Irish Aviation Authority investigating multiple UFO sightings in Kerry

Irish Aviation Authority investigating multiple UFO sightings in Kerry

Just before 7 o'clock last Friday morning, Shannon Air Traffic control got a call from a British Airways pilot passing over Kerry enquiring if there was a military exercise taking place in the area.

Airlive says a third pilot also saw the freaky lights and that the Irish Aviation Authority has filed a report with the sightings due to be "investigated under the normal confidential occurrence investigation process".

Officials from Shannon ATC quickly confirmed that there were no planned military exercises taking place and that there was "nothing showing on either [their] primary or secondary [radar]". "[.] Ok. It was moving so fast that I couldn't even really see it".

You can listen to the archived recording of the call from 17 minutes here.

The controller then asked: "Alongside you?".

She added that after approaching on the left side, it "rapidly veered to the north".

The pilot of a Virgin Airlines Boeing 747 then joined the conversation and made reference to a meteor or another object re-entering the earth's atmosphere. She described it as a "very bright light" that "disappeared at very high speed".

She was wondering what it could be but said it did not seem to be heading for a collision. "Very interesting, that one", said the pilot.

A pilot of a nearby Virgin Airlines Boeing 74 also described seeing bright lights, saying they spotted, 'multiple objects following the same sort of trajectory, ' the Irish Examiner reports. They said, "This report will be investigated under the normal confidential occurrence investigation process".
