UFO in Ireland - probably balloons

This video is a good example of why lights in the sky is not proof of a real UFO sighting. I personally think people get too excited about lights out in the sky at night, although there are some exceptions - for example the Phoenix lights where people were close enough to actually see a 'craft' of some sort.


The phoenix lights is probably the biggest mass sighting of recorded history - on the night concerned people were up looking at the Hale-Bopp comet.

Comet Hale-Bopp (formally designated C/1995 O1) was arguably the most widely observed comet of the twentieth century, and one of the brightest seen for many decades. It was visible to the naked eye for a record 18 months, twice as long as the previous record holder, the Great Comet of 1811.Hale-Bopp was discovered on July 23, 1995 at a great distance from the Sun, raising expectations that the comet would brighten considerably by the time it passed close to Earth. Although predicting the brightness of comets with any degree of accuracy is very difficult, Hale-Bopp met or exceeded most predictions when it passed perihelion on April 1, 1997. The comet was dubbed the Great Comet of 1997.
