I went onto our deck just after 10pm as it was such a hot evening. I saw a large orange light, as red around the edges, about the size of a lemon hanging in the sky above Durbanville, not moving, so not a fireball.
There was no sound,so it was not a helicopter. After a while, it started moving off towards the Hottentotsholland mountains; as it moved, the orange light faded, but there was still an indistinct grey shape visible against the black sky.
My two kids saw it too, my son, who has sharper eyes than I do, said the shape was circular, with a ball inside it.
