UFO Turns Out To Be A Balloon?

Carlos Uicab Sulu never thought that keeping a religious promise
to the Child of Atocha would cause such a sensation and wonder
in Merida.

The promise consisted in launching a balloon into the sky, which
was observed by several citizens of Merida, some of whom
videotaped and photographed the balloon, not knowing what it

As we reporterd yesterday, the sighting of a strange light that
caused curiosity among many people was recorded on Saturday.

Uicab Sulu promise to launch a balloon in the saintís honor, and
took advantage of a novena held in a house of the San Jose
Vergel district. The balloon was raised aloft by a diesel flame
and was adorned with luminaries.

Comment from Ana Luisa Cid: Merida researchers have not
confirmed this news item. However it is feasible that the case
may have been an error of perception on the part of the
eyewitnesses, who mistook a balloon for a UFO.
