Saw it last night, 31 December 2012 (23:45) and tonight, 1 January 2013 (19:38) again over Bloemfontein. Last night I thought it was a plane but tonight not so sure anymore. Light moved in a northwesterly direction, change to southeast and then north. Was moving very slowly but funny thing is it started dimming until I could only see the black shape. Too far away to make anything out. This was definitely not a plane tonight.

At first it seemed like someone shot off a flare, orange/red light moving across the sky. I saw it again later and now it was even closer.

UFO sighting in Free State #2

Date: 14 November 2011
Time: 16:00
Place: Villiers, Free State

My mom and I were in the car in town. Something shiny in the sky caught our eye.
I first thought it was an airplane, but the object was moving at a fast pace – much faster than an airplane. It was flying in a reasonably straight line. It made no sound. It wasn’t very high in the sky and it was visible enough that anyone could see it. We traveled along with it until it faded into the distance. I’ve never seen something like that in the sky that glimmered in the sun. I have no explanation to what it could be.
