This was NOT a shooting star!

Last night my husband and I stood outside and just stared up at the stars as it was a day after new moon. We stay on a smallholding just North of Pretoria. At 21:15 he just shouted: “kyk!” I was also looking up at the time. At first I thought it was a shooting star, but it was way too big and too close to have been one. I have seen MANY shooting stars before, and I can honestly say that this was something else. It streaked over us and disappeared again, moving in a North Easterly direction. It looked as white as a shooting star and it moved too fast to identify the shape. This lasted about 2-3 seconds. Wow! I can’t explain the feelings I felt!

Ball of light over the ocean

12 December 2012
Dwarskersbos, Western Cape

Me, my brother and 2 friends were on the beach to watch the sunset. It was a lovely evening with no clouds in the sky. Suddenly a ball or orb of light appears out of nowhere and moved towards us. Uncertain of what it was we started taking photos. It moved very slow and strange resembling the way a helicopter would fly but it made absolutely no noise. This was even more mysterious. It moved towards us and hovered above our heads. I saw what looked like 3 “legs” or “Arms” come out of it and it started releasing a sort of “mist” and slowly started moving inland and it suddenly vanished. I’ve never seen anything like it and nobody could ever explain what we saw that evening on the beach.

I think I have to just let people know what’s going on…..i couldn’t sleep last night and at about 4am something told me to look outside. Had a fright as I saw a very big triangular formation of “stars” above a neighbors roof, about 3 houses down. It was pointing down and hovering from side to side. Then a smaller triangular foramtion of “stars”, maybe two houses away from it, doing the same thing. These stars looked more like lights when I focused on them. What was amazing was the hundreds of small lights that were either moving towards or away from the triangles. I couldn’t tell because it looked like they we’re switching their lghts on and off. Absolutely no sounds were heard. I then heard dogs barking. I got scared and jumped into bed. I needed to see more and decided to go back and watch for a little bit more. To my amazement I see a strobe-light-looking object above my next door neighbors roof. It was not shiny or illuminated but dark with lights randomly going on and off, like a disco ball, but no light emmited. It also just hovered or floated without and sound. I realized it was now heading from my neighbors roof to my bedroom window.. I jumped back into bed, took my phone out and sent my friend a WhatsApp message. I was scared. All I then remember is thinking, after about 5 minutes … should be right by my window now. I heard a very very loud ring in my ears, I got a severly bad headache and I my hands started feeling very heavy as if I couldn’t lift them or hold my phone. The air felt dense or thick. The next sensation was that if anaesthesia. As if I was being put to sleep with anaesthetic. I didn’t want to sleep, I told myself, but I couldn’t stop it. I woke up in bed feeling very tired. I still have the ringing sound in my ear that comes and goes.

I hope someone out there can give me some advice or share anything similar. Did anyone else see anything or have ringing in their ears or any symptoms that’s unusual? Contact me or leave a reply. Please.

Golden orbs in flight – Southern Suburbs, Cape Town

My Girlfriend and I were rushing to catch a shop that closed at 8pm in 2012 As we exited my front door, we stopped in amazement because a stream of twinkling gold lights were slowly flying from left to right above the backside of table mountain(wynberg side view). They were silent and moving smoothly. Like a thread of lights moving leftward, the left side ones seemed to disappear behind what looked like clouds but wasnt clear. More kept emerging from the horizon on the right side(blouberg side) to join the thread moving across the sky. At one point there were about 13 or so. The light quality is as many have described around the world – Odd in that it was brilliant and sparkling but light quality did not look conventional. Almost like fire but contained in the tiny orb shape. All were exactly the same. I rushed upstairs to get my camera but was too late. The episode lasted a while, possibly 2 or 3 minutes and I specifically asked my girlfriend if we were BOTH seeing the same thing. She confirmed most definitely that we were. She is a sceptic about UFOs, so I am glad there was a witness. I immediately looked online and all I read was the story about a helicopter crash in table bay that was sighted by a few. There was no evidence of a crash but the times co-incide and it was approximately that location(blouberg side) that the golden orbs were popping up from and joining the long line of lights.(even though we were in wynberg) No other people saw what we did (or reported it) which was very surprising because it was there a for a decent amount of time. No sound, such smooth controlled flight plus the golden sparkle/glow/twinkling nature of the lights make me think they were not of this Earth.

I took an off the hip photo of the contrast of the red umbrella against the clear blue sky, and did not notice the object at the time. Camera, Nikon D750, 50mm,f/8,iso-140.

Large UFO above house in Midrand

In September 2012 when living in Midrand at about 2am I was woken by an extremely loud humming sound in the distance. It was travelling north from Pretoria side going south towards Jhb but moving very, very slow.

I lived on a smallholding in a rural area. The humming sound got louder and louder the closer it moved towards my house and the windows and house started to vibrate as it was moving over the property. Eventually it was above my house. I was terrified as it was just myself and my children at home. I can not tell you the shape or colour, and I don’t believe there were any lights. I did not get out of bed to look at what it was as I felt frozen. All that I can say is that the object was huge and was flying very low. It was moving sooo slow and felt like it was just above the roof. It carried on moving over the house and I lay listening for about 45 + min as it traveled of into the distance still moving slow with a loud humming sound.

I have never before or since heard anything like that.

I know that there have been several sightings of other UFOs in Kyalami about 20km from where I lived.
