Orange Light Over Fourways Pineslopes South Africa (Picture)

Date: August 8, 2011
Time: Evening.

Hi guys, I saw a sighting of the orange light phenomenon over Fourways/Pineslopes this evening. Thought you may be interested. By the time I got the camera ready it moved halfway across the sky, so kind of looks like a bright dot against the sky.

Was way too bright for a star, and certainly not a plane. First moved closer till it was at its brightest, move slightly away, hovered for a bit then slowly moved towards the horizon.

Any answers on this one? Is it perhaps a satellite reflecting?

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

I saw that same thing last night! I was stunned last night, because i didn't get what it was. Now i know. The weird thing is that I am in the united states not South Africa.
