UFOs spotted off Irish coast under investigation

The Irish Aviation authority has launched an investigation after a number of pilots spotted a UFO over Ireland last Friday.

Several sightings of an unidentified object flying at "astronomical" speed before disappearing off the coast of Ireland has sparked an investigation by the Irish Aviation Authority.

Air control said there was nothing showing for that evening.

The IrishExaminer reports that on on Friday last, a pilot from a British Airways flight contacted Shannon Air Traffic Control to ask if there were military exercises talking place in the area - but there were none underway.

The pilot of the Boeing 787, which was flying from Montreal to Heathrow, went on to describe how he spotted a unusual flying object that "was moving so fast". "Alongside you?" asked the controller.

North Korea has said it has closed its Punggye-ri nuclear testing site and the Sohae missile engine test facility. Last week, North Korea called off a meeting with U.S.

The BA pilot explained that something moving very fast came alongside them, before speeding off rapidly to the north.

She said they were "wondering" what it could be, that it did not seem to be on a collision course.

Another pilot from a Virgin plane joined in and suggested it might be a meteor or another object re-entering the earth's atmosphere. The pilot said there were "multiple objects following the same sort of trajectory", and that they were "very bright where we were".

The Virgin flight confirmed the objects were heading at his "11 o'clock position" and that "two bright lights over to the right" could also be seen climbing away at high speed. "We saw a bright light and then it disappeared at a very high speed".

Both planes were said to be in high-level airspace - which is an altitude between 28,500ft and 42,000ft.
