A mysterious glowing UFO was spotted hovering over the sea by a beach jogger on her morning run.
The hovering object was filmed by a woman in the Gulf of Mexico and shared on social media where many thought it was an alien spacecraft.
The sighting took place at Miramar Beach in the coastal city of Ciudad Madero in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas on February 1.
The video, shared by social media user ‘Patty Azuara’, shows a large glowing object hovering over the sea.
She captioned the footage: “Today as I was running on the beach at 7.12am and I spotted these lights.”
Viewers took to social media to comment on the video and some believed it was the bottom of the rising sun showing below the clouds while others insisted it was an UFO.
Facebook user Hilda Cruz wrote: “You are so lucky! Such a good view of the sighting!”
Carlos Lopez Hernandez said: “It is the sunrise through the clouds and the ocean breeze
Mauricio Izcariote commented: “It is called the sun. It’s the biggest star in our solar system.”
Local media said some people from the area believe a Martian base exists in the Gulf of Mexico which is why the area is protected from cyclones.
Ruben Goy Hernandez said: “People around there say there is a base on the ocean and that’s why there are no hurricanes there.”
Latino Meche said: “This is not new, Martians have been in the Gulf of Mexico for years!”
There have been no official reports explaining the mysterious glowing object.
