Hazy Amber Orb Seen From Dinwiddie, Germiston

Report:

This sighting occured many years ago when I was a teenager.

It was a very, clear, warm spring evening on Friday the 22nd of October 1993 and the moon was decending out due west from us. The moon’s elevation from the horizon at the time of the sighting was 45 degrees. In addition, I wish to add that I am a trained observer and know very well what a weather balloon, ball lightning and satellites look like. I live close to Rand Airport, therefore I am also familiar with the various aeroforms that fly around here on a daily basis and am able to distinguish aircraft quite easily, likewise of their flight patterns. What I saw was not a weather balloon, satellite or any type of rare natural or atmospheric phenomena.

Just a few hours before the sighting, my mother and I were laying in the backyard of our home in Dinwiddie, Germiston on the East Rand, watching the sky with the intent of seeing something strange in the sky to record, as we’d heard a couple of reports a few weeks prior on the local radio talk station in Johannesburg (Talk Radio 702) of UFO’s being sighted above the city by listeners.

There was a slight breeze blowing that particular evening and my mother tried flashing light signals with the torch (flashlight) at the sky with the perception that this may attract these craft.

At 22:00, we glanced back toward the north west and saw a small light. It was just decernable in the darkened night sky, but dull in comparison to the stars. It was definitely not a satellite, that I know for sure, as I see many of them at night from my home. There was no sound discernable from my vantage. I immediately ran indoors to fetch my binoculars to get a better look at this thing.

When I returned, my mother pointed it out again to me I managed to locate it through my binocs. Looking at it with the naked eye, it appeared to be the size of a pinhead held at arms length and very distant over Johannesburg; it was a very dull amber colour and had no distinct outline. It was completely round in shape, headed in a southerly direction aandt a steady rate of speed, then passed directly in front of the moon.

It seemed to be of a translucent quality – not solid. Then… what made this sighting most interesting was what happened next: The object moved just a hand space, to the left of the moon, levelled off, then came to an abrupt halt. There it hovered in mid air for 5 seconds, proceeded further in a straight, southerly direction, hovered for another 5 seconds then disappeared into the stars!

The duration of the sighting lasted approximately 1 to 2 min. I wasn’t able to take any photos of this object as I only had a small plastic Instamatic camera and wasn’t able to take photographs at night with it, especially of anything at great distance. Nevertheless, I provide here, an artist’s rendering of the sighting instead.

PLEASE NOTE: I do not smoke or drink, so what I saw was NOT an hallucination of any kind. The sighting took place in front of two sober people. The report was later submitted to the Mutual UFO Network in Texas, USA.

3 light over Pretoria East

Report:

There where 3 light about the size of an average star in the night sky moving fast from west to east in a triangle pattern but as these lights moved one of the lights moved out of pattern shorty after an aircraft came in the picture moving in the same direction but did not look or sound like a standard civilian plain then circled back and then headed in the same direction again. The 3 lights when in a triangle where about a thumb thickness apart when holding out my own thumb when the objects where about overhead where I was standing and the one light that broke formation moved from side to side, the lights never flickered from what I could see and shortly after I spotted a satellite, these objects where moving at about 3 or 4 times the speed of a satellite across the sky and there was no noise. The plain mentioned above I could hear but not as clear as a civilian prop or turbine plain, luckily a Civilian plain followed about 20 min after to compare the sounds and could be clearly heard.

Hi there last night at a about 9 my husband and I were driving home. When we saw a very bright greenish light very high up in the sky. It was thick in the front going thinner to the back. Traveling at a heck of a speed towards earth we watched it for at least a min and then it just vanished. Was much brighter than any star I’ve ever seen. We live in East London South Africa and just wanting to know if anyone else has reported this sighting.

Hi all. I here this very loud aircraft sound in the early morning hours, round about three to four. Looked outside and saw this huge aircraft. The shape is round and flattish, with lights all around it. It hovers for a while and then disappears with the speed of light!! It is really freaky because it seems that no airport is open that time of the morning yet. What is it then?

Report:

I was sitting in the lounge when I saw 2 headlights in the sky coming towards me. My first thought was that it was an airplane (planes do not fly in this direction or altitude). I got a fright because it looked like it was going to crash into our house. I jumped up and went to the door to have a closer look, by this time it was very close but there was no sound. I called my husband to come look. He too saw it, it was now right in front of us level with the house.
At this time it turned and slowly moved passed us towards our neighbours yard in a westernly direction still silent. It then went out of view. We saw this object from the front and side. It had headlights like a car from the front, and different color lights, red, yellow, green, orange, on the side. On the underside there was three white/bluish color lights, one in the front and two in the back, that seemed too propel. The body of the object was black with a simmer, like a type of cloaking device. It was a chiselled shape. It moved with a wobble. It was a clear night with the the moon out above us. After our initial shock of the sighting we phone my husband’s mom to tell her our experience. While I was on the phone with her I notice that the moon was already setting behind the horison. In this case it was setting like 3 hours too early. It was now about 9.30. The time is not adding up for us. After this we googled for different shapes of ufo’s and found this one posted below very close to the shape we saw.

Report:

At first glance I thought it was a plane with its green and red flashing lights,heading towards the airport. It stopped mid air and then continued moving forward. It then stopped again and appeared to reverse back to its original place and then changed direction and moved out to the sea.
