Alleged UFO Over Motul
A red dot is seen to move in the sky in a sequence of photos
A light supposedly originating from an unidentified flying object was discovered on the night of the celebrations of Our Lady of Candelaria by two women who were taking an evening constitutional in the city of Motul.
The sky was clear and the moon was unclouded. The time was 11:00 p.m. when Lucy Aracely Bacelis Castro and her cousin Margely Bacelis Escalante went outside to enjoy the breeze. After being on the street for a while, Aracely looked skyward and was startled by a very bright moon. "Why don't you take a photo of it?" suggested Margely. Aracely took out her cell phone and trained it on the heavenly body, but upon seeing the image onscreen, she was startled to see a red light on the moon. Intrigued by this, she took other photos and the red dot was in all of them.
"The sequence shows that the object is moving," claims Aracely, who would like to find out what the light in question happened to be. "A cousin says that the dot is a galactic stone (sic) that appears every 18 years, but could it be possible that 18 years just happened to roll around on that exact day?"
The women are interested in contacting Jaime Maussan, a journalist who researches the UFO phenomenon, to dispel their doubts. "It's interesting that this should have happened to us," they say. However, others who have seen the photos have expressed their apprehension. "I don't know what it means, but I don't like it one bit," says Guadalupe Escalante. "I'm somewhat surprised. If they're really extraterrestrials, I hope they go away," she added.
During the months of June, July and August last year, UFO watchers were pleased by the alleged manifestation of lights in the sky which could be seen from different directions in Ticul, in the southern end of the state.
