INEXPLICATA-The Journal of Hispanic Ufology-July 23, 2006 Ana Luisa Cid MEXICO: UFO Photograph Under Investigation
Ana Luisa Cid reports:
July 2006 - This photograph was provided to me on June 10, 2006 by a young man from Tepoztlan (Morelos) who does not wish to disclose his identity.
According to his account, the image was taken last year. He added that the person who took the photo was American and was very excited when the image was captured, believing that it could be a real UFO.
Endeavoring to learn something more about the sighting, I shared the material with some Mexican researchers who informed me that they had no information on this alleged sighting.
According to Tomas Amador and Damian Minaya, there is a man named Rolf Bertschin living in Tepoztlan, who makes artistic composites of this sort.
I have visited Tepoztlan repeatedly trying to find Mr. Bertschin and some additional information, but have not able to obtain any results so far. Therefore, I cannot say with certainty that the photo is authentic, but I also lack the elements to dismiss it altogether.
We know that editing software allows us to make digital montages, not mentioning the use of maquettes and models. However, we should bear in mind that Tepoztlan is a site where UFOs are frequently reported, and its residents speak of the phenomenon as an everyday occurrence.
If the reader has any further information about the case in question, please contact me so that we may clarify the authenticity of the Mexican photograph once and for all.
