London – Irish aviation officials are investigating reports of bright lights moving quickly in the skies over Ireland.

“The report will be investigated under the normal confidential occurrence investigation process,” the authority said in a statement.
Press reports indicate the bright lights were seen Friday morning by pilots from British Airways and Virgin Atlantic.
