Proof of UFO's? - 05/13/04 04:39 PM

Journalist Jaime Maussan held a news conference yesterday in which he released a video showing 11 UFO's. The video was taken by the Mexican Air Force with an infrared camera.

"They were invisible to the eye but they were there, there is no doubt about it. They had mass, they had energy and they were moving about," Maussan said after showing the 15 minute film. The Defense Ministry gave him permission to show the film.

Also on the video was an interview with the pilots, "There was a moment when ... the screens showed they were behind us, to the left and in front of us. It was at that point that I felt a bit tense," said Maj. Magdaleno Castanon.

What do you know, they've already blamed it on the weather:

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) -- A cluster of mysterious objects that surrounded a Mexican Air Force plane, alarming the pilots and sparking a UFO scare, could be a weather phenomenon known as ball lightning, a scientist said on Friday.

The pilots grew nervous during a routine drugs surveillance flight in March when their radar detected strange objects flying nearby and an infrared camera showed 11 blobs of light, invisible to the eye, hovering or darting about their plane.

Mexico's Air Force this week released footage from the infrared camera that was shown widely on television.

As Mexican and international media published photographs of the objects, UFO Web sites saw the case as possible evidence of a new sighting of some form of extraterrestrial life.

But nuclear science researcher Julio Herrera said the blobs of light may have been nothing more than ball lightning -- glowing spheres that are little understood but often sighted near the ground during thunderstorms.

"Just as you have lightning between clouds and ground, you can also have it within the clouds and sometimes ball lightning can develop. I feel this is one of these rare events," said Herrera, based at Mexico's National Autonomous University.

"It's a very rare atmospheric phenomenon and it would be very interesting to be able to analyze all the information these pilots obtained," he told Reuters.

UFO follower Jaime Maussan said on Tuesday the objects seemed "intelligent" after they turned around to surround the plane chasing them -- but Herrera said electrical discharges in ball lightning could have been attracted to the plane as a conductor.

I am partial to swamp gas released causing an odd weather event making air look reflective like metal. Yea. That is a good one too.

Honestly that sounds more reasonable and pursuable then invisible extraterrestrial aircrafts. Only a bigot would believe in such things.

swamp gas in itself is really really weird. I have watched shows on swamp gas and its patterns of movement into towns and such. Just eerie for some reason.

They're here! everybody run!

Or something like that =/
The weather phenomenon seems more realistic then the other "blown up" story=| It's now fun when they make so much of so little, though i didn't see the thing but anyway.
More serious UFO news from ppl out there :p
