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..!?

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

Date: 13/05/2018

Place: Verulam, KZN
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.

Strange Bright light

Report:

. Tonight just after 6pm 26-04-2018. Riversdale, Meyerton. My daughter noticed a bright object coming towards us. She jokingly said look the aliens, she is only 10 so I looked and almost immediately realised that it was not the normal Boeing going towards OR Tambo. I ran and looked at the bright orange/red light moving at probably the speed of a jet. It was at a height of +- 500m and was absolutely silent. It passed us and I kept on following it as it moved in an easterly direction. There was no green or red light or a light flickering indicating that it was an aircraft. In the distance I saw a Boeing heading south and the objects lights went out and back on two or three times. When its lights was off I could make out a solid dark shape which was definitely not a plane. I would love to know if anyone else saw it.

Dark flying wing

Place: Olivedale
Submitted by: Uncle

Report:

Smoking outside and saw a dark unlit wing pass silently overhead. The wings joined in the middle at 90deg, non-tapering and about 5 aspect ratio (ratio of wing width to length). No engine sound and almost not visible. Difficult to determine height but speed was about 5 deg/second. First time seeing something like this and time is not exact. Out of sight before I could get phone. The wing was going south to north and above Cooper College sports ground.
