Flaming V-Shaped UFO in Brazil, Horse-Shaped One in Mexico

Here’s this week’s UFO wrap-up: reports and a video of a flaming V-shaped UFO came from both Brazil and Argentina while a sharp-eyed woman watching a volcano erupting in Mexico spotted a horse-shaped object hovering and watching with her. Not a bad week.

This video of the flaming V UFO over Brazil was only uploaded this week, but it was reported to have occurred on January 4.


While it appears at first to be V-shaped, it may also be a disc with flames shooting off of its sides. The directional changes are also interesting. Reports of a similar sighting were made in Frias, Argentina, by multiple witnesses who said they had captured video on their cellphones, but the Brazil incident is the only one that seems to be available. While some believe it’s a meteor, the movements suggest to others it’s something that is being controlled.

The horse-shaped UFO was seen near the Colima volcano, about 80 miles south of Guadalajara in western Mexico. Colima has been very active in late 2014 and early 2015.


Loyola Quintanilla Rosas saw the UFO while recording an eruption and decided it looked like a horse or something close to one.

When I first saw it, I thought it looked like a horse. It had a very large body and seemed to be an animal. It had a thin top, a bulging middle and two extremities at the bottom. But the legs weren't moving so it clearly wasn't a modern-day Pegasus. And it sure as hell wasn't a bird.

Does it look like a horse to you?

Watch your language, young lady! That could be the reason why the UFO disappeared immediately after she saw it. As usual, a spokesperson for Mexico's Civil Protection of the Ministry of Interior said it was most likely a drone and they will look into it.

In the meantime, UFOs continue to look into active volcanoes in Mexico like Colima and Popocatepetl. And not all fireballs are proven to be meteors. What do you think about these sightings?

If you want to make the next UFO report, hang out near volcanoes and nuclear plants and have your cameras ready!
