In the video, a large cylindrical craft laid on the beach not far from the Atlantic Ocean. Two people in long, flowing faded green clothes began walking toward the ship. As they stepped closer, the comparison between the size of the people and the ship gave perspective of just how large the craft was. The two people were still far away, but based on the depth between them and the craft, it must have been the size of a small basketball gym, with enough space on the inside to hold plenty of luggage, or whatever else would be needed for such a long trip. It consisted of two discs that looked like they could rotate on top of each other. It appeared to be above the ground by a few yards, but because it was below the line of vision of the camera, it was impossible to tell if it was on a stand of some sort, or if it was hovering.
The two men were waving in the direction of the ship, as if trying to draw the attention of the pilot or passengers on the inside. Nothing happened immediately in reaction to the attempt to communicate, so they both sat down on the sand and began speaking to each other in a language that sounded something like Arabic.
Mario never could tell the difference between all the different African or South West Asian languages. His mother, on the other hand, studied all the major cultures of the world, from modern day Native Americans all the way back to Ancient Egypt. Mario wished he could consult with her now to translate what the two men were saying, but their conversation was abruptly cut short.
Just as one of the clean-shaven men turned to yell something to the person behind the camera, smoke was blown out of the top of the ship. Mario could hear a sound similar to a large spray bottle shooting out water. Both men in the video jumped at the sound. They rose to their feet. Backing up toward the camera, they did not look away from the smoky mist. They acted as if it were an animal recoiling to attack. A couple lights showed up in the smoke above the spacecraft as the men left the frame of the camera. There were many characters creating a formation that looked like strange writing in the smoke. The smoke was moving in the same way that gases always do, making the writing difficult to make out.
Although Mario was never very skilled in African languages, he recognized what he was viewing. Mario used his knowledge passed on to him from his mother while he was growing up. Based on his mental database which he had constructed from watching her, the only written language that he could think it to be was ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs.
