Craft heading from South to North turning NW – quite fast
Flew directly across path of incoming airlines flight path to OR International airport
but altitude was difficult to determine, looked fairly high.
Large object / Wide span
Large Orange light at each “wing” end and then each light faded to white and continued to fade to small spots in seconds to nothing until craft disappeared in my view.
I was observing with binoculars and could not make out a shape at all not even with back light from sky. Continue Reading…

On 15-02-015 at around 13:00 in Lyttleton whilst outside we noticed a dark object appearing from behind the rooftops quite a distance away. The object was moving in a vertical line towards the sky at a rapid speed. The object also appeared to be spinning around it’s own axis and on closer inspection we noticed that it even started changing shape when it reached a certain height. The object also paused for 30 seconds or so just below the cloud line where it kept spinning around its own axis. It then turned into a flat pointy shape when it slowly spun towards our right. It then proceeded in the direction (West to East) and gradually vertically to the clouds above as it was racing across the sky. Continue Reading…

I witnessed a large brilliant white tapered cylinder shape, with a dark (black band?) on forward section or nose (tapered at the tail end, blunt front end). The object was descending at a speed I would estimate to be around 400/500km an hour at an angle of around 40 degrees at approximately 9-30am. My first reaction was that it was a light aircraft, but it was moving way too fast, and it made absolutely no sound at all. It had no wings or control surfaces, and the angle of descent and speed was very surreal and unnatural with regards to civil aircraft. I lost sight of it when it dipped below the tree line. I would estimate the distance between the object and myself at not closer than 2km; I could be way off as I did not see anything behind it to give me a good reference point, but it was close enough for me to see a fair amount of detail on the object.

I was driving home from work on the 16th of January, 2015. At about 18:53, on the M1 South in Johannesburg, I spotted a fairly bright light in the sky. Since it was getting later, I assumed it was probably just one of the first stars to start showing that evening. As I drove on, it got bigger and bigger, with no other stars in the sky. In a matter of a minute or two it was much much larger, with a rather high altitude. It was then that I realized this was not a star at all, nor was it any sort of aircraft I had seen before. It was some sort of object. I wasn’t able to make out the shape of the object, it just seemed very reflective, and large, in the sky. Continue Reading…

I stay in kirstenhof and looked up around 11pm last night (24 january) and saw 4 orange/yellow coloured lights in the sky on a clear day. They looked like stars but were moving quickly across the night sky. The kept going further up and eventually the lights just disappeared. it was strange as if though they took a turn for the skies and just went straight up! first time i’ve ever seen anything like this. Could it have been 4 figther jets? My wife said she saw smoke from one of the lights but there were also clouds in the sky that could have appeared to be smoke. i wonder if anyone else saw this?

My boyfriend, his mom and I were sitting on the trampoline and looking up at the stars in Montagu Western Cape, tonight on the 8 December 2014. It was at about 9:20pm. It was during the black out. At first it was just one and we still joked and said it was an aeroplane. But it was moving impossibly fast and the light was not flickering. It also had a sort of ring around it and seems to jump in and out of sight. If you looked just above it you could follow the light with your peripheral vision, but if you looked directly at it, it seemed like a dull grey dot. Over the course of an hour we saw the following: at least 30 of these same balls of light, going in all different directions including turning at high speeds and the strangest angles. We also saw about four or five bright flashes of light ‘balls’ and then they would immediately disappear. We also saw things that appeared to be similar to shooting stars but obviously weren’t because they were much brighter and moved much slower. There was also this ‘disturbance’ kind of haze in our vision if we looked through one eye at a time. Can anyone tell me what this could have been or meant? Very strange!

We had lunch break it was about 2pm when a few workers and I spotted these black objects in the sky. At first I thought that it was birds or a plane, but only to find out that the speed of this was way to quick a flew in motions that was impossible for any known air craft. These objects occured in the clouds and skies for almost 10 minutes if not more… At a time I managed to take over 20 pictures of these ufo’s or flying objects. The best of them all was when I got 6 air crafts in 1 shot wich blew me and my co workers away!!!!! No sounds at all. What was interesting, is that these objects seemed to have a bright glow around them in the naked eye as well as on picture.
UPDATE 20 December 2014: Photos are now available. Please see below Continue Reading…

I was standing outside and just light up a good night cigarette when I heard something that sounded like a powerful jet that was moving faster than sound, because i heard the sound dragging behind the aircraft’s speed and it was way too big to be a jet and was pretty low, and i don’t stay near to an airport at all. My sighting was around 11 pm on tuesday night in parklands, tabelview, Cape Town, South Africa. The aircraft was at least as long as a jumbo public flight aircraft and had a quite a lot of oddly coloured lights and while I watched it time felt like it flew by really fast because I felt like it was only there for 2 minutes but my whole cigarette burnt out before I could smoke it.

I was seated in the back seat of my brothers car on our way to a fundraising party in Ormonde I saw the most awesome sight. Just above a road bridge @ about 7/7:30pm I saw a triangular ufo with red and green lights on its edges. I cannot say exactly what its size was but having been to an airport I would say about the size of a commercial plane perhaps slightly bigger,it seemed to made of some kind of metal like steel but I also noticed it seemed tarnished in other words not a clean metal,it was kind of silverish gold with blackish tarnish. I also noticed a seam along the its symmetry. While trying to take this all in and being in complete awe I neglected to take pics although I had a small bag with only my phone and lipstick in it I just could not take my eyes or mind off of what I had been looking at and all.

Report: i was in my backyard i looked up at the sky the moon was bright and i was watching the flashing lights of a airliner going overhead then all of a sudden i saw a round bright light out the corner of my eye it wasn’t making a noise it was a few kilometers away from the plane but going in the same direction and the same speed then it just vanished so i thought just keep watching the plane after about a minute the round ball of light showed up again this time right on top of the plane you could’nt see the planes flashing lights just the bright round ball of light which was much bigger and brighter than the planes lights it kept going at a constant speed then just vanished again then you could see the flashing lights of the airliner again i watched till the lights of the plane were out of sight and the round light never came back. This happend over the town of Dundee here in Northern Natal it would be interesting to see if any airliner pilots report such an incident on this date.
