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?

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.

Meteor / Light in Roodepoort

Date: 15/06/2017
Time: 06:00 am

Submitted by: Jaco Theunissen


Me and a guy from work were driving our normal route from Randfontein to Johannesburg. We drove past the informal settlement (Princess Crossing) behind Westgate Mall and we saw what appears like a falling light. It was still very early morning so the light was very bright. It had a tail like i have seen comets had and the tail burned with a green light. As we saw it both of us said its a UFO ,might just have been a meteor burning in the atmosphere

Meteorite seen Durban

I was riding to work on my motorcycle this morning. I saw a big burning object in the sky coming down with tremendous speed, faster than a plane could. I realised it was a meteorite. It seemed like it might have landed in SA. I haven’t seen any other reports from people living in Durban.

Streaking object seen going down in pretoria east

On our way home from crossfit this morning, somewhere between 6:05 and 6:10, my partner and I saw something bright in the sky. We were heading uphill on Rubenstein Road, where we stopped dead to observe something plummeting to the ground at an incredible speed.

My instinctive reaction was that an aircraft was about to crash: however it seemed unlikely owing to the sheer speed of it. Also, trailing behind it was showering sparks and greenish fire (for lack of a better term).

It’s hard to articulate something cohesively, when you’re confronted with something that you’ve never seen the likes of. Which is probably why I was greeted with apprehension when I attempted to contact news agencies: in hopes of finding out who else saw what we saw.

Also, considering the fact that we followed it’s progress close to point where it must have struck (at least from our perspective, it was) we were expecting to meet broadcasts of some kind about it’s impact.

Whatever it was it appeared quite large in size and we reckon it must have made quite a dent, wherever it met the earth. However, we can only speculate: neither my partner or I speak with any authority on the topic.

But, we did see it. And it was quite a sighting. We were so dumbstruck, we failed to take a picture (not that there would have been much time for it any case).

Meteor like object by Montecasino Fourways

It looked like a meteor type object with a bright oval shaped head and a long burning tail traveling more or less at a 45 degree angle towards the ground. It did not seem very high up in the sky (lower than what a jet airplane would fly) nor did it seem to be traveling very fast. It made no sound that I could here. I watched it falling for about 3 seconds before disappearing behind the tree line towards Sandton.

UFO with bright long tail in the Pretoria sky

I was driving to work, coming up in Stead Ave, heading south towards Brooklyn, when my eye caught a bright light, moving across the sky, from west to east. This was at about 06h05, because the news was still on the radio. At first i thought it was a flare, but the angle was wrong. Then i thought it was a plane coming down, but it was too small for that. It looked like a comet, with a bright long tail. I could see sparks breaking of off the head.
If you guys saw this in JHB, then it must have been a large object …
I am burning to know what this was … My first thoughts now are that it might be a piece of satellite.
I am just glad that i am not the only one that saw this. This is the only mention of it so far, that i could find on the net.
