Location: Todos Santos, bcs (Mexico),
Shape: Sphere
4:00 A.M. a large white light was seen above the tallest mountain east of Todos Santos at Lat.23.30 (Tropic of Cancer) and Lon. 110.W

There is too much to describe. We have a video tape with a duration of more than one hour. It was shot with a Sony 8mm CCD-Trv 46 with Night Shot on. This was shot hand held and although there is a lot of footage, much is out of focus or in process of zooming. The video is one uninterrupted take with the cameraman trying to follow the movement and the camera trying to auto focus. At times the objct appears to be a sphere that is transmitting various colors of light and is more organic in nature than metallic. Other times it appears to have a triangular shape, but it is difficult to say because it is transmitting so much light. At times the light eminating from the object was so bright that it illiminated the mountain top. At a point in time approximately 45 minutes into the take the viewers saw a dark smaller object rise from the mountain top and enter the bottom of the glowing sphere. Upon entering the sphere seemed brightened intensely.
