Is this a glowing rock, a UFO, or something else ? Image Credit: YouTube / Luis Andres Jaspersen
A short video clip showing a glowing object flying out of a volcano has been recently doing the rounds online.
Situated 70km southeast of Mexico City, Popocatepetl is one of Mexico's most active volcanoes.
Over the last 600 years it has seen at least 15 major eruptions and even today, it continues to remain active - spewing dust, rocks and molten lava into the air on a regular basis.
Most recently however, something else was spotted emerging from the volcano - a mysterious glowing white oval-shaped object that flew (or was perhaps thrown) high into the sky.
The anomalous object, which has since been dubbed a 'UFO' on social media, was recorded on a special camera that records activity at the volcano on an ongoing basis.
While some have hailed the footage as evidence of something otherworldly, others remain skeptical - instead suggesting that the object could simply be a blob of lava or a rock being expelled from the volcano - something that most likely happens all the time.
