I have no idea whether these lights are UFO related or not, but for what it is worth, I am recounting it here in case anyone else has had a similar experience… During the night of 16/2/2014 at 3am I went to the bathroom, which is situated right next to my daughter’s bedroom. Her door was open, and as I was about to switch on the bathroom light, I was surprised to see a flashing light near the ceiling against the wall in her room. I watched in surprise as it expanded and contracted, flashing. Then it went out, and repeated the sequence about 5 times. Naturally, I investigated, but there are no electric lights, cords or anything else that could explain the events. The light was extremely bright, white and pulsating, and above the curtain rails. The curtains were drawn.
Then on the night of the 24th April, I was woken by the dogs barking madly. It was exactly 01H03 as I checked my mobile; I opened the blind in my room and looked out of the open window to call the dogs inside (they have free access at all times). I was amazed to see that there was a “shaft” of light moving across the front lawn, which was partly visible from my position at the side of the house. The light was very much brighter and broader than a torch-light (several metres wide) and it moved over the ground almost like a search light, lit up the wendy house in front of my window, then moved back to the front lawn again, several times. It was definitely coming from ABOVE the house and I am ashamed to say I was too spooked to actually go outside to see what was causing it (I live alone with my daughters). There was no sound except for the dogs barking. There was also a large, pulsating, star-like object about the size of the full moon (?) above the rooftops opposite our house, which flashed and disappeared almost as soon as I noticed it.
I mentioned all this to my daughter the next morning; she says she woke during the night and saw a bright, blue light (not seen by me) shine into her bedroom through the window (the curtains were closed).
I am neither a skeptic nor a “believer” and would love to have an explanation. I have seen several strange things over the years, and try to keep an open mind. I wish I had had the presence of mind to take a photo, but in retrospect I am sure the camera in my elderly Blackberry would not have been much use in capturing anything like this. BTW we live in the area of Durbanville which borders onto Kraaifontein, Cape Town.
