Shooting star – or something else??????

Saw this strange object – what was really strange is the fact that it was moving horizontal with the earth. And the speed was quite slow – seemed to be moving at a few 100kms per hour.

We were on a game drive when my daughter saw this and took some pics with her Nikon – has anyone else seen this in the same area.

It appeared in a North West direction.

  1. Hi Christo!

    I see these things all the time.
    In fact just last night, 23 August 2018 at 19:05 my entire football team and I saw this so I know I aint crazy. Happens almost every night if you just take time to watch the sky. Hoping someone can provide info of what it is we are seeing.
    It isn’t a plane or a satellite, that’s for sure.

      It is moving too slow for a shooting star – and if you zoom in on that picture it shows an object with a really big ‘blast’ pattern – sort of ‘flame’ behind it – but nothing I’ve ever seen in my life – I’ve seen many military missiles, and obviously Boeing / planes – but this does not make any sense.
