I was driving to work, coming up in Stead Ave, heading south towards Brooklyn, when my eye caught a bright light, moving across the sky, from west to east. This was at about 06h05, because the news was still on the radio. At first i thought it was a flare, but the angle was wrong. Then i thought it was a plane coming down, but it was too small for that. It looked like a comet, with a bright long tail. I could see sparks breaking of off the head.
If you guys saw this in JHB, then it must have been a large object …
I am burning to know what this was … My first thoughts now are that it might be a piece of satellite.
I am just glad that i am not the only one that saw this. This is the only mention of it so far, that i could find on the net.
