Mexico: An Alleged Flying Humanoid (2008)
By Ana Luisa Cid

Lic. Daniel Sanchez Rosales, a resident of Mexico City, recorded
an unidentified flying object that he describes as having
humanoid characteristics.

The video was taken on February 28 of this year in the Moctezuma
district, no far from Mexico City International Airport, at 6:50

It should be mentioned that the first one to see it was his
nephew Quique (Erik) as left home toward his middle school. It
was then that he woke his uncle Daniel and they observed the
phenomenon through binoculars, at first. During this observation,
the witnesses described it as "a flying humanoid" resembling an
astronaut. They claimed that it was facing them and it seemed to
survey its surroundings.

As part of this investigation, I visited the household and
interviewed the witnesses. Both seemed like honest people to me,
and are not looking for either fame or fortune, merely a chance
to share their experience. Daniel Sanchez Rosales,36, is a
graduate of the UNAM School of Law.


After reviewing the video with filters, my conclusion is that it
is authentic, but it is still necessary to determine the nature
of what was recorded.

Objectively, we are aware that this could have an explanation:
perhaps a balloon, but there are three aspects that draw our

1. The recording has a 12-minute duation, and if we add to this
the observation time through binoculars, the sighting was around
15 minutes, an uncommon period of time when we deal with
balloons, as these are carried away by the wind, and it is hard
to see them for an extended period of time.

2. At a given point in the video, the object or alleged humanoid
makes descending movements, then remains static for a while and
subsequently rises again. This ascending and descending isn't
quite so common with balloon.

3. At two moments during the recording, the dogs' reaction can be
heard. The appear to be keening or expressing fear. This does not
occur when balloons are involved, unless it is a huge coincidence
(the witness has 2 Labrador Retrievers).

The object remains close to an air corridor. The background
information here is that researcher Alfonso Salazar had reported
the presence of UFOs near MCIA.
