Mexico: Object Causes Wonderment in Merida, Yucatan

On the evening of January 27, 2007 at 8:30 p.m., dozens of
people informed the local media of Yucatan, Merida of the
presence of unidentified flying objects in the sky, which they
described as having a circular shape with eight surrounding
lights, adding that the object made oscillating movements and
that it vanished into the horizon after a few minutes.

This sighting was captured on video by Mr. Rene Couoh Chac=F3n
from the Vicente Sol=EDs district, showing the evidence to
reporters from the Por Esto newspaper and Mexican researchers
Gustavo Aleman and Prof. Silvestre Leal of the OVNI Merida

According to the witnesses, around 6 p.m. and before the
sighting of the alleged UFO, a kind of shooting star crossed the
firmament from west to east, but it had a rectangular shape and
a trail of light.

Victor Lara Martinez, a reporter for the Por Esto daily, says
that one woman interviewed stated that some onlookers heard the
alleged UFO make a noise similar to that of helicopters,
although its shape did not correspond at all to the means of
transportation in question.

Researchers from OVNI Merida are currently analyzing the video,
saying that they wish to ascertain if a UFO or a balloon was
involved, moreover because said community manufactures large
"Cantoya"-type balloons surrounded by luminaries. However, and
without dismissing the possibility a priori, we believe that
residents of the town in question can identify one of those
balloons correctly and the sighting would not have been the
cause for such a commotion, one that was even worthy of mention
in the press.

It should be noted that reports of nocturnal UFOs over Mexico
were received on this same date.
