Bright Star hover Umhlanga

I was down at the beach promenade taking a walk when I saw one bright star in the somewhat-clear-night-sky that seems a little odd compared to the others. I could not see a specific shape, but if I had a telescope at the time, I could have had a better way of describing it.
What was odd about this ‘star’ was that it made tiny, quick movements that happened every few seconds. From where I was standing on the promenade, the movements were no more than a centimetre in lenght to the left or right of its current position. There was no sound to it, and it was not a drone. This ‘star’ moved unnaturally fast for it to be confused with any of our current technology satellites either. A better way to describe its movements was that it zipped from left to right, up and down effortlessly. It had geometric movements, either horizontally straight or at an angle.
After a few minutes passed by, tiny flashes of light started to appear about half a centimetre around the ‘star’ and they happened to be coming from the right side of the ‘star’. It was almost as if the ‘star’ was trying to avoid being on the same path as where the tiny flashes of light were appearing. Hence, it appeared as if the ‘star’ was moving out of the way of the tiny flashes of light. This went on for about a minute or so before the tiny flashes of light stopped and I gave up staring at the strange sight.
I checked on the star a few times while I was walking on the beach promenade and noticed that due to earth’s rotation, it ‘moved’ along with and stayed its position in relation to the other normal stars.
To be sure that it wasn’t just my eyes that were playing tricks on me while looking at the ‘star’, I used two stationary objects nearby as my grounding point to look at the ‘star’. These two objects were hotel buildings. I know the ‘star’ moved. I just need to know if anyone else has more information about this.
Sorry, I unfortunately do not have any images as proof. Although I do have a few eye-witnesses that saw it too.

It’s quite weird to report this because logic tries to dismiss it. I was out in my garden with my family when I saw a white/silvery sphere in the sky. I figured it was pretty high because it actually went behind cirus clouds and was moving against the direction of the clouds, so I don’t think it was a balloon. My wife actually spotted another object the same description in the same area between the same cloud. Ended up seeing 3. About 10 minutes later I saw another object much brighter moving slowly overhead. My initial thought was that it was a kid playing with a drone over our house. But I realized it was too high. And the object didn’t have any discernible shape- sort of round, sort of “cigar” shape. It also seemed to twinkle between silver, green, black. I thought it was a balloon. I called up my brother who lives about 4km away. He could also see them. He looked through binoculars and said it seemed to be changing shape and the colours were not reflected but seems to be emitted. All in all we had 5 witnesses to this sighting. I took some pics with a cell. Not great but it’s there.

Two Massive Lights During Lightning Strike – Hillcrest

I was having a cigarette outside. And thought I saw a flash from lightning above me but some distance away. Didn’t think anything of it until two massive lights lit up i would estimate 3km apart for 3 or 4 seconds. Enough to grab attention and the last disappearing burst was so fast I nearly fell over trying to follow it. Can’t explain. If it where an aircraft no way would it move left to right and change direction so abruptly. I’m so shocked

Traveling Grey Sphere Object – Gordon’s Bay

On Friday evening, the 8th of December 2017 at around 9pm I saw a large bright red-orange light moving in the sky. It appeared to be flying quite close to the Earth and came from the direction of Gordon’s Bay and went towards the Helderberg mountains. It was moving slowly and didn’t make a sound. I was watching it and wondered if it could be a plane and with that thought the light slowly grew dimmer until only a spark was left and the light disappeared. Then we saw a rather large grey sphere shaped object continue its course straight across the sky. We clearly saw it and watched it until it went out of sight. I did not perceive it to be an asteroid, nor was it a plane. It had no tail and there was no explosion. It was not dropping from the sky like a flare, but steadily moving horizontally. I was amazed at how clearly I could see the round grey shape in the dark travelling forward.

My fiance and I were having our weekly pic nic outside and as it was very hot that day we had decided on rather having it at night, as we live on a farm it was very quiet and you could see stars everywhere, there was a very chily wind blowing so we were getting ready to pack up and head inside when i looked out on to the farm land i noticed a very slow moving orange light appear and disappear and then all of a sudden speed off into the distance, I told my fiance what i saw and so we both continued to watch in case it came back again, sure enough it did come back and started moving very fast to where we were sitting. I didn’t wait around until it got there and we both went inside. still sketched out about it. definitely wasn’t a plane or a car and was moving way to fast to be anything else.

Bright orange and red trail in sky over Table Mountain

Firstly, I don’t do drugs. lol

My apartment faces tabel mountain with the Harbour behind me. When I lay on my couch I can see table mountain to my right.

I was busy watching golf when I noticed the sky brighten up in an orange/green tinge. I immediately thought it was a firecracker going off. As I shot up to look the light grew very bright orange in two trails. At this time I was expecting a loud firecracker bang as the trail moved quite slowly.

I moved to the window and out of nowhere the light went super bright orange in a double trail blaze and shot off behind table mountain. It looked like a blue light was emitted as it went behind the mountain.

I don’t get freaked by things. I’m a pretty logical engineer. That was no plane. I was so freaked out I was shouting. My fiancĂ© came running to be told the story. She automatically said it was probably an asteroid. Which it could very well be….
But, the trail wasn’t long enough. The speed wasn’t consistent. It was moving slowly then sped up.

Anyway, fantastic experience. I felt this warmth to it all. Pretty freaked out.


Golden orbs in flight – Southern Suburbs, Cape Town

My Girlfriend and I were rushing to catch a shop that closed at 8pm in 2012 As we exited my front door, we stopped in amazement because a stream of twinkling gold lights were slowly flying from left to right above the backside of table mountain(wynberg side view). They were silent and moving smoothly. Like a thread of lights moving leftward, the left side ones seemed to disappear behind what looked like clouds but wasnt clear. More kept emerging from the horizon on the right side(blouberg side) to join the thread moving across the sky. At one point there were about 13 or so. The light quality is as many have described around the world – Odd in that it was brilliant and sparkling but light quality did not look conventional. Almost like fire but contained in the tiny orb shape. All were exactly the same. I rushed upstairs to get my camera but was too late. The episode lasted a while, possibly 2 or 3 minutes and I specifically asked my girlfriend if we were BOTH seeing the same thing. She confirmed most definitely that we were. She is a sceptic about UFOs, so I am glad there was a witness. I immediately looked online and all I read was the story about a helicopter crash in table bay that was sighted by a few. There was no evidence of a crash but the times co-incide and it was approximately that location(blouberg side) that the golden orbs were popping up from and joining the long line of lights.(even though we were in wynberg) No other people saw what we did (or reported it) which was very surprising because it was there a for a decent amount of time. No sound, such smooth controlled flight plus the golden sparkle/glow/twinkling nature of the lights make me think they were not of this Earth.

As I was driving along the N12, in my periferal, I saw a group of lights, kind of like fireworks, and then I looked directly, and the lights were together (probably 8 of them), and these lights stayed there for a second and disappeared into thin air.
