Two saucers seen at Mayan ruins of Uxmal, Yucatan, Mexico.

This happened in December of 1977, ans as far as I know no one has ever reported it, but I saw in the database that there was a sighting in exactly the same place on May 23, 2003, so thought I would report it. Five us went to the light show at Uxmal in Yucatan, which took place at about nine in the evening. There were about fifty people there. During the show a disc appeared in the air about 50 yards to the right of where the audience was seated. It was about 80 to 100 feet across. It revolved slowly, counterclockwise as seen from below. It was no more than 100 feet off the ground. There were yellow and orange lights around the outside of the disc. When we first saw it, there were things that looked like long thin neon tubes hanging from the edge of the disc. They changed color, and were retracted into the edges of the disc, as it spun around. The top side of the disc was slightly domed, and gave off a red glow. As we watched the disc moved forward, and gained altitude. Then we noticed that there was another one, very high overhead, also rotating and giving off the orange and yellow lights around the rim. We watch the first one climb and then join the other one, and they both moved off toward the west in the sky, until they were so far away we lost sight of them. Some people may have actually thought that it was part of the light show. After it was over everyone moved out of there as fast as possible. The five of us who were together talked about it afterwards, and even drew some pictures. No one had a camera; as far as I know no one else that was there took any pictures. This was twenty-five years ago but we still talk about it when we run into each other.
