I've seen this sort of effect before.....its usually caused by a camera trying to focus in on a very distant point of light. Its basically just blurred....some of the black area is simply the inside mechanism of the camera, and I'd imagine there is a couple of tiny hairs on the lens. In fact if you squint your eyes very tightly while staring at a brightly lit plane white white wall just right you can get a similar effect from your lashes as your eye becomes unfocused. Now what the light is in the first place is hard to say. I noticed the kid say that there was smoke coming from it, which suggests a Chinese Lantern...also the "orbs" coming off of it suggest that it was a Chinese Lantern that had caught on fire and started to disintegrate (a common occurance). The military plane suggests another possibility though. The Filmer said that it was a big bomber type....which is not the type you would send out to Inspect an unidentified intruder into our airspace. It is the type that might be dropping parachute flares though. Then again the plane could have simply been a coincidence.

It's nothing more than a light, all the spinning and shadow effects are the result of a combination of atmospheric conditions and digital zoom artifacts.
This is very new to me, and very far out, but if anything explains what this is, this sure does, this is an excellent video that clearly relates to the 2 videos of this thing. It explains it all, incredible find, just down right incredible.
None of these photo technical experts found any evidence of a hoax in the films and footage shot by Diaz. Field investigations were performed also by Prof. John E. Mack of Harvard, who spent three days in Tepoztlan and extensively talked to the witness, his family and local eyewitnesses.
We were able to verify that over 50 % of the population of the city of Tepoztlan, in which Diaz lives, about 12.000 people, saw the very same type of object filmed and photographed by Diaz, a fact confirmed by the mayor of Tepoztlan. The Air Traffic Controllers of Mexico City’s International Airport confirmed on camera regular UFO sightings over the area of Tepoztlan. Several researchers who visited the place, including Dr. Roberto Pinotti, saw the very same ship Carlos filmed and photographed.

It looks like a lamp post. Why don't these guys take a video of the ground so that we can have a reference of the object that they are filming?

Looks like a normal, everyday lantern flying through the air.
