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

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.

Cheers
