Shape: Cigar | Duration: 2 min

Cigar-shaped orange emitting light over the beach in Cancun, MexicoOn March 14, 2009, just after we arrived to Cancun, my wife and I were relaxing on a terrace of one of the Royal Resort hotels, watching stars shimmering on a clear night sky. It was at about 6:30 PM local time, when we suddenly observed a cigar-shaped object moving noiselessly fast from North to South. It was emitting orange flickering light from window-like openings of this object. Then it suddenly stopped, reversed its direction of movement, stopped again, begun to continue its North-bound path, and finally performed a zigzag kind of a dance and finally rapidly moved over the horizon.We have to stress that are both scientists and are not easily subjected to illusions. We have never seen anything like that in our lives, and now we are convinced that we were seeing a true UFO. After coming back to Boston, we checked at Internet and found out that Cancun is the location at which numerous UFO sightings were reported by many people. It would be interesting to know why Mexico and particularly Cancun is such a UFO’s favorable place. Maybe they are also attracted by a warm climate and beautiful scenery of this place?
