Mexico: The Ramiro Valencia Sighting
By Ana Luisa Cid

A UFO over the Benito Juarez International Airport (MCIA)

Last week we published Alfonso Salazar's report concerning a tubular object that released spheres as it hovered over the runways of Mexico City International Airport.

It was reported at the time that Mr. Ramiro Valencia had video footage of this.

The Interview

Mr. Ramiro, do you live near the airport?

Yes, in the Caracol district.

Had you ever seen anything anomalous before?

Many times. I've spent years watching the skies and making recordings.

What can you tell us about your latest video?

Well, it was a very large "something" that released a sphere. The elongated object is pink in color and the sphere was white. It was visible for a long time, changing shape, exactly above the airport.

Could it be a garland of balloons?

I don't believe so. I've seen those garlands and they're different. For example, balloons tend to rise and do not remain static in the same location, nor do they release spheres. Not long ago they did some tests with garlands but it didn't work. That's another thing. Furthermore, giant balloones are not allowed over the airport.

The video shows the transit of a sphere.

That's right, it went by a few hours later. Perhaps it was expellled by the tubular object. That's a possibility. Sometimes I can record up to four in a single day, I've even see them divide and other smaller ones relased. Why at the airport? I don't know. But it's a fact that this area is attractive to them. They even stop in the air corridors.


The video is very long, and for this reason we selected only a few scenes (NOTE: the video can be seen at

Mr. Ramiro Valencia used a Sony HDR-SR12, 10 megapixels, with a 1.7x zoom. Others, like Martin Valdez and Daniel Sanchez, have recorded similar objects from neighborhoods near the airport.
