There is no reason to believe that this video is fake, but it is strange that the person making it thought so little fo the incredible UFO outside the plane that he simply panned away from it. For this reason, graded C.
This very detailed sighting report includes some unusual observations of sounds. Could many of these triangular objects be ours, such as Whitley Strieber describes in his book the Grays?

Hopefully this is not a warning of more intense volcanic activity. However, objects are routinely seen around volcanoes such as Popocatapetl in Mexico, and there is generally no subsequent increase in activity.
For years, UFOs were frequent visitors to the Mexico City International Airport, and now Latin American UFO Investigator Scott Corralles reports that they came back in 2010, most recently in the form of a glowing blue object that hovered over the airport and was observed, as were the others, by many aviation professionals.

If these are ordinary object, why don't they just say so? Two reasons: first, the are not allowed to propaganize the American public and therefore cannot lie; second, they are not allowed to admit the objects are unknown until the military says they aren't dangerous, which they will not do. Thus the silence.

Could be something unusual, could also be something on a distant hill. Too large to be an airborne lantern.

Creating a formation such as the one pictured in a rice paddy without breaking the rice stems would probably be impossible.

This video is very convincing, but it could be a viral for an alien-related horror movie being made of 'found' video like Blair Witch or Paranormal Activity. Graded B for the time being, at least.

Ecuador has released all of its UFO files--really, all of them, unlike many other countries.

An interesting photo. Of course, it could as easily be made of rubber or ceramic, but the whole presentation has a feel of authenticity--as a good hoax would, too, of course. For this reason, we cannot grade this A, but we can give it a grade of B until and if evidence of a hoax emerges.

Werner Herzog was allowed to film 6 days in Chauvet Cave, which was discovered in southern France in 1994. Many of the creatures depicted in the cave could only be found thousands of miles south, in central Africa, when the paintings in the cave were created 24,000 to 32,000 years ago, and some of them are of creatures entirely unknown. The public is not allowed in the cave due to the fragility of the art, and the film's release next April is one of the first extensive showings of its contents.

They come in like this every day from all over the world. Once, this story would have stunned the entire planet. Now, it's completely ordinary. Why? Because we have no idea what they are, and we've lost interest in the secret! Well done, visitors, you've got what you want: total openness and complete secrecy.

This is probably a genuine photo, and quite inexplicable. It looks like a burning plane, but there was no report of a crash. Graded B.

This is an authentic video, but no way to tell exactly what the ojbects outside the window of the plane are. Graded B.

You figure it out. We are horrified and confused.

Hoaxing a video like this would be extremely simple, requiring nothing but an accomplice standing at the edge of the light. Still, there is always the remote possibility that it's real. Graded C.

Remember the "drones" of the summer of 2007? Is this what they would look like on the ground at night?

Some fascinating images here. A man with a horse head? How did he know Google Street View was watching. And what about that UFO in the last shot?
This is very strange. It could be that there were so few hits on it anyway that obsessive clicking on it by Jared Loughner caused the dramatic change. In any case, it's odd.
