UFO over Popocatepetl, again:

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 unexpected events captured by merely accident, on several occasions.


Lights were seen again Monday, March 5, 2001 over Popocatepetl, and dozens of residents from local communities called radio stations to make this known, according to Radio ACIR in Puebla, a city 125 kilometers (72 miles) east of Mexico City.

According to the reports by Puebla radio stations, the alleged sighting could be seen in particular from an area near the volcano known for its accumulations of energy that interfere with the operation of compasses.

Eyewitness Guadalupe Carrillo told a local radio station that "the object had movement, passed over the volcano, turned around and rotated."

A resident of San Francisco Totlmihuacan pointed out that one of the lights remained fixed in the sky while another moved around it. Another person claimed to have captured it all on videotape and make it available to the public.

Popocatepetl has an elevation of 5,542 meters (18,288 feet) and is one of the places in Mexico where there is talk of suspicious lights and unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and a number of such reports have emanated from the mountain" since the current cycle of active volcanism began in December 1994.

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 ufologie@ufologie.net ?

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

Here are some pictures gathered from the webcam so far.


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.

In December 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.

In February 14, 2001, the CENAPRED live cams captured again an amazing event where a huge white cigar shaped ufo approached the volcano in a direct maneuver to hit the crater at relatively slow speed. Here are two extracts from the video images.

In February 22, 2001, the CENAPRED live cams captured again an UFO, shown underneath:
