I was driving on the Platekloof road tonight (10.01.2014) going back home with my wife. Exactly at 22:05 when we approached Plattekloof Village Shopping Centre, we noticed some light high up in the sky and at first we thought it might be a falling star or comet. Then we got confused as object was speeding down incredibly fast (towards Earth) looking like it will crash (from our position – in the direction of Tygerberg Nature Reserve/Parow North/Belville).
After 3-5 seconds object was even closer to Earth and this time we were confident it is something else as it was quite big (size of commercial airplane we would say), in blue neon light, sort of cylinder shape and didn’t make any sound.
When it got to a certain distance (we’ve perceived object very close to Tygerberg Nature Reserve hill) it just disappeared into thin air and left tiny light trail for 1/2 second.
Whole event lasted for +- 10 seconds.
Not sure what it was, but I am sure we would not the only one seeing it.
