Durban – Orange Flying Object – 9 April 2015

Time and date: 9 April 2015 at 4:40 AM
Place: Durban
Submitted by: Juanita

Today on Thursday 9 April 2015 I looked at my clock at 4:40 am just after seeing a small bright orange yellow light moving across the dark sky over Durban, South Africa, and immediately wondered if it was a UFO, because it didn’t seem at all like light from the back of an airplane.

It was traveling high in the clear dark sky from northwest to southeast away from the city and over the sea. Just before being obscured by some clouds, it appeared to change speed and direction for a second or so. I realize that this may have been an optical illusion BUT I AM CERTAIN THAT I SAW THIS. After its disappearance behind some thin clouds for a few seconds, it appeared again, fading into the distance as it become more masked by clouds. Continue Reading…

Triangle-shaped, bright flying object in Boksburg

Time and date: 24 March 2015 at 3 AM
Place: Boksburg
Submitted by: Chantel

On March 24 2015, at bout 3am my husband was woken up by a very loud noise what he thought was a Boeing. We stay in Jansen Park, Boksburg and planes fly over our complex all the time. This craft he said was flying away from the airport over a closeby field. It was triangular shaped with orange lights all around the edges. On 25 March 2015, I was laying in bed and at about 2:05am heard a very loud noise that thought was an aircraft too. I couldn’t go to the window as my baby was laying in my arms but as it flew closer the sound was almost deafening and the lights of the craft was soooo bright it lit up our backyard facing the same direction as the open field. I could see through the curtains it was triangular with super bright orange lights. Pity we have no pics to prove what we experienced.

Orange light few meters from plane

Date: 23-03-2015
Time: Around 6:10am
Location: Cape Town
Submitted by: Juan

This morning as I departed Cape Town on my way to JHB, I was staring out of the plane’s window right after take off (as any window seat passenger would) – It was early enough for the sun not to have risen yet, so it was still pretty dark.

I suddenly saw a big bright orange ball / light zipping past. It was at such a high speed that I only saw it for about half a second to a second. It was about a meter or so away from the plane. Continue Reading…

Four Orange Lights in Durbanville

Time and date: 14 March 2015 at 20:25
Place: Durbanville
Submitted by: Janet Kilian

We live in Durbanville, Cape Town. This evening at 20h25 my husband John and I were travelling home. I noticed 4 bright orange lights above us in a southerly direction. Two sets of two were travelling together, moving and slowing to catch up with each other. They all stopped. One of the two sets slowly faded then disappeared. The other set of two just hung there, then two minutes later also faded and disappeared. Then 1 more came rushing across the sky, stopped where the others had been, then went the same way and disappeared.

Orange flying object – Durban 28 February 2015

Time and date: 28 January 2015 at 19:25
Place: Durban
Submitted by: Simone Hulbert

At about 19:25pm on Saturday evening I went out the front door of the flat I live in and looked up at the sky for some odd reason. What I saw next was unreal not to mention unexplaineable. This orange glowing object started rising out from the clouds and sort of hovered in one spot and then started rising slowly then begun to hover and after a while it disappeared. Shortly after it disappeared, another orange glowing object started rising above the clouds and did the exact same thing. I was in absolute amazement. I managed to try and get some video footage on my cell phone as best as I could.

3 Orange Lights moving south over the Cape Flats

Time and date: 10 February 2015 at 20:30
Place: Cape Flats
Submitted by: Tracy Key

I went outside at around 20:30 to turn off the garden tap. I looked down my lane and saw an orange light…I thought at first it might be a plane…but it made no sound. I hurried to the front garden, to get a better look at it going overhead….and to my surprise when I looked up…there were actually 3 orange lights, one behind the other, but quite a distance apart, moving rapidly and silently south. One by one they vanished into the cloud cover and I never saw them again. I’m feeling quite exhilarated to be honest!

Red/Orange Globes

Time and Date: 2 February 2015 23h30
Place: Broadacres (Fourways)
Submitted by: Zain Najim

I was having a cigarette on my balcony when I noticed a red/orange globe moving in circular motions in the North West direction , then vibrating left and right. I kept my eye on in for a good 30 minutes then it vanished. I looked around to see if I could find it again. I then noticed another 3 globes vertical to each other, also moving in the same manner, then a forth appeared much closer to me than the others. They hovered for a good hour or so then also disappeared.

What was awkward was that I kept seeing flashes of light as if lightning was striking. The sky was clear though with no thunder clouds. I couldn’t tell where the flashes of light were coming from. the moon was also extremely bright.

Was very eerie.

Multiple Orange Lights in Pretoria

orange lights in PTA

Time and date: 14th of November 2014 at around 10 PM
Place: Wonderboom South, 11th ave, in front of the mountain
Submitted by: Farhana


On the 14th of November 2014, from around 10pm, thereabouts, my husband and I were visiting his parents and sister in Wonderboom South, when my husband saw two strange orange lights in the sky while he was on the balcony. He then called me and as I went outside we saw another two lights rising up from behind the trees. We called the rest of the family and we saw many more lights thereafter. We all counted at least 20 and all the same rising up from the mountain behind the trees. At first thought we said that it could be fire lanterns (in one of the clips, when paused and zoomed, it almost looked like FL) however as they kept coming they kept their formation and direction without swaying and it was very windy that evening, as well it was raining with lightning, etc, so that thought of lanterns disappeared very quickly.

Submitted by: Richard


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?
