The 1991 Solar Eclipse Videos Taken over Mexico

UFOs over Mexico
Published: 6:35 PM 1/28/2012

On July 11, 1991, a total solar eclipse was visible from Hawaii and Mexico. Some of Ufology's best, yet controversial videos were taken by the citizens of Mexico.

The objects in questions have been explained away by debunkers as the planet Venus or Jupiter, or other misidentified conventional flying craft.

Take a look at the evidence and see if you think that the objects in question were in fact, a planet, comet, or other atmospheric phenomena. The majority of video taken over Mexico was recorded using video cameras which were generally available to the public at the time, videocassette (VHS) camcorders.

Shortly after 1:00 PM, the eclipse began. Hundreds of camcorders and cameras were ready to document the event. As some of the waiting cameramen scanned the sky, something unrelated to the eclipse caught their eye in the darkening sky; at first the object appeared to be a small, shining star-like object.

As all eyes watched the skies, a number of videographers captured the unknown object/objects. An initial investigation into the footage taken during the eclipse listed as many as 17 different videos taken.

Researcher Jaime Maussan and others presented much of the footage on a primetime television special. Appeals were made to anyone who might possess other footage of the events of the eclipse to come forward.

Not only was this footage brought forward, but video and photographs of other UFO events were also submitted for analysis.

The entire country of Mexico and the world at large was now aware of the UFO phenomena, and more and more cameras were trained on the skies.
