Bright Orange Object Over Weltevreden Park Allen’s Nek Roodepoort Gauteng South Africa

Date: December 26, 2010
Time: Between 7:15 and 7:30 p.m.

To Brian Vike.

Weather: Clear sky.

My son and I saw a UFO (extremely similar if not identical to descriptions of two sightings on 1 January, 2011 over Four Ways, Johannesburg, as posted on “Vike Factor” of 3 January 2011) gliding or floating across the sky above our suburb, heading South-Westerly towards the Constantia Kloof/Florida area where it appeared to veer in a Southerly direction. It seemed to be at a fairly low altitude (5,000 meters ?) and maintained a relatively slow but steady speed.

At it’s apex above us, a bright-orange, flame-like glow was clearly visible underneath the object which, from our perspective, appeared round with a diameter of something between a ping-pong ball and a tennis ball.

After our line of sight to the object had reached approximately 45 degrees, the orange glow gradually disappeared, leaving the flat-oval dark silhouette of the object barely visible against a darkening sky. We lost sight as it curved into a Southerly heading. The object produced no sound.

Our sighting lasted for maybe one minute. We both concluded that the object was not an aeroplane, glider, balloon, helicopter or similar flying machine and it was way too dark already for it to have been a reflection of sunlight against the metal of a fuselage. It was most definitely also no shooting star or satellite, meteor.

This was our first such sighting. Not being a skeptic, my curiosity led me to ‘Google’ for other possible similar reported sightings around the same time. I came across many, with practically identical descriptions, from places around the world, between late November 2010 to early January 2011! What’s happening?

If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: sighting@telus.net with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential.
