About 30 minutes ago (around 9:45) me and 4 members of my family and next door neighbours saw a very bright orange round light hovering in the sky in the direction Silvermine. It was a very bright, completely silent orb that radiated “flares” of light like a very bright candle would if viewed in the dark.
We watched it in the same position in the sky for about 5 minutes until it began to fade, and blinked out. After we had run to grab cameras it had re-appeared in the same spot in the sky but brighter this time and it moved slowly right over directly above the house. It then receded backwards and started fading again but this time it ‘turned off it’s lights and a very distinctive whitish grey semi translucent disc shape was visible against the sky!
This then moved of to the left, towards Muizenberg at quite a speed. This is the same type of orange orb that has been seen all over Cape Town, the same as the 3 I saw on the 24th of December but much brighter and much closer. Very eerie!
I have plenty of video footage on my camera phone but it doesn’t even come close to capturing what we all saw and the white disc did not show up on camera.
