My mom and I was driving to Heidelberg Western Cape and drove through Sir Lowry’s Pass at about 5:30 am. We saw a very bright light in a north-east direction. Being in aviation myself I knew it couldn’t be a plane. It was quite high too, but not a star. I took a picture of it, zooming in on it to the max. It looked like a cell under a microscope! It wasn’t moving at all. As the sun raised all other stars disappeared but this light stayed. We had eyes on it until about 6:30ish, then it became overcast and we didn’t see it again. I called a friend in Johannesburg to see whether it might be a planet, but it seems that only that area could see it. The first picture is the close up of the second.
