It was close 8.30pm, 29 Jan 2015.
The sky was a beautiful darker blue with a tinge of green at the horizon by the ocean & Table Mountain. I was driving along Parklands main rd, towards Bayside mall in Table View, and like I normally do when I can see the stars starting to appear & the moon starting to shine brighter, I look out at the sky with wonder an imagination.
Suddenly exactly where I was looking a huge bright green streak crossed my vision. It was over in seconds but amazingly I saw so much detail, probably because it was so low compared to the normal shooting stars one sees at night. This seemed to be very low in the atmosphere, almost touchable but obviously not.
I saw the long green streak of light which then suddenly burnt up and disappeared. I could see the head of the meteor burning up with a more yellow/orange tinge and sparks moving away as it vanished from sight.
Im pretty sure it was a meteor, although Im just guy with self taught knowledge from the internet & books, so it could have been anything.
This was the first time I have ever seen anything like this before. It was simply amazing!
All I need to see now is a UFO or have contact haha 🙂
