The following is a preliminary report of this event in Puerto Rico -- the flight of a large triangular UFO over Puerto Rico. More witnesses to this sighting are coming forward, since there were more people on the avenue when the event took place. We would like any witnesses living in Puerto Rico's Carolina and Urb. Los Angeles districts to please phone us at the following numbers in order to continue our research. At this time only one person has photographed the object, but we are aware that more people saw it, including administrative personnel from the [Luis Munoz Marin International] Airport. Tel. 787-821-1671 and 787-764-3206

Transcript of the Interview by Willie Durand Urbina and Jose A. Martinez Echevarria with the witness to the triangular UFO seen on May 15, 2005 at 12:16 a.m.

Willie: Hi Wilfredo, please tell us the experience you had when you left work. Wilfredo: Well, it was one night when I left work at around 12 midnight. I was in the town of Carolina near the Los Angeles development, on an avenue exactly facing the airport and beyond Baldorioty [de Castro Avenue], or exactly behind Baldorioty. Then I saw a glow that came from behind a hill and thought it was strange.

Willie: There's a hill there?

Wilfredo: That's right, in the rear. That's when I heard the dogs barking, the birds singing and I saw the animals were becoming desperate. I was frightened. What could it be?
Then when I looked behind me, I saw a great, very large glow. But I couldn't see the craft because I was inside the van. I pulled the van over and got out -- that's when I saw an immense triangular object. I can't give you the exact measurments, can't describe it in meters, but I can tell you [and compare it] to the size of a ball park or two enormous ball parks. It was going very slowly and passed directly over me.

Willie: Was it making any noise in particular?

Wilfriedo: None. No sound, just a light coming out of the middle.

Willie: Did you feel any heat, atmospheric changes, or temperature [changes] as the object went by?

Wilfredo: Yes, it seems that the light emitted some sort of heat, I don't know what kind of heat. It was like a high voltage bulb and you could feel the heat of the light. It made no noise whatsoever and was going slowly, very slowly, and thats when the van's engine and lights went out completely. I got inside, tried to turn the engine over, but nothing. Ahh!! But before getting inside, I took my camera phone and tried to take photos of the object, but I had to remove the fidner to lower the light intensity, because it couldn't be seen in the photos when I took it. I removed the light intensity from the camera and that's how I managed to capture the craft and photograph it. Then I took another photo from inside my vehicle, and that's strange , because nothing electrical worked, yet the cellphone cameraa worked. I don't know how, but its as if they were (allowing me to take the pictures.)

Willie: Did other cars stop as the UFO flew overhead?

Wilfredo: Yes, there were some 3 cars but quite far from where I was. When the UFO went away, my van started up just fine. I even found it strange that the airport was under [the object's path] and its lights also went out. There must be more people there who saw the object, too. After passing over the airport it went higher and vanished into the sky at high speed.

Willie: Did you see any airplanes at the sighting spot or near it, in the vicinity of the sky?

Wilfredo: I didn't see any other airplanes flying over the area. It was also cloudy. In fact [as the object rose] it was possible to see the clouds very well lit by the object as it ascended. It was so immense that the glow continued lighting up more and more clouds. I looked at this and thought "wow!"

Willie: And it lit up the area you were at?

Wilfredo: Yes, it all looked like noon. It was incredible.



"Senate pressured to hold hearings on ET"

November 26, 2005

Senate pressured to hold hearings on ET


A number of groups have joined forces with former Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer in urging Parliament to hold public hearings on 'exopolitics' - or relations with extraterrestrials (ETs).

Three non-governmental organizations (NGOs) were reacting to a speech made by Hellyer in September in Toronto in which he warned that "UFOs are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head.''

Hellyer said he is concerned the United States is preparing weapons for use against the aliens and could get the whole world into an "intergalactic war.'' According to Hellyer, the Americans' interest in returning to the moon is in part based on the desire to build a forward military base there.

The three organizations backing Hellyer's request for hearings are the Institute for Co-operation in Space (ICIS), the Toronto Exopolitics Symposium and the Disclosure Project, a U.S.-based organization that has assembled high-level military-intelligence witnesses of a possible ET presence.

Earlier this month, the Senate replied to the ICIS that their full agenda precluded any hearings in the near future on ET issues.

"That does not deter us," one spokesman for the NGOs said, "We are going ahead with our request to Prime Minister Paul Martin and the official Opposition leaders in the House of Commons now, and we will re-apply to the Senate of Canada in early 2006.

"Time is on the side of open disclosure that there are ethical extraterrestrial civilizations visiting Earth.''




Mexico ETV Reports

To: Chief of Staff (all House and Senate offices)

Washington, DC - On Tuesday in Mexico City infrared footage of lights engaging and surrounding a military jet (much in the manner of the legendary Foo Fighters of World War II) was released to the public. Notably, this footage was provided to researcher and journalist Jamie Maussan by the Mexican Defense Ministry. As reported by the Associated Press:

Mexico City - Mexican air force pilots filmed 11 unidentified flying objects in the skies over southern Campeche state, a Defence Department spokesman confirmed Tuesday.

A videotape made widely available to the news media Tuesday shows the bright objects, some sharp points of light and others like large headlights, moving rapidly in what appears to be a late-evening sky.

The lights were filmed March 5 by pilots using infrared equipment. They appeared to be flying at an altitude of about 3,500 metres and allegedly surrounded the air force jet as it conducted routine anti-drug trafficking vigilance in Campeche. Only three of the objects showed up on the plane's radar.

This footage is a fraction of the thousands of photographs and videos taken of nighttime and daylight disks also observed by citizens in the skies over Mexico since 1991 - easily the largest "flap" of sightings in the modern era. Naturally, these sightings were dismissed by U.S. media, often by reasoning which could be construed as xenophobic and racist.

It is important that Members of Congress see this release of evidence by the defense department of a foreign country as a "shot across the bow" of the United States demonstrating a growing impatience with the U.S. embargo on the truth of the extraterrestrial presence. There have been others. In November of 2002 the United Kingdom's Ministry of Defence made a substantial release of previously classified documents relating to the extraordinary events at Bentwaters Air Force Base near Rendlesham Forest in 1980. In July of 1999 a "non-governmental" committee (COMETA), notably composed of former French military and agency officials, released a two-year study, the COMETA Report, which among other things, clearly indicated the likelihood of an extraterrestrial explanation for the world wide sightings and chastised the United States government for its obdurate and unenlightened position on the matter.

Other nations are losing patience with the U.S. led truth embargo. One of them is going to break ranks and end this embargo and take this legacy for itself. The United States Congress is doing absolutely nothing to assert its prerogatives in a matter of extreme national significance. It will be permanently damaged if it does not take action - NOW.

Stan Friedman, physicist, regarding ETs and ETVs in Mexico.
(Responding to people saying the ET Vehicles filmed by the Mexican Air Force are not really UFOs) -- May 13, 2004

MSNBC's Keith Olbermann interviews
one of America's leading, most respected
and foremost UFO authorities, on the
Mexican UFOs video.

Joining me now Stanton Friedman, a nuclear physicist, pioneer in the field of ufology. His forthcoming book is called "Flying Saucers and Science."

Mr. Friedman, good evening.


FRIEDMAN: Good evening, Keith.

OLBERMANN: Reports now say that this is some new stealth - similar to the
F-117-A. Do you buy that?

FRIEDMAN: No, I don't buy it at all.
First place, we wouldn't be testing them down there. In the second
place, there were too many of them. And in the third place, stealth
normally applies to radar. They were seen on radar. They weren't seen
visually, but they were seen by sophisticated infrared equipment. So it
makes no sense that we would be doing this. We would be using them over
in Iraq is what we'd be doing.

OLBERMANN: Yes. Is there any - if it's not stealth fighters, are
there any natural earthbound explanations for this?

FRIEDMAN: Well, I sure can't see one. I have heard all kinds of ones,
space debris, meteorites. It makes no sense.

They were in formation. They were around the object. The sighting lasted
for many, many minutes. They took off at very high speed. We know that
the information came from the Mexican Department of Defense. They say
there's no national security impact. I think if there were bombers
flying over their country, they would be worried about that. Wouldn't

OLBERMANN: Yes. But what I want to know is, how hopped up ufologists
about this? Where does this rank among the supposed sightings and
perhaps the real sightings in the last 57 years?

FRIEDMAN: Well, it ranks high because of the source of the information.
When was the last time a U.S. government military official gave you
footage taken by military aircraft of strange stuff that's flying

The 'Cosmic Watergate' is real. And, unfortunately, it is very hard to
get data out of the U.S. or even the Canadian government. So this is a
real break with past practice in North America by military persons.

OLBERMANN: A big picture question. Maybe this is too philosophical and
we're - I'm staring at one of the great breakthrough moments in the
history of the world and I'm asking you a philosophical question.

But why do you think, if they keep coming here, we have not had that
"Klaatu Barada Nikto" big moment? Why do they seem to keep coming to
this planet and never stopping to visit with all of us? Essentially,
these look like "drive-by aliens?"

FRIEDMAN: Are we worth talking to?! I think they're here - frankly,
If you were an alien, would you want us out there? We're a
primitive society whose MAJOR ACTIVITY IS TRIBAL WARFARE. I think they
are concerned that we will take our brand of friendship, obviously
hostility, out there, which, if you were an alien, you would want to be
very wary of these characters here.

Of course, we don't know that there hasn't been contact with government,
but they have not landed on my lawn. And I don't think they have landed
on the White House lawn either.

OLBERMANN: Yes, when they show up in the studio, then we will officially
declare that they are here. Well, we'll follow this one.

Stanton T. Friedman, the author of "Flying Saucers and Science," many
thanks for your time, sir.

FRIEDMAN: My pleasure.





World renowned scientist and researcher, Linda Moulton Howe in an interview with Jaime Mousson asked if the Mexican government had had contact with the US government about the ETVs over the State of Campeche.You would think the Mexican government would want to confirm it was not American advanced stealth aircraft flying over Mexico. But, the answer was that when the objects in the sky are on the radar screens and cannot be seen with the eyes, the Mexican Air Force did not think that even the US has the technology to render their planes invisible!

Mexico's Department of Defense



Releases UFO Information



Evidence of an International Rift in the Management of UFO's/Extraterrestrial Affairs?

On Tuesday, May 11, 2004, an international press conference was held to announce the findings of a joint official and private effort to investigate a UFO sighting. What is remarkable in the press conference is that Department of Defense collaborated with a top Mexican UFO researcher, Jaime Maussan, in the release of information concerning the appearance of up to 11 UFO's in the vicinity of a Mexican Air force flight that was on a drug surveillance mission on March 5, 2004. Using infrared cameras and radar tracking, the eight-man crew of the Merlin C26/A flight was able to monitor the UFOs, which at one point formed a circle around the flight. In investigating the incident, the Air force contacted Jaime Maussan and asked him to participate in the inquiry.

The release of data on the UFOs taken by a Mexican Air force crew was certainly a coup for Maussan who released the information in the popular television program 'Great Mysteries of the Third Millennium' on May 9, 2004. Maussan was initially contacted on April 20, by the Department of Defense and had a meeting the next day with General Clemente Vega Garcia, Secretary of Defense and his senior officials. The Secretary of Defense went further however than simply informing Maussan of the incident. General Clemente released film and other data of the incident to Maussan that he could investigate with his own independent research team. The Department of Defense confirmed to international media outlets such as Reuters in a May 11 Press Conference that it had handed over the film and data to Maussan. This was certainly unprecedented and signaled a major new approach to dealing with the UFO phenomenon by a major world government.

Up to the present time, there appears to have been a well-coordinated international effort in managing UFO sightings and reports of UFO crashes. These have typically been handled in a way suggesting a sophisticated global system for dealing with UFO sightings, and even collecting the remains of crashed UFOs, without witnesses having much credibility before the mass media. This global management system has prevented governmental releases of UFO information to the general public and international media. Whatever releases did occur typically involved private civilians rather than military personnel in their official capacities revealing UFO information. In the US, military personnel have been legally proscribed from participating in the release of information of UFO sightings according to military regulations described in the Joint Army Navy Air Publication (JANAP) 146 released in 1953. Similar provisions are found in the British Ministry of Defense and other major nations that have had to deal with the UFO phenomenon, and/or cooperate closely with the US.

This official international system for repressing UFO reports suffered a significant setback in 1999 with the release of a French government supported study of the UFO phenomenon. The COMETA Report comprised former top military officials and found credible evidence to support the existence of UFOs as phenomenon that required serious political attention. The COMETA report was not widely covered in the US but signaled that major nations differed in how much information they should release to their general publics. In December 2002, the British Ministry of Defense released a file on the Rendlesham UFO incident of 1980 describing one of the most well document UFO sightings in British history. Significantly, the US military has not released its own files of the incident despite having played a leading investigatory role at Rendlesham. The respective official positions over the Rendlesham files suggests a clear difference of opinion between the British and US military officials over the extent to which UFO information will be released to the general public and the mass media.

The participation of the Mexican Department of Defense in collaborating with Maussan in releasing information on a contemporary UFO sighting is unprecedented. This is a significant development that goes even further than the COMETA report in challenging the non-disclosure position supported by the US government that apparently plays a major role in the international management system in place for UFO sightings/crashes. The Mexican Department of Defense effort in collaborating with Maussan simultaneously achieves a number of things. First, it helps legitimate research into the UFO phenomenon that now has official government support as a credible field of study at least in Mexico. Second, it legitimates the investigatory skills and experiences of private Mexican researchers such as Maussan. Third, it comes at a time of great international friction over the war in Iraq suggesting that this Mexican initiative marks a major rupture in the de facto global management system for UFOs that echoes global dissent over US policies in Iraq. If the COMETA report and the release of the Rendlesham files are solid indicators of the European position towards UFO disclosure, then it appears that the US is becoming increasingly isolated in its strict non-disclosure policy.

If indeed there is a major rift in the global management system over the rate and extent to which disclosure of UFOs sightings and/or UFO evidence is made to the general public of major states, then it may be predicted that further disclosures by other governments are likely. It may be concluded that the Mexican Department of Defense collaboration with private UFO researchers heralds a major new phase in the UFO phenomenon. With a more integrated global media and Internet, it will be very difficult if impossible for the mass media in the US to ignore UFO developments in other countries. If major world governments begin disclosing information concerning contemporary UFO sightings, then it may be predicted that the non-disclosure policy in place for over 50 years may soon come to an end. This would usher in the age of exopolitics where the political implications of an extraterrestrial presence would predictably dominate global politics.

Subject: RE: The UFO Phenomenon in Mexico

Hello Andrea,

Thank you for your message and your interest on the Mexico UFO activity.

You speak wise words and I agree with you. We are in a gentle mood here for those ET crafts that have been very close to our people since the beginning of this amazing wave in July 11, 1991.

Yes, I'm convinced that the ET's feel confident and free interacting with us without any danger for them by the military or the government. The spiritual sense of the Mexicans is great and in every heart of each Mexican there is a familiar feeling towards these beautiful beings.

The actual conditions here in Mexico are perfect to concert a contact and the Mexicans are ready in mind and consciousness to receive these space brothers anytime.

We just hope this contact arrive very soon.

Receive my best regards,



(I'm including this brief story of my friend Carlos Diaz. He visited the Big Island ten years ago and I had the pleasure of meeting him in person. He is a gentle soul and true humanitarian. After more than a decade of contact with Extraterrestials, he began to video his extraordinary experiences just after the full solar eclipse of July 11, 1991, when there were multiple sightings in Mexico City. His explanations of Plasma ships confirm my own experiences with these brilliant light vehicles. His video footage of the ships with his explanation of how they manifest into our physical reality is included in his video, "Ships of Light." Since Carlos has had contact with this ET civilization, the entire focus of his life is about helping humanity and planet Earth. - Joan)



Carlos Diaz


One morning in January 1981, Mexican photographer Carlos Diaz pulled into a deserted car park at Ajusco Park near Mexico City. He was on an assignment for a magazine, and had arranged to meet a journalist who was yet to arrive. Diaz sat in his car, preparing his camera for the job ahead. Although it was early in the morning, the air was thick with humidity which made even sitting still uncomfortable. Impatiently, Diaz began to look at his watch. Suddenly, his attention was caught by a strange yellow glow coming from the valley below him. At first he thought it was a forest fire, but, an instant later, the source of light revealed itself to be a large, orange, oval-shaped UFO, slowly hovering about 30 metres from his car.

Unable to believe his eyes, Diaz quickly grabbed his camera. With it resting on his steering wheel, he began frantically firing off shots. Then, without warning, the whole car began to shake violently. Diaz got out of the vehicle and took two more photographs before the craft sped up vertically into the sky, leaving Diaz in a state of shock. This encounter marked the beginning of what was to develop into one of he most fascinating and long-running contactee cases in the history of UFOlogy. Today, the case remains among a small minority of alledged extraterrestrial encounters to be supported by verified film documentation that has stood up to the scrutiny of a range of experts.



Indeed, the apparent credibility of Diaz's claims has attracted the attention of some of the world's top UFO researchers, including German author Michael Hesemann and abduction researcher Dr John Mack. Both concluded that Diaz's story is completely credible. Hesemann echoes the views of most researchers when he states: 'The Carlos Diaz case is the most important case of documented alien-human contact to have emerged in modern times.' Certainly, at the time of his initial encounter, Diaz little suspected what was to come. The transition from a run-of-the-mill UFO sighting in an area now acknowledged as a UFO hot-spot, to one of the key cases of recent years did not occur until weeks later. In the days that followed this January sighting, Diaz remained preoccupied by his experience. Unable to forget what he had seen, he repeatedly returned to the Ajusco Park location, hoping to secure more pictures. After a succession of fruitless visits, Diaz began to think that he was wasting his time. But then, on 23rd of March, his patience was rewarded.



While roaming the greenery, Diaz was again alerted to the presence of a UFO by an orange glow, which he could see only dimly through the fog and rain that had saturated the forest in Ajusco Park. As he climbed up the walls of the valley, he managed to position himself within 45 metres of the object. Diaz watched the 'craft' hovering above him, eminating a bright orange light. It was, he said, dome-shaped with a smooth ring in its centre. This, claimed Diaz, was covered with a number of half spheres, each around one metre in diameter. Crouching behind some rocks, Diaz thought his actions had gone unnoticed, but, as he continued to watch the craft, he felt someone grab his shoulder from behind. Diaz immediately fainted, and, when he awoke, it was dark and the UFO was gone. He was shocked to discover that, despite heavy rain, his clothes were completely dry. At that point, he knew something strange had happened to him. When he returned to his car, Diaz noticed another car parked in front of him. At this point, Diaz claimed, a humanoid entity with fair hair approached him and told him that if he wanted to know more about what he had just experienced, he should return to the same spot at noon the following day. Apparently, when Diaz returned the next day, he discovered the same entity sitting on the grass. Diaz claimed that the being then turned to him and explained that it was he who grabbed his shoulder the previous day. Before leaving, the being also told Diaz that he had come from inside the craft and that Diaz would gradually recover his memory of what had happened while he was unconscious. Sure enough, over the next few months, Diaz's memory returned, piece by piece.

According to his account, he recalled the craft hovered directly over his head. As he attempted to touch the craft, his hand seemed to pass through the yellow light and he seemed to merge with it. The next thing he recalled was seeing the craft parked on a platform inside a giant cave. Diaz was filled with awe when he remembered what he had seen inside: 'It was full of stalagmites, some of which were carved into what appeared to be Mayan sculptures,' he stated. 'I saw many people in the cave, some of whom waved to me and, in a state of shock, I waved back.' Apparantly the being Diaz had encountered in the park then led him to a smaller cave which contained seven glowing, egg-shaped orbs, one of which Diaz was invited to step into. On entering, Diaz could at first only see yellow light.

But then he found himself surrounded by the image of a forest. 'I could see all the details of the forest as if I was walking through it,' said Diaz. 'I couldn't touch anything, but I could feel the temperature and moisture. I could see and experience everything, yet I wasn't physically there.' His guide then told him that the orbs were also a system for storing information and that certain data had been imparted to him. Diaz was then returned to the ship and, in time, to the park.



According to Diaz, this was only the first of a series of contacts with the same beings, which continue to this day. Since 1981, Diaz has stated that his experience inside the orbs has enabled him to 'travel' to different regions of the Earth's ecosystem - forest, desert, jungle, shoreline, even Arctic areas - with his ET contact. Through this contact, Diaz claims to have been imbued with an awareness of the interconnectedness of all life and the need to preserve our environment. To many UFOlogists, especially those who have had their 'fingers burnt' by alledged contactees before, these claims may appear far-fetched. However, Diaz is seen by many researchers as a highly reliable source, not least because of the strong body of photographic evidence he has amassed to support his claims.



Mexican TV journalist and UFOlogist Jaime Maussan, who has been at the centre of UFO investigations in Mexico since the wave began in 1991, believes that Diaz's UFO photographs are among the most impressive he has seen. Maussan took Diaz's photographs to Jim Dilettoso, an image processing expert at Village Labs, in Tucson, Arizona, who concluded they were genuine. After satisfying himself he was not dealing with a hoaxer, Maussan visited Diaz at his hime in Tepoztlan, Mexico. There, he spoke to a number of other witnesses who claimed to have seen exactly the same type of UFO. The apparent credibility of the Diaz case has also attracted UFO researchers from further afield, who have attempted to glean insights into the alien agenda from Diaz's contactee claims. German author Michael Hesemann, who first interviewed Diaz in June 1994, is convinced of the credibility of Diaz's story. 'Not only is he contacting these beings through encounters on the ships,' says Hesemann, 'but he claims to be meeting these beings socially, since he believes some of them are living among us.' However Hesemann explains that, according to Diaz, the beings are reluctant to fully disclose their origins. 'Apparently,' says Hesemann, 'they did, however, explain that they have been visiting Earth for thousands of years, and are particularly interested in our evolution which, compared to their own, has happened at a much faster rate. They are trying to learn why.'

Another UFO researcher intrigued by Diaz's case is Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, John Mack. Mack has a long history of dealing with abductees and contactees and believes that the Diaz case is among the most convincing he has come across. in his book Passport to the Cosmos, he states: 'Out of all the experiencers I have worked with, it is Carlos Diaz who seems to have developed the richest understanding of the interconnected web of nature. Diaz's experience of connecting with living creatures is so intense that he seems literally to become the thing he is describing.' Diaz's experience, Mack claims constitutes an 'awakening', a process which, he says, is common in abductees. Diaz told Mack that his contact with the ETs had instilled in him a need to preserve the environment and the ability to 'enjoy a beautiful planet'. Whether or not an extraterrestrial influence was involved, Diaz's new-found concern for the environment has certainly become a driving force in his life. he has repeatedly and passionately conveyed this environmental warning publicly, most notably at a UFO conference in Dusseldorf, Germany in 1995. Diaz has revealed that he had been informed through his contacts that the civilization of the visiting extraterrestrial, like ours, had been threatened by its own history of destruction, but had somehow managed to survive. He remains convinced that his contacts' disturbing prediction for our future is only too real - a prediction that states with near certainty that humanity, on its current course, is headed for total extinction.



This outspokenness, coupled with the public nature of his experience, has le Diaz to assume visionary status in both his home town of Tepoztlan and UFO circles. however, Diaz has been quick to dispute this, claiming that he is not a unique visionary, but merely 'a messenger'. The real nature of Diaz's current incarnation aside, for many UFOlogists, the Diaz case remains among the most convincing on record. Indeed, few UFO reports exist that boast such impressive and abundant photographic evidence. And fewer still have emerged that have stood up to the scrutiny applied to Diaz's images.



Expert analysis of Carlos Diaz's UFO pictures has been extremely thorough. Mexican UFOlogist Jaime Maussan gave the original transparencies to Professor Victor Quesada at the Polytechnical Institute of the University of Mexico for examination. Quesada stated: 'We were shocked to discover that the spectrum of light from the object was unlike anything we have ever seen, it broke all previous parameters and didn't match anything in our data banks. The light was extraordinarily intense. There was no evidence of superimposition or a hoax. We estimated the object to be around 30 to 50 metres in diameter.' Interestingly, the photographs were also analysed by Dr Robert Nathan at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California. Nathan, a notorious UFO sceptic, stated that he could find no evidence of a fake.

Certainly, for many who have examined the three
images, the first shot is the most impressive.

In it, the orange glowing craft can be seen through the

windshield of the car, and light from the object is reflected

both off the car's bonnet and off the metal guard rail by

the side of the road. These, in particular, are details that

experts claim are extremely difficult to fake.




Mexican UFOlogist Jaime maussan was so intrigued by Carlos Diaz's account of his experiences that he provided him with a video camera and asked him to see if he could record the UFO on tape when it next appeared. A few weeks later, Diaz awoke at 5 a.m. and grabbed his camera. he walked out and waited. Apparently, within minutes, the craft appeared and hovered over the house, where Diaz filmed it. When Maussan saw the remarkable footage, he asked Diaz if he could get even closer to the craft while filming. Two months later, Diaz was once again able to film the craft, which this time hovered directly above him, without moving.


However it is Diaz's third attempt to capture the craft on video that is the most spectacular. In this footage, Diaz having mounted his camera on a tripod, walks to the bottom of a field waving a flash light. Responding to this, the craft suddenly materializes directly above Diaz's head and sends beams of light down towards him. Then, the unidentified object remains motionless for 30 seconds, before blinking out. It is universally recognized that this video contains some of the best UFO footage ever taken.
