Hazy Amber Orb Seen From Dinwiddie, Germiston

Report:

This sighting occured many years ago when I was a teenager.

It was a very, clear, warm spring evening on Friday the 22nd of October 1993 and the moon was decending out due west from us. The moon’s elevation from the horizon at the time of the sighting was 45 degrees. In addition, I wish to add that I am a trained observer and know very well what a weather balloon, ball lightning and satellites look like. I live close to Rand Airport, therefore I am also familiar with the various aeroforms that fly around here on a daily basis and am able to distinguish aircraft quite easily, likewise of their flight patterns. What I saw was not a weather balloon, satellite or any type of rare natural or atmospheric phenomena.

Just a few hours before the sighting, my mother and I were laying in the backyard of our home in Dinwiddie, Germiston on the East Rand, watching the sky with the intent of seeing something strange in the sky to record, as we’d heard a couple of reports a few weeks prior on the local radio talk station in Johannesburg (Talk Radio 702) of UFO’s being sighted above the city by listeners.

There was a slight breeze blowing that particular evening and my mother tried flashing light signals with the torch (flashlight) at the sky with the perception that this may attract these craft.

At 22:00, we glanced back toward the north west and saw a small light. It was just decernable in the darkened night sky, but dull in comparison to the stars. It was definitely not a satellite, that I know for sure, as I see many of them at night from my home. There was no sound discernable from my vantage. I immediately ran indoors to fetch my binoculars to get a better look at this thing.

When I returned, my mother pointed it out again to me I managed to locate it through my binocs. Looking at it with the naked eye, it appeared to be the size of a pinhead held at arms length and very distant over Johannesburg; it was a very dull amber colour and had no distinct outline. It was completely round in shape, headed in a southerly direction aandt a steady rate of speed, then passed directly in front of the moon.

It seemed to be of a translucent quality – not solid. Then… what made this sighting most interesting was what happened next: The object moved just a hand space, to the left of the moon, levelled off, then came to an abrupt halt. There it hovered in mid air for 5 seconds, proceeded further in a straight, southerly direction, hovered for another 5 seconds then disappeared into the stars!

The duration of the sighting lasted approximately 1 to 2 min. I wasn’t able to take any photos of this object as I only had a small plastic Instamatic camera and wasn’t able to take photographs at night with it, especially of anything at great distance. Nevertheless, I provide here, an artist’s rendering of the sighting instead.

PLEASE NOTE: I do not smoke or drink, so what I saw was NOT an hallucination of any kind. The sighting took place in front of two sober people. The report was later submitted to the Mutual UFO Network in Texas, USA.

3 light over Pretoria East

Submitted by: John Doe

Report:

There where 3 light about the size of an average star in the night sky moving fast from west to east in a triangle pattern but as these lights moved one of the lights moved out of pattern shorty after an aircraft came in the picture moving in the same direction but did not look or sound like a standard civilian plain then circled back and then headed in the same direction again. The 3 lights when in a triangle where about a thumb thickness apart when holding out my own thumb when the objects where about overhead where I was standing and the one light that broke formation moved from side to side, the lights never flickered from what I could see and shortly after I spotted a satellite, these objects where moving at about 3 or 4 times the speed of a satellite across the sky and there was no noise. The plain mentioned above I could hear but not as clear as a civilian prop or turbine plain, luckily a Civilian plain followed about 20 min after to compare the sounds and could be clearly heard.

Round/rectangle shaped object over Muizenberg

Report:

This morning I saw a very strange light/ reflection over what I think is Muizenberg. Never seen this before. Usually at night you can see aeroplanes ascending or descending from the airport. But this was brought daylight. The size seemed to go from small to big and vice versa and then after about 30min completely disappeared.

Hi there last night at a about 9 my husband and I were driving home. When we saw a very bright greenish light very high up in the sky. It was thick in the front going thinner to the back. Traveling at a heck of a speed towards earth we watched it for at least a min and then it just vanished. Was much brighter than any star I’ve ever seen. We live in East London South Africa and just wanting to know if anyone else has reported this sighting.

Report:

Me and my cousin stayed up throughout the night back in 2013. I got tired and wanted to go to bed, but a black cat sat at the window as we walked past it. We fed the cat and made coffee and continued on the journey in making it through the night. At the break of dawn, we went outside with their dogs. We stood in the cold for quite some time but decided to go back, afraid that her parents might get mad, seeing that we were outside alone. As we turned back, we decided to have one more glance. In the sky i saw clouds that looked like some sort of scripture. It was 3 lines long and the top 2 were evenly long, whilst the bottom one was shorter. Next to This was a dark cloud, which was strange as there were no predictions for heavy weather, and the rest of the clouds were a normal color. Atop of this dark cloud, we both saw buildings very clearly. The buildings were a golden color, even though the cloud was dark purple. Around the city, we saw two more clouds surrounding it. Not sure if i was delusional, I asked my cousin if she also sees it and she described it exactly as I saw it. Up till today, this remains a mystery and i cant find any other reports on this sighting. I hope someone else might have seen this… In our amazement, the thought of taking pictures didn’t cross our minds, thus is why we have no physical evidence on this topic.

Flash expands and shrinks 5 times

S/SW SKY ABOUT 20°. July 6 2016 10:05pm, watering a bush in my yard looking down a flash from above caught my eye. Looked up saw nothing. Only an empty patch of sky. Figured a porch light in the distance had glared off my glasses. Continued watering. About 1 minute later exact same thing happened again. So I put the hose down and just stared into the clear patch of sky. Within about 1 minute a pinpoint of light appeared out of nowhere immediatly expanded to about the size of a small dinner plate and then shrank back out to nothing. I was completely floored. I immediatly texted my wife to come outside. I turned on my phone video and pointed it in that direction and waited. Within about a minute it happened again. Once again I was completely floored. I continued recording although I couldn’t be sure if I was catching the right area with my phone the scree was just black. Within about 1 more minute it happened again for the last time just before my wife arrived. I continued recording a few more minutes but nothing happened. It had an orange tint. It appeared in the same place as far as I could tell. It was not travelling at all and appeared extremely rigid in place. It didn’t cast any light down. It appeared out of empty sky as a pinpoint of light expanded, shrank to nothing in less than 2 seconds. There seemed to be a slight pause between it appearing as a ipinpoint and then beginning to expand. To me it at full size it resembled the lens of one of those stage lights that hang above a theatre stage and have a circular pattern in the lens. There was no sound. There were no clouds and the sky around and behind it was very clear. It was not a planet, or a irridium flare, helicopter, drone or anything else like that. IT WASN,T. IT WAS STATIONARY. IT APPEARED IN THE SAME PLACE 5 TIMES IN ABOUT 5 MINUTES. IT LOOKED EXACTLY THE SAME ALL 3 TIME I WiAS IT DIRECTLY. IT EXPANDE TO A SIZE MUCH GREATER THAN ANY OTHER OBJECT IVE EVER SEEN IN THE NIGHT SKY EXCEPT THE MOON. IT MADE NO SOUND. IT CAST NO LIGHT ON THE GROUND. IN MY JUDGMENT IT WAS WAY UP OR OUT THERE. THE SKY WAS CLEAR ALL AROUND IT. I COULD CLEARLY SEE THERE WAS NOTHING ANYWHERE IN THAT PATCH OF SKY..My video captured only one small instantaneous blip. Nothing like what actually appeared. No one else in my area ever reported seeing it as far as I know. I would have thought many people would have seen it as well. I want to know that someone else saw it too as I am begining to question my own recollection even though my video proves something did appear. Thanks for reading this….

Hovering object over Kuilsriver, Cape Town

Hi all. I here this very loud aircraft sound in the early morning hours, round about three to four. Looked outside and saw this huge aircraft. The shape is round and flattish, with lights all around it. It hovers for a while and then disappears with the speed of light!! It is really freaky because it seems that no airport is open that time of the morning yet. What is it then?
