There is a rise in sightings of UFOs during volcanic eruptions and approaching earthquakes. Online conspiracy forums are filled with claims of UFO bases inside volcanoes and UFO sightings before an earthquake.
Photos and videos of UFOs emerged showing UFOs all over exploding volcanoes and around the area that would experience tremor.
Wild claims related to this subject include UFOs monitoring seismic activity or triggering volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.
Just last month, an alleged UFO sighting video surfaced online showing a UFO over an erupting Colima volcano in Mexico. Most viewers described the strange object as a cigar-shaped UFO, much like the same to the ones seen around Mexican volcanoes on live cams.
Nigel Watson, UFO Investigations Manual author, offers a more scientific explanation. UFO expert Watson noted the linking of Earth energies with UFO activity in the 1960s. In the late 1970s, scrutiny of more rigorous investigation took place, explained Watson.
Watson referred the book “Space-Time Transients and Unusual Events,” by Michael Persinger and Gyslaine Lafreniere. He said that it puts forward the evidence suggesting that tectonic strains in the crust of the Earth give sufficient energy to create columns of electrical energy and bright balls of light in the atmosphere.
The Tectonic Strain Theory (TST) offers an explanation of UFOs appearing at window areas or particular hot spots, according to Watson.
Watson added that Michael Persinger suggested the EM fields of these UFOs could trigger trance states or hallucinations in people who are close to them. Watson further explained that this might be the reason for many stories on strange encounters, such as alien abductions, that are experienced after a witness has seen the light in the sky.
