Born in Mexico City, Carlos A. Guzmán developed a strong interest in UFOs after experiencing one of the largest UFO waves in Mexico, back in the summer of 1965, during which Mexican newspapers reported multiple sightings on a daily basis. Carlos received his B.A. in Business Administration from the National Autonomous University of Mexico in 1976 and his MBA at the University of the Americas in 1979. Professionally, he has worked with a number of transnational companies in Mexico, including Warner Lambert, Bristol-Myers, Sunbeam-Oster and presently with SCA Hygiene Products.
In 1977, Carlos attended “The First International UFO Congress” in Acapulco, Mexico, where he met many of the top UFO researchers of that time. Also he became a member of the legendary APRO (Aerial Phenomena Research Organization) as the representative for Mexico.
He has written articles for several international UFO magazines, such as Spain’s Stendek, Chile’s Center of Investigation in Rocketry and Astronomy, as well as the Mexican periodical Extraterrestrial Contact. His articles also appear in the Mexican magazine UFO Contact.
In July of 1991, Carlos appeared in a nationally-broadcast TV show about UFOs called “What Do You Think?” The program was aired live for 11 hours and ten minutes and received one of the highest ratings ever on Mexican TV. Afterward, also in 1991, he was interviewed by the two most important Spanish TV Networks in the U.S.A. – Telemundo and Univision. Since 1991 he has been director of the Center of Research for UFO Phenomenon (CIFEEEAC), whose mission is to collect and disseminate UFO research. Since 1992, he has served as MUFON´s State Director for Distrito Federal (Mexico City). Carlos was later appointed as MUFON’s National Representative for Mexico. In 1995, Carlos finished his first book titled Testimonios OVNI (UFO Testimonies). In 1996 he was the first Mexican citiizen to be invited to speak at the annual MUFON International UFO Symposium in Greensboro, North Carolina.
In 1997, he co-authored “The Lomas UFO Video in Mexico City -True or False?” – an expose of the famous hoax “Lomas del Chamizal UFO” video, which was supposedly recorded on August 6th, 1997. In 2001, Carlos published his 3rd book called Sindrome del Contactado (Contacte Syndrome) and in October of 2001 published Los OVNIS y la Aviación Mexicana (UFOs and Mexican Aviation). This latter book , in particular, received very high marks from the international UFO research community. In 2003, Carlos published the book Galería Extraterrestre (Extraterrestrial Gallery).He is currently working on several additional books about the ET phenomenon in Mexico. Because of his expertise and long experience in the field, Carlos appears very frequently on television and radio in his native country of Mexico.
UFOs Over Mexico: Encounters with Unidentified Aerial Phenomena is a revised, updated English translation of a classic work of UFO research, Ovnis y la Aviación Mexicana, by Carlos Guzman and Alfonso Salazar. This new English edition was prepared by authors Noe Torres of Texas and Ruben Uriarte of California. “This is not a case of simply translating the original work from 2001,” Torres said, “We essentially re-wrote the book, with cooperation from the authors, to make it more relevant to persons who are not familiar with Mexico’s history, geography, or culture. We condensed the book down a bit to focus on the strongest cases and added some of the cases that Ruben Uriarte and I have worked on ourselves – for example, three reported UFO crashes along the Texas-Mexico border. Also, the original book only covered cases through the year 2000. We went in and added more recent cases. So, in a way, this is an entirely new work.”
