Mexico: Luminous Air Traffic Over Mexico City
MEXICO: LUMINOUS AIR TRAFFIC OVER MEXICO CITY
According to a report received from researcher Alfonso Salazar, at 8:55 a.m. on April 16, 2007, the crew of an airliner flying southeast out of Mexico City reported coming across luminous traffic described as a large, whitish-blue "ball of light". This occurred when the airliner was south of the Mexican capital, flying at an approximate altitude of 7000 meters.
The crew reported that the unidentified flying object was flying from the south toward the north, while the airliner flew from west to east, at a speed comparable to that of airliners. However, the possibility [that it could have been an airplane] was dismissed, as what was observed was a glowing mass, according to Salazar.
This report is added to other similar cases that have taken place in Mexico.
