    Hmm..looks a bit CGI to me. Would a meteor ascend?

    I know what you mean about the CGI bit ... The sudden flare seems too regular and never seems to vary, as if it's something overlaid on the image (e.g., a video-editing highlighting).

    In principle, a meteor sufficiently distant and coming in at a shallow approach angle (relative to the camera's horizontal line of sight) might display the apparent trajectory we see in this video.

    The first thing that occurred to me is that it's an airplane climbing out after takeoff or possibly on approach for a landing.

    I believe the nearer / more prominent peak is the Popocatepetl volcano, and the lesser one is Popocatepetl's sibling volcano Iztaccíhuatl. On the other side of those peaks lies Mexico City. From an elevated position south of Puebla's city center a line projected to the 'right' (north) of Popocatepetl would extend to Mexico City's dense center (and its international airport) circa 40(?) miles distant.

    My best guess is that it's an aircraft climbing out from Mexico City's airport and heading east / southeast.

    There's low altitude atmospheric haze visible at the horizon. I've seen lighted aircraft self-'halo' themselves when flying above an haze layer between it and the observer (think of it as a sort of back-lit glory effect). However, I don't recall ever seeing such a back-projected halo flare so brightly or maintain such a regular appearance.

    The more paranormal suggestion would be some sort of earth light emanating from the area around Popocatepetl - possibly relating to the volcano per se or a minor earthquake occurring a few hours earlier that day.

    Agreed, the green flaming tail matches well.

    It need not be ascending; it could be simply passing overhead, or even on a shallow grazing angle towards the surface (which would explain the brightening).

    A quick search says they were available for domestic use at least as early as 2006, but they did not take off (heh) in sales until 2015.
