Last night around 7.30pm while climbing out my car a light in the night sky caught my attention, not thinking anything of it(it was a constant red light basically like a aeroplane,with a faint flashing light)as it was moving in a straight i was walking to the gate i noticed that it had stopped in a stationery position.i stopped dead in my tracks and focused my attention on the light making sure that what i was seeing was really happening,and it had stopped.i then called my girlfriend who was already inside the house, at that moment the light began to move slowly 90degrees of its original direction until i couldnt see it past the silhouettes of nearby had roughly stayed stationery for about a minute or so.its not the first time I have seen strange lights but not quite like that before.

My wife and I were in my backyard in Monte Vista when suddenly she noticed an oval object in the skies above TYGERBERG Hill.
This object must have been of a shimmering metal as, as tiny as it was, it was tremendously hard on the eye it was bright! Very bright.
It hovered for 5minutes vanished and repeat.
That went on for about an hour.

Saw an unidentified object coming from vanderbiljpark towards sebokeng then proceeded towards meyerton on clear blue day sky, thought to be a satallite , rushed indoors to fetch binoculars (10×25) could not tell clearly because of binoculars , called my friend to help also could not tell , what is amazing was the fact it was not moving in a straight path, and it had lights, at first thought it was light reflection, until it stopped for a while about 5 minutes, and stopped rotating, then it went staight up until it faded into the sky, the mango flight passed beneath it , from cockpit i think they saw it , i searched for satallite types but did not fit the description of the object .

Looking towards the east sky @ 16:53 my 5 year old daughter and I spotted a stationery white light permeating through the cloud cover. It got Progressively brighter and peaked at a luminosity greater than the brightest star I’ve ever seen in the night sky. I ran inside to get my camera and snapped a few shots. It faded and again peaked at about half of the original luminosity then disappeared altogether. The entire event lasted approximately 3 minutes. Zoom in just to the left of the Lourie bird in the tree. The only logical scientific explanation I can think of is a Supernova, but no reports posted online.

This is the 2nd time we have spotted this flying object, it has green lights, sometimes red and just stays in the air like its waiting. it goes u little then comes down, very bright almost like a small fire ablaze in the sky. Just before sunrise it slowly dissapear behind the mountains and is gone before morning brings light. This is nothing natural and definitely not explanable!

We we looking up at the stars in where it looks like the 3 sisters. My fiance saw something very small, and round dash away, it was tiny and we lost it almost as fast as we saw it, but it was very high up and it was not a plane or a satellite.
In fact, the reason I came across your website was because, I was looking to see if anyone else saw it! 🙂

Shape shifting object in sky| anomalous cloud-like shimmery object

Saw a shape shifting ufo this morning at around 5:30 am just as the sun was turning the tips of the medium grey clouds pink.
At first I thought it was a bird as a few were flying about but it stayed still for too long, then I thought it must be a distant plane, but it wasn’t moving any closer, further or in any direction for a long time.
The shape started to swivel about and I figured it must be a tiny cloud forming as it got bigger in circumference. It seemed more blurry compared to other clouds its size and the light wasn’t catching in a uniform way (it seemed to shimmer and light up at odd angles to the sun). Then it started to ‘fluff’ about faster – too fast for a windless sky (plus the other clouds- even the small ones- retained their shape and position the entire time).
It waxed and wained a couple times to a point of near invisibility each time, never sticking to one shape for longer than a second before waining a final time and completely disappearing for a bit. After less than a minute it appeared again towards a northerly direction along the horizon line (to the left in other words), where it did a repeat of the same shifty behavior before disappearing for good.

Green falling star but not

I was looking out the window last evening and saw a large, bright, round green light with a whitish tail streak across the sky going from northerly to south westerly direction. There was absolutely no sound, so it could not have been a plane crash (also none reported overnight). It was moving way faster than any high level aeroplane which sometimes passes overhead us and it appeared to be travelling level below the cloud cover, so it could not have been a falling star. It could also not have been a firework, as no sound preceded or followed it…and it did not fall directly downwards or in any arc. No idea what it could have been. It held a steady path. There was also no reflection up into or off of the clouds above. Sadly, I was not able to record it as it took but a second to pass overhead and out of sight.
