UFO SIGHTING Lareto Mexico BCS Thursday night Sept 22nd 2005 about 9:00 to 9: 30 PM

My brother ((name deleted)) and I were driving through the central part of lower Baja Mexico on our way to Cabo San Lucas. This was a monumental endeavor never mind the fact that the two wheeler hauler/trailer was critically overloaded! Since the trailer was new and had new 8 ply tires my brother decided to pass on a spare and this was a mistake.

The temperatures during the day ran from 95 to 108 degrees and we got baked! A few times I told ((name deleted)) to slow down as he was pushing it and about 30 miles north of Lareto the rear right tire on the u-hauler melted. The first indication I had that something was wrong was when I heard that familiar and dreaded sound of a tire breaking down!

As soon as I felt the Ford Exloder we were in shake my brother was fighting the wheel to bring us to a pull over stop on the side of the road. One of those gravel pit side bars that humans seem to gravitate for with a variety of reasons and intentions.

Right away I ran a mental inventory and realized we did NOT have a spare for the trailer! Phil did a problem solution and I sat with the trailer like road kill waiting to happen and ((name deleted)) drove to Lareto to find help.

About an hour and a half later ((name deleted)) drove up with another car following him into the roadside rat trap. ((name #2 deleted)) told us not to worry that he had been in the "business" for 25 years! As he checked out our bad right tire on the trailer he told his friend to check the air pressure on the left side. ((name deleted)) and I did not pay attention as I was sick and he could only watch so much of it.

((name deleted)) told us he would take our rim to his shop to find us a tire and fix the bent rim. This was around eight o clock to eight-thirty. For about twenty minutes ((name deleted)) and I hung out and as I was looking out into the darkness I saw spotlight come out from what I first thought was a helicopter going real fast. I said to my brother, "Are they using a helicopter to look for illegal aliens or drug smugglers"? Thing was the light source was a square box as apposed to a round searchlight! The light source then did a sweep over the hills lighting up some hillsides and this was about 2 to 3 miles from where we were.

Then the light source seemed to zip straight away from me and I was looking towards the north west. It the seemed to turn to the left and at that point my brother and I were yelling at each other that we had to take in every second of this.

I could just make out a slivery pinpoint that was stationary in the sky for at least 20 to 25 seconds. Then it took off and all I could see was a thin vapor trail. However this was a vapor trail that was different from any I had ever seen. It was heavy and dense and as it started to dissapate it started to form a long egg shape/oval type balloon!

It was then I noticed a shiny glint coming from the vehicle. Almost like some had a silver knife at a camp ground and the sun reflected off it as you looked down from a switchback or peak of a mountain.

Right away I thought I was looking at some kind of inter-planetary space shuttle type vehicle! My brother was also in a state of near hysteria as the vapor trail continued to expand and for 8 to 10 minutes it continued to expand as it dissapated.

The pin point silver object seemed to have left for a journey into space!

((name deleted)) and I talked, ranted and raved about what we had seen and what it could be or mean. I do know that I did see this light coming out from a vehicle that I thought at first was a helicopter but it had a square light source and ended up taking off like a space shuttle only NOT from a launching pad strapped to 3 rocket engines!

My brother and I will always be convinced we witnessed a UFO and when ((mechanic)) and friends returned they told us they had seen the "strange" balloon type light that lit up the sky! They all told us they had NEVER seen anything like it before!!
