I wen’t out of my home for a smoke at 11PM. I always look at the stars when I am outside at night. I noticed movement in the sky moving from the north. Firts I thought it was a satelite, but as I focused on the object I saw a second light moving with the first one I saw. Then I thought it was two birds flying in formation at night, but as I focused more and it came closer I noticed it was a triangle shaped object. The lights was on it’s “wing tips”. It was feint orange lights. The lights seemed to reflect light more than it emmitted the light. The craft was darker than the sky, but only just. It also reflected light as it passed overhead moving in a southernly direction. It made absolutely no noise at all and that was perhaps the most unsettling thing for me.

The sighting lasted about 10 seconds. I estimated the object to have been between 500 and 1000ft above the ground an moved at between 200 & 300kts. But this is just my estimate. It had a wingspan of maybe twice that of a Cessna C172.

I am a pilot and aviation enthusiast. What I saw was no known aircraft. The fact that it emmitted no sound was really unsettling. I extinguished my cigarette and went inside my house as soon as it passed. I always thought people who saw ufo’s were lying attention seekers or ignorant people not clued up on aircraft.

It was below the cloud line travelling in a north westerly direction, the sun was reflecting off it so that it had a very bright silvery shine. We could not make out what it was. We thought maybe a very large drone. Then it made a U turn and climbed high above the clouds and seemed to be making it’s way back towards the city. The sun caught it on and off the whole time. Definitely not an aeroplane.

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! 🙂
