Costa Rica: UFO Over Grecia

Perhaps they came down to Earth to see the All-Star Game at Yankee Stadium over in the Big Apple, but when the game went into extra innings, they decided to take a trip to Tiquicia.

So it was that on Tuesday, at around 10:00 pm, beings from another planet flew at full throttle over the nation's skies and stopped for a moment upon reaching Grecia, just in time for Ricardo Nunez and his neighbor to draw their video cameras and record the UFO that swung over their heads.

"I saw a very bright light in the horizon. The light began to get closer. I saw it wasn't a plane, as it lacked the corresponding lights. That's when I summoned my neighbor...the light got even closer and we recorded it with his video camera," said Nunez, who is still shaken.

After the event, this resident of Invu Dos in Grecia, Alajuela, went off searching for books on UFOs to see if what he had seen was indeed a visitor from another planet.

The owner of the camcorder was also very excited by what he had seen. "It floated in the air in a circular fashion. Its center was illuminated. My neighbor told me and I took out the camcorder. We felt that it was something out of the ordinary. It looked like a nut seed."
