The UFO was first spotted by a baffled British Airways pilot last Friday (November 9) at approximately 6:47am local time while flying over the south-west coast of Ireland.

The Irish Aviation Authority is investigating unusual sightings of bright lights and UFOs reported by three commercial aircraft pilots while in contact with Shannon Air Traffic Control last weekend.

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.

"OK. It was moving so fast", the pilot replied.

The Virgin flight was heading to Manchester when a pilot saw the lights.

She was left confused as to what it could be as it did not seem to be on a collision course with another object, ruling out the chance of it being a missile or air-bound weapon.

In March, two airline pilots claimed to see UFOs fly over their planes in Arizona's airspace. "It came up on our left-hand side and then rapidly veered to the north".

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]".

He described it as a "meteor or another object making some kind of re-entry" and said it was "multiple objects following the same sort of trajectory - very bright from where we were".

The Irish Aviation Authority said it had filed a report on the sightings which will be "investigated under the normal confidential occurrence investigation process".
