Some people believed that it could be a weather balloon due to its unusual shape.
This May 2, the strange activity in the sky was announced, it is an unidentified flying object (UFO) over Los Cabos in Baja California Sur, specifically in Cabo San Lucas, the phenomenon caused strangeness due to its shape, which caused air traffic to be paralyzed and restrictions on flying due to that presence, which was captured in a video that began to circulate on social networks in the early hours of this Tuesday.
The images were disseminated in the first instance by the Los Cabos Citizen Alert System through a live broadcast on its Facebook page, in which you can see the object that has a circular shape and seems to have its own intermittent light with blue and yellow. The events occurred at approximately 10:00 p.m. on Monday, May 1.
Likewise, at 11:15 p.m., Air Traffic Control notified in one of its reports that an aircraft that took off or landed in the City could not fly above 32,000 or 36,000 feet “due to military activities in search for unidentified object in Mexican territory”. Similarly, it is specified that NOTAM (Notice To Airmen) has not been issued, that is, a bulletin issued by the different aeronautical authorities to inform pilots about possible changes or restrictions at airports, in procedures as well as events along a route.
However, users of social networks shared more details of the restricted areas, which were north of the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) and west of the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA) for visual flights from the surface up to 12 thousand 500 feet. But one user reported that the most restrictive area was north of Toluca, west of the AICM from 0 to 30,000 feet.
For his part, the journalist Jaime Maussan explained that the new Law for the Protection of the Mexican Airspace applies in these cases, since with it the National Council for Surveillance and Protection of the Airspace was created; directed by the Federal Executive, which states that when an aircraft is not identified, it will be ordered to apply the Surveillance System established in Chapter III of said Law, where the corresponding Federal Agencies and Entities will be coordinated, to inhibit and counteract aircraft that are not identified (any aerial object that is in illegal operations or that puts national security at risk) for which the authorities will act in the interception and monitoring that derives from an air alert.
“Although at the moment a protocol for unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAPs) is not established, nor its textual presence in said regulatory document; any object in the airspace that engages in the conduct indicated in Article 10 may be intercepted. The Council It may hold extraordinary sessions at the request of any of its members; how could it be in this case with respect to the unidentified object captured over Los Cabos,” said Maussan.
