BBC announces British pilot plane on Fridaythis morning contacted Shannon Airport Control Station. She wanted to know if she had military exercises in the area because she noticed a "fast moving object".
The air traffic controller has ensured there is no workout in this area.
A pilot who flew from Montreal, Canada, to Heathrow Airport said that he noticed a very bright light emitting object that appeared on the left side of the aircraft, and then "rushed to the north".
The woman wanted to know what could be, but she was convinced that the object was not a threat to collisions.
Pilot Virgin Airlines also believed that he had seen an unusual phenomenon and thought he could be a meteor or other facility that moved the Earth's atmosphere. He said he noticed "a few items that resembled the same path" and were very bright. Pilate said he saw "two bright objects" on the right side of the plane, which then increased the speed.
Another pilot said the object or objects were moving to "astronomical speed".
What could be?
Apostolic Christou, the observatory of Armagh and the planetary astronomer, said that it was probably a spatial dust that crossed the Earth's atmosphere at very high speeds.
"It was most likely the so-called Star Fall," he said. – Witnesses said they saw very strong lights, so I think the subject or objects were pretty big. I can not say exactly, but from the description of the pilot, cosmic dust or stones could be about the size of apples or apples. "
The astronomer said that in November, such celestial appearances often appear. It is estimated every year 40,000 tons of cosmic dust reaches the Earth's surface.
The Irish Air Administration (IAA) is investigating this unusual phenomenon.
