Eerie footage shows a large object in the sky above the central Mexico volcano Popocatepetl. A video has emerged showing a strange object floating in the sky above a famous volcano in central Mexico.
The cigar-shaped object appears to be large in size and upon closer inspection is seen to be surrounded by strange lights.
The video was uploaded by Science website Mister Enigma, which regularly collates sightings of UFOs onto YouTube.
It claims the footage was filmed on May 3 2015 over the Mexican volcano Popocatepetl, located 43 miles south east of Mexico city.
Mexico has seen several high profile UFO sightings in recent years including one uncovered by journalist Jaime Maussan.
He found Mexican Air Force pilots showing infrared video footage taken during a military air patrol against drug smuggling on March 5, 2004.
In it at least 11 very hot "spheres" are seen moving irregularly and at great speed.
The objects could not be seen with the naked eye, and neither the crew on board nor ground personal confirmed any radar contact with the objects in question.
