On June 18th 2013, Mexico’s Popocatépetl volcano erupted in a fiery display of rock, ash and lava rattling homes as far as 25 miles away. Because of warning tremors occurring over the preceding months, scientists studying the volcano expected its eruption to be imminent. What they didn’t expect, however, was the eerie footage they captured just a couple weeks prior.
On May 30 2013, a camera fixed on Popocatépetl captured two illuminated objects flying over the volatile volcano. One of the of the objects remains relatively stationary throughout the duration of the clip, while the other behaves in a manner entirely unexpected. The illuminated object can be seen soaring toward the summit of the volcano. As it approaches, it performs an about face, changing direction, and appears to descend directly into Popocatépetl’s crater. Even stranger, the air space above the volcano is a designated no-fly zone, which would seem to eliminate the possibility of any normal aircraft being the culprit.
What were these unidentified flying objects spotted over Popocatépetl? Could they be aircraft from an alien planet, investigating the imminently erupting volcano as an energy source? What is the connection between this UFO sighting and the volcano’s eruption only weeks later? It would seem that an interest in Earth’s natural wonders extends far past the scope just our planet.
