Initial data

Initial information from sources or from an eyewitness
Incident date: 

UFO sightings occurred during the current tropical cyclone season over the Mexican state of Tamaulipas. 

The object was spotted in the sky by a man named Juanito Juan. A man was photographing approaching storm clouds when he suddenly noticed a metal UFO in the shape of a disk in the sky.

The photos were taken on August 17, 2022, and the object itself is visible in several photos. Separate shots show its movement in the sky.


High-quality photos of a UFO flying over a garage caused a real stir in Mexico. After they became popular online, they were shown on national television. This is reported by the Daily Star.

The photos were taken by Juan Manuel Sanchez, who said that he was trying to capture images of an approaching storm on his smartphone and accidentally noticed the object.

Clear high-resolution photos show a "flying saucer" hovering against a background of dark clouds. The disc-shaped shape of the unidentified object is clearly visible in the photo.

Despite the fact that the photos caused a stir, there were skeptics who doubted their authenticity. Versions were also put forward that there was not without installation. Others considered that this is a natural phenomenon unknown to science.

However, Juan remained true to his story, telling the Mexican TV channel RDTV about the surveillance on August 17.

The eyewitness's statements were supported by his wife and one of his colleagues, who also reported that they saw a mysterious saucer before it flew into the sky, probably into space.

Huang said he was shocked when he noticed the strange object. He added that he regrets that he did not capture the object on video, since his camera was set to the photographing mode.

He told RDTV:

"It was right over this house over the cables. It's sad that I couldn't get the video."

The authenticity of Juan's photographs remains unclear, but he seems convinced that he saw something in the sky.

He added:

"We were working here, on the street, in the workshop, when we saw very dark clouds. When we started observing the object, it was in one place and didn't move, and then when I took the second and third photos, it started moving up. I saw its disc-shaped shape. When I switched my phone to video mode, the object had already flown away."

Original news

Obserwacja UFO miała miejsce podczas obecnego sezonu tropikalnych cyklonów nad meksykańskim stanem Tamaulipas. Obiekt został dostrzeżony na niebie przez niejakiego Juanito Juana.  Mężczyzna fotografował, nadciągające chmury burzowe, gdy niespodziewanie, zauważył na niebie metaliczne UFO w kształcie dysku.

Fotografie, zostały wykonane 17 sierpnia 2022 roku, a sam obiekt, jest widoczny na kilku ujęciach. Poszczególne klatki, ukazują jego ruch na niebie. Autorstwo zdjęć, zostało przypisane do twórcy postu na twitterze z 18 sierpnia br.

Przez ostatnie lata, Meksyk okazał się bardzo aktywnym państwem jeśli chodzi o zgłaszanie obserwacji UFO. Zdecydowanie znacząca jest tu obecność wulkanów Popocatepetl i Colima, które regularnie stają się areną do niezwykłych obserwacji.
