I first noticed this phenom on April 24th.After arriving home from a half day’s work and looking skyward I noticed 3 independently moving lights that looked like daytime stars. As they moved in front of the sun I saw 5 more smaller (or more distant) lights but of course couldn’t focus due to the direct sunlight.
I put on my shades,blocked the sun with my hand and was shocked to see possibly a dozen more moving at varying speeds and all in different directions. I called the 4 family members who where at home, all brought their shades with and witnessed the same objects.
They’re most visible directly around the sun’s halo and gradually fade as they move further from it.
It’s a little troubling to me as I’ve seen them on 4 different occasions (24th and 27th April and 5th and 13th May). They fly around seemingly aimlessly for hours,mainly from around 10am to 3pm.
I’ve had previous sightings and have seen these lights at night before but never so many and not in the daytime.
I’ve ruled out planes, drones,definitely not satellites, iridium flares,Chinese lanterns or swamp gas.
Can anyone else here confirm that they see this while in JHB. I work far from JHB and haven’t seen this while at work.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
