About two weeks ago I went over to my parents house and as I was leaving, my mom said to me “Oh, by the way, I forgot to tell you, we saw a UFO last night.” – she said this so casually as if this were a daily occurrence.
I wouldn’t call myself a UFO enthusiast by any standards, but I was brought up in a very open-minded Ukrainian family. Having grandparents who grew up in tiny remote villages in rural Ukraine, UFO’s were always spoken about as fact in my household. Continue Reading…
10.22pm: 14 Nov 2013: Tableview, Cape Town
A clear windless evening with clear skies. Observed a bright white object originally assumed to be a star, then thought maybe a satellite. However, it moved at a steady pace very high up in a southern to northerly position stopping suddenly and appeared to roll onto its side so it became a half bright light. It then shot up vertically disappearing in less than a second without even leaving a light trail. It simply vanished. There was no noise at all.
Rather freaked out right now as I’m not a believer in things that are not confirmed but I’m going to entertain this and hope that others have had a similar sighting or can even tell me I’m wrong.
This evening, 27/10/ 2013 at about 19:30, I was outside sitting on my camp chair watching the clouds just pass, I saw a 2 V-shaped object moving in a straight line very high up, it came into view between then clouds and then vanish behind a cloud and I couldn’t follow them anymore..
There were no lights on them and they were moving at a massive speed, faster than any plane would cross the sky or even any satellite I have ever seen.
About 2002 a friend and I had left Thabazimbi headed for Northam early in the morning at about 6am. I was the passenger and was still trying to get some more sleep when I saw a strange light over in the darkness to our right hand side, I asked the driver if he could see it and he told me he had been watching it for some time.

Location: Farm outside of Vredenburg on the West Coast, Western Cape
On Sunday, 6 October we were standing on the porch of the farmhouse having a chat. My friend heard a very soft noise which he thought was an plane in the distance. All of a sudden he yelled trying to get our attention. What I saw was one light breaking into 6 pieces, all in a very straight line, moving at quite a speed. At one stage it was like looking into the windows of a jumbo jet flying past. Then it disappeared into thin air, almost like it was moving behind a cloud. Thing is, there were no clouds that evening, none! It was a crystal clear evening. Continue Reading…
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…

Long ruler shaped vertical object, gold in colour, spotted hovering in sky early morning. Very unusual.
The pics are taken from my apartment window on the 9th floor of a building in Roeland Street, in the city centre. I was looking out in the direction of Milnerton/Tableview. The object was stationary and appeared cylindrical shaped. I thought it might just be a puff of cloud reflecting the rising sun (it was about 07h00 in the morning), but there were no other clouds in the sky.
I told some friends and they saw it too and 2 of them mentioned they saw it last night as well.

I see the same thing every 2nd to 3rd night. I noticed it one night when I went outside for a last smoke before getting into bed. I looked up and I looked at what seemed to be a star. After about 30 or so seconds I realized it was moving. My first guess was I was looking at a satellite, but the characteristics of its movements was unlike anything I ever saw. Continue Reading…

This is our third sighting. The first two sightings were a group of fast moving orange lights travelling together coming north going east which was in the last two years. Other people also sighted these and called into east coast radio.
However this morning as I was leaving for work there was an erratic orange light moving horisontally and vertically very fast which is why I spotted it as it was incredibly odd, it then faded slightly and shot very quickly up into the sky. I have caught it on video off my cellphone. Very odd!
Definitely not debris from space or any human aircraft of any kind.
