UFO sighting in Paarl

Place: Paarl, Western Cape
Time and date: 25 November 2012
Submitted by: Shaun van Wyk

I stay in Paarl but was visiting the Lion Park (found about 5 minutes outside of town to the south) at the time, 25/11/2012, I spotted the objects flying in the distance.

I was standing near the tiger enclosure while I was watching some birds of prey fly overhead (the tigers were camera shy so I tried to get some shots of the birds). In the distance I noticed four or five objects flying from above the Afrikaans Language Monument (Taal Monument) and past Paarl Rock in the direction of Cape Town. The objects were slowly spinning in a spiral whilst flying in said direction. With each spin they would reflect the light (it was roughly 3pm) and be visible then fade away making it hard to track them. I took two photos using my Sony Nex C3 with a 18-55mm lens (I had zoomed in at its maximum – I don’t know if these details help at all) in the hope that I would maybe capture something. After trying and not being able to see anything on the LCD screen of the camera I realised, after scanning the skies, that the objects had gone.

The second of the two photos, taken between a half minute and minute after the first, I can’t see anything out of the ordinary. The first, however, has 3 visible objects with a definite fourth partly obscured. I think I can make out a fifth object slightly lower down but zoomed in it is unfortunately difficult to verify.

I’m not sure what to do now. I have a photo I can say with confidence that I can’t explain what the objects are. Everyone I have shown the photo to have no idea as to what they are either. What surprises most is that the objects appear to be flying in a set pattern with one out front and the other 3 forming a triangle (and if the 4th can be verified a diamond) just behind.

Are these objects soundless man-made vehicles doing who-knows-what in the Paarl area, or are they worth trying to identify as something that can be categorised as UFOs?

What do you think?

  1. I think you are all pushing the fact and so want to believe that it is a UFO and not looking and taking into consideration the natural elements around us> Secondly Shaun your photo shows shit man, probably reflections from your lense or a mirror effect that moisture can cause as illusionists get away with their tricks. do you also believe in the tooth fairy and father christmas and the easter bunny?

  2. Looks quite authentic to me. Great you keeping your eyes peeled and ready for fast camera action. Well done!

  3. Stephen, why would anyone post a photo of what is “probably reflections from your lense or a mirror effect that moisture can cause,” and expect to be taken seriously? Did you only look at the photo or did you take time to read the accompanying description?

    ‘UFO’ doesn’t mean, nor does it imply, that it is a craft piloted by little green men from a faraway planet visiting ours and watching over us. It means Unidentified Flying Object; a craft that the witness is unable to identify. The fact that you visited this site implies that you share an interest or, heaven forbid, you had nothing better to do other than attempt to shoot someone down for asking for info.

    The Tooth Fairy and Father Christmas and the Easter Bunny, if real, wouldn’t give a shit about your innate rantings on a subject and nor does anyone else besides that disappointed figure looking back at you in the mirror.

  4. Stephen – trolling at its most asinine. Don’t bother checking the meaning of the word, it means utterly stupid.

  5. When I initially commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the exact same comment. Is there a means you are able to remove me from that service? Thanks.

  6. The concept that UFO beings are time travelers from our own future is also a possibility.
