TAMAYO The details of the sighting that I experienced are a little hazy. It is an experience that I had forgotten about, but would from time to time, somehow recollected. As the seven or eight year old third grader that I was at the time, the intense fascination and fear of seeing something strange in the sky was there but regrettably subsided, as stated before, into a forgotten memory. As an adult, I on occasion go over the events that occurred that night in my mind for some new revelation...something that may be omitted from my current recollection but would help me explain what the hell it was that I saw. I will state the events from two points of view: 1] as the kid that I was and how I remember it from THOSE eyes and, 2] as an adult, with analytical skills and reason. The sighting occurred around 1969 or 1970, roughly the week before, during, or after the Easter holiday week. At the time I was visiting with relatives in Mexico, in the city or Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. SETTING: I sat on the back porch with a cousin, at his home. The porch was more of a rectangular "room". As you walk onto the porch from the house, there are glass panes and a sliding glass door to walk through, a ceiling, two solid walls to the left and right, and no wall facing the backyard. The floor of the porch itself was marble and there are two steps running the entire length of the outer porch, which lead down to the backyard. I was sitting on the top step in the middle of the porch, looking up at the sky. This is something that for some reason I have done all my life stare up into the sky at night. My cousin, a guy of high school age, was sitting in a chair to my left. We were talking about something, I cannot remember. The night air was a little cool, and the sky was clear. The moon was full or almost full at a position of about upper mid-left in the field of vision that we had. THE SIGHTING: At about 7:20pm (according to my "baseball" watch), we spotted three RED lights in the sky emerge from our right. The lights formed a triangle with one light ahead of the other two. The lights were traveling in an upwardly slanted direction across the sky , towards the position of Moon. The lights looked like stars, but appeared much bigger and closer and circular. As they traveled towards the left they appeared to get smaller. My cousin and I looked at this sight and both felt that something was not right. It didn't seem like an airplane. I suddenly became afraid (I don't know why). I got the impression that my cousin was also afraid. The only person home at the time was another older cousin, a guy of college age. We ran inside to get him, to come outside and see! He reluctantly came outside. We probably made no sense to him and he had a smile on his face like "you guys are crazy". At this time, for some reason I looked at my watch to notice the time. When we got back out on the porch again the lights had gone. But we saw something else. The Moon had turned from it's silvery white color...to a RED. I felt more fear and so did my cousin. As we stood there, we all spoke, but I don't remember what was said. After a moment, the older cousin, just laughed and said "oh it's nothing" and walked back inside. My conclusion at the time was that missiles had been fired at the Moon and the Moon was being destroyed. My cousin and I went back inside...the Moon was still red. I think we checked one more time a little later on, and the Moon was still red. PRESNT DAY: I remember that we dismissed the possibility of the lights being an airplane. We heard no sound. I am sure now that we saw space (or something) in between the lights indicating that the lights were not joined or originating from a single vehicle or craft like an airplane. In measuring the movement and speed of the lights, the only reference I can make would be to relate it to the speed of an airplane as it crosses the sky. The lights did not blink or move away at a high rate of speed. The rising fear that I felt and that I believe my cousin felt was very real. It made us run...yes run inside to "get help", or at least get someone else to see it. Upon returning, with the older cousin, and seeing the Moon with it's RED tinge was indeed a frightening sight. I have concluded that what we witnessed was an unidentified flying object. In relation I believe that the lights or objects produced some kind of trail or exhaust, if you will, as it pasted between our line of sight to the Moon, causing the Moon to appear RED. Again at this point the heightened fear was disturbing and not coming from something that we saw, I guess it came more from what we didn't see, or understand. The entire episode could not have taken more than five minutes.
