My wife and I was lying on our bed on Sunday night just past ten, when we looked outside the window and saw a very strange light in the distance towards milnerton’s side. It looked like a blinking star, but hovering in the air, moving slightly from side to side and blinking red and yellow and blue lights. We first thought it was a plane but after a few minutes realising that a plane or helicopter presents different and will not stay in the same spot for that period of time. We watched the light for another 20minutes or so, whereby it suddenly started moving very fast towards bloubergs direction and suddenly faded and dissappeared. Blinking sharper and then fading as it went along. It definetely was not a star either!

Lots of strange lights traveling 6x faster than a plane, not a satelite or comet. Saw 4 last night again.

I saw a very bright, large white light over the lower part of Table Mountain as I drove in to work, just before 5am. I glanced at the road, & when I looked up to see where the light was, it had simply disappeared. There was no sound; I would have been too far away to hear anything from inside the car, anyway.
