Initial data

Initial information from sources or from an eyewitness
Incident date: 
вулкан Попокатепетль

Ufologists have long noticed a strange connection between volcanoes and UFOs. UFOs like to fly over volcanoes or fly inside the vent.

It is assumed that there are passages underground inside some volcanoes, where alien bases are located and alien ships use these passages to safely and as unobtrusively as possible for people to carry out scheduled sorties.

A new video shows how a black elongated unidentified object flies to the mouth of the volcano Popocatepetl - one of the largest volcanoes in Mexico, and once above the vent, dissolves into air.

The UFO was captured by a webcam that constantly monitors the activity of this volcano with a height of 5426 meters. The video was posted online on the Mexican ufo YouTube channel "Enigmas en la Historia Ovnis" back in 2013, but for some reason only recently got into the English-speaking part of the Internet and was distributed in social networks.

Objects in motion, captured on a long exposure

Most often this artifact is called skayfish if the lens gets a passing bird or insect. It is based on the discrepancy between the speed of the video and the frequency of the flapping of insect wings. Essentially, each video drops a few strokes of the wings of an insect, which when viewed looks like "arrow", provided with long protuberances. The motion of the insect by its translucent body seems to "boom" and vibration of the wings give the appearance of bumps.

Deliberate falsification

This version includes any of falsifying, imitating unexplained phenomena as of: pranks, flash mobs, fake news, spoof of the witnesses, staging, etc.

There are many ways of scrap materials to make something like a Ghost or a flying saucer without using video and photo montage.

A handmade object, made for joke, prank or direct imitation of mystical creatures or events can be mistaken for unexplained not only pictures and videos but in reality.

Also in this section include various pranks and flash mobs, aimed at the simulation of NOF.


In connection with the peculiarities of the bird in the photo you can capture the moment when a normal bird will resemble the shape of a "classic" UFO.

Versions testing, their confirmation or refutation. Additional information, notes during the study of materials

Based on the initial frames, this is a bird flying in the frame. Her silhouette is lengthened and blurred due to her fast movement and low camera frame rate.

Probably, the video was processed and was "cropped" at the moment of the "flight into the mouth". It is necessary to find and study the original video.
