UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Sandyford, Dublin, Ireland.
Date: ? ? 91/92
Time: 10pm - 12pm
Number of witnesses: 2.
Number of objects: 2 main objects followed by smaller lights, possibly 8 in total.
Shape of objects: Spherical
Weather Conditions: Clear, starry night, cold.
Description: I observed 2 lights approaching at about 20 degrees above the horizon, coming from west to east, at first I thought they were commercial aircraft landing lights because they seemed directional, that is they seemed to both be 'pointing' in the same direction, like car headlights. As they passed almost directly overhead we could see there was nothing joining these lights together, we could see the stars between them. They both had thin vapor trails. We then noticed several smaller dots of light following the two main lights, these were about as bright as dim stars, there was also 2 'pencils' of light in this loose formation, they reminded me of fluorescent light bulbs.
There was no sound. The whole formation seemed to turn to the south in a banking maneuver, again giving the impression that it was an aircraft. The sighting lasted about 1 to 2 mins.
TV/Radio: I remember there was radio and news paper reports the next day saying that people all over Ireland had reported seeing strange things in the sky the previous night, one report stated that 2 members of the Irish police force, the Gardai, had reported seeing a structured craft hovering next to an electrical pylon somewhere in the midlands.
