Subject: Follow up on Mexico video

A few more details on the August 6, 1997 video. I made an error in my first
report. The disc is seen moving counterclockwise, not clockwise.

Jim D. has estimated the size at 36 feet in diameter, or larger. He needs
more time to review this video, he has not ruled out a hoax yet. Also we
haven't judged it as real. Its intriging, and interesting. So far its
holding up to the computer tests.

A helicopter towing a saucer shaped blimp is one explantion raised. Although
it seems impossible and probably will be ruled out. Due to the wide angle
shot, with no helicopters in the scene. Also eyewitnesses reported nothing
to this effect.

Another explanation raised is a computer generated image (CGI) It doesn't
appear to be one, but the copy studied is second generation. The original
master would be needed to check the signal strengths to verify this. The
boys present who shot the footage, have not been found yet. Although Jaime
Maussan, within one day located the exact spot it was shot from. He is very
persistant and probably will find the original person responsible for the
footage. He has had this footage for less than a week.

I determined from watching the video,,(in my opinion) this video was shot on
a digital video camera(DVC). I have shot footage with these cameras and
recognized a distinct effect in detail, that VHS, 8mm, SVHS, etc.. can't
preform. The buildings are about 1 mile away and the edges are very sharp
and clear. These camera have a resolution of 500 lines. The original master
could really be blown up for far better detail than a vhs copy.

I have been asked for copies and to post still images of this sighting. I
have no still images or video of it. This is Jamie's and Lee's investigation
and case. Its up to them to disseminate the video as they want. If I did
have them I won't post them anyway. The case is under investigation and I
won't comprimise it in any fashion.

I have no idea when they will air this footage. I doubt any tv news stations
no of it. They take your material broadcast it, then upload to satellites
and every news station rips it off. Then it can't be controlled and could be
taken out of context, debunked in a soundbite and written off. This happened
at CNN after the MNG released their load of crap on the March 13 sightings.

Maybe it will take a couple of weeks or a month to get this on the tube. Or
one year if you call the tv show "Sightings".

Its either the UFO video smoking gun, or one hell of a hoax. I'll make a few
calls and see if a still can be uploaded on the net.
