At about 00h30 on 1 Jan 2013 I observed a number of orange lights in the sky above Kamma Park in Port Elizabeth. My companion also saw them and I remarked that the formation looked like the constellation Orion. It was not possible that it could actually be Orion because the lights were too big and were bright and orange.
I was driving at the time and then a tree obscured the lights. When we passed the tree they were completely gone. A short distance up the road I saw a single orange light in the sky. I then pulled over and got out the car.
Initially the light was stationary, then it began to move from west to east.
My companion suggested it might be a helicopter but there was no sound at all. Eventually it disappeared from view. At this time there were no other lights in the sky. The other 7 or 8 lights had completely vanished.
