I was sleeping when I suddenly woke up from a flash. As I laid in bed watching out the window I witnessed a second flash, an object seeming to emmit a orange white flash every 3 seconds. It was making circular direction changes. I watched it for 5 minutes. Next moment it shot an lazer beam to the south where I faintly could see 5 faint lights dodging the lazer. It then moved fast to the North. My wife witnessed it with me as it departed to the North.

Bright flashing light seen over Florida

Date: 03/12/2018
Time: 10:10 pm
Place: Florida
Submitted by: Jude


Me and 5 other family members witnessed, an intermittent bright light flashing in the night sky across multiple positions at different angles.
The light appeared to be accompanied by a larger dimmer object which it appeared to orbit in a 360 fashion intermittent and random flashes of a bluish white light as well as other brief spouts of colours seemed to appear around the dimmer object, however the secondary and active light object seemed to move spontaneously in precise andcontrolled movements and at considerable speeds, invisible to the eyes until a flash would indicate its new position around the central dimmer object. The objects moved to different locations within our field of view at rapid speeds and continued to flash intermittently during the event which lasted about 7 minutes. In the begining of the event, shortly after my fiance bought the light to mine and the family’s attention, Iquickly ran inside to fetch my military grade torch, and proceeded to run back out and begin flashing it at the craft, the crazy thing is the object appeared to react to the torches light immediately by flashing brighter and flickering for a few split seconds, it appeared as if they were moving closer to us for a few brief moments before disappearing over in a south easterly direction, we continued to watch the area in the sky in which we last saw the object, only to witness a bright stream of bright orange light apearing to leave the atmosphere.
We are in awe and in disbelief of what we all see in the sky tonight, we have some video footage, unfortunately it is of notoriously bad ufo video quality, except for the excitment and genuine disbelief you can hear in all of our voices.

Strange bright white light

While waiting for the Tiangong 2 satellite to reach its peak brightness at 34 degrees, I was looking around at the stars. I was looking west and then I saw a bright white light moving in the fog then disappearing and reappearing a few seconds afterwards (this happened 2 times) it was moving slowly across the sky at an elevation of around 34 degrees. It almost looked like when you see lightning in the clouds from far away, but it was more concentrated and brighter. There were no airplanes in the direction (west) that I was looking in (according to Flightradar24, the closest airplane was near Paarl and another one was still at the airport).
I have never seen anything like this and I have spent quite a while looking at the night sky.

Strange Hazy/ Misty White lights (4 of them) Swirling and flying continuously in the night sky (almost the way Swallows swoop and fly) until about 12pm. (perhaps later – but went to sleep at that time)

Disc object gliding over Swartklip road

I was showing my grandson the full moon on 25 November 2018 when I noticed the craft appear under the moon from the direction of baden Powell drive towards swartklip indoor centre. Thinking it was an airplane I pointed to my grandson how fancy the flashing bright lights were. However, I then noticed that there was no sound (which usually is a racket when passing our home) also that the shape of the lights were more in a disc shape and prism like. Still curious I continued watching and the craft suddenly stopped in midair in the area above the swartklip sports centre. It stayed there changing its light colour to white then sped off in a high speed upwards.

Sighting 20 December 1990

don’t even know where to start, so I’ll start with my first known sighting which I also recorded in my diary at that time. I was waiting on a date to pick me up looking at the sky and saw what I thought was a shooting star. Dated: 20 december 1990. Instead the light grew brighter and started flashing with long pauses on and off. When the light grew red I thought it was a helicopter but then another appeared next to it and the first one became more visible. It was dome shaped with lights aligned in the middle and another red beam beneath it. The second one also had a red beam but was different in design with 5 lights like tripods extending to the bottom. The two then started manoevering very fast around each other also in an up and down motion. After quite awhile there was one big flash and the first one just beamed off and disappeared and the 2nd one zoomed off as well! I’ll have to check in my diary for finer detail as I’ve also drawn illustrations at that time.

Bright star-like object

My wife and I were walking outside to go to the shops. I looked up and saw a bright star-like thing. Was almost directly overhead and not moving. It was too early/bright for a star and too high in the sky for Venus (90 degrees/overhead). So I ran back inside for my binoculars. Because it was directly above I had to lay on the grass to hold the binoculars steady. It wasn’t a star. It looked translucent like a jellyfish and wasn’t round, but I couldn’t discern the shape. I double checked the focus by focusing on the moon. It was definitely not a star. I got up off the grass because we had to leave and tried to find it again when I got to my feet and it was gone. Was as bright as Venus and just disappeared in a couple seconds.

Something flying past the surface of the moon.

I’ve been using my reflector 1000 x 130 telescope to observe the beautiful full moon we’ve been having. Today I was using my 20mm eyepiece without the moon filter when I saw something almost looks like a black dot zip past the moon. I had the best view using the eyepiece as it gave me a full view of the moon and dark space around it. At first i though it could be my eyelash the way it moved in and out of the picture. I then made certain that I have my eye open enough that my eye lashes would not come into contact with the lens in the eye piece. I saw the same dot, this time it made an impossible turn and sped in a different direction of the moon . I observed it until it reached the circumference of the moon and i could not see it against the dark space background. I decided to put my 10mm eyepiece for magnification, this time i put the moon filter which blocks out the glare of the moon and it gives a bluish tinge. I focused on one crater using my tracker on the equatorial mount, using the right ascension motion control, lo and behold , looked the same (black dot) but slightly bigger zipping across the moon in a second. Something is up there! I don’t know what it is.
