Just after the sun had gone down, to the East (from Cape Town) at about 20:20. The horizon was still pretty bright, and I noticed a very bright star that wasn’t there before on previous days, very close to the horizon. After several minutes I noticed that it had moved slightly to the North. Before I could get my camera, it developed a bright green halo and sped off. It skipped off the atmosphere maybe twice before disappearing upwards and out of sight.

Was left with severe goose bumps!

    On two occasions I was standing in my back yard late at night gazing at the stars, and noticed what looks like an aircraft, passing by without any sound have a red and green light but not flickering. Moving along swiftly.
