An unexplained light appearing in the night sky over Edenderry in Offaly is captured on camera.

The pictures were taken by the Cahill family who were baffled by what they saw. Confused by what she witnessed Marian Cahill says,

UFO means Unidentified Flying Object and at the moment it's an unidentified flying object.

RTÉ News called on space expert David Moore from Astronomy Ireland to examine the image. After closely investigating the images, Moore claims that it has to be aircraft coming directly towards the observer.  

It's two bright lights coming towards the operator.
