I saw a strange light moving east in the night skies between 9:30 and 10:30 at uneven speeds and trajectories on the above mentioned dates in Tulbagh, Western Cape.
My partner and I have been looking up at the night skies since the beginning of this year while house-sitting. On the first mentioned date we saw a light moving over our heads in an eastern direction, moving at uneven speeds and emitting a light of various intensities at uneven intervals (Often a dim flash followed by a slightly brighter flash and then followed by a fairly bright flash)
On the last date we where visiting a friend at her house in the same location and saw a similar light moving slowly in the night sky again between 21:30 and 22:30. This light source again would emit white light by what seemed like random occasion at what seemed like random intensities and seemed to accelerate and slow down very rapidly, on this night a second light source performing similar manoeuvres was also seen and eventually disappeared in to the night sky.
These flying lights, did not have the typical, green, red and white lights of airplanes and seemed to move lower at times than the very common airplanes traffic in the area as well as very far above it, there was no sound being emitted from the light sources as they moved over the night skies. The airplane traffic is typically very audible.
Triangular formation of steady white lights spotted flying just outside of Ottosdal, around midnight. It’s movement gave the appearance of lights fixed to a craft. The three lights remained fixed in relation to each other but moved across the sky into the proximity of what i assumed was a passenger plane and then lost sight of it.
On the 25th of December 2018, around 11pm, I saw the same triangle fly over my location in Ottosdal. It flew directly over from behind. I leaped up and ran a few meters to get the clearest view. was able to track it for a minute before it seemed to turn and i lost sight of the lights. it made no noise and seemed to be flying low and fast.
Coincidently about 15 minutes later I saw what is probably the brightest thing I’d ever seen in the night sky. It was clearly much higher in the sky, and was so bright it looked like it was on fire. much brighter than any star or planet in the sky. It moved for a while and then it was gone. this looked like your typical “shooting star” or something but was moving a bit slower a was much much brighter!
With that said, the triangle craft is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVAWkcRFi1c – This video is the best example of what it looked like, almost exactly the same except my perspective was obviously a lot more steady than the camera’s and it was clearly moving fast. Hoping to find out exactly what it is.
It was around 19:30 on 20 dec in Kluitjieskraal,Wolseley,Western Cape.I was laying in backyard just chilling and watching airplanes flying.When the air was clear I saw two round black objects moving beside each other.One moved very fast forward and the 2nd one followed.They went like this for 2-3 minutes.After a while one just disappeard in mid air and the second one followed.I never put my head down because I really wanted to see what was this.I’ve been waiting my whole life to see a ufo.Unfortunately I couldn’t take a picture or record a video because the two objects was very high up in the air.

Me and 5 other family members witnessed, an intermittent bright light flashing in the night sky across multiple positions at different angles.
The light appeared to be accompanied by a larger dimmer object which it appeared to orbit in a 360 fashion intermittent and random flashes of a bluish white light as well as other brief spouts of colours seemed to appear around the dimmer object, however the secondary and active light object seemed to move spontaneously in precise andcontrolled movements and at considerable speeds, invisible to the eyes until a flash would indicate its new position around the central dimmer object. The objects moved to different locations within our field of view at rapid speeds and continued to flash intermittently during the event which lasted about 7 minutes. In the begining of the event, shortly after my fiance bought the light to mine and the family’s attention, Iquickly ran inside to fetch my military grade torch, and proceeded to run back out and begin flashing it at the craft, the crazy thing is the object appeared to react to the torches light immediately by flashing brighter and flickering for a few split seconds, it appeared as if they were moving closer to us for a few brief moments before disappearing over in a south easterly direction, we continued to watch the area in the sky in which we last saw the object, only to witness a bright stream of bright orange light apearing to leave the atmosphere.
We are in awe and in disbelief of what we all see in the sky tonight, we have some video footage, unfortunately it is of notoriously bad ufo video quality, except for the excitment and genuine disbelief you can hear in all of our voices.

While waiting for the Tiangong 2 satellite to reach its peak brightness at 34 degrees, I was looking around at the stars. I was looking west and then I saw a bright white light moving in the fog then disappearing and reappearing a few seconds afterwards (this happened 2 times) it was moving slowly across the sky at an elevation of around 34 degrees. It almost looked like when you see lightning in the clouds from far away, but it was more concentrated and brighter. There were no airplanes in the direction (west) that I was looking in (according to Flightradar24, the closest airplane was near Paarl and another one was still at the airport).
I have never seen anything like this and I have spent quite a while looking at the night sky.

Strange Hazy/ Misty White lights (4 of them) Swirling and flying continuously in the night sky (almost the way Swallows swoop and fly) until about 12pm. (perhaps later – but went to sleep at that time)

My wife and I were walking outside to go to the shops. I looked up and saw a bright star-like thing. Was almost directly overhead and not moving. It was too early/bright for a star and too high in the sky for Venus (90 degrees/overhead). So I ran back inside for my binoculars. Because it was directly above I had to lay on the grass to hold the binoculars steady. It wasn’t a star. It looked translucent like a jellyfish and wasn’t round, but I couldn’t discern the shape. I double checked the focus by focusing on the moon. It was definitely not a star. I got up off the grass because we had to leave and tried to find it again when I got to my feet and it was gone. Was as bright as Venus and just disappeared in a couple seconds.

I’ve been using my reflector 1000 x 130 telescope to observe the beautiful full moon we’ve been having. Today I was using my 20mm eyepiece without the moon filter when I saw something almost looks like a black dot zip past the moon. I had the best view using the eyepiece as it gave me a full view of the moon and dark space around it. At first i though it could be my eyelash the way it moved in and out of the picture. I then made certain that I have my eye open enough that my eye lashes would not come into contact with the lens in the eye piece. I saw the same dot, this time it made an impossible turn and sped in a different direction of the moon . I observed it until it reached the circumference of the moon and i could not see it against the dark space background. I decided to put my 10mm eyepiece for magnification, this time i put the moon filter which blocks out the glare of the moon and it gives a bluish tinge. I focused on one crater using my tracker on the equatorial mount, using the right ascension motion control, lo and behold , looked the same (black dot) but slightly bigger zipping across the moon in a second. Something is up there! I don’t know what it is.

First there was a bright flash, then nothing then a second not as bright from an object moving Northwards, followed by a third and final dimmer white light. It was also observed by a colleague the night before, but an hour earlier and moving (in the Western sky) Southwards. The time for both observations would have been about 10 seconds.
