My friend Kathryn & I & our 2 little girls spotted a round white shiny object from our garden in Constantia today. It was very high in the sky ( higher than the planes we usually see) & at first moved at a slow & steady pace past the moon that was visible in the sky. It then appeared to stop & stayed in one position for about 10 mins before disappearing out of sight. It appeared to be made of metal & was shiny. We tried to think of all the identifiable things that it could be, but had to admit to ourselves after a while that it was pretty weird & definitely not a plane or air balloon or satellite. What is even more bizarre is that my husband, mom-in-law, kids & I saw 5 similar objects whilst gardening a few weekends ago. The front object appeared white, but 2 others were orange & 2 seemed blue in colour. We stared at them for ages as they came from the Cape Flats direction over Constantia & then disappeared quickly. They were as shiny & round in shape as the object we saw today. I wonder if anyone else could confirm either of these sightings?
