As smoke begins billowing from the crater a light can be seen streaking across the screen from left to right behind the volcano.

‘metalsfero’ added: “The media and idiot scientists will say that it is a meteorite, idiots”.

‘audikon’ commented: “We all know that it (the volcano) is an alien headquarters, they only “close” the door to scare us so that nobody goes there”.
