Water on Mars

Craft Over Venezuela

This week's Files report: Admiral Hellencotter claims UFOs are interplanetary devices, NASA Scientists Confirm Mars Has Water, Eygpt God Amun has Elongated Skull, Colorado Man Shows 'Proof' Of Alien Visitors

Unidentified Aerial Phenomena were spotted over: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, Pennsylvani, Rhode Island, and Washington.

UFOs were also seen in Australia, Canada, Peru, Venezuela, and the UK.

These Files assume that extraterrestrial intelligent life not only exists, but my hypothesis is that the over one hundred UFOs reported each week represent technologically advanced spacecraft conducting surveillance of Earth. These Files assume that extraterrestrial intelligent life not only exists, but my hypothesis is that the over one hundred UFOs reported each week represent technologically advanced spacecraft conducting surveillance of Earth. I personally became interested in UFOs when I chased one over England when flying for the US Air Force. I've been investigating them ever since. The US Air Force under Project Blue Book investigated UFOs for more than twenty years, we continue this research. It is my belief that God has spread intelligent civilizations throughout the universe.

UFOs Are Interplanetary Devices

Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter, was the third Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) from 1947 to 1950, and the first Director of the CIA, which was established in September 1947.

Hillenkoetter was one of the first intelligence chiefs to make public his conviction that UFO's were real."

Hellenkoetter sent a letter to Major Keyoe and to Congress on 22 August 1960 stating,

"Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force offficers are soberly concerned about the UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nosense." He also charged that 'to hide the facts, the Air Force silenced its personnel' through the issuance of a regulation. 'I urge immmediate Congressional action to reduce the dangers from secrecy about Unidentified Flying Objcts,' he continued. "Two dangers are steadily increasing: 1. The risk of an accidental war from mistaking UFO formations for a surprise Soviet attac. 2. The danger that the Soviet Government may, in a critical moment, falsely claim the UFOs are a secret Russian weapons against which are defenses are helpless."Thanks to Timothy Good from his new book, "Need to Know"

NASA Scientists Confirm Mars Has Water

For the last ten years these files have claimed there is water and life on Mars. Nasa scientists have revealed that the Phoenix Mars Lander has sent back the first definitive proof that there is water ice hidden beneath the surface of the planet.

NASA reports twenty days of scratching its way through the Martian top soil, the spacecraft uncovered a bright white layer just two inches below the surface. Four days after the white layer was first exposed to sunlight above, photographs taken by the lander's on board camera showed the white surface had disappeared. This proves, the scientists say, that the white layer was not salt as had been previously thought possible because it was melting. "It is with great pride and a lot of joy that I announce that we have found proof that this hard bright material is really water ice and not some other substance," said Peter Smith, from the University of Arizona, who is the principal investigator on the Phoenix mission. "We have found the proof that we've been seeking."

Chemical analysis of soil containing the white layer are still to be completed, but there is no doubt in the minds of Nasa scientists that they will further confirm the presence of water. Water generally means there is life as discovered by the Viking Lander in 1976

John E. Combest writes, "This inquiry is directed to Mr. Peter Smith, Principal Investigator and Project Leadership, Phoenix Mars Mission

Dear Sir:

Over the past five years I have spent many hours studying photographs made available through NASA of the various Mars missions, and I have just this day reviewed all the photos posted at the web site, Phoenix Mars Mission - Gallery - Images for SOL 13 for June 8, 2008, that include possible artifacts..

I have observed a striking contrast in the quality of photos made available to the public from those two missions - as follows:

1. The 36 landscape photos from SOL 13 for June 8, 2008 are all relatively low-pixel-count photos - all of which seem to be slightly out-of-focus, and those which I have downloaded have all been available in JPEG only - which lend themselves to only a small degree of enlargement at which point "pixilation" effects take over and render the scene useless for any kind of meaningful study. Further, are only black-and-white images available from the lander, or are there color photos available elsewhere?

2. Most of the photos posted to the NASA web site for the 1976 Viking missions are of strikingly good quality, and are available in both TIFF and GIFF formats, and all seem to have been focused very well. Sections of most of those photos can be enlarged as much as 10X and still show fine detail of the items of interest with no pixilation effects at any level of magnification. And many of the photographs taken by the landers - and all the photos taken by the orbiters - are in good color (albeit modified before release to make most everything have a rust-brown color to it (even the sky).

3. QUESTION: How does it happen that - after 32 years of improvement in every aspect of imaging techniques and associated electronics - the photos of Mars from the Phoenix Mission made available to the public are of such lesser quality and usefulness? Are better quality photos to be made available as the Phoenix mission develops?

Your assistance in this area of inquiry is appreciated. Thanks to John E. Combest

Ken Pfeifer writes, "I have been looking over the new mars photos and they are very clear. I found one with something unusual. See for your self. You may have to download the photo from the web site for a close and clear view. Tell me what you's the Noctis Labaringth area. Page 4 or 5 of the mars photos.

Egypt God Amun has Elongated Skull

Amun from Karnak

One of the important gods in the Egyptian pantheon whose temple at Karnak (the best surviving religious complex of the New Kingdom) was a primordial Egyptian space god, whose name means "the hidden one". As the driving force of the invisible breeze he was originally a god of wind and ruler of the air. During the 11th dynasty (2133 - 2000 BCE) he became the powerful sun-god of Thebes, where he was worshipped as Amun-Re. Later he was made the supreme god of the entire realm and king of the gods. Originally a local god of Thebes. He was usually represented as a human figure wearing a double- plumed crown, sometimes with a ram's head. Note this god has an elongated head indicating an alien skull.

John Combest writes, "Pyramids Are Evidence of Advanced Technology" points out the physical impossibility that the Egyptians (or any other group of humans for that matter) could have built the Great Pyramid. I had some time ago made the observation that - if the Egyptians did build the Great Pyramid - why are there no murals at all showing them building the pyramids? Every other facet of Egyptian life appears in a mural somewhere - but there are no scenes showing the building of the pyramids. Case closed.

Colorado - Man Shows 'Proof' Of Alien Visitors

DENVER - Stan Romanek and Jeff Pekman on the Larry King TV Show claiming they have video of an alien. A man who is pushing to create a task force to deal with space aliens said he has proof they exist and showed the video to the media Friday morning. Denver resident Jeff Peckman believes the video is "irrefutable evidence" of alien visitation. The grainy, black and white video he showed was shot by Stan Romanek in Nebraska in July 2003. Romanek said in a film clip that he thought there might have been a peeping tom peering through his window, spying on his two teenage daughters, so he grabbed a video camera and started recording. The bald, whitish "being" with an elliptical head and big black eyes is seen in the video peering just over a windowsill, blinking, looking around and then going down, out of view. The creature raised its head several times but no other parts of its body is seen.

"It does have somewhat of an ET appearance as I recall, but the skin was much more smooth, not these deep old wrinkles. (It was ) very gentle looking, benevolent, kind of had a soft appearance to it," said Peckman, describing the video.

News crews were told to turn their cameras away so no video of the "being" can be shown in public until the film can be analyzed. The video clip will be included in an upcoming documentary but first has to be looked at by experts to confirm that it was not doctored.

Jerry Hufmann, a professional video producer and an instructor at Colorado Film School, said he believes that the alien video had not been altered in any way. Alejandro Rojas, education director of the Mutual UFO Network, said the creature did not look like a puppet and Romanek does not have the ability or motivation to fabricate a hoax. Peckman said extraterrestrials have visited earth frequently and the close encounters have been covered up by the U.S. government."According to one report, there are as many as 57 species, that have been documented by our own government, that have visited our planet," Peckman said.

Peckman is spearheading a Denver ballot initiative to create an 18-member Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission that would form a strategy "dealing with issues related to the presence of extraterrestrial beings on Earth" and how humans and aliens can peacefully coexist. The 54-year-old needs 4,000 signatures to get the proposal on the ballot. The commission would cost $75,000 to form and maintain, Peckman said. "We believe that the end result of all this information will ultimately lead to a higher quality of life, a cleaner planet, the availability of technology that will help us in multiple areas," Peckman said. In the case of extraterrestrial contact, the United States government would be the governing authority, superseding local authorities, so it's not known what the city commission would accomplish. However, Peckman believes that the U.S. government is not doing enough. Peckman sponsored a 2003 initiative that would require the city to implement stress-reduction techniques. That idea didn't garner enough support from voters. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Arizona - An Aircraft Cloaking Itself Witnessed

PHOENIX -- On June 11, 2008, 5:45 PM,. I was in my back yard with my two dogs. The day was warm with a clear blue, cloudless sky. I looked up at the moon in the southern sky and I noticed a white jet, a 747 type flying next to the moon. I kept my eyes on it because I was wondering how high he was flying. All of a sudden the jet blinked out right before my eyes. It just wasn't there anymore. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

California - Disk

SACRAMENTO - On June 6, 2008, we were driving to San Francisco and we had just passed a power plant and looking over rolling hills I saw something shiny, which I thought might be the sun reflecting on a plane, but it was far too bright. I thought it was a plane because of the shape, but then I realized it had no wings, so I was confused. Before I could say anything and in the blink of an eye it disappeared. Again I stared in shock and searched the sky, knowing a plane couldn't move that fast to get out of my line of sight in the blink of an eye. So then I realized what I had just seen. A friend of mine took my description and searched, finding this video for me to see and it's exactly what I had seen. Whether it was the same craft? I don't know. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

DEATH VALLEY NATIONAL PARK -- I saw a strange, green, round light over Death Valley on June 20, 2008, at 11:53 PM PDT. It was going back and forth across the sky. White lights lit up around it and it took off. It was headed west and I was headed north. Comments: The witness made some nice sketches, but the report is quite brief. The sequence of events is unclear. (Did the object land and then take off or did it take off and fly erratically?) Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

Florida - Cylinder

PORT CHARLOTTE HARBOR -- On June 2, 2008, at 10:31 PM while fishing in Charlotte Harbor we observed an object in the sky. I was fishing with two other men, no drinking of alcohol. One man noticed the object and then I noticed it and said, "That plane looks strange; it looks like its flying backwards." Then we all three seemed to notice that it seemed strange so I reached for my binoculars and looked up again and it was completely gone. I am a retired Police Detective, and served 4 years in the Air force, one of the other men was a retired business man and the third was currently employed by a large conglomerate. The sky was clear, blue. There were no clouds although a squall had just passed about five minutes earlier. The duration of the sighting was for three minutes when it just disappeared in a clear sky. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

TAVARES - I live in Lake County and I just witnessed the most incredible and startling activity of hovering aircrafton on June 22, 2008, that changed colors from red to white and even a blue then green transformation. It lasted for about an hour and there were several craft that moved extremely fast and low in all different directions over our neighborhood. It started at approximately 9:50 PM on June 22nd. It was the most real UFO sighting that I have ever witnessed. I do not have a photo.

Comments: The witnesses saw lights for a considerable time period. The lights hovered at times and moved very fast. Given limited data I have no explanation for what was sighted. Perhaps with more witnesses and data an explanation could be found. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

Georgia - Cigar

SUWANNEE -- I saw an object that was cigar shaped that had no contrail and no wings on June 6, 2008, 8:20 PM. It was silver in color or metallic and came in from the west and headed east. It never changed directions. The speed remained the same. I was at a Jazz concert so several people saw it. It also remained a cigar shape. There was no sound with the object. No aura or haze seen. No lights. It did reflect the sunlight off it. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Illinois - Flying Triangle

CHICAGO -- On June 4, 2008, 9:14 PM, I heard a jet fighter over Chicago and accelerate overhead. A fighter jet in Chicago and no air shows anytime soon... this may help if there was another report. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

CHICAGO -- On June 4, 2008, I was having a sleep over at midnight when a flying triangle flew right over my house. I don't know how many people were outside who also saw it. I saw it from my window as I heard a swift quite low sound from outside. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

NORTHLAKE -- On June 5, 2008, at 9:14 PM, I was outside watching my son play in his new wading pool, and taking pictures of him playing. Since we live near O'Hare airport, I naturally always snap photos of the planes taking off from the airport. I snapped three photos of three different planes about 8-10 minutes apart. When I went to uploaded them into my computer, I noticed that the first picture had these strange cigar shaped objects around the plane. I immediately checked the other pictures, they were clear and there were no objects on any of the photos. I checked my camera and even checked to see if there was debris on the lens, there was none. All my other pictures of planes were all clear and did not have anything on them. That is why I decided to submit the report and the picture to you. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Iowa Photo

CLINTON -- Object was filmed above a truck window. I was driving thru town on June 22, 2008, noticed the clouds around the sun turned rainbowish, took a few pictures of the sun, then took a few more of the scenery. Upon developing the picture, I noticed a silver triangle type object in the top right. When zoomed in, the object appears to have three balls of light on the bottom. Not sure if it is dust from the windshield, but it seems to be catching the light from the sun. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Missouri - Triangle

COLUMBIA -- Two bright headlights in the sky caught my attention so I pulled over onto the shoulder of the road to get a better look. It flew over me and I saw three yellow lights on the bottom in the shape of a triangle. The back had a straight line of red and green flashing lights. My cell phone was losing connection while it was overhead. The entire duration of the sighting was two minutes. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Michigan - Lights Over Eagle Lake

EDWARDSBURG -- On June 6, 2008, 9:45 PM, slow moving metallic balloon shaped objects with burning red undersides were seen for two hours. This was the second time in three days they were witnessed. One quickly moved across the sky another one transformed to a triangular shape and appeared to drop from the sky with lights off. I witnessed the objects for half an hour. The neighbor on the other side of lake witnessed very eerie high pitched screeching sounds outside his front door.

New Jersey - Diamond Orange Colored UFO

ROCKAWAY -- I am writing this for my parents. The sighting took place in New Jersey, on a 4th story balcony facing toward Pennsylvania during the sunset on June 11, 2008, about 8:30 PM. My dad saw a very narrow, diamond shaped orange object that was eclipse like in brightness. It was very low in the western sky and was very large, say 1 inch long equivalent to (10 - 15 airliners stacked on top of each other). He called my mom over to ask what she thought it was. They continued to watch it for about 15 minutes, when it suddenly disappeared. It happened abruptly, only my mom saw it because my dad turned away to pick up the phone to call me. My mom used the term "melted away", but has described it more like suddenly shrinking or maybe moving away from them quickly, very quickly. My parents are in their late fifties, both are skeptics. Thanks Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research

MIDDLETOWN - I was laying on my roof top hammock on June 1, 2008, when I witnessed a dark black object heading due north at a speed no aircraft could match at 2 PM. I timed it at two minutes before it disappeared. There were no lights and no sound. I would say the altitude was in-between 15,000 and 20,000 feet because the cloud levels were above that and it was below the layers of clouds. It was a black sphere with no lights headed north. Wind was 25 to 35 gusting west. It couldn't have been a balloon because it didn't track with the wind. Duration: 2 Minutes Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

MILLVILLE - On June 2, 2008, at 10:31 PM, for ten seconds I observed a triangular flying object with three red lights on each point. It flew straight across the sky very fast than it was gone. It made a loud sound. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Rhode Island - Huge Cigar UFO

CHARLESTOWN / SOUTH KINGSTOWN -- My friend and his dad were working building a fireplace and about 9:00 PM, were standing sipping their beer, when suddenly the entire sky above them filled with this huge cigar shaped craft, with lights and windows all around it. My friend said it just sat there quietly, making no noise what-so-ever. My friend said he shined his flashlight up at it and immediately it shot down a return beam of light on the deck where they stood.

He said to his dad - "Wohhh - what the heck was that dad?" He said it sat there for a few more minutes and then - blip - gone! - I said gone! The next night when I got there he said, "well, of all nights for you not to show up, boy did you miss it last night and told me the story." United Nuclear facility is located nearby. I called my friend to confirm that it did happen, just as I've described.

Pennsylvania - Red Glowing Craft

My 12-year-old daughter was up talking on the phone to a friend and looking out her bedroom window (facing south) at the moon when a red-glowing, pulsing craft came into view instantly to the right over a wooded valley in front of our house. It had a row of white lights along the lower edge that raced one at a time to the right, and then traveled back again, repeating. The whole craft glowed red that got brighter then dimmer. It moved slowly just above the tree line until it was directly in front of her window where it hovered silently. It moved slightly, and was not stationary for several more seconds. It did this light show several times before moving off quickly to the east. Her boyfriend on the phone told her as she described it that it must be a UFO because planes etc. don't do that. He then looked out his own window (about 5 miles away) in our direction and said he saw seven red dots all traveling in a group, he got scared and ducked.

NOTE: We've joked that our row of solar LED garden lights (PHOTO ATTACHED) that randomly pulse colors of green, red, blue that are lining our garden wall in a half circle about 25-30 feet in length might signal a UFO - perhaps they might think one of theirs is in distress... Perhaps it works! We're considering setting up a motion camera to catch one on film. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Washington - UFO Engaged Military Aircraft

SPANAWAY LAKE PARK - The witness reported that at 4:15 PM on Monday, June 16, 2008, he saw a spherical-craft that was "reflective," and as almost "chrome-like." It had a "subtle, horizontal band around the middle of the object," which- was clearly visible during the sighting. The eyewitness estimated that the UFO was approximately at a mile in altitude. He compared the size of the spherical craft to a BB held at arm's length. The target was headed in a southeasterly direction before it vanished. The eyewitness reports, "It disappeared after about 10 seconds of being pursued by McChord Air Force Base jet fighters. It did not change direction, but just suddenly disappeared. Nobody else seemed to notice, they were too busy swimming and frolicking." Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Thanks to Christopher Montgomery Executive Director UFORC International Global Network,

Washington, DC - Woman Sees Airborne Silver Ball

D.C. -- On June 12, 2008, at 9:20 AM, the witness saw an airborne silver ball flying quite high in the sky. The object was sighted to the South-Southwest. She said that the object moved towards the west and then back to its original location.

Additional Information Provided by Witness: In a follow-up phone call the witness stated that the object was close to a commercial airliner. The object was quite small, but the witness said that she could determine that it was shaped like a ball and of silver color. The object eventually just disappeared.

Comments: The explanation for this sighting cannot be made given available information. Sometimes conventional aircraft flying at a long distance from the observer can appear as a silver ball. However, given that the object returned to its original location makes a conventional aircraft a less likely explanation. Thanks to William Puckett UFOS Northwest

Australia - UFO Photos

I just went to take a photo of the sky light on June 26, 2008, [easterly position] as the sun was coming up, but still a while to go. My camera flashed and I thought I got a star in the photo. I snapped another and then looked at it inside; there was an object on both of the photos. One closer than the other. I went back outside on the deck, but nothing was in the sky. I have attached photos and one enlargement. Thanks to MUFON CMS and Carol Pappas.

Canada - Green Ball of Light With a Tail

KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- My husband was awake around 2:30 AM, on June 14, 2008, when he looked out our bedroom window which faces southwest when he saw a green ball cross the sky going from west to east. At first he thought someone was lighting fireworks because of the green color but the object didn't fall to the ground, it went straight across the sky and disappeared. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research,

Peru -- Alleged UFOs Photographed

CHACHAPOYAS - INEXPLICATA The Journal of Hispanic Ufology reports, "Town residents and tourists alike gathered to witness the celebration of the Raymillacta in the city of Chachapoyas and realized they were not alone. Two visitors in the sky went unnoticed, or so they thought. While video cameras, digital cameras and cell phones moved throughout the Plaza Mayor of the city to capture the best angle of the celebration, an enthusiast recorded images of a different nature.

According to a blog kept by journalist Manuel Cabanas Lopez, Nicolas Ruiz took eight photographs in the afternoon of June 7, 2008. Reviewing them on his computer, his attention was drawn to one of them: it showed two glowing objects that stood out in the skies over Chachapoyas.

Upon enlarging the photo, it was possible to see the presence of two objects that did not agree with the blue heavens that afternoon. The blogger notes that these strange objects could be classified as UFOs as they cannot be identified -- this is due to the fact that the area has no air traffic whatsoever.

This would not be the first case. Approximately one month earlier, Manolo Valdez Santillan photographed two strange objects flying over the city. These photos were published in the "Trome" newspaper on May 30 (2008). Asunta Huaman and hundreds escorting the Virgin in a procession witnessed three objects flying north to south. On June 6, amid the main ceremony honoring the battle of Higos-Urco, a strange object suspended in the sky for five minutes was seen by the entire population.

UK/Scotland - Police Officers' Sighting in UFO Reports

KINGUSSIE - Scottish Provincial Press Ltd. reports, "Memories of strange objects seen in the skies above the Strath have been reawakened by the release of thousands of Government 'X-Files' reports. The Government has made public 5,000 files from the National Archives on UFO reports across Britain made between 1979 and 1987 to dispel conspiracies of cover-ups of flying saucers and aliens.

The first batch of files to be released includes a report by two Kingussie policemen who spotted a massive "platinum-white" sphere in the sky during a routine patrol on the A889 between Dalwhinnie and Laggan on Hogmanay in 1984. Constables Donald MacLeod and Alasdair MacDonald were amazed to see the giant orb in the sky to the north of them. "It was about the size of a football on our windscreen, but the bottom of it was hidden by the hills in front, so it was far away," recalled Constable MacDonald, who is now based in Dingwall.

"Donald and I watched it for a couple of minutes, thinking, 'What the hell is this?' It just wasn't natural. I think I put in the report that it was magnesium white, and then it sort of imploded; it shrunk down in size until it disappeared.

"It wasn't hidden by clouds, but we were asking each other if they had seen it too, and we were both positive we had, so we decided to report it to Inverness.

"It was off to the north of us, so we thought people in Inverness would have been able to see it too, but there were no other reports."

Constable MacDonald, who was based in Kingussie from 1981 to 1985, stands by his story, despite immediate skepticism on the part of staff at Northern Constabulary headquarters in Inverness. He said: "I have never heard anything official about it since, but we knew what we saw and we thought it should be reported." He is still happy to discuss his not-so-close encounter with the UFO, and regularly tells colleagues of the strange sighting. "In fact, I was chatting to colleagues about it a couple of days ago, and a few others mentioned they had seen things like that they couldn't explain but not everybody reports it," he said. "I know it happened on Hogmanay, but we were both on duty and sober. In fact, I don't drink at all, so that rules out one explanation people come out with. "It wasn't covered by clouds and it wasn't the moon. No one knows what it was."

RAF KINLOSS -- Another sighting revealed in the records happened just over two months earlier when staff in the operations room at RAF Kinloss Air Base were told of a 50-feet-long "orange-yellow flame", four feet across, seen by witnesses at Tomintoul as it descended towards Grantown.

Around the same period, delivery driver Clement Muir, of Duke Street, Kingussie, reported seeing a saucer-shaped craft with an orange light on top as he drove along the old A9. "I only saw it because the car in front had stopped and the people were pointing into the sky," he said. "It was a grey, round thing with an orange dome on top."

We watched it for a few seconds and then it shot off at some speed. "I told my boss about and he phoned the papers to tell them about it and then I started getting calls from all sorts of people asking for details." "I don't think any of them were from the Government or the Army or police, just journalists, but I didn't want to talk about it."Folk didn't believe me so I'm glad I'm not the only one who saw something like this. I never really talk about it these days." Mulders and Scullys wanting to wade through Britain's very own "X-Files" can see them at and anyone can file an alien abduction report with - providing, of course, that they have had their own close encounter with extra-terrestrial life. copyright 2008, Published: 21 May, Scottish Provincial Press Ltd.

Venezuela - Sergeant Takes This Photo

LA ZORRA BEACH -- On April 9, 2008, a sergeant of the Venezuelan Armed Forces (name on file) photographed a group of children who were in the vicinity of the Caney del Chivo restaurant in the locality of La Zorra, Estado Vargas, capturing an image of anUFO. The image was taken with a 4 mpix HP digital camera near La Zorra Beach on the Caribbean Sea. It shows the object's body with great clarity. However, it is possible to see two luminous sources of bluish-white light bordering an indefinite, possibly circular surface, and a grey wake that appears to issue from the rear of the object.

According to Kirvic Lopez, who spoke with the author of the photo, nothing out of the ordinary was seen when the image was taken. "He told me there was nothing to be seen when he took the photo, but when he downloaded the images to the computer, he became aware of the "machine" that appeared there," he explained. The photographer is a serious and honest person, and even skeptical. This leads him to dismiss the possibility of a hoax or technique to garner public attention, since he is not even interested in having his identity, or that of the photographed children, made public.

An image analysis performed by Thony Huerta of the DALETH group directed by Mexico's Ing. Leopoldo (Polo) Lazcano found traces of texture, shadow and lighting on the object in question, ratifying that the object did not experience any manipulation whatsoever.

Huerta also dismissed the possibility that an airplane or known aerial craft could be involved due to the size of the object, in comparsion with its lights, and its shape, which appears to be circular or ovoid.
