UFO Sighting Report - Ireland

January 1st 2009 : Artane, North Dublin

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Artane North Dublin Ireland

Date: 01 January 2009

Time: 00.05

Number of witnesses: 2

Number of objects: 1

Shape of objects: Round

Weather Conditions: Cloudy broken

Description: We were out looking at the fireworks for new years eve at our house when we saw a orange glowing ball of light moving south directly over Dublin airport (air traffic control had to see it) I thought it was a helicopter or plane but it didn't have navigation lights flashing. The light then did an immediate right turn and disappeared into clouds.

No noise or anything.


UFOINFO Note: As with other similar reports I asked the witness to have a look at the UFO Balloons website to see if this is what might have been seen and received the following reply:

Hi John a few more people have seen it....

I've seen the (ufo balloons) video just before I sent the report, my partner was in Thailand last year and she saw them over there. She said this wasn't like them, because they flicker, just to change my report the orange globe was heading due south over Howth then it changed direction \north east.
