UFOs spotted over the Iceland Volcano

Multiple UFO sightings were reported amidst the ash plume of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano in early April.  The UFOs were caught on camera during a time when most flights in parts of Northern Europe were completely halted.

According to many newscasts, the UFO presence has been recorded in the images coming from the area of the volcano. In one video a clear UFO is visible just in the core of the explosions and in the midst of the dark grey clouds.

What you can see in the following YouTube video is incredible:

Michael Schratt, Open Minds Aerospace Historian, analyzed the images and provided the following commentary analysis:

Recent video footage of anomalous objects seen in the vicinity of the Iceland Volcanic ash cloud have been explained as a “flock of birds”, or an experimental aircraft.  Both of these theories lack scientific evidence, and appear to be just another attempt by the main stream media to avoid dealing with “uncomfortable issues”. The explanation of birds seen near the immediate area of the volcanic ash cloud is highly unlikely for two reasons: #1, it’s well known that animals have an acute sense of awareness with respect to natural phenomena (reference earthquakes). Therefore, video footage of a “flock of birds” near the ash cloud days AFTER the original eruption defies logical reasoning. Any birds in the area would have departed hours PRIOR to the first blast. #2, any living creatures near the ash cloud would have been exposed to extreme levels of high heat which would certainly prove to be fatal.

The explanation of “experimental aircraft” also fails to address two fundamental issues: #1, any aircraft using turbo-jets, or turbo-fan engines for propulsion run the risk of getting into what is known as a “flameout” condition. This can happen to jet aircraft when the fuel/air mixture entering the combustion chamber is drastically reduced or starved. In this emergency condition, the engine can shut down completely causing a catastrophic failure, and loss of both the aircraft and crew. #2, any aircraft entering a volcanic ash cloud runs the risk of extreme damage to the jet engine turbine blades (see turbine blades of the A-10 in figure 1).

During a flight in 2000, a specially configured NASA DC-8-72 aircraft (see figure 2) inadvertently flew into a volcanic ash cloud. Upon further examination by mechanics, the aircraft clearly suffered massive degradation to the leading edge of the turbine blades (see figure 3). Per NASA technical report TM-2003-212030, the amount of damages to the aircraft by flying into a volcanic ash cloud totaled $3.2 million. Of course any classified experimental aircraft using electro-gravitics or a magneto-hydrodynamic propulsion system would not necessarily need to rely on conventional aerodynamics for lift. However, risking an American “Silver Bullet” in an unknown environment which could compromise the program seems highly unlikely.

About Maurizio Baiata

Maurizio is an investigative reporter, magazine editor and UFO researcher He started his journalistic activity in the late Sixties as a free lance journalist and then editor of several Rock Italian magazines, reaching the peak of his career as Editor in chief of "Rolling Stone" magazine’s Italian edition. In 1981 he moved to New York working as radio correspondent for the Italian state network RAI and then becoming editor-cultural page of the daily newspaper “Il Progresso Italo Americano”. Seven years later Baiata moved back to Italy and concentrated on UFO research, focusing on the Roswell incident. He produced many documentaries with large diffusion through all media and released the Autopsy Footage in 1995. In 1997 he published two books of the late Col. Philip Corso, “The Day After Roswell” and “Dawn of a New Age” (Corso’s original diary never published elsewhere). In Italy Baiata directed “Notiziario UFO", "UFO Network", “Dossier Alieni”, "Stargate"”Area 51” and “X Times” and two multimedia encyclopedias: “UFO Dossier X” and "Stargate - Enigmi dal Cosmo". He has presented at numerous lectures worldwide, including two appearances at the International UFO Congress in Laughlin.


  1. it just boggles my mind,how people could see this and try to explain it away,(flock of birds,weather balloon,swamp gas,etc.this is a perfect example of trying to convince people that this is a scool bus or etc.,when you know dammed well, it isn’t!it is a UFO!!!!!!,as it is an unidentified object!

  2. i agree with cassie…. what is the government and most of the world afraid of? I don’t understand why mainstream media stays away from this stuff!! There are way too many known witnesses to UFO’s, not to mention those that DON’T come forward for fear of being ridiculed. Something is going on and we- the world- have a right to know.

  3. all my life,i lived by do or don’t,come or go,black and white.no second guessing.i’ve never been a fool or alowed any one to take me for one.but i would be complete fool to beleave we are the only life in the universe.the gov.hides every thing,why?,they send out invitations of peace and shoot at them when they come.if you have an real event to share with people,you get gag order or disapear. my eyes may be getting older but what i see over that valcano was not a flock of birds.same gov. crap,different story.personaly,i would like to meet a people from another planet before i die.but i know i won’t if the gov. has any thing to do with it!for now,i settle for just beleaving in them.
