Unidentified Flying Objects glow in the sky over Ireland.

An official investigation is now underway into the numerous sightings of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) across the country.

UFOs were spotted all over the place. Stories of strange flying objects lighting up the night sky abound.

RTÉ Newscaster Ken Hammond descries what he witnessed in the night sky. Astronomer David Moore, on the other hand, believes that the sightings were more likely to be parts of a satellite which burnt up while entering the earth's atmosphere.
