Popocatepetl Volcano in Mexico Sparks Fresh UFO Alert [VIDEO]

UFOs swoop around a smoking volcano in Latin America in footage that has caused a stir on local television news.
One flying object appears to dive into the red hot cauldron of the Popocatepetl volcano in Mexico
Three moving lights appeared in the sky around the active volcano. Black and white footage of the volcano outside Mexico city sparked the interest of UFO-spotters and was broadcast on Foro TV.
Speculation that the moving lights were really meteors from a shower of space rock were dismissed by ufologists.
Popocatepetl has literally become a hotspot for UFO sightings, with some theories claiming the site might have a special significance for extraterrestrials.
So popular is the volcano as an alleged intergalactic meeting point that a media firm has a camera permanently trained on the summit.
Last year, footage captured a cigar shaped object apparently entering the volcano.
Expert analysis by the International Astronomical Union ruled out a meteorite, as well as the likelihood of it being a piece of debris falling back to earth after being spat out of the volcano. The most recent eruption was as recently as last year.
Extended study of the mystery footage concluded the cigar-shaped UFO was an elaborate hoax.
