'UFO' Spotted On Live Cam Over Elk Refuge Near Yellowstone: Aliens Monitoring Supervolcano Could Mean Eruption Is Imminent, Conspiracy Theorists Raise Alarm [Video]

Following reported sighting of a "UFO" hovering over the Elk Refuge near Yellowstone, UFO bloggers have raised alarm, saying that an uptick in UFO activity near the Yellowstone Supervolcano at the National Park in Wyoming could mean that aliens are preparing for a major eruption of the volcano.

The alleged UFO appeared for a few minutes in footage uploaded to YouTube on Thursday, April 28, by Kat Martin2016. It appeared as light passing in front of a live cam at the Elk Refuge.

According to Kat Martin2016, she was looking at live cams in the area when she noticed the mysterious light passing over the Elk Refuge in the middle of night. The YouTuber speculated that the light might have been a reflection from the headlights of a vehicle nearby.

"I was browsing some live cams and stopped in at the Elk refuge, and this happened in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of the night, at an Elk refuge near Yellowstone," Kat Martin2016 writes. "It is probably a passing vehicle that caused the reflection."

The YouTube user then dropped a hint about aliens knowing that members of the UFO community would take the message and run with it.

"I am sure some will think it is the handiwork of aliens and that the reflection is a tiny spaceship," she writes in the video description.

And as expected, UFO Sightings Daily's Scott Waring declared as soon as he saw the footage that the light was an alien UFO drone conducting surveillance flight over Yellowstone to monitor the volcano's activity.

"OMG! I knew it! It took less than one day for this to be taken and posted on a UFO site..."
According to Waring, UFOs are commonplace on wildlife live cams so the latest sighting at Yellowstone National Park was not unusual. In Waring's expert opinion, Kat Martin2016 was mistaken in her assumption that the mysterious object was just a light reflection.

"The shadows on the side of this object make me think it is a three dimensional object and not a reflection," Waring argues. "Alien drones often record data [...] in nature. This catch may be one of those drones."

Other UFO bloggers were more concerned about the implications of the suggestion that aliens are monitoring the Yellowstone Supervolcano. That aliens are monitoring the volcano should cause humans concern because it could indicate that aliens are worried the supervolcano could erupt, conspiracy theorists reasoned.

Referring to recent footage that shows an apparent uptick in activity at the volcano (see YouTube above) with ominous bright flashes and steam issuing from a geyser, UFO Sightings Hotspot raises alarm that "something weird is going on" at Yellowstone.

"Something weird is really going on there as a big flash (at 4.05 mark first video – left of the screen) comes out of one of the geysers," the blog warns.

The UFO blogger then speculates fancifully that the uptick in UFO activity over Yellowstone could be due to alien UFOs tapping "energy from the magma moving up underneath the ground."

The writer suggests that alien technology could be able to harvest and store energy obtained directly from hot magma.

"It's the same concept as what we see as lightning at the top of a volcano that's erupting, UFOs are quite often spotted around active volcanoes for that reason," the blogger explains further.

Volcanoes are UFO hotspots, according to conspiracy theorists

The aliens were flying a drone over the volcano to monitor its activity for predictive purposes, according to alien hunters.

Volcanoes, especially active ones, are considered UFO hotspots and UFO conspiracy theorists believe aliens often build UFO bases beneath volcanoes because the interior of volcanoes are inaccessible to humans.

For instance, UFO hunters claim that major volcanoes, such as Popocatepetl and Colima in Mexico, have large underground UFO bases. It is also believed there is a major government-alien UFO base beneath the Old Faithful geyser at Yellowstone.

The Inquisitr reported recently that a conspiracy theory has emerged online about an impending Yellowstone false flag event. According to rumors making the rounds in the conspiracy theory blogosphere, there is a sinister plan to induce an eruption of the Yellowstone volcano. The rumor, which apparently originated on the conspiracy theory-leaning website, The Common Sense Show, claims that a group was conducting "fracking style" activity near the supervolanco ostensibly with the aim of inducing an eruption. Another group was reportedly conducting experiments using "electromagnetic interference" to induce an eruption.

Footage captured on April 18 by a videographer named Shawn that appeared to show a UFO crashing at a spot near the supervolcano sparked speculation that the crash was linked to the alleged plan to stage a Yellowstone false flag operation (see YouTube videos below).

The ongoing conspiracy theory hysteria over the Yellowstone Supervolcano started online after geologists, such as Roger Bilham at the University of Colorado, warned that recent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions along the infamous Ring of Fire indicate that the world is going through a spike in seismic activity that raises concern about the risk of potentially catastrophic earthquakes and volcanic eruptions in the U.S. West Coast.

Footage uploaded online by Kart Martin2016 on April 15 showing a Yellowstone geyser bubbling with renewed life appeared to confirm fears.
