|High contrast version|
There has been a claim of a UFO sighted at a current active volcano...this time on the live streaming web cam focused on Mexico’s Popocatepetl Volcano. Earlier on Sunday the web cam was no longer ‘live’ while the site displayed an image of the volcano. The image shows the date and time of the image, December 26, 2010, 17:20:18 (Mexico time). As of 3:15 AM, EST, the image is still on the site. CENAPRED web cam The unidentified object in question is in the upper right corner.
Honestly, it looks like a water spot on the lens...but the photo was posted on the internet by DNKP. Below is a current image from this morning. The anomaly is still there...so it is most likely NOT a UFO. Nonetheless, active volcanoes throughout the world have attracted UFOs in the past - Links to UFO sightings at volcanoes
Popocatepetl is one of Mexico's most active volcanoes. After almost 50 years of dormancy, "Popo" came back to life in 1994 and has since then been producing powerful explosions at irregular intervals. In the past centuries befor European invasions, large eruptions produced giant mud flows that have buried Atzteque settlements, even entire pyramids.
Volcán Popocatépetl, whose name is the Aztec word for smoking mountain, towers to 5426 m 70 km SE of Mexico City to form North America's 2nd-highest volcano. The glacier-clad stratovolcano contains a steep-walled, 250-450 m deep crater. The generally symmetrical volcano is modified by the sharp-peaked Ventorrillo on the NW, a remnant of an earlier volcano.
At least three previous major cones were destroyed by gravitational failure during the Pleistocene, producing massive debris-avalanche deposits covering broad areas south of the volcano. The modern volcano was constructed to the south of the late-Pleistocene to Holocene El Fraile cone. Three major plinian eruptions, the most recent of which took place about 800 AD, have occurred from Popocatépetl since the mid Holocene, accompanied by pyroclastic flows and voluminous lahars that swept basins below the volcano. Frequent historical eruptions, first recorded in Aztec codices, have occurred since precolumbian time.
