Report:

Started with one light, became 4 to 5 lights, bright white then dimmer. More zigzag vertically. Then a horizontal line of lights,slowly flickering,like falling domino effect. Straight line. On the way back home I looked again at the same spot and what I initially thought is that it was on the mountain because it was dark still. I think this happened in between the two mountains…. Anyone witnessed? A reasonable explanation or was it a sighting..!?

elongated object seen in Alice Eastern Cape

Report:

I was jogging at 6 in the morning and it was still dark as in pitch black dark with stars showing and the sky was clear not a cloud in the sky then suddenly there was a flash like lightning in a split second then I looked up and directly above me some elongated structure was gradually going up till it disappeared. it was at cloud level. it had a greenish grayish base. at first I thought it was a shooting star streak but I’ve seen one that was really close and had a bright streak but it never made a split second flashing light, unfortunately I had headphones on so if the flash made a noise I couldn’t hear it by the time I took them off it was silent.

Rocket seen over Norkem Park

Report:

I saw a silent elongated object with fire shooting out of the back of it. At first we thought it was a shooting star but it was flying too low and was clearly rocket propelled and light was bouncing off of it. It moved very quicky and the red and yellow “fire” behind it was about the length of the object itself.

Dozens of shiny objects around sun’s halo.

Report:

I first noticed this phenom on April 24th.After arriving home from a half day’s work and looking skyward I noticed 3 independently moving lights that looked like daytime stars. As they moved in front of the sun I saw 5 more smaller (or more distant) lights but of course couldn’t focus due to the direct sunlight.

I put on my shades,blocked the sun with my hand and was shocked to see possibly a dozen more moving at varying speeds and all in different directions. I called the 4 family members who where at home, all brought their shades with and witnessed the same objects.
They’re most visible directly around the sun’s halo and gradually fade as they move further from it.
It’s a little troubling to me as I’ve seen them on 4 different occasions (24th and 27th April and 5th and 13th May). They fly around seemingly aimlessly for hours,mainly from around 10am to 3pm.

I’ve had previous sightings and have seen these lights at night before but never so many and not in the daytime.
I’ve ruled out planes, drones,definitely not satellites, iridium flares,Chinese lanterns or swamp gas.
Can anyone else here confirm that they see this while in JHB. I work far from JHB and haven’t seen this while at work.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Bright Orange Flashes at regular intervals

Submitted by: Yusuf Ginnah

Report:

There were bright flashes of orange lights covering most of the Eastern horizon. We initially thought it to be strange lightning except for the colour.
But then we also noticed that it occurred at ten second intervals at first, then at twenty seconds afterwards. During the flashes it looked like there was something solid within the clouds where the flashes were originating from. I also captured the latter part of it on video via cellphone but this does not do it any justice.

Silent Black Triangle – Kimberley

Report:

I wen’t out of my home for a smoke at 11PM. I always look at the stars when I am outside at night. I noticed movement in the sky moving from the north. Firts I thought it was a satelite, but as I focused on the object I saw a second light moving with the first one I saw. Then I thought it was two birds flying in formation at night, but as I focused more and it came closer I noticed it was a triangle shaped object. The lights was on it’s “wing tips”. It was feint orange lights. The lights seemed to reflect light more than it emmitted the light. The craft was darker than the sky, but only just. It also reflected light as it passed overhead moving in a southernly direction. It made absolutely no noise at all and that was perhaps the most unsettling thing for me.

The sighting lasted about 10 seconds. I estimated the object to have been between 500 and 1000ft above the ground an moved at between 200 & 300kts. But this is just my estimate. It had a wingspan of maybe twice that of a Cessna C172.

I am a pilot and aviation enthusiast. What I saw was no known aircraft. The fact that it emmitted no sound was really unsettling. I extinguished my cigarette and went inside my house as soon as it passed. I always thought people who saw ufo’s were lying attention seekers or ignorant people not clued up on aircraft.
