A UFO hunter claims that recent footage showing a fleet of bright orb UFOs swarming around Mexico’s active Popocatepetl volcano is probably the most convincing UFO footage that has emerged in recent times.
According to UFO Sightings Daily’s Scott C. Waring, footage showing and eruption of Mexico’s Popocatepetl volcano, captured by Webcams de Mexico at 12:12 a.m. local time on June 19, also shows a fleet of bright orb UFOs swarming around the volcano.
Webcams de Mexico is a network of live cameras that monitor Mexico’s major active volcanoes, including Popocatepetl and Colima.
“I have been watching this volcano for over five years and have caught a few UFOs here and there,” Waring wrote a June 24, 2016 blog update, “but this is the most extraordinary video from the live Mexico volcano cam that I have ever seen.”
“Here we see over ten of them flying around,” he continues.
“I believe the only reason these UFOs can be seen is that at this moment, the camera had on its infrared mode, which means it can see things the human eye cannot.”
“This is the most extraordinary [UFO] video from the live Mexico volcano cam that I have ever seen… ten of them flying around.”
However, a UFO investigator has dismissed the claim that the footage shows UFOs flying around the active volcano.
Scott Brando, who manages the website Ufoofinterest, which investigates sighting claims by online UFO hunters, explained that experience shows such “anomalies” are usually dust or insects flying in front of the camera lens.
“It’s a night-vision/infrared webcam, so it’s more sensitive to small light source or bugs crossing the camera lens,” he told Express. “For example dust by eruption causes the same effect. Dust near the camera lens is brighter; the furthest debris is less bright.”
Analysts say that the association of alien UFOs with volcanoes in popular UFO folklore could have roots in ancient mythical traditions that linked volcanoes with divine visitors from the skies.
Sky gods are closely associated with volcanoes in the world’s religious traditions.
For instance, the word “volcano” is derived from the name of the Roman god Vulcan, the deity of ancient blacksmiths. Ancients identified volcanoes as forge of the sky gods. Hot lava was believed to be caused by the god Vulcan forging thunderbolts in his smithy’s workshop.
