An important sighting was recorded by professional cameramen from Televisa in Mexico City on January 9, 2005, as a UFO flew over the Plaza Mexico bullring between 5:45 and 6:00 pm.
On that same day, Mexican researcher Pedro Avila Rubio obtained impressive video evidence of apparently the very same unidentified flying object at an altitude of 4000 meters over the municipality of Tlalnepantla in the state of Mexico at 3:45 p.m.
The witness described it as a sphere with protuberances in its lower side--making the analogy of a pea with corrugated edges-- which was precisely in the San Mateo air corridor, adding that no aircraft appeared during the recording.
The strange flying object flew slowly in a north-south direction and the sky was completely clear.
This is highly significant eveidence, since it completely discards the possibility of viewer error and that a weather balloon could be mistaken for a UFO. It is my belief that Pedro Avila is the first person to have obtained video evidence of what occurred on January 9 -- a result of his perseverance and experience in scanning the skies.
Avila heads the "Los Ojos de la Ciudad" group, which is an organization specializing in UFO studies and well-known for the quality of its investigations.
