Bright Orange Light Moves Over Witnesses In Vredehoek Western Cape South Africa

Date: January 8, 2011
Time: Evening.

Last night we witnessed a bright orange light moving from the harbor towards us in Vredehoek. It had no flashing lights so it wasn't an airplane. As it came closer we noticed it was glowing brighter and it's size and shape as well as close proximity ruled it out as a satellite.

Although it now seemed to be burning almost like a satellite burning up on re-entry, except that it then changed direction and veered off to the right with what appeared to be flames and smoke being emitted from the left of the bright light. It then headed off to the right and slowly grew dimmer then completely faded away.

Duration of event about a minute giving us time to grab binoculars for a closer look. Even magnified we could not I D the object. Anyone else witness this?
