Costa Rica: Probable UFO Video in Costa Rica

Malvin Badilla, a Costa Rican construction worker, managed to
record a very compelling video of a possible disc-shaped
unidentified flying object.

The object appears to spin on its own axis and makes maneuvers
in a matter of seconds. The witness states that its apparent
size was slightly larger than that of a tractor tire, adding
that the time was 3:49 in the afternoon.

Luis Carlos Monge elaborated on this report for Telenoticias,
which was broadcast over the three separate editions.

Some aspects of the video:

- Recorded on a Motorola cellphone in 3GP format.

- Duration of 15:06 seconds.

- There is a break at 3:19, when the zoom is applied, a
situation that can be normal in some cellphone models when the
zoom is used. This information must be checked against a similar

- The object remains static and later changes position, tilting
toward the left and the right in fractions of a second, showing
other aspects such as: the upper, lateral and lower view,

- This copy of the video is from researcher Richard Sandi. The
file was labeled "22-11-07-1550", leading me to suppose it is 22
November 2007. In Luis Carlos's report, dated 30 November, the
witness claims to have recorded it :"some days ago" - therefore,
the label could match the date of the sighting.

Mr. Badillo mentions being in the company of another person, his
co-worker William Rivera, who pointed the flying object out to
him. Badillo couldn't hear him it at first due to the noise of
the drill he was using on the job.

Regarding audio, it should be noted that the copy I received
appears not to have any. So I asked reporter Monge about it, and
he replied verbatim: "Yes it does, but it is very low. You can
hear the boy shouting William, William, then the drrill sound.
According to him, the object made no sound whatsoever."

Ana Luisa Cid's Opinion

After reviewing the video several times, in slow motion and
frame by frame, I believe that this could be genuine material
and while it is true that "UFOs" can be created on the computer,
it is nonetheless true that many people around the world have
reported and documented artifacts of this sort.

The witness seems sincere and I find it feasible that he should
have experienced a sighting.

I extend this opinion in a preliminary capacity, as we still
need to see the research of Costa Rican ufologists, who will
doubtless have a more qualified opinion by virtue of
interviewing the witnesses and vistiting the site to conduct
field work.

The video shall be transmited as an exclusive in Mexico on 7
December on the "Con Claridad" program on Channel 3 of Pachuca
