1953
- In the early evening on or about this day, Salvador Villanueva, a taxicab driver, was trying to repair his broken-down car out in the country near Ciudad Valles, Mexicowhen he was joined by two short, human-looking men. They were only about four and a half feet tall, and they wore one-piece gray garments made out of corduroy that covered even their feet. They also had on wide, shiny black belts, metal collars, and small-black shiny boxes connected to the collars on the back of their necks. Under their arms they carried football-style crash helmets. Because it was raining, he invited them to shelter inside his taxi, where they had a conversation that lasted all night. They spoke Spanish with a strange accent. The spokesman eventually told him they were from another planet, which Villanueva scarcely believed, but he accompanied them to their craft. While walking there, he noticed that the mud puddles did not get their feet wet and that their belts glowed whenever the mud was repelled. The UFO was disc-shaped and looked like two soup plates joined at the rim, with a shallow dome on top with portholes. It rested on the ground on three spheres that acted like landing gear. He was invited inside, but declined to go. The two men climbed up some stairs to get aboard. Glowing white, the vessel zigzagged upwards, and then shot up vertically, making only a faint whistling sound. A 40-foot circle of broken bushes was left behind at the landing spot. It's possible the presence of the UFO may have caused his car to malfunction.
