I was standing outside looking at the clouds and the sunbeams. I notice a round light coming from the moving towards the clouds as it when into the clouds it disappeared. Thought it was plane going through the clouds ,but nothing came out on the other side. it was too late to make a vid or a pic.

Was having a smoke when I woke up. Looked up and saw something that looked like a star. It started getting bigger. It was omitting light and it looked very strange it moved around slowly. I called my wife to have a look. She went back inside and it looked like it was flying away. I came out again and it was back. My photo you need to zoom in to see a shape

First observed a few weeks ago what looked like a `meteor’ at around 7am. Clear, cold morning-sky, zero cloud cover. It looked like a orange-yellow light streaming across the sky towards the Paarl area. Movement was quite slow and controlled not what you would expect since it looked more like a `low atmosphere’ comet travelling and substantially faster than anything in aviation. It disappeared before reaching the horizon and after it did, there appeared two what looked like semi-circular columns standing stationary in the air over the mountains in that region, adjacent to the trajectory just described above. Both these also seemed quite a distance apart would guess 10-15 km, just poised above the horizon. These look like a waxing orb being illuminated by the rising sun over those mountains – hence a semi-circular appearance as if someone just took a paintbrush and created 2 wisping small clouds in the middle of nowhere being illuminated by the rising sun. It disappeared as I was headed towards the Bellville region. Since then at sunrise on a clear-cold-crisp morning have seen just these waxing orbs (now three), as last seen this morning. By about 7.30am from Bellville region looking again in that direction, and with the sun now more risen, it can’t be seen anymore perhaps since its reflection (of the sun) can only be seen closer to the airport i.e it is more striking (the reflection of light) from that airport/N2 area. Is this perhaps some weather observing machinery, thermals in that area creating a small cloud (very small) that causes condensation that the rising sun illuminates? Why can I only see it when driving that way in the morning and on extremely cold mornings with almost zero cloud cover in that region. It is so obvious I want to stop my vehicle and get others to see it too. It looks unimpressive at the moment although quite bizzare in itself, but coupled with the comet-like object that was seen with it a few weeks ago – very strange.

My friends I saw an orange beam or ball of light falling from the sky. It wasn’t falling at the speed you’d expect it to if it was a falling rock or rocket. It was falling at a controlled pace. It showed signs of intelligence behind its mobility. It was slow and precise in it’s direction.. and before I could take the video of the falling light, it suddenly disappeared, leaving a sky full of emptiness. There were no sounds,m and no smells. It never even hit the surface of the earth. It disappeared as soon as it got close to the mountain top, before it even got close enough to land on it.

White light pulsing different colours, moving erratically. Seems to have a vertical piece above it. A thin white line above its core. The whole piece drifts up and down. Wiggling, the motionless then moving again. Can drift quite a distance then comes back. Always seen due West over the ocean. It is always visible for about an hour or two almost every third or fourth night. Have seen this strange occurrence six times now. Our neighbours have seen it as well.

A good friend of mine with her brother inlaw saw what appears to be a cloaking ufo. was black and yet see through and almond shaped. it was very close to the airport and just hovered moving left to right quite quickly. This is the third time i hear of people seen a UFO in the area besides one that I’ve seen and filmed myself over the exact same area. Not so long ago one of the neighbors reported hearing what sounded like a huge marble bouncing outside his house and when they checked there was nothing there yet the houses around did shake. The area i live in is Elands Park. lots of strange things have been happening here

It looked as if a 737 was falling from the sky. It just dropped straight down Around 1500ft it fell with a tail of white light following it until it disappeared. We see it drop for about 3-4 Seconds. We, My wife and two kids were expecting to see and explosion as it disappeared over the horizon. We took a drive to the sea to see if it landed in the ocean but mysteriously there is no sign of this. Currently there is no report of there being an aeroplane incident or any incident. Ballito is 15min from the King Shaka Airport and the object was sighted in the same line as the Planes travel.

I was jogging at 6 in the morning and it was still dark as in pitch black dark with stars showing and the sky was clear not a cloud in the sky then suddenly there was a flash like lightning in a split second then I looked up and directly above me some elongated structure was gradually going up till it disappeared. it was at cloud level. it had a greenish grayish base. at first I thought it was a shooting star streak but I’ve seen one that was really close and had a bright streak but it never made a split second flashing light, unfortunately I had headphones on so if the flash made a noise I couldn’t hear it by the time I took them off it was silent.

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.
