Across the country people have been reporting sightings of a large 'fireball' in the night sky last night.
Galway City Cllr Owen Hanley managed to take a video of the UFO which was visible above the Claddagh in Galway.
According to the Limerick Astronomy Club, it was not a shooting star, but actually a Chinese satellite that was re-entering the atmosphere.
The Limerick Astronomy club suspect the satellite was launched back in 2016 and burned up over Ireland last night as it crashed back to earth.
Denis Kellegher from Ballinrobe saw the object in Lough Mask last night and said the bright object sounded like a descending aircraft.
