A UFO has supposedly been seen flying into one of Mexico’s largest volcanos, leading to theories aliens are using it as a base.
Eagle-eyed conspiracy theorists were quick to spot a white object, which some have claimed was a UFO, falling into the mouth of Popocatepetl, near Mexico City. The sighting was made on webcams which constantly monitor the 5,426 metre tall volcano, colloquially named El Popo.
In the video, which was originally uploaded to YouTube by Esmeralda Martinez, a white object looks as if it is heading into the mouth of El Popo.
Alien hunters were quick to spot the object, with some now claiming extraterrestrials are using the volcano as a base.
Prominent conspiracy theorist Scott C Waring wrote on his blog ET Database: “This is a great discovery of several UFO around the famous Mexican volcano Popocatepetl.
“One of the UFOs is seen leaving the mouth of the volcano and shooting straight up into space. Another comes down and enters the mouth of the volcano. Absolute proof of what we UFO researchers already knew, there is a alien base 5-6km below this volcano.
“An entire alien city of many species living there.”
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.
