Bright flashes like fireworks – Upper Houghton Ridge

Date: 08/04/2016
Time: 03:20 am
Place: Upper Houghton Ridge
Submitted by: Mark

I saw a series of bright flashes like fireworks behind the trees and above along a whole street that crackled and looked like a welder being used. There was no booms or bangs though that one would hear when rifles are fired or fireworks let off.
I thought that maybe someone was stealing electrical cables but I drove around there and could not find anything unusual? No reports on the local papers or news?
Anyone else see this?
Can anyone shed some ‘light’ on this!

Lights in the clouds | Kensington

Submitted by:

While watching fireworks, I saw two greenish lights over the Bez Valley/Kensington area. The lights were circular but became elongated at times. As far as I could tell, there was no pattern in the movements. At time, the lights would circle each other. The lights appeared to fade in and out on the same spot.The lights seemed to be moving in the clouds. I just want to say, this was on New Year, but I had not had one drink, so I was not drunk.

I saw 4 lights in a quadrangle moving as one thing. It moved slightly in all directions, like it was hovering, the lights are flashing.

If anyone knows what this might be, please contact me, im extremely curious as to what this is. There is an object with 4 lights in a quadrangle moving as one thing. Its moving up and down and left and right like it is hovering, the lights are flashing. Its been there for about an hour now, still moving around.
It’s slightly to the left of bottom of the 3 stars in Orion’s belt.

It is not a star or planet as it is moving and flashing and there are 4 lights to it, this can be proven from the recording i have of it on my phone. I dont know if it is some sort of satellite or something made by humans. Please watch the videos and tell me if you know what it is!

My father and I were driving in the car, he was on the phone with his girlfriend and I saw a strange light so I pointed without saying anything and he started getting worked up and exited because as he look up we saw an orange orb with no flashing lights so it couldn’t of been a plane. It was travelling about 10 times faster than a jet. This was in sandton city at 19:37 it was circular.

“UFO in Midrand on N1” is fake

On 27 October 2015 someone posted a photo on Facebook claiming it was taken on the N1 in Midrand. As you can see there is a large “spaceship” in the sky.

There’s nothing to fear though. It’s a hoax. Someone with Photoshop skills decided to play a joke on everyone 🙂 Here’s a photo of a supposed UFO sighting in India. Can you see the similarities?

Weird Shaped Soundless Object over Allens Nek Roodepoort

Time and date: 7 September 2015 around 18:15
Place: Allens Nek, Roodepoort
Submitted by: A Weston

Dark Brown, almost black in colour, weird shaped almost like a flat Chinese lantern, i think it had the lines of a Chinese lantern – not sure, flying , more like just moving, gliding very very fast. Amazing speed – blink of an eye soundless, heard no sound and no lights not in a horizontal position but vertical – upright position. Was seconds, I saw it, turned to my daughter and asked her what the hell is that, she turned around and by that time it has already moved passed our house and my daughter ran out the gate to follow, she saw it for a second, disappeared, reappeared in a different spot and then it was gone. It happened so fast and just as fast as it appeared it was gone again – It was the weirdest thing I have ever experienced. Not sure at all what we saw. Don’t know.

Cigar-shaped UFO in Johannesburg, Kempton Park

classic saucer-shaped ufo

Place: Kempton Park

Wednesday, 3rd of June 2015 at 19:16pm , I was going outside for some fresh air, when I looked up there it was, a UFO, it was bright yellow-orange, it had a oval or was cigar shaped. it wasn’t an airplane or a jet, an airplane flickers red lights & you can hear it and a jet is too fast to stay stationary. the UFO didn’t make a sound or anything, it was in the distance just hovering there, I ran back inside so I can take a pic but it vanished. Funny thing is my friend was in Edenvale when it happened, he also saw the object, described it the same way I did, two people from different locations saw the same thing. I personally think it was interested in the Kelvin Power stations because they’re between Edenvale & Kempton Park. Continue Reading…

UFO Fleet above Johannesburg

Hi there,

I was sitting on my patio on the 27th July 2015, when I suddenly noticed these white balls starting to show up below the sun. I saw one or 2 at first, didn’t quite know what I was seeing, and thought perhaps it was a packet in the wind.

Once I got a better look at them, they started to appear in larger quantities. It was as though something was arriving. I stopped counting when I had reached 50, but over 50 orbs suddenly “warped in” and started moving in a Northern direction. Some were lower in the sky, some were exceptionally high, and all moving at different speeds. There were a few bigger orbs, but mostly all the same size. I could track them across the sky as they were reflecting the sunlight, and watched them zip off into the distance, losing sight of them due to buildings. Continue Reading…
