Mexico: UFO in a Mountain Crater?
News Agency) An alleged elongated object entered the crater of the Popocatepetl
Volcano, 65 kilometers distant from the Mexican capital, causing astonishment
and confusion among experts and the public alike.
On October 25 at 20:45
local time, a camera from the TELEVISA TV network that monitors activity in the
giant volcano captured the image and immediately unleashed a firestorm of
discussions. The object’s measurements would have been 1 kilometer long by 200
meters wide, flying at a speed greater than that of an airliner, according to
However, the majority of experts, like astronomer
Julieta Fierro, a renowned science popularizer, took a more skeptical
stance. Fierro believes that it cannot be said for sure if the object fell
within the crater or if it is in fact “a galaxy 20,000 million light years away.
It could be something incredibly distant moving behind the Earth,” she
A similar opinion was voiced by William Lee, a member of the
Mexican Academy of Sciences, who said it was “a video error, given that there
was no visible interaction between the object and the atmosphere and gases
emanating from the volcano.”
Raul Rivera of the Servicio
Meteorologico Nacional (National Weather Service) said it was “an object whose
composition is simply unknown to us.”
[A note from Prof. Ana Luisa
Cid: “Regarding the story of the cylindrical UFO in the volcano, it is worth
noting that it was recorded by the TELEVISA camera (not the same as the one used
by CENAPRED). I am pointing this out because some researchers have published
erroneous reports, thinking it is the same camera with the same specifications.
They further compound their error by saying CENAPRED takes photos every 30
seconds and then joins them to form a time lapse. The truth is that “CENAPRED
used an Pelco brand remotely controlled analog camera. It is a video camera that
takes pictures every 2 seconds approximately before placing them on the
Internet.” This information was directly provided to me by Ing. Gilberto
Castelán, responsible for monitoring maintenance and
Or it could have been a telescopic “hologram” that some ET civilization is using to explore our volcano systems from a nice, safe distance? Like from 50 to 100 light-years away?
Like what we plan to do in a primitive way using the “Square Kilometer Array?”
If a picture is worth a thousand words, the numerical value of a video is
incalculable, provided it is not a hoax. Prof. Ana Luisa Cid has very
kindly shared with us a video from the Mexico’s TELEVISA network showing the
precise moment at which a bright, cylindrical shape appears to plummet into the
smoking maw of 17,000 foot Popocatepetl on 25 October 2012. The volcano’s
eruption status is continuously monitored by Mexico’s CENAPRED agency.
Historically UFOs have been linked to volcanos, especially in South American, which on average reports more UFO activity than North America.
