Duration:1 hour
Bright Lights over City

It was a Saturday night in July and we were having a BBQ out our back garden, at around 11pm my dad not noticed something coming over the house, it looked to be as low as a helicopter would not high enough to be a plane which usually fly over our house towards Dublin Airport, but there was absolutly no noise from this light. It looked like a round ball of light, more yellowish then white, you might say it looked like a fireball but there was no light surrounding the object, no noise, no nothing it just fly over the house, we sat wondering what it could be... a meteor, helicoptor, low flying jet ???? But we all agreed it couldn't be any of the above, we forgot about it... then 20mins later my dad said "Here's another one" as it passed over the house it was followed by 3 more in a straight line, it came from the same direction as the 1st and flew in the same direction as the 1st and they all flew over (no noise) and went out of sight....all in one big line.

At this stage i was worried and i seemed to be the only one, the rest of the family said it had to be something normal but they did as i say all agree it was very strange, i asked my dad to get the camcorder out in case it happened again... an just like in the movies as he went in to get the camcorder, another set of 3 lights all the same distance apart from one and another came again from the same direction but this time it was different, The first one stopped dead in air(we screamed) the second one stopped then the second one took of at such a speed i couldn't even measure and flew on front of the first (we screamed) then the line continued it was watching a relay race... the guys who where trying to say it was a meteor agreed that no meteor or any object which doens't have some sort of control CAN NOT STOP DEAD IN AIR ......the all went out of sight again in the same direction...

We rang Dublin Airport Air Traffic Control and told them our story... then said they couldn't see anything funny coming up on rader and to be honest i don't think they took us seriously... the next morning we rang a radio show, again they didn't seem interested. But as the days went on more and more people from the area told us they they saw it also..

Still nearly a year i haven't heard anything about it...
