Just wanted to share this. We saw what we believe was a UFO in the sky last night. It was very low bright orange dazzly like a star but very low in the sky below the clouds, 4 times brighter than Venus which is the brightest star at the moment in the sky. We watched it come from West moving across to East on the same height, making no noise at all. It was controlled and not a Chinese lantern floating. It actually flew across the sky from West to East.
Before it went up into the cloud the bright orange disappeared and there was a solid black/grey object, a solid object like an oblong shape, it was silent as it was flying, it went right over the house on its path it was taking. We all went out to watch it 4 of us. My daughter Katie spotted it from the lounge and we all ran outside to the front and watched it approach and go over us and into the distance. My husband said it was not a flare, plane or helicopter, nor a lantern.
It was bright sparkly like a star but muchly bigger and down low very low and silent. It was like a big huge star but orange. But low, about half way between the clouds and the ground.
We are in Roodekrans. Do you know if anyone else saw this object.
