The Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) has been investigating reports of bright lights at the south-west coast of Ireland.
On November 9, Friday, a British Airways pilot has contacted them wanting to know if there were military exercises going on in the area as there was “something moving fast”. But the air traffic controller of Shannon Airport, clarified that there were not.
The pilot even said that there was a “very bright light” and the object came along the left side of his aircraft before immediately veering to the north.
Adding to that, another pilot said that it might be a meteor or another object entering the earth’s atmosphere. He said that there were very bright objects “following the same sort of trajectory” and there were other two bright lights that climbed away at speed.
IAA said that they have filed the report and it will be investigated.
“Following reports from a small number of aircraft on Friday 9 November of unusual air activity the IAA has filed a report.
“This report will be investigated under the normal confidential occurrence investigation process.”
