Pilots flying over Ireland on Friday reported seeing an unidentified flying object, or possibly objects, spurring an investigation into the UFO (or UFOs) by the Irish Aviation Authority. The pilot said there were "multiple objects following the same sort of trajectory", and that they were "very bright where we were".

One pilot said the speed was "astronomical, it was like Mach 2" - which is twice the speed of sound.

Two other planes also reported seeing the object in the area at the time.

There were no military exercises underway, and Shannon Air Traffic confirmed that nothing else was showing on either primary or secondary radars.

According to the BBC, a British Airways pilot made contact with Ireland's Shannon air traffic control to report a odd sighting and ask if there were any military exercises taking place in the area.

"It came up on our left-hand-side and then rapidly veered to the north", the BA pilot said. "They were very bright from where we were".

However, the British pilot made it clear that that weird object spotted in the skies was not heading for a collision.

In March, two airline pilots claimed to see UFOs fly over their planes in Arizona's airspace.

According to the Irish Mirror, the first sighting occurred last Friday at 6:47am over Kerry, when a British Airways Flight was travelling from Montreal to Heathrow.

The Irish Aviation Authority has launched a probe following several sightings in the are last week.

Airlive says a third pilot also saw the freakish 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".
