Donegal, Ireland A Big Blue Circular Light

Date: December 23, 2005
Time: 5:35 p.m.

Hi, Last Friday evening, the 23rd of December at 5.35pm GMT, I was driving with a friend from Letterkenny to Doochary through Glenveigh National Park and as we descended towards Lough Barra I could see a big blue circular light about a metre or more in diameter positioned on the rock face of Crockfadda at about 330 metres up the mountain.

As we drove closer to the lake (seen below) the blue light was directly above us to our right about 2/3rds of the way up the rock face.

The light grew more intense and was pulsating in colour from dark to electric blue but with little flare light or discernable pattern. I have never seen anything like it before but had heard a local story of a dancing 'intelligent' blue light which was visible to many people in a nearby location at Lough Finn in the 1940's.

It would be seen by couples generally at night in various locations about the lake but was eventually seen by many and when dozens of people tried to scare it away from a rooftop it would dart to an adjacent height and then resume its place on the rooftop or tree.

I assumed that what I saw last week was a phenomena like that and I stopped the car and turned off the headlights and the light was still there - it was a cloudy evening and there were no stars or wind.

The light was visible for the several minutes we sat there and I would gladly have sat on and watched it but my friend wanted to get back to the house and the light was still visible as we drove away to the south.


Thank you to the witness for the interesting report.
