UFO researchers who claimed to have found photos of a nuclear mushroom cloud on Mars have released a video claiming to be a "cigar-shaped" UFO hovering over a Mexican volcano.

YouTube channel UFOvni Disclosure says the large thin object was snapped high above the Mexican volcano Popocatepetl, on Saturday.
The still image of the strange UFO appears to have three bright lights around it.
Last month, when the Calbuco volcano erupted in Chile on April 22, footage emerged on YouTube of a strange UFO made up of what looked like two connected spherical lights.
However, this was quickly dismissed by sceptics as being a drone filming the eruption.
Yet, there have been several reported "cigar-shaped UFO" sightings in the past six months over North America and Mexico, according to alien-hunter websites.
The online Mutual UFO Network witness reporting database has six 'cigar-shaped' reports since last October, including two separate ones in Georgia, one sighting of three UFOs at Omaha, Nebraska, plus others at Charleston, West Virginia, and between Austin and Dallas in Texas, all in the USA, and in, Ontario, Canada.
Last October, UFO spotters posted footage of what they described as two cigar-shaped UFOs on the NASA live feed of the International Space Station.
And in Janaury solar UFO-ologist Myunhauzen74 posted on YouTube moving footage of "a giant rod-shaped UFO flying in “near the sun” allegedly taken from NASA’s helioviewer camera.
Even Glasgow, Scotland, has been affected with Kick Ass writer Mark Miller reporting "a vast speeding cigar-shaped object" at 1am on New Year's Day.
Sceptics dismiss the sightings as photographic and video anomalies or other objects like drones.
