UFOs Photographed Over Erupting Mexico Volcano:

The long awaited eruption of Mexico's gigantic volcano Popocatepetl ("Smoking Mountain" in old Nahuatl language) that took place Monday, December 18, 2000, brought not only fear and uncertainty but also a unexpected event captured by merely accident.

The report says: "On 12.21.2000 the main headlines of local newspapers Milenio and Extramex present a photograph of an unknown luminous flying object over the erupting volcano Popocatepetl located near from Mexico City and Puebla. The spectacular photograph taken by reporter Alfonso Reyes last Tuesday 19 at 6:10 AM while making a report of the violent awakening present a bright luminous object that contrast with the black clouds of smoke emanated from the volcano crater. The photo was taken in a 20 seconds exposure time and a 24 mm angular lens according to Mr. Reyes testimony. However he did not saw actually the flying object and was until the development of the film that he discovered what the camera captured. Due to the long exposure time the camera captured the luminous descending trajectory of the object that seems to make a quick turn into the crater direction. The possibility of a meteor was discarded considering the described trajectory of the object and also no airplane or helicopter were present in that place for obvious reasons." However, it might have been a firefly. Click to enlarge
This is not the first time that strange unknown objects have been seen flying over this volcano, there are a number of stories of visual observations. In June 29, 1999 the surveillance camera of the CENAPRED, the government agency for disasters prevention was monitoring Mount Popo taking pictures at time intervals. At 1:20PM the camera captured a strange disk shape dark object very near from the volcano crater and emerging among the smoke clouds. No explanation was given by the agency at the time but amateurs continued to gather images of objects from the webcam. Click to enlarge

In February 2001, other images from this volcano had been published.


In 2001, I wrote:

Few people have noticed that the CENAPRED Webcam is available online.

Click here to watch for UFOS for yourself, and may I kindly ask that if you witness UFOS, you save the picture (right click it with your mouse) and send it to me at ?

Please take note that the fixed small colored light you will see in the night are merely stars.

The latest news on the volcano are here.

Here are some pictures gathered from the webcam so far.

As of 2004, I had received hundreds of images.

And the most simple solution appeared on some of these images, when the UFOs were just a little closer so that their true nature appeared: insects.
