Location: Mexico (in jungle),
Shape: Disk
Duration:5-10 min.
I saw a disc shaped craft with lights underneath slowly moving with no noise across the horizon

While vacationing at the Mayan ruins with my father,we saw something strange.While relaxing at the pool of the resort that we we're staying at,we overheard some mexican kids shouting and pointing up above the tree line.The resort was in the jungle,in the Yucatan penninsula.We're talkin' deep jungle.Anyway we looked up and we both saw a round,circular object with red-orange lights underneath.It was moving in a straight line with no apparent sound or noise.We couldn't tell the exact altitude,but I would say it was around 200-300 ft.up in the air.It moved very slow and gave us plenty of time to watch it and talk about it(why didn't we have our camera?).About 10 people had gathered around and were watching it.It had a classic saucer shape with about 6 round lights in a ring underneath.It was about the size of a silver dollar held at arms length(comparitivly speaking).It finally disappeared over the trees,out of sight.When it was gone,the mexican bartender(who seeemed totally un-fazed by all of this)said that "they" fly around here all the time.He said they always head in the direction of the ruins.Although it was getting dark I ran down to the road to see if I could still see it.It was already gone but the bartender was right,the direction it was headed when we last saw it was towards the pyramids.If this was a hoax,it was a damn good one.The area that we were in was very much 3rd world,a lot of poverty.It was also during the off season for tourists,the hacienda that we stayed at was virtually empty.
