Case File: Mexico City UFO
Location: Mexico City, Mexico
Date: July 11, 1991
Description: The UFO was described as an unusual metallic object or disc, with three blinking lights. One eyewitness said there was an energy trail behind the disc.
History: On July 11, 1991, the citizens of Mexico City looked to the sky to see a solar eclipse, but instead many people saw a UFO. Guillermo Arragin, a reporter, and James Maussan, a journalist were videotaping the eclipse when they saw the metallic object. When James showed the Arragin footage on a TV show a week later, thousands of people called to say that they had seen a similar object that same day, and several also sent in videotapes of the UFO. Erick Aguilar also claimed to have seen the object while setting up his video camera to film the eclipse. About sixty miles away at the same time, a businessman named Luis Lara videotaped an object almost identical to the one that Erick taped. The Breton family also filmed a similar object eighty miles away. In this video, there was an odd, wave-like disturbance behind the pulsating disc, possibly an energy trail. Despite being one hundred miles apart, the objects in the videos were very similar. Then, two months later, another sighting of UFOs in Mexico occured during a military air show.
Then, a year later, there were similar UFO sightings at the same air show. There have been thousands of sightings of UFOs in Mexico since July of 1991, by teachers, doctors, bus drivers, and even school children. To this day, nobody can explain the rash of UFO sightings in Mexico.
Background: Mexico City is the most populated city and the capital of Mexico. The solar eclipse on July 11, 1991, occured from the Pacific Ocean to Brazil, passing over Hawaii, Mexico, Central America, and South America.
Extra Notes: The case was featured as a part of the October 28, 1994 episode.
