Mexico: UFO Sighting Causes Excitement in Tamaulipas
Matamoros, Tamaulipas (El Mañana newspaper) - The rumor that two Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) were in the vicinity of Matamoros's Niños Heroes Lake caused residents of the frontier community to turn their eyes skyward, where several witnesses claim having seen two levitating white dots.
The information was spread through the media yesterday around two o'clock in the afternoon; dozens of citizens of Matamoros could be seen on their rooftops, scanning the skies toward the East.
A phone call from the public to Fructuoso Sánz news broadcast "La noticia tal y como es", transmitted on W 1420 AM and W FM 97.7, reported the sighting, which had already captured the attention of workers, students and homemakers located in that section of the city.
The objects were described as flying saucers with intermittent movement, although there were those who state that at first there was an additional object that disappeared in a short while.
"They can't be seen anymore, but the watchman tells me that he saw three: first they were traveling together - two stayed to the north while the remaining one took off toward the south."
The foregoing was part of an IM conversation between an employee of "El Mañana" and a relative located closer to Colonia Aurora, where the report emerged from. According to various accounts, the UFOs drifted in the sky for several minutes at a distance that was hard to determine due to the intensity of the sun's rays. From the second floor of this morning newspaper, the staff was able to witness a white dot that went up and down quickly. In a moment it descended to the point that it could no longer be seen on account of the tree foliage.
Other reports state that a further sighting took place in the morning, but heading toward Colonia Seccion 16, at around one o'clock in the morning.
