Footage captured during the Christian period shows a strange glowing light hovering above Mexico’s famous volcano Popocatepetl. The footage sparked a furious debate in the online UFO community after skeptics challenged enthusiasts who declared that the light, which moved erratically in the sky above the volcano, was an alien UFO and that frequent sightings of UFOs in the vicinity of Popocatepetl prove that extraterrestrial beings are monitoring Earth.
A furious debate was sparked when some skeptics dismissed the suggestion that the light was a glowing alien UFO, and suggested instead that it was a flare caused by smoldering material ejected from inside the volcano or some other related atmospheric activity around the volcano.
The footage, which went viral online during Christmas, shows a light moving in an erratic pattern over the volcano in Mexico. The light suggested an alien UFO visitation to enthusiasts who noted it was not the first time that a UFO phenomenon in the form of a glowing rod or orb has been seen hovering over Popocatepetl.
Popocatepetl has a long history of sightings of mysterious glowing orbs and long cylindrical or cigar-shaped UFOs. For instance, in October, 2015, UFO enthusiasts reported sighting strange lights floating above the volcano.
UFO hunters claimed at the time that the lights were glowing UFOs flown by aliens visitors monitoring the Earth, including geothermal activity in the volcano.
In May, 2013, footage emerged online showing a UFO approaching Popocatepetl. When the UFO came close to the volcano, it slowed down and appeared to take a sharp turn, and as if under intelligent direction, it flew straight into the hot volcano crater.
