FEBRUARY 17, 1978, COCULA, JALISCO, MEXICO, MR. MORENO, MR. AGUILAR, MR. CORONADO:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Spanish author JJ Benitez reportedly told in 1999 that in Cocula, Mexico, on February 17, 1978, at 0200 a.m., three teachers, Mr. Moreno, Mr. Aguilar and Mr. Coronado were on their way back to town from a late dinner, when they noticed bright flashes of green, red and white light coming from a nearby hill.

They stopped their vehicle and got out to obtain a better look. They walked towards the lights, which appeared to be about 300 meters away. The light seemed to dim the closer they got to it. When they were about 20 meters from it, they noticed that it was now an opaque egg shaped object, about 15 meters in length. It appeared to have three antennae-like protrusions on the top. It now gave off a fluorescent white glow.

Curious, the three men approached the object even further and began to surround it. Suddenly, one of the men noticed something very close to him and signaled the other two. They all then saw in an apparently freshly dug ditch a short "robot-like" humanoid that appeared to be still digging. The being seemed to be wearing a tight fitting silvery outfit with a round helmet. The little man simply ignored the trio and kept digging.

Frightened, all three ran across a field, entered the vehicle and drove away at very high speed. The next day, they returned to the site and found numerous ground traces, including in the ditch.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Cocula, Mexico, on February 17, 1978, at 0200 a.m., three teachers, Mr. Moreno, Mr. Aguilar and Mr. Coronado were on their way back to town from a late dinner, when they noticed bright flashes of green, red and white light coming from a nearby hill. They stopped their vehicle and got out to obtain a better look. They walked towards the lights, which appeared to be about 300 meters away. The light seemed to dim the closer they got to it. When they were about 20 meters from the light, they noticed that it was now an opaque egg shaped object, about 15 meters in length. It appeared to have three antennae like protrusions on top. It now gave off a fluorescent white glow. Curious the three men approached the object even further and began to surround it. Suddenly, one of the men noticed something very close to him and signaled the other two. They all then saw in an apparently freshly dug ditch a short "robot like' humanoid that appeared to be still digging.
