The children who were in front of the Café ran to call Manuel Moura, an amateur photographer. Moura ran to his house to get his equipment. When he got back, the object was still stand still in the air, as the workers were still throwing rocks at it. He managed to take 4 photos of the object. After that, the object moved away at enormous speed in the direction of Santo Tirso and Paços de Ferreira, and disappeared. In total, the object was visible for about 50 minutes.

On November 3, 1973 at 04:45 P.M., a banker, his wife, their child and the nurse who takes care of the child were driving in the family's car towards Mexico City, and were on the road between Cocoyoc and Caxtepec. The weather was clear, with some light flocculent clouds strewing the sky.
The wife of the banker saw an object in the sky, at an altitude which they estimated to be of approximately less than 100 meters above ground-level. She told thereafter that the object was of rather round shape, that she drew the attention of her husband to the presence of the object, and that while the distance between them and the object decreased they could realize that it was not what they had initially thought: it was not a plane, neither a helicopter, nor even a competition balloon, which they had considered for a moment.
The banker stopped the car on the side of the road and the passengers went out to get a better look at the object. The banker thought about his camera, took it, and made a first photograph at this time, with the objective set to an aperture of 50 mm and the exposure time set to 1/250.
