Mexico’s Popocatepetl volcano spewed a large column of ash and vapor Tuesday afternoon. The eruption took place at 16:40 PM (22:40 GMT) and reached a height of 3,500 metres (11,482 feet), according to Luis Felipe Puente, the national coordinator of civil protection.
Mexico City’s volcano next door, Popocatépetl, erupted three times Sunday. (Note: You are not losing your hearing. This webcam video is silent. You’re welcome.)
El volcán Popocatépetl presentó en las últimas 24 horas, tres explosiones que generaron columnas de más de 800 kilómetros sobre el cráter, una de ellas, la mañana de este domingo a las 9:38 horas.
Here’s a video view from the other side of the mountain:
Popocatépetl blew its top again Monday afternoon and a webcam captured it all.
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.
Karma or koincidence?
