I was casually sitting on my stoop in the Eastern suburbs of Paarl, looking over the night sky to the north. My eyes wandered across the horizon, above the roof of the house across from us and I saw an object against the dark night sky. The object made no sound but a dim beam shone down. Now, how I saw the object with no light was the reflection of the city’s lights onto the object. I could see this dark object against the blue on the night. I saw it move in a northerly direction. The dim beam shone down in a cone shape – from close under the object to where the beam ‘ended’ was wider than where the light came from. The sighting lasted for about 5 seconds before it. I tried calling my Dad to witness but when he came out the object had faded and I could no longer see the shape in the direction it was heading.

Myself and two other colleague spotted a red light flashing, on what seemed to an be aircraft. However the height, inconsistent flashing and silence made us think that it cannot be an Airplane / Helicopter, as well the object stopping in mid-air. We assume that it was a drone due to its erratic flying patterns, moving really fast across the sky, but its was really high up and behind / above clouds? What was most strange was it disappearing for a good few seconds and then reappearing a few meters at another place. I am not aware of any drone that is able to turn of the red LED light that is usually on a standard drone. Also as it started moving further away at a faster pace, The red flashing light changed into a white and more rapid flashing light and then it stopped and flashed Red once again. Then it vanished?

Saw a cigar shape yellow and black object flying from south to north I first thought it was a bag in the wind but using the binoculars and the size of itand the distance from us it could not be a bag. Was to var away to take any snaps.

We saw a white blinking moving light north of Orion’s Belt. Moving initially in a southerly direction towards Orion’s Belt. before reaching Orion’s Belt the trajectory changed to a westerly direction. The frequency was not regular. There was no sound. No colours either.

Fast Moving Easterly Star

My 3 Year old woke me up for Milk around 4:20 am – sorted him out and was outside having a smoke and praying between 04:38 and 04:40 – looking up at the morning sky where Orion usually is – I noticed a fast Moving star?; size and shape consistent with that of the other visible morning stars.

Star / Object / Satellite – was moving quite fast from West to East and was gone within roughly 40 seconds.

Star crossed the path of two morning stars heading east and was the same size and brightness as the two stars it crossed under. Star started fading out of sight almost at reaching the far easterly horizon – gonna set an alarm and wake up tomorrow to see if there is a repeat sighting…
