Fact Check:

A video shared widely since mid-Jan 2018 purports to show a Vertical UFO Alien Spotted Over Mexico. Interestingly, the Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) was shown as first ‘Alien sighting’ of 2018. The flying object seen in the video was in fact not identified, but the claim that it belongs to Aliens is certainly not true.

Origin of Video – Vertical UFO Alien Spotted Over Mexico

The video shows a driver capturing on camera an upright object flying in the air over sky in Mexico. YouTube channel Virality TV shared the video as first UFO sighting in Mexico, suggesting Alien watch. However, Facebook user Ufologo Pedro Ramírez, who calls himself UFOlogist, shared it in early Jan 2018. As a matter of fact, he suggested the tubular UFO hovering over Mexican sky is a proof of Aliens watching our activity in space.

Not Alien

Firstly, the vertical UFO object was captured on camera from a moving vehicle. So, it gives a false impression that the object is flying fast in sky. Once the video became popular online, YouTube user Louis aguilar posted a video showing similar object flying in San Antonio, Texas.

Intrigued viewers suggested the UFO in Mexico could be a drone in the US border region, a weather balloon or a man testing some kind of Jet Pack. As you can see in the images, the shape of the UFO remains same through the flight in the first place. Likewise, it resembles the shape of a Stormtrooper Helium Balloon, which are widely available as novelty gifts. In the video below, you can see couple of such balloons flying in sky. Furthermore, it was new year time, so it is probably the case.
