Lights, Lanterns and UFOs!
Lots and lots of people are seeing strange lights all over the world. Here in…
Weird? An unknown object (UFO) filmed entering the active volcano Popocatepetl in Mexico.
The luminous object was captured by a monitoring camera on the 11th October. Air traffic control seem to suggest it’s just a plan or some kind of atmospheric phenomena!
Popocatepetl is 43 miles (70 km) southeast of Mexico City, from where it can be seen regularly, depending on atmospheric conditions. Until recently, the volcano was one of three tall peaks in Mexico to contain glaciers, the others being Iztaccihuatl and Pico de Orizaba. In the 1990s, the glaciers such as Glaciar Norte (North Glacier) greatly decreased in size, partly due to warmer temperatures but largely due to increased volcanic activity. By early 2001, Popocatepetl’s glaciers had become extinct; ice remained on the volcano, but no longer displayed the characteristic features of glaciers such as crevasses. Magma erupting from Popocatepetl has historically been predominantly andesitic, but it has also erupted large volumes of dacite. Magma produced in the current cycle of activity tends to be a mixture of the two. [Wikipedia]
