It was the best sight ive ever seen in connection with the few shooting starts ive seen before. Ok I did make a wish thou….! 🙂

Meteor / Light in Roodepoort

Report:

Me and a guy from work were driving our normal route from Randfontein to Johannesburg. We drove past the informal settlement (Princess Crossing) behind Westgate Mall and we saw what appears like a falling light. It was still very early morning so the light was very bright. It had a tail like i have seen comets had and the tail burned with a green light. As we saw it both of us said its a UFO ,might just have been a meteor burning in the atmosphere

Report:

I was riding to work on my motorcycle this morning. I saw a big burning object in the sky coming down with tremendous speed, faster than a plane could. I realised it was a meteorite. It seemed like it might have landed in SA. I haven’t seen any other reports from people living in Durban.

On our way home from crossfit this morning, somewhere between 6:05 and 6:10, my partner and I saw something bright in the sky. We were heading uphill on Rubenstein Road, where we stopped dead to observe something plummeting to the ground at an incredible speed.

My instinctive reaction was that an aircraft was about to crash: however it seemed unlikely owing to the sheer speed of it. Also, trailing behind it was showering sparks and greenish fire (for lack of a better term).

It’s hard to articulate something cohesively, when you’re confronted with something that you’ve never seen the likes of. Which is probably why I was greeted with apprehension when I attempted to contact news agencies: in hopes of finding out who else saw what we saw.

Also, considering the fact that we followed it’s progress close to point where it must have struck (at least from our perspective, it was) we were expecting to meet broadcasts of some kind about it’s impact.

Whatever it was it appeared quite large in size and we reckon it must have made quite a dent, wherever it met the earth. However, we can only speculate: neither my partner or I speak with any authority on the topic.

But, we did see it. And it was quite a sighting. We were so dumbstruck, we failed to take a picture (not that there would have been much time for it any case).

Report:

It looked like a meteor type object with a bright oval shaped head and a long burning tail traveling more or less at a 45 degree angle towards the ground. It did not seem very high up in the sky (lower than what a jet airplane would fly) nor did it seem to be traveling very fast. It made no sound that I could here. I watched it falling for about 3 seconds before disappearing behind the tree line towards Sandton.

UFO in the Pretoria sky

Report:

I was driving to work, coming up in Stead Ave, heading south towards Brooklyn, when my eye caught a bright light, moving across the sky, from west to east. This was at about 06h05, because the news was still on the radio. At first i thought it was a flare, but the angle was wrong. Then i thought it was a plane coming down, but it was too small for that. It looked like a comet, with a bright long tail. I could see sparks breaking of off the head.
If you guys saw this in JHB, then it must have been a large object …
I am burning to know what this was … My first thoughts now are that it might be a piece of satellite.
I am just glad that i am not the only one that saw this. This is the only mention of it so far, that i could find on the net.

It was a white light travelling at high speed, but very low. It caught my eye because at first I thought it was an aircraft travelling very low. And then it disappeared between the buildings.

Report:

My husband and I saw a bright glowing huge thing falling diagonally from the sky while driving this morning. It was glowing blue, white and yellow with a thick glowing trail. It shot across the sky and then looked as if it exploded but I don’t think it was something hitting the atmosphere because it was already much lower than that. It dissapated after that. I saw a lil something falling in the sky about a month ago (i posted a pic) but that was small and fell slowly and it was during the day. This was huge and amazing and it was still dark. I got such a fright I threw my makeup all over the car. Awesome. Maybe its an astroid or something but I dunno, it was an incredible sight.
