Unexplained UFO phenomena are caught on video every day, but it is rare for two strangers to record the same object at the same time from two separate angles. For that reason, the team is captivated by “the mothership videos” – a pair of recordings that appear to show a large, flying craft dispensing dozens of smaller crafts in the skies above Mexico.
Ryder, Ben and James head south of the border to meet with the two witnesses who filmed this mysterious airborne object. The team first meets with Pedro Hernandez, a Mexico City resident who noticed the craft in the sky while riding the bus. While Pedro can’t explain what he recorded, he feels the object was clearly from another world. The team then meets with Alfredo Carrillo, the other witness who recorded the supposed spacecraft. Alfredo attests that he was shooting a commercial airline when he accidentally discovered the mysterious airship. Like Pedro, Alfredo recalls seeing smaller objects shoot out of the craft and explains to the team that what he saw can’t be from this planet.
In their conversation, Alfredo indicates to the team that he believes the craft may be linked to the local, active volcano Popocatépetl. Ryder, Ben and James wonder what would draw alien life to an active volcano and decide to journey to Popocatépetl to investigate. The team makes it to the peak, but the investigation is cut short when James encounters gunshots and wild dogs. Luckily, Ben is able to collect some samples from the volcano’s ash cloud before the team escapes to safety.
After descending Popocatépetl, the team chooses to follow a new lead — a video shot by the Mexican Air Force that appears to show several UFOs flying over Mexican airspace. Ben and James explain that some skeptics believe the glowing orbs seen in the video are actually oilrigs on the horizon. In order to set the story straight, the team climbs aboard an airplane to recreate the event for themselves.
Ryder, Ben, and James fly to the exact spot where the Mexican Air Force recorded the glowing orbs, but are unable to see the oilrigs on their thermal cameras at that location. It is not until they fly much closer to the objects that the team finally makes visual contact, making Ryder and James highly skeptical of the oilrig theory.
After discussing their findings, the team meets up with famous Mexican journalist/ufologist Jaime Maussan, who unveils the corpse of a small, unidentified creature he believes may be the body of an extraterrestrial. Jaime indicates that this bizarre being was captured outside of Chichen Itza, an area known to have connections to alien life.
Harboring this new knowledge, the team heads to the pyramid of Chichen Itza to perform their final night investigation. Ryder is startled when she hears a voice-like sound at the pyramid’s apex, but the real danger occurs when James and Ryder have a standoff with a puma at the jungle’s edge. Finding little at Chichen Itza, the team returns to Los Angeles to analyze footage and draw conclusions on whether Mexico is truly being visited by extraterrestrials.
