Reports From Two Pilots Of Bright Objects ‘Moving Fast’ Off Coast Of Ireland Sparks Official UFO Investigation ????

On November 9 at about 7:40 a.m. (about 2:40 a.m. on the East Coast of the U.S.), a British Airways pilot contacted the Shannon Air Traffic Controllers to see if military exercises were being performed in Irish airspace while she was passing through.

The pilot, dumbfounded when ATC told her there were no such exercises, described “a very bright light” that “disappeared at very high speed.”

It was flying on the left-hand side of her Boeing 787 aircraft before “rapidly [veering] to the north.”

A second pilot, from Virgin Airlines, called ATC regarding “multiple objects following the same sort of trajectory” that were very bright.

Irish officials are investigating what the lights could have belonged to.

Amid speculation, Apostolos Christou, an astronomer from the Armagh Observatory and Planetarium, said he believed aliens were not to blame for the mysterious lights.

Christou explained:

“It was most likely what are commonly called shooting stars. It appears the matter was extremely bright so it must have been quite a large piece of material. I cannot say from the pilots’ description, but it could have been the size of a walnut or an apple.”

The Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) said:

“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.”

It’s possible, of course, that one of those objects was the TARDIS and the Doctor is protecting the British Isles.

It’s a slim possibility, but there nonetheless.
