broadcast footage taken by air force pilots of what they say are
unidentified flying objects (UFOs).
The footage shows bright lights
with "movements and characteristics that do not have - up to now - a
scientific explanation," according to the Televisa network.
force pilots are heard expressing amazement on the tape.
frame-by-frame analysis shows 16 UFOs, according to the
Televisa said the film was taken with an infrared camera
and there are no alterations.
"It is one of the most important film
documents we have been able to access, especially because it comes from an
official source," said Jaime Mausan, a journalist who has been tracking
the UFO phenomenon for more than 25 years.
The daily La Jornada on
Tuesday however dismissed the brouhaha as "circus".

believed were eight UFOs that overflew Mexico City and the city's
