ALIEN hunters have been sent into a frenzy after they spotted what they believed to be a giant UFO leaving the mouth of a volcano in Mexico.
Eagle-eyed conspiracy theorists were watching the live camera footage of the Popocatepetl volcano, near Mexico City, Mexico, when they spotted a strange object passing over the mouth of the volcano. Prominent conspiracy theorist Scott C Waring spotted the object, which he claimed was a UFO of extraterrestrial origin.
By analysing the footage, Mr Waring says the supposed UFO was over 100 metres long.
Furthermore, the conspiracy theorist believes aliens have been using Popocatepetl, or El Popo as it is also known, as a base on Earth for thousands of years.
Mr Waring wrote on his blog ET Database: “Here is a great example of a triangle UFO passing over the mouth of Popocatepetl, a volcano in Mexico.
“It has been long believed that this volcano holds an underground alien base 5km below its surface.
“An ancient civilization of aliens that have existed there for tens of thousands of years.”
“If we compare the size of the UFO with the mouth of the volcano, we can find its true size.
“The mouth is about 600 meters across and this UFO is about 1/6 the size of the mouth, that’s 100 metres across!”
This is not the first time Mr Waring has claimed El Popo is home to extraterrestrials.
A similar video last year from YouTube channel UFO Mania showed a bright, curved light can be seen making its way up the side of the volcano before it suddenly disappears.
Mr Waring said of that sighting: “Here is an amazing sighting of a boomerang UFO coming out of a volcano in Mexico.
“The UFO slowly moves up from the side of the volcano, glowing powerfully as it continues to rise and disappear above the volcano.
“This is 100 percent proof that there is an alien base 5km below this volcano as many UFO researchers and myself believe.
“The UFO itself is about 40 percent the width of the mouth of the volcano. The mouth is 600 meters across, thus the UFO is 240 meters.”
He again reiterated his claim later in 2019 when two objects were supposedly seen near El Popo.

Mr Waring said: “The large UFO and the small UFO appear to actual fly into each other on purpose, as if they both were dropping off passengers and cargo with one another.
“Why? Because its been long believed by researchers like me that there is an alien base about 4-6 miles below the surface of this volcano.”
At 5,426 metres tall, Popocatepetl, which is 70 kilometres away from the capital Mexico City, is the second-largest volcano in North America, but experts say that it does not pose a huge threat to locals due to its usually dormant nature.
In 2017, Popocatepetl erupted for the first time since 2000 when ash was propelled a staggering three kilometres into the sky. Since then, there have been several eruptions.
