobos state that the
initial report was received by Jose Angel Avalos, an officer on
duty at the Centro de Control y Comando (C4) through the 066
call line. This report was from Rub=E9n Vel=E1zquez, who stated that
a silver object measuring 20 cm long had fallen from the sky in
a plot of land of the San Miguel collective farm.

Another witness, high school student Oscar Gonzalez Mar, a
resident of the El Sidral collective farm, told the "El Ma=F1ana"
newsromm that he had seen a shining object streaming across the
skies toward the Gulf of Mexico between 8 and 9 p.m. on August
19 before he lost it from sight, not knowing whether the object
crashed or not.

Nearly two and a half hours after the San Miguel incident, Mrs.
Saturnina Castillo reported from Xilitla that an object
resembling a fireball had impacted a tree in a property located
near the "Montoya" metal shop, owned by her husband Juan
Montoya, adding that the tree had caught fire.

Joaqu=EDn Hern=E1ndez was a direct witness to the sighting. He and
his family prepare zacahuil  and live next to where the object
hit the ground. In fact, Hern=E1ndez was preparing the zacahuil
batter and he saw the "fireball" as it came down over the tree.
Afraid that no one would believe him, he screamed for Juan
Montoya and his wife to witness the tree bough catching fire.

He added that it was a highly unusual thing to see, as there was
no thunder or storm activity that could lead anyone to think it
had been a stroke of lightning.

The incident was reported to the Municipal Civil Protection
unit, but no investigation was conducted.
