I was up early and went outside. Some of the bigger planets were already risen.Jupiter towards the Western Horizon and the crescent moon and Venus in the East. The bright star Porrima facing North. I decided to get my sky binoculars 15×70 mm which are sometimes do to look at the positions of the moons of Jupiter. I could only see one moon to the left and was wondering where the others where.

I held down my binoculars for a while looked up at the sky an saw a bright star like object almost as large as Jupiter.It had a whitish luminosity. I immediately fixed my binoculars to this strange object. It was clearly similar in appearance to a bright star. However after a few seconds its glow dimished substantially to that of a less prominent star but still travelling in a Northly direction. I gage its speed was similar to that of a passenger airliner.

I followed the point like object for about two minutes before it was out of visibility.

Iam curious to know what type of spacecraft can glow so brightly to a magnitude as bright as Jupiter and then switch off and reduce its intensity.

Silver hovering object – Hartbeespoort

On 2015-06-10 @ 15H30 I was traveling between towards Mooinooi from Harties on the R104 when I noticed a silver object (kind of like a blimp) on the North Western side of the road. The object was hovering about 2km away from where I was. I had to focus on the road, as the road is not very wide and there were cars approaching from the front. I glanced at the road, then I looked at the object again about 6 times. Then, I looked back at the road for a split second, and when I looked up the object was gone. I pulled off the road to look for the object, but it was GONE! The object did not make a sound (that was audible to me) and it had no lights.

Metal, Triangular-Shaped Craft Emitting Lighting-Like Beams

Time and date: 12 October 2014 at 8 PM
Place: Between Vaalkop and Bakkrans
Submitted by: Anita de Lange

On Sunday evening, around 8pm, my brother phoned us to go outside and look at the sky – to hear if we saw what him and his weekend guests and farm workers were all seeing: a big triangular white metal shape with maling multi-coloured lights hovering above the area between the Vaalkop and Bakkrans. He said the object was bigger than the largest star, smaller than the moon and very bright in the sky. It was making no noise, and expelled lightning like light beams down to the ground. It was too high and too big to be a helicopter. It was slowly rising in the sky. Unfortunately we could not see anything as our farmhouse (about 10km from my brother’s as the crow flies, with the Vaalkop in between) are between mountains and high trees. Continue Reading…

Multiple sightings in Hartbeespoort area

I have seen a number of very strange things in the sky in the Hartbeespoort area during the last weeks. Apart from the fuel dump of SpaceX’s Falcon spacecraft which left a halo ring in the atmosphere I actually saw unidentified objects in the sky on four occasions during the last four weeks.

One night I was driving home from Meerhof to Ifafi at about 10:15 when I saw whap appeared to be a disk with multiple golden yellow lights on its edge floating overt the dam in front of the Magaliesberg mountains. It moved overt he mountain and thereafter disappeared from view. Continue Reading…
