Mexico: Alleged UFO in Chichen Itza

Photo taken on December 18, 2007 by Judith Trujillo, a Mexican national residing in Canada. The witness visited Mexico to see her family, and during a tour of the Chichen Itza archaeological site, she took photos of the Mayan ruins. Only one of those photos displays what could be an unidentified flying object, which was not visible when the shutter was pressed to capture a image of the Kukulkan Pyramid, also known as El Castillo.

Ana Luisa Cid reports that there are two options regarding this image:

1) There was indeed a UFO at the pyramid: If we accept this possibility, we must bear in mind that some researchers have associated these archaeological sites with UFO visitations, based on the premise that pyramids are concentrators of energy, which would be hypothetically essential for these vehicles to travel.

2) An ordinary element out of focus: It is possible that a bird or insect slipped into the photo, appearing blurry by virtue of being out of focus. When focusing on a distant object, elements in the foreground usually become blurred. Judith Trujillo employed an Olympus Digital UD600-S600 at a normal setting and at ISO 64.
