Out walking the dogs last night between 21h10 and 21h40: Facing Constantiaberg from Lakeside area, a large orange ball suddenly appeared below the moon. There was a burst of energy as it grew larger and brighter in size for about 10 seconds and then slowly grew smaller until we couldn’t see it any longer.
While still discussing this, we turned towards The Muizenberg and saw two of the same objects. They were moving this time, up and down and eventually headed towards each other, seemed to merge together and then separated.
One headed in a downwards direction and the other went upwards. Same story, they seemed to ignite and then slowly burn out.
We eliminated the possibility of these being flares due to the movement. Also meteors do not behave in that manner. Definitely looked like controlled movement. There was no noise whatsoever.
Anyone else see these?
Cathy also contacted us with this report:
Place: Camps Bay
Time: At 9 – 10:30 PM.
Anyone see the UFOs over Camps Bay last night? 2 took off 10 minutes apart over the sea and headed West. Orange (like a street light) quiet. It moved really quickly almost like a helicopter and faded.
The hour later one returned hovered over the football field high up and then also faded. The last one came back to near the shore and faded quite quickly.
It was the most amazing evening and my husband and I were sitting on our deck looking out at sea. We were dumb founded. Took a photo but the zooms not good so it’s just a tiny orange pinhead.
These two sightings seem to be very similar. Did anyone else see something like this on 20 December?
The next report is about a bright reddish star also seen in Camps Bay on the same day.

When I stepped outside of the resturarant, I saw a bright reddish star like object high up in the sky. The oject remained there for about a minute or so, before disappearing. I researched the sighting on the www, only to discover that there have been a number of similar sighting especially in Cape Town, reporting that this was a possible ufo sighting. What I have confirmed however, is that what we all saw is some sort of iridium flare. check out www.heavens-above.com or google “how to find an iridium flare”. to find what you looking saw.
