Dear Mr. Rense
I'm referring to your weekly E-News from 7/11/99 to 7/17/99 about the Mexico UFO Video report. The Sighting took place here in Monterrey, N.L., Mexico where I live, on July 7 / 1999.
My friend Fernando Von Rossum, UFO Researcher and TV Journalist, called me early Wednesday morning and told me that a UFO was recorded live during the news service broadcast by local TV Azteca Network at 7:30 AM. Since we have a local UFO Radio Show on Thursdays, he invited me to see the video in the TV Azteca studios to be able to have the complete report and interviews for our radio show.
We were received by news producer Mr. Jorge Lugo who was very friendly and helpful, and also was very excited by the event of that morning and wanted to know our opinion. He showed us the original betacam video and our first impression was very promising. It was during the newscast that morning that a cameraman was on the roof taking images of the city to insert live views during the weather report. The news was hosted by Luis Padua and Leticia Benavides in a typical live transmission. At 7:30 AM the weather report began with a beautiful view of La Silla Mountain (symbol of Monterrey).
It was already daylight and the morning was very clear. Suddenly, during a camera pan to the right, Jorge Lugo the producer noticed something strange present in the scene. He shouted to the cameraman to freeze the camera in that direction and make a zoom to the black spot aside the Mountain. When the camera zoomed in, the strange intruder, Jorge Lugo shouted again saying: "It's an OVNI!!".
By this time Luis Padua and Lety Benavides, news casters, were hearing Lugo's conversation through their earphones and decided to make public the amazing sighting that was taking place outside and forgot about the weather for a moment to cover this "live" event. In less than a minute the response of the public arrived and the TV station began receiving numerous calls especially from the residents of that area who went out to the street and saw the unidentified object with their own eyes.
The "live" event lasted five minutes with a dialogue between Luis and Lety wondering if this object could be one of the so-called OVNIs. Finally, the news continued it's normal schedule but outside the cameraman have still the UFO on sight. In a later interview he told us that a comercial airplane appeared on the scene at a certain distance and the UFO suddenly followed it disappearing.
That afternoon we had the chance to watch the whole video sequence with the original unedited audio. The first images presented a disc-shaped UFO, static in the sky, and suddenly it moved to the left and then to the right. During this maneuver the cameraman lost sight of the object and he had some trouble finding it again. When he centered the object again , he made a zoom and at that moment we detected an oscillatory movement of some kind from the disc and almost immediately it seemed to change shape to oval. This was the moment that it reflected the sunlight on it's body and that gave us the idea that it was a metallic object. Besides, the sun was exactly on that direction and several seconds later it turned disc shaped again. At the end of the video the ufo had a strange behavior since the sunlight made a rare reflection on the ufo's body.
We are analyzing the original video and we discovered in an Avid enhancement and zooming process that the flying disc had a certain unknown halo all around it, like an ionized energy of some kind. But these are just primary steps in the necesary computer analysis that we're conducting in our CompuLab. We hope to have more interesting findings very soon. Another remarkable aspect of this sighting is that it took place in July and it seems that this month has a close relationship with ufo activity here in Monterrey since other major ufo sightings have also happened in July.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Mr. Jorge Lugo from TV Azteca-Monterrey for his cooperation in this investigation by making the video available to us to make the proper computer analysis. This is our report of the case and I'm sending you some stills taken from the video so you could see what this is all about.

Dear Jeff,
Yesterday, July 20th, your Web Site appeared on mexican TV nationwide coverage in response for your kind attention to our July 7th UFO report.
The people from TV Azteca are very pleased and excited to have been mentioned in your superb Web Site and they decided to make an update of the July 7th UFO report, and also did a " Live" show that was broadcast yesterday morning on local channel 7 and then later night on Mexico City's channel 13 with nationwide coverage.
During the show they mentioned you and Sightings as the world's top Web Site and invited the Mexican people to visit your page and consult the July 7th ufo report. They also made an interesting computer analysis and I'm including one of the zooming images.
I want to express my sincere gratitude to you for your valuable support to our efforts into Mexican ufo research. With your help we have made a big goal in attracting the Mexican media's attention to these ufo events. They were usually skeptical but now Mexico's TV is taking this activity very seriously.
Thanks again and we'll keep in touch,
Santiago Yturria Mexico.
Dear Santiago,
On behalf of my webmaster, James Neff, we are honored to be able to present some of your excellent research, and the fine work of TV Azteca-Monterrey and its outstanding News Producer Jorge Lugo and his staff.
Your fine efforts reflect the dedicated work of thousands of researchers around the world who are giving their time and energy attempting to solve the UFO/OVNI mystery.
We are also very pleased to learn that TV Azteca-Monterrey produced a special update on the sighting and that Mexico City's channel 13 showed the report to all of Mexico. We can only hope that American network television will someday catch up to the leadership being demonstrated by Mexican television.
