Recently released photographs show a quintessential 'flying saucer' over the Mexican state of Tamaulipas.
Mexico has certainly seen its fair share of UFO sightings over the years; Mexico City in particular has often been considered a hotspot for the phenomenon, especially following a spate of sightings that were reported over the city at the time of a solar eclipse back in the 1990s.

This latest sighting, which comes courtesy of an individual named Juanito Juan, reportedly occurred over the Mexican state of Tamaulipas on August 17th.

The witness took several photographs at the time showing a reflective metallic disc-shaped object in the sky in front of some foreboding looking storm clouds.

When viewed together, the pictures provide a suggestion of the object's movements.
"This photo was taken today 8/17/22 in the rural area of Tamaulipas by a person who calls himself Juanito Juan, during the afternoon of this day and when he wanted to take some photos of the storm clouds, he noticed this object and took this sequence, incredible images," the caption states.

As things stand, however, little else is known about the sighting, meaning that it is difficult to get a concrete picture of the circumstances or the validity of the photographs.

You can view the original Twitter post, along with the full set of photos, below.

Meiers would have had grainy 8mm film of the flying saucer quickly swinging back and forth obviously on a string attached to something just above the frame. And this guy has an entire cult dedicated to serving his needs.

I resemble that remark...No "maybe" about it. Age, mileage and being drained and dried out.

Ah, good ole Jaime Maussan. Miss the good, old times in that respect. Where did Richard Hoagland, the legacy of the late so-often called upon nuclear physicists Friedman, Greer and his implants, etc., go? What about the blog of the vehement defender of the Roswell UFO=ET crash? Away? Cheers, Badeskov

Idk, in the 50s were the van tassel giant rock UFO conventions, at its zenith, 1000s showed up to melt in the desert most boasting of meeting aliens it was the sounding board for folks like adamski and others who made claims of meeting human looking aliens and riding in the flying saucers to home planets like Jupiter . Time pasted and that stuff became ridculous except to the dear believer who said i cant prove human looking aliens dont live on Jupiter.
