(WHDH) — Multiple airline pilots in the sky over Ireland reported UFO sightings last week.
Air traffic control audio logs indicate that at least four pilots encountered at least one “very bright” unidentified object that disappeared at a “very high speed,” according to a CNN report.
One pilot who spotted the object asked air traffic control in Shannon if there was military activity in the area and was told there was not. The pilot reportedly said in response, “We saw a bright light and it just disappeared at a very high speed.”
Another pilot described the speed of the objects as “absolutely astronomical,” comparing it to Mach 2 level.
When asked about the sightings, an aviation expert told the Irish Examiner that the objects were likely “meteorites” based on the “low trajectory” in which they traveled.
