Although the details of the craft are not clear from the footage, it appears to be triangular in shape, with a purple glow underneath.
The Open Minds website suggests that theories of drones, paragliders, and plastic bags have been put forward, but these are dismissed by witnesses due to the fact that the object was too large and was seen hovering for nearly two hours.
It also seems unlikely that the video is a hoax due to the presence of the congressman, and the fact that this was a professional TV crew filming for ‘Alto Al Crimen’ (Crime Stoppers), a programme related to the reporting of serious crime.
The sighting remains unexplained.
