From Televisia comes this report of a gigantic (mile-long?) cylindrical UFO/OVNI flying down INTO Popo. The UFO’s descent was captured by a 24/7 volcano cam that’s fixed on the peak, which is south of Mexico City.
Televisa, a Mexican media company, said Friday it may have captured video of a brightly lit, cigar-shaped UFO appearing to plunge right into the top of Popocatepetl, an active volcano in Central Mexico, which experienced numerous explosions that produced ash clouds on Oct. 25, the day of the reported UFO event, reports Open Minds TV.
According to International Business Times, Televisa caught the alleged UFO image on a fixed camera that is used to monitor the volcano’s daily activity, located about 40 miles south of Mexico City.
While some may think this was an amazing UFO event, there’s a more likely conventional explanation.
“There’s a tendency to quickly sign off on the video’s legitimacy. The problem is that, at this moment, we don’t have an exact pedigree detailing the video’s original source and the hands through which it has passed,” said former FBI Special Agent Ben Hansen.
“It seems fairly obvious that the audio of the rumbling volcano accompanying the news story was dubbed in,” Hansen, the lead investigator of the Syfy Channel’s “Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files” series, told The Huffington Post in an email.
“My gut instinct also tells me there is something ‘off’ with the image of the object,” Hansen said. “It seems almost superimposed on the volcano video, as if it’s in the foreground and not by the volcano. There’s a slight shadow around it as well, which leads me to believe some sort of embossing effect may have been used with computer editing software in an attempt to give it the illusion of dimensionality.”
