Half of the 170 sightings in Iceland relate to light in the night sky, what appeared as a strange flying object.

Magnús told visir.is that a detailed case was recently reported. Alda Jónsdóttir and her husband saw three silver dishes flying over Lake Rauðavatn in the outskirts of Reykjavík. The UFO stopped above the lake for a moment before continuing its journey.
