Hi. We live in Weltevreden Park in Roodepoort and our patio faces East, and the Northcliff hill. On Friday, 8th March around 7pm, we saw ‘Chinese lanterns’ going in the direction West to East. They looked like huge lanterns on fire, about 3 metres tall. Through the binocs it seemed there was writing on the bottom. About 9 went by in 45 minutes or so…and they seemed to disappear behind Northcliff hill….any idea?
