Fireball UFOs caught on film in Ireland

Groups of strange bright circular objects have been filmed flying in formation in the skies over Ireland.

Filmed by a Youtube user known as "Naktis Ireland", the objects were caught on camera as they passed over the top of houses in Cork. "I am sorry for the quality, it was filmed with a mobile phone," he wrote. "Ironically I had a Canon EOS 55D with 300 mm lens at home that could of filmed in 3000x3000 but I was afraid that they would disappear by the time I got my camera as this is a very rare opportunity so instead, used a phone to record as much as possible."

The footage has come under considerable scrutiny since appearing online. Best-selling author Whitley Strieber has suggested the lights could be flares or sky lanterns. "The thing that bothers me about them is that I am seeing that slow falling motion, not like something powered at all. I think that they are too large to be fireworks," he said.

"Many questions about the legitimacy of these UFOs are being raised by online commenters and a handful of photographic and special effects experts, who speculate on whether these are flares, balloons, lanterns or simply, unexplained."

Googling around, I saw a LOT of people claiming these are Chinese lanterns, because apparently you can buy them easily in large numbers and releasing them is not even a nuisance crime. I guess this could be true, if the lanterns were coming down out of the clouds... But I also agree with the various people who say that the lights in the video are way too bright to be regular Chinese lanterns. Got a snort from one poster on another site who claimed they could not be Flares because Ireland does not have a single military airplane. Which I found with a 2 second google search, was not true. Appare... [More]

It would likely help if we knew which direction the video is facing and where around Cork the video was taken. Then we could say whether or not the video was facing the water.... where the flares might have been seen. The wind was moving right to left.. Which way does the wind in Cork normally blow in the evening?

Which way does the wind in Cork normally blow in the evening? One thing I think we can all agree on is these are NOT extraterrestrial vehicles. They seem way to bright for Chinese lanterns but not knowing the camera and such who knows. I still say flares and transports do carry flares.

Hmmmmmm Simultaneous self-igniting Chinese lanterns? Pretty bright, non-flickering, candles for daylight, ya think? Show me. Flares also flicker, smoke profusely & are dangerous over populated areas (a big no-no). 0 for 2 people. Still not enough info for any conclusion with NO wind speed & direction or corroboration. Can't agree to anything. Just unidentified.

The cameraman was in a populated area but teh flares could have been over the ocean.

The cameraman was in a populated area but teh flares could have been over the ocean. Totally agree. This video could have been right on the shoreline where they were launching the Titanic related flares. Perhaps that is why the person filming it did not run around the house to get a better look, because he knew those flares were over the harbor?Also on the video of the Titanic celebration, they were launching the flares in threes, just like is seen in the UFO video. And, the f... [More]

Also on the video of the Titanic celebration, they were launching the flares in threes, just like is seen in the UFO video. And, the flares in the Titanic celebration video burn steady also, like those in the UFO video. And they drift at about the same speed and same downward velocity. That is why I posted earlier it is too bad we don'... [More]

Completely different time of day but....well close i guess, but also the titanic flares have no clouds in the sky.
