My mom daughter and i were at the pool when i looked up and saw two very bright lights under cloud level flying towards each other at great speed. They then stopped and half circled each other. The one shot off in direction of pretoria at impossible speed, from bright to almost invisible light instantly. The other shot up vertically where it then stopped above cloud level, where it was visible between the clouds, hovering for at least 20 minutes.
By now we were back at the house and i kept going back to look at it. The last time i looked, two bright flashes of white light appeared to the bottom left and bottom right of it but disappeared instantly. This was not a meteor or shooting star, it was not a lantern or weather balloon. It was not a helicopter, aeroplane, or anything ive seen before. The speed, instant stopping, and vertical trajectory i saw are simply not possible. My mom and daughter saw the lights too. I have attached a photo of the second object while it was hovering. It is of course tiny and unclear so enlarge to view better. No idea what we saw
