NEW YORK (FOX5NY) - Pilots flying through Irish air space reported seeing objects in the sky.
A British Airways pilot flying from Montreal to Heathrow over Ireland's County Kerry on Nov. 9 saw bright lights speeding past the 787.
The pilot's conversation with air traffic control was posted to LIVEATC.net.
BA Pilot: Is there any military traffic you got there now?
Shannon Airport Traffic Control: There is nothing showing on either primary or secondary.
BA Pilot: OK. It was moving so fast. It came up on our left-hand side and then rapidly veered to the north. It was a very bright light that disappeared at very high speed.
A Virgin Airlines pilot reported seeing two, bright objects. "Seems to be multiple objects following same trajectory."
Another pilot reported the speed of the object as "absolutely astronomical, like Mach 2 or something."
Irish Aviation Authority says it is investigating.
"This report will be investigated under the normal confidential occurrence investigation process," said the IAA.

No, we didn't track whatever it was....
At least two flights, #BA94 & #VS76 reported seeing bright lights moving at very high speed near the coast of Ireland last Friday morning.
