Mexico: More on the Merida UFO
According to the news item published in Yucatan's "De Peso" newspaper on June 9, 2006, Mexican journalist Ylmar Pacheco captured the transit of a possible UFO over the Yucatan's capital.
Researcher Emilio Cetz reports that the witness managed to see a spherical object flying behind an airplane and did not pay it much attention, because he isn't a fan of the UFO phenomenon. He took a photo nonetheless.
When he downloaded the photos for review, he confirmed that a sphere was indeed present, and decied to submit the material to the newsroom of the "De Peso" newspaper, where a number of theories aimed at explaining the image were put forth.
The same publication left all possibilities open, allowing each reader to draw his or her own conclusions and employing such phrases as: "UFO or Foo Fighter? UFO or atmospheric trick?"
Emilio Cetz has known Ylmar for a long time and says that this is the first time that the photojournalist has had an encounter of this nature.
Personal comment from Ana Luisa Cid:
I have tried to contact Mr. Pacheco to secure more information on the two images published in the Merida newspaper and to date (June 16, 2006) I have obtained no reply. I remain hopeful that contact will be made soon.
The photos shown here have been directly scanned from "De Peso" as we do not have any copies of the originals yet.
Mexican researchers Raul Aleman, Gustavo Aleman and Emilio Cetz have participated in this project, and their valuable cooperation is acknowledged.
