On March 5, while conducting anti-drug trafficking surveillance flights, pilots in the Mexican Air Force saw and captured on video a series of brightly lit, fast-moving objects flying over Campeche in the Yucatan peninsula. The objects were decteced via radar and through the use of infrared equipment. The video, released only this week, has caused quite a stir in the UFO community. Many theories as to the objects' orgins abound.
Charles R. Smith, reporting for NewsMax.com(1), believes the objects are a new type of stealth aircraft. Nuclear science researcher Julio Herrera thinks the lights could be electrical flashes emitted spontaneously by the atmosphere -- ball lightning. UFO specialist Jaime Maussan said the video footage is proof that flying saucers really do exist.
