      > The city of Chilpancingo (state of Guerrero's) La Cronica Vespertina
      newspaper reported the sighting of an unknown light that landed at
      Cerro Pie de Minas, emitting flashes for over 30 hours and causing
      alarm among the locals.
      >
      > The event took place in the early morning hours of December 31, 2007
      in the town of Mezcala, Guerrero. According to the news report from
      journalist Francisco Rangel, dated January 10, 2008, the phenomenon
      was observed by the entire town, cutting across all ages ranging from
      children to senior citizens and including mining engineers and
      laborers at the Los Filos gold mine.

      > Eyewitness accounts suggest that drivers halted their vehicles all
      the way to the Federal Highway in order to take a look at the intense
      light source that traveled across various parts of the locality at an
      estimated altitude of 300 meters. They describe a saucer-shaped craft
      that passed over the town square slowly and silently before landing on
      a hill known as Pie de Minas, where it emitted flashes for over 30 hours.
      >
      > According to the newspaper story, witnesses to the phenomenon
      complained of eye irritation despite the fact that they saw it at a
      considerable distance. Not only that, but there is also talk of
      fluctuations in the level of electric power in spite of the fact that
      no voltage changes were detected at the electric substation belonging
      to the Comision Federal de Electricidad.
      >
      > Many people took photos and videos with their cameras and
      cellphones, but their recordings were affected and distorted by an
      alleged magnetic force. They added that even the pictures taken with
      analog cameras were overexposed.
      >
      > According to the newspaper article: "The object was seen by most of
      the population, ranging from small children to the elderly and entire
      families, seen at considerable distances by the luminosity that
      affected the eyes of many residents and the fact that the electric
      levels of all the homes dropped whenever the light's intensity
      increased, ranging from a soft shade of light blue to a white and
      phosphorescent blue, acquiring yellow, orange and soft red tones...."
      >
      > Many video recordings exist in spite of this, taken by people who
      managed to record it from their homes at a distance of 4 or 6
      kilometers away. The footage shows a round light, whether white or
      light blue, with strange figures at its core that were described-- by
      those who peered at the object through binoculars – as something
      resembling a cat or a being with horns, causing the greatest degree of
      fear among the locals, rendering them unable to sleep for the two
      following nights. The sighting was not made known beyond the confines
      of the town until the first days of this week, although reports of
      alleged meteorite activity had been received from Amojileca and
      Xochipala on January 1st. Residents of Mezcala say that the inclement
      weather – strong, cold winds – could have been caused by the luminous
      UFO which appeared to have landed on the hill known as Pie de Mina in
      the wilderness known as "La V", from where it was filmed by many
      locals with their diminutive Handycams and who were clearly afraid
      that something awful would happen, or that the vehicle's crew would
      harm them.
      >
      > Alfonso Ramirez Maya, 35, a farmer and board-layer, had a chance to
      film the UFO with his video camera and his daughter's cell phone. He
      showed us the images taken, and those in which the light can be seen
      moving, but with deformations of the images on the cellphone. The
      white light resembles a balloon that changes shape, despite their best
      efforts at remaining steady. The images were obtained from their house
      on Calle Francisco Villa n/n, Colonia Cabeza de Culebra, 5 km from the
      sighting one kilometer distant from the Mexico City – Acapulco Federal
      Highway that passes through Mezcala.
      >
      > Another person who had the opportunity to record a video was Jesus
      Santana Hernandez, who filmed the UFO as it flew over the community,
      but sent the video to Houston so that a relative could make it known
      through a local TV station, since some thought they could profit from
      selling the images. However, the majority of the locals who have the
      evidence are hesitant to disclose it, as they do not wish to earn
      themselves a poor reputation or be dismissed as lunatics.
      >
      > However, they are all willing to discuss the experience after being
      told that an effort is underway to document the sighting, and even
      willing to accompany a research group to the site, as it is a rugged
      terrain filled with rattlesnakes and scorpions. Many of the people
      interviewed, among whom were serious individuals of all ages, youths
      and even children, offered interpretations of the story that agreed
      with one another's regarding the sighting of the light on the hill and
      its transit over the community of Mezcala, further agreeing with the
      fear and consternation they experienced for the 30-hour span in which
      the "flying saucer" was present.
      >
      > Many residents of this community stated that there were several
      occasions in which some people tried to reach the place where the UFO
      touched down. In the night and evening of January first, when up to 20
      or 30 pickup trucks laden with people tried to reach the sight were
      the light could be seen, the light simply went dark. There exists,
      however, the report of a group that came within fifty meters of the
      vessel described as a flying saucer, whose color was similar to that
      of brilliant, galvanized sheet metal, with a whitish or light blue
      light. These people brought with them video and still cameras, but
      their vehicles were left without power, with no electricity and
      stalled engines. Furthermore, camera batteries were inexplicably
      drained despite having been charged, and returned to normal operating
      conditions later on.
      >
      > Bold youths who dared approach the UFO clearly heard two dry,
      metallic sounds emerging from the interior of the alleged craft. This
      spooked them into hiding under their pickup trucks and even made them
      weep like children, as they believed the occupants would emerge to
      seize them. This fear prompted them to flee the site as best they
      could, and they refuse to talk about it.
      >
      > Closer images were obtained from videos taken from the slopes of Pie
      de Mina – one kilometer distant – where the object can be seen as
      larger, resembling a large white circle of encapsulated light. Symbols
      can be made out, and even the shape of a face drawn on a card by
      another witness, having the shape of a feline or a horned being that
      appears to be at the center of the light.
      >
      > To many businessmen in downtown Mezcala, and food vendors who
      witnessed the phenomenon from the early hours of December 31, also saw
      the gathering of people who had set out to see the UFO phenomenon and
      who offered their versions about what it could be. There were many who
      recorded videos or took photos, but after the novelty wore off, they
      became disaffected after making the trip in groups of pickup trucks –
      accompanied by two local sheriffs – without finding anything. To calm
      the populace down, they said [the sighting ] had been caused by the
      clash of high voltage wires that entwined in the strong wind.
      >
      > The owner of a budget store says that sales declined because people
      became frightened, and that Mezcala looked "like a ghost town" as many
      of its residents fled out of fear, believing that harm would befall
      them because the vehicle remained on the hillside, emitting powerful
      flashes skyward even in broad daylight. There are even those who say
      that another light above appeared to blink, as if communicating the
      one below. This made them fear the worst, and contributed to restless
      sleep for two nights.
      >
      > There is much more evidence of the extraordinary event, known as a
      Close Encounter of the 2nd Kind (CE-2), a variety of eyewitness
      accounts from an entire community stricken with terror by the
      tremendous light that lit all of the nearby hills, and even caused the
      city's own electric lights to dwindle, all of this amid strong winds
      and the cold nights of early 2008.
      >
      > In order to reach the landing site of the luminous UFO, it is
      necessary to walk for several hours or reach the site on all-terrain
      vehicles, since there could be evidence of some sort to be found where
      the UFO remained for 30 hours, all the while flashing its lights.
      >
      > It should be noted that the area has various mineral and metal
      deposits, such as uranium, cobalt, gold, silver and copper. [...] A
      more thorough investigation of what appears to be a genuine UFO case
      must be performed, verifying if there were any traces left behind at
      Pie de Minas hill, in the "La V" wilderness of the community of
      Mezcala, Municipality of Zumpango del Rio, state of Guerrero. Other
      reports involving strange phenomena have been received from other
      municipalities early this year.
