Mexico: Spheres over Tepoztlan, Morelos, 11-20-04

On Saturday, November 20, Mr. Salvador Guerrero videotaped four translucent spheres in the town of Tepoztlán, state of Morelos. He was in the company of Amado Márquez and Eduardo Ortega engaged in routine skywatching. The aforementioned gentlemen are renowned UFO watchers and have provided extraordinary evidence since 1991.

At approximately 4:45 p.m., the team became aware of a strange sphere (the size of a pingpong ball) almost at ground level, and they approached it to record evidence, making three videotapes with different cameras. Subsequently, the object headed for a tree bough and remained surprisingly motionless, then moving up and down with intelligent movement, according to Salvador Guerrero. At one point [the object] was very close to his own body, scant centimeters away, and it was then that he reached out to touch it. Upon contact with his skin, the sphere emitted a gelatinous fluid that caused burning and discomfort to the witness, leaving a red mark on his flesh.

A total of four spheres were observed at approximate intervals of 5 minutes between each sighting.

The translucent structure can be clearly seen in the video, as well as how they reflected sunlight, their unusual movement and the confusion of the witnesses, since a group of boy scouts, children and schoolteachers at the Escuela Meztitla field had joined the threesome.

Prof. Ana Luisa Cid Fernandez has been in contact with Salvador Guerrero, who still reports discomfort to his hand. He has been advised to see a physician to ameliorate the symptoms and obtain a diagnosis as to what happened to his skin. Guerrero had recorded similar phenomena before, but had never touched it.

As additional data, it is worth noting that soap bubbles are sold in this country, as well as unbreakable bubbles. However, these have no resemblance whatsoever with the Tepoztlán spheres, neither in structure nor in motion.

The video was presented today on the "Los Vigilantes" program. It will also be shown next Thursday on The Omar Chaparro Show and Sunday on "Los Grandes Misterios de Tercer Milenio" (
