UFO spotted in Mexico? Only a meteor, experts say
A strange, orange-colored object soaring across the sky of Mexico has the Internet community intrigued about its origins.
The object, which was captured on video last month and surfaced recently, has twin trails of a bright orange flame emanating from its rear and apparently diving towards Earth. The video has racked up over 180,000 views on YouTube, a popular video-sharing service.
The unidentified object is gaining extra attention for a déjà-vu incident that occurred in faraway Greece. A similarly-shaped object was spotted in the Mediterranean country on the same day.
However, astronomical experts claim that it is probably a meteor burning up in the stratosphere, releasing a trail of debris in the process. Thousands of extraterrestrial rocks enter the Earth’s atmosphere every year, and most disintegrate due to atmospheric pressure.
