Two UFOs Hovering About 3 Meters Off The Ground At Barton Stacey Hampshire England UK

 
Date:  January 3, 2012
Time:  6:15 p.m.
 
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of Objects: 2
Shape of Objects: Two hovering vehicles.
 
Full Description of Event/Sighting: Two hovering craft in a farmers field, one with two central white lights and two central red lights situated opposite the All Saints Barton Stacey Church in this field.
 
I was walking up the hill to my house and these two crafts were hovering about 30 meters away from me and hovering about 3 meters off the ground.
 
It looked like they were communicating with each other. These crafts then accelerated away from me to opposite sides of this very long field in an instant and then changed direction again, in what appeared to be observing the parameters of this field by moving quickly across the field faster than any conventional known craft!

2 Bright Spherical Orange Lights Over Sri Lanka Mount Lavinia

 
Date:  January 28, 2012
Time:  10:30 p.m.
 
Number of witnesses: 4
Number of Objects: 7
Shape of Objects: Spherical.
 
Full Description of Event/Sighting: Hi, at 10:30 p.m. today, 28th January 2012. I noticed 2 bright orange lights spherical in shape slightly blinking flying across the southwestern skyline.
 
I quickly called my fiancé out to the balcony and as she came, 2 more came from the same direction and flew along the direction of the earlier 2 and disappeared with the other 2.
 
We called my brother-in-law and my mother-in-law as well. These 4 were joined by three others. Going along the same line and disappearing. This event would have lasted about 5 minutes.
 
There was no noise coming from them. They all blinked slightly and disappeared as if they were going up into space. It was bizarre and we are still trying to figure out what it was.

Bright Orange Object Lights Up The Clouds Over Brisbane (QLD) Australia

 
Date:  January 28, 2012
Time:  10:00 p.m. - 10:02 p.m
 
My wife and I just saw an orange light (silently) fly in a due east to west direction over our house on the south side of Brisbane (QLD), Australia. It was on steady course, no noise, faster than a chopper, but slower than a plane. Altitude would only be 1000 feet at most.
 
Size would be (from our point of view) about the size of a search light. Sighting occurred at 10:00 p.m. - 10:02 p.m. 28th January 2012.
It lit up the clouds above it (it's currently raining here) but it never shifted course and remained below the clouds for the full 2 minutes we saw it.

Orange Colored Lights Spotted Over Oxenden Square Herne Bay Kent UK

 
Date:  July 2011
Time:  9:00 p.m.
 
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of Objects: 2 clearly and many in background.
Shape of Objects: Orange spheres pulsating.
 
Full Description of Event/Sighting: Watched a host of orange lights in sky diagonally move across from my home in the distance moving at speed with no noise in zig zag formation almost.
 
Then two orange coloured lights hovered opposite my second story window within fifty foot on the roof line of my neighbors roof in Oxenden Street for about 10 minutes.
 
My 10 year old daughter was freaked out and kept telling me to close the window and come away as no way were they lanterns, helicopters or planes.
 
I was fascinated and excited at what was happened and emailed Howard Hughes the unexplained website the next day to report this.
 
The lights then moved at speed towards the sea and did not return. I am convinced these were UFOs.

Huge Red Green Sphere Observed By Two Witnesses Over Ayrshire Scotland

 
Date:  January 27, 2012
Time:  2:32 a.m.
 
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of Objects: Mass of orbs/objects.
Shape of Objects: Red and blue orbs rotating triangular movement.
 
Full Description of Event/Sighting: At around 2:30 a.m. I woke up to go to bathroom. Out my bedroom window I noticed a clear bright sky and what looked like a huge plane. I looked more closely before I went and retrieved my binoculars from down stairs.
 
After around taking in what I was seeing, I woke my girlfriend up to make sure we were both seeing the same thing. She just stared at the sky for 5 minutes or more. We both saw a kind of huge red and green sphere or orb rotating in a triangular motion.
 
It was really clear, but looked so far away. I couldn’t understand what I was seeing, was possible. I watched it for another hour and half before cloudy sky’s hampered my view. It changed shape into a circle with all sorts of bright lights bursting out of the objects I was seeing.
 
Also at one point, the lights seemed to light up the sky, flashing in the upper skyline with different coloured lightning, but much softer and without the thunder noise. The sky was clear, bright and the object was clear to see with my naked eye and much more clearer with my binoculars.

Orange Lights In The Night Sky Over Laezonia Pretoria South Africa

 
Date:  January 1, 2012
Time:  12”02 a.m.

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I am from Laezonia, it falls under Pretoria. A minute or two after New Year we saw orange lights in the sky, the one was by it self and the other had three lights in the shape of a triangle, the triangle just stood still for  a while and then slowly moved away and disappeared while the single light moved away at a constant speed and disappeared.

It was very bizarre and strange.

I understand that many people seem to think these are Chinese lanterns, but it is impossible as those lanterns are always moving and this triangle was steadily hovering for a long time.

We are on a plot and were having a New Years party and all went outside to see the fireworks at midnight, to our dismay there were only a few on the other side to where we sighted these lights.

They were also not high up in the sky, we could see the lights very clearly and low down.

I have several witnesses who watched this with me.

If you by any chance have any information on this, I would appreciate if you let me know. Regards.

Huge Amber Colored Ball Of Light Over Arabian Sea United Arab Emirates

 
Date:  January 27, 2012
Time:  Between 00:30 to 00:40
 
Hi, I read you post at http://the-v-factor-paranormal.blogspot.com/ (in fact I was searching for the same). I'm from UAE (GMT +4:00). Yesterday night (27th January, between 00:30 to 00:40) we saw exactly the same which you described in your post.
 
Big amber color ball, at least 10 times bigger than a star we see, moving in the sky. We saw it exactly above the Arabian sea. I was driving, it was feeling like someone was flying a kite with flaming material (we use to see in our native place in India).
 
It was not sky-high, and was impossible for someone to fly a kite in the middle of the sea (in 12 c). It was quite, fascinating! We saw it for maximum of 1 minutes. When I got down to see it properly and take a picture, it was disappeared. We really don't know how and when it disappeared.
 
We are damn sure it was something that we've never seen before. It was not an aeroplane. We drove many kilometers after that to find it, but we could not find it.

Orange Lights Seen On Different Dates Over Brackenfell Cape Town South Africa

 
Date:  January 24, 2012 (Various other dates)
Time:  Evening.
 
Good day, one evening in March 2011 my husband called me outside to come and look at these funny bright orange lights that looked like lanterns hanging in the sky. There were 3 of them and they came out of different directions and flew into one direction almost forming a triangle. 

First the one stopped like it was waiting for the others. When they all reached each other they just disappeared. I contacted our local radio station to report the sighting and they made a joke and asked me if we have been eating “special cookies”.

Again on New Year’s 2011 we were waiting for the clock to strike 12 and my husband shot off a flare or two. As we were watching flares out of different areas, these bright lights appeared again only this time there were 5.

Last night (24/01/2012) there were another sighting in Brackenfell area, only this time it was a friend of mine who has put it on Facebook.

Could you please let me know what this could be.

Kind regards.

Bright Red/Orange Lights Spotted From Kraaifontein Cape Town South Africa

 
Date:  December 2011
Time:  Approx: Between 9:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.
 
A resident of Kraaifontein has seen them twice on different occasions. I cannot remember the exact dates, but also came from the north, 3 of them. They looked like micro-light planes (but very silent), the one was slight in front of others.
 
As they reached almost over our house the 2 back ones hovered for a while and the front one made a left turn and disappeared into thin air. and the others followed just as fast.
 
That was at about between 21h00 and 22h00 in December 2011.

Silent Orange Object With A Belt Of Red Lights Seen Over Centurion South Africa (Picture)

 
Date:  January 20, 2012
Time:  8:23 p.m.

Hi Guys, this thing was not noisy and it could move forward and back which an airplane cannot. It is bizarre that it was orange and had a belt of red lights and look at it on the pictures, I called Evelyn and we just watched and the closest phone was my Nokia.

The funny part is that it looks green on camera.

I have not tried to call the military base which is close to me. The thing is the movements on this craft are 360 and fluid. At this point it was going Menlyn side.

People we are not alone on earth. All those who were at Standard bank we used to laugh at Helen, she might have been right.

Zoom in on both the pictures. Haai.

Brian it happened on Friday 20/01/2012  @ 20h23 (I checked it on my DSTV) there was only one in the air close to see.

See attached pictures I called my nanny to the garden and we watched them for 10 minutes. Pity I was using my Nokia and not my Canon camera.

I mean I live in Wierdapark X2 next to the military base I and both Lanseria and or Tambo are not far from me. When the military does their dry runs we always hear from jets to cargo planes.

This thing did not have wings it was orange-ish with a belt of lights in the middle.

It was the moves that it did forward, backward sideways and how it can shot up and come down and halt in one space that was just weird. I did not even bother calling the base cause I thought if we are not being attacked why even bother.

At least my long life question of visitors from far was answered.  Enjoy the pictures.

5 Lights Seen Over Queenswood Pretoria South Africa

 
Date:  January 20, 2012
Time:  8:25 p.m.
 
Good afternoon, I live in Queenswood, Pretoria.

On Friday night I was relaxing near my sliding door (stay 5 stories up in a flat) when  a bright star I noticed suddenly faded and disappeared. I thought this interesting but assumed it was one of those revolving satellites. Got up to look but could not see it again.

This was around 20:15. Due to this strange happening I kept glancing out the door. At 20:25 I suddenly saw a bright light coming from the north east side (came out from behind the neighboring flat which obstructs my ground level view) on Pretoria in line with the airplane fly route from or Tambo just east of the N! to Pietersburg.

I called my wife to come look as I thought it to be another satellite. As we stood watching another four lights appeared identical to the first. No sound or burn trial if it were planes or choppers or even a meteorite, we see lots of them out there, but they go down to earth.

The four lights, in formation of two each near each other was not going super fast and at first I thought it might have been flares. A plane from OR Tambo then passed overhead nearby the lights in the opposite direction so I am sure the pilot and most in the plane would have seen them.

Seemed to be the same height of the ground. The one light then moved towards the other formation and then seemed to burnout, still not burn trial but I could see it glow and fade away if it was flare why change direction to the side and up.

The front light then did the same followed by the light that was left alone. Quick fade, glow and disappear.

The formation of the other two lights then continued over the flat. We both moved to the passage on the other side of the building and also watch them fade away.

I cannot find anything about these lights, or were they really flares? But shot from what as there were no planes or anything else following the lights. A very strange unexplained occurrence.

Thought I would share the experience and maybe find out what we saw. Regards.

Disc Shaped Object Blue With Red Orange Yellow Tail Over Gordon's Bay Western Cape South Africa

 
Date:  January 22, 2012
Time:  Approx: 1:00 a.m.

Location of Sighting: S34 09.501 E18 53.047, Gordon's Bay, Western Cape, South Africa
Number of witnesses: 2 people, myself and my friend.
 
Dear Brian, I was laying down in my garden with a friend of mine, looking at the sky while we were talking. We both saw it very clearly!

The object was flying very fast (estimate at 2-3000 km/h) in a straight line from north to south, at quite a low altitude and in absolute silence. 

It seemed to be a disc shape with 5 or 6 reactors turned downwards showing a beautiful 'Spielberg' blue color (like a gas stove).

There was also a comet tail at least twice the size of the object and with more red/orange/yellow color added to the blue.

I have seen what I would call UFO in the past, but this one was incredibly beautiful and so close!

I have checked the web, but so far no sign of other witness maybe it is too soon? If you find something or have an explanation, please let me know! Kind regards.

Bright White Light Shot Across The Sky Over Buccleuch Johannesburg South Africa

 
Date:  January 15, 2012
Time:  Approx: 9:17 p.m.
 
Hi there, I saw a bright white light shoot across the sky as I was driving north on the N3 highway just before Buccleuch around 21:17.

I was pretty sure it was not a shooting star or a meteorite. It seemed quite large and as it was shooting across the sky it looked like it had a tail behind it.

It disappeared behind the horizon.

Would like to know what it was and if anyone else saw it too.

Thanks.

UFO Hovers Then Turns Red And Shoots Off Over Perth Scotland

 
Date:  November 1999
Time:  Between 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.
 
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of Objects: 1
Shape of Objects: Could not see shape, very bright light.
 
Full Description of Event/Sighting: It was a cold evening and I had recently given birth to my daughter when I was in my flat located on the Creiff Road in Perth when a very bright light caught my eye over the old rail yard across the road at what is known as the white bridge. 
 
I opened the window as I thought it was at first a helicopter, but there was no sound whatsoever. It shot off to the right at very high speed, so I went out my flat and onto the balcony at the back.
 
It was there over to my left just hovering, but changed colour to red and it then shot off diagonally into the sky. This was witnessed by my husband. I did not call anyone as I thought that people would think I was crazy.

Strange Orange Colored UFO Shoots Across The Sky Over Randparkridge Johannesburg South Africa

 
Date: January 15, 2012
Time:  Approx: 8:15 p.m.
 
 I would just like to confirm this story, we were traveling in the car when we witnessed this.

I can absolutely without a doubt say that it was not a meteorite. When it first came into vision, it was standing still for a brief moment, 2 seconds approximately.

And then with unbelievable acceleration it shot from it’s position to a 7 o’clock  angle.

We rode for about an hour after trying to see if it had landed somewhere. To no avail though.

Witness is referring to this sighting report: “Strange Orange Light Over Randparkridge Johannesburg South Africa” at http://the-v-factor-paranormal.blogspot.com/2012/01/strange-orange-light-over-randparkridge.html

Bright Yellow Orange Objects Appeared In The Sky Over Primrose Johannesburg South Africa

 
Date:  January 14, 2012
Time:  Approx: 10:30 p.m.
 
Hi Brian, on Saturday 14 January 2012 we were having a braai at my brothers house. Me and my boyfriend were sitting outside when a bright yellow/orange object appeared in the sky.
 
It was flying left to right from our vantage point.
 
There was no sound as it glided beneath the clouds. It then began to move away from us and then disappeared. About 5 minutes later another bright yellow/orange object appeared in the sky.
 
It followed the same flight pattern and then disappeared
 
During this whole episode, I had called my brother, cousin and his girlfriend to come witness the objects. The time was about 22:30 p.m. and it was awesome.

Red Light Spotted Over Queen's Park Edinburgh Scotland (Chinese Lanterns)

 
Date:  January 18, 2012
Time:  Approx: 8:15 p.m.

Good evening, I saw something similar while driving through Edinburgh Queen's Park (Holyrood Park) last night (18 January 2012).

Funnily enough it was at the same time as your report on this page, about 8:15 p.m. http://worldufos.blogspot.com/2011/03/intense-orange-colored-object-west-of.html
I entered the park at the Pollock Halls gate, and turned left at both roundabouts.

As I drove downhill, heading north west. I saw a red light in the sky with a bit of an orange tint to it.

It seemed to be a stubby vertical cylinder, very bright, possibly encased by a clear plastic globe. I say plastic because glass would have given a sharper quality to the light.

The light seemed to be slightly diffused.

It could have been a balloon, but seemed a bit large for a Chinese lantern. Chinese New Year celebrations are already under way, so a lantern is a possibility.

I was able to slow down as there was no traffic behind me, but could not stop safely until I got to the bottom of the hill, by which time it was out of my line of sight so I didn't bother. Other cars came up the hill at the same time as I went down, and they must have seen it too.

It did not appear to be moving (but remember I was driving, and had to keep checking the road).

On checking the alignment on Google Maps and Street View afterwards I could persuade myself that it may have been over Edinburgh Castle.

One other thing, as I passed Pollock Halls before entering the Park I noticed a crowd of about 30 people, probably students from the halls of residence, and I wonder now if they were looking at the same thing.

Whatever it was was large, and it seemed to be man-made. Like your original poster, I would like to know what it was too.

Update:
Hello Brian, I asked a friend who works at Edinburgh Castle. He told me that some students released 5 Chinese Lanterns at Prestonfield Hotel that night.
That is close to the Queen's Park, so what I saw was probably one of those. Sorry to have troubled you.

Strange Orange Light Over Randparkridge Johannesburg South Africa

 
Date: January 15, 2012
Time:  Approx: 8:15 p.m.
 
Hi, we live in Randparkridge, Johannesburg, South Africa (West side of Johannesburg). On Sunday evening at about 8:15 p.m. we (about six people) were sitting on our veranda just after supper. My sister pointed out the strange orange light in the east just above the horizon.

At first we thought it was a landing light from an aeroplane, but the more we watched, the more we realized that it couldn’t be an aeroplanes light as it was far too orange and bit dull.

It was also moving a little too fast for an aeroplane.

It also had a strange glow about it and moved in absolute silence. The object moved in an almost exact trajectory from east horizon to west horizon and took about 4 minutes till it went out of view.

It was difficult to judge how high the object was so we could not accurately estimate the speed but from where we watched one could have held up a fifty cent piece and perhaps just covered the light.

I am a bit of amateur astronomer myself so I have seen many unusual & interesting objects in the night skies but this one has me completely stumped.

My best guess is that it was a meteorite, but the flight path just doesn’t fit anything we have seen in the past.

Moon Like Object Over Dublin Ireland

 
Date:  January 13, 2012
Time:  Evening.
 
Hi Brian, I saw the exact same thing in Ireland exactly as you described it. I knew it wasn’t the moon, as this object seemed to be setting like the sun.
 
Also the fact that the real moon was in the sky at the time of the sighting.
It was almost as if the object had intended to look like the moon as from the distance that I was at. I could see what resembled craters of some sort, but almost hazy.
 
It stood still for a period of time until it gradually began to drop over the horizon. From the sounds of it, I was much closer than you had encountered. I’m an absolute skeptic when it comes to ET and conspiracy theories etc.
 
The experience hasn’t opened my mind, I’m sure there’s a logical explanation, but I can’t seem to tell people as what I saw was clearly not something you see every day.

Have you seen objects like this before? Let me know.

Around 12 Round Orange Lights/Objects Over Forty Hall Enfield UK

 
Date:  January 14, 2012
Time:  9:59 p.m.
 
Me and my family saw them last night too! There were about a dozen of them and they moved slowly across the sky. They made no noise and I got it on video. My mom believes in this stuff, and now now I'm starting to!
They were orangey and were medium in size.

Of course my neighbor saw them 1st, he is a science geek, no offense, but he saw them and ran over to get us and they were flying overhead. They were bigger than any star I've ever seen, other than the sun, but I’m not so sure it was a star!
 
Like I said they were moving slowly and the were at least 12 of them.
 
Hope this helps!

4 Lights Spotted Over Ennis County Clare Ireland

 
Date:  January 15, 2012
Time:  12:10 a.m..
 
Hi, My name is (name removed) and I’m from Ennis County Clare in Ireland. It’s a smallish town of about 25,000. About 5 minutes ago I saw 1 small glowing ball of light, I got out of bed and had a look. 
 
I thought it was a meteor, but I always thought they moved fast.
 
This object was moving about the speed of a plane, but it defiantly was not a plane, even though we are close to an airport. It was then followed by three more balls of light, and yes in a triangle formation. 
 
I looked on my phone, wondering if there was a meteor shower tonight and then I came across this, which is shockingly and early close to what I’ve just seen.
 
I’ve been looking out for the last  while and nothing else has appeared and they have long disappeared. I even went around to the front of the house saw noting.
 
In total I saw 4 slow moving balls of light coming from the west to the east. 
 
I think at around 00:10, I hope this is of help. Thanks, yours sincerely (name removed) 16 from west coast of Ireland.

Cluster Of Orange Circular Objects Moving Across The Sky At Delportshoop Area Outside Kimberley South Africa

 
Date:  January 14, 2012
Time:  Approx: 9:45 p.m.
Good evening, I don't know if I'm going crazy or what, but this time I saw a cluster of orange circular objects moving across the sky.

My mother saw about 5 of them moving together.

Round about 21:45. There was no sound coming from it moving east to west.
I have three cellphone pictures of it.

Delportshoop area outside of Kimberley South Africa.

Additional Information:
 
These are the three pictures that I took. I was just wondering do you live in South Africa?
 
If you do, I would like you to come and experience the open sky in Delportshoop, it’s as if the stars is a stone throw away.
 
Hope you are able to see the orange light on the pictures

3 Bright Red/Orange Lights In A Triangular Formation Over Johannesburg South Africa

 
Date:  January 14, 2012
Time:  Evening.
 
Hi Brian, tonight I saw three bright red/orange lights in a triangular formation. At first they didn't appear to be moving, and then they did move into a straight line and back into a triangle. Now, I don't believe in aliens and UFO's, but it makes no sense what I saw.
 
There were low lying clouds (overcast). I did not notice any other lights, such as landing lights or recognition lights. They weren't flares either. As they moved into a straight line, two of them seemed to almost "dance" with each other.
 
Almost like flying in close proximity circling each other. From the angle I was looking at them, it was safe to say they were low but definitely not aircraft or any objects on the ground. What were they?

4 Red/Orange Lights Over PTA And Disappeared Near The Wonderboom Airport South Africa

 
Date:  January 14, 2012
Time:  8:00 p.m.
 
Hi Brian, also saw 4 strange red-orange lights over PTA tonight. The time was 20:00 hours. The Lights were in an "L" shaped formation and disappeared towards the west, near the Wonderboom Airport.
 
Approximately 10/15 degrees above horizon. What do you think, what did the lights look like you saw? How many lights did you see? Strange indeed.
 
Vike Factor Note: The witness thought it was me who saw some lights, but it was someone else who filed their sighting report to me.

Object Changes Different Colors Seen From St Albans Melbourne Victoria Australia

 
Date:  December 24, 2011
Time:  11.35 p.m.
 
Number of witnesses: 5
Number of Objects: 1
Shape of Objects: It looked like a round shaped object.
 
Full Description of Event/Sighting: We were seeing some family members off after a dinner and as they left my mother sat on front porch with my wife and two kids. I was standing up in front of the stairs,  it was a lovely night and as we started talking, and enjoying the lovely weather. 
 
I looked up in the distance and saw these lights that looked like a plane at first, until they started to change colours and make erratic movements. It was moving from right to left, forwards backwards from left to right, up and down and the lights were red, blue, green, orange and white and it was also hovering from spot to spot.
 
We watched it for a good 10 to 15 minutes until it disappeared over the horizon and we could not see it anymore. We were stunned at what we saw. We could only come to one conclusion that it had to be something out of this world, as nothing that we could think of could have made those movement at a fanatical pace.
 
I tried to record it on my phone, but being night it didn’t come up, so unfortunately I have no proof, but there were 5 people outside that saw the same thing. 
 
I told friends and acquaintances, they all thought and said we were tripping, until my brother Googled it and found that other people saw similar things on that night. So now we are quiet confident that what we saw was and had to be Alien sightings.

Bright Hovering UFO With Antennas Over Churchlands Western Australia

 
Date:  May 30, 2009
Time:  2:15 p.m.
 
On 30 May 2009 at 2:15 p.m., I passed on Pearson Street, Churchlands, heading north to Innaloo (Western Australia). I saw a bright thing in the north sky, a round thing with two facing down antennas, stood still in the sky.
 
A few minutes later, clouds covered it. A few minutes later, I saw the thing moved fast upward, left two jet-like trails, and then I couldn't see again, because it headed to where the sun was.
 
What was it? I don't know, but if somebody else also saw it, maybe can inform me and from that we can conclude what it was. Sorry, I couldn't take a photo of it. Thank you.

Large Bright Orange Lights Over Bloemfontein South Africa

 
Date:  December 31, 2011
Time:  Evening.
 
Hi Brian, I read the article in the DFA today about these strange lights in the sky the last few days. I stay in BFN and on New Years eve we saw it twice that night. It puzzled us as it was dead quite moving at quite fast.
 
Difficult to say how high it was. It was a big orange light.

A few nights later we saw it again. It was visible for a long time as it went by.

I would love to know what the hell it was. Cheers.

Orange Lights West Of George Western Cape South Africa


Date: December 11, 2011 and January 1, 2012
Time: 11:30 p.m. up to 12:15 a.m.

Hi Brian, on New Years eve at about 11:30 up to 12:15 we also saw these lights. We were a few people that saw these orange lights and it was also over the Outeniqua mountains.

They appear to stand still and then start flickering and the disappeared at great speed into thin air. They were also in a tri angle, but also were in a straight line. We first saw them on the right of the Outeniqua pass. On the horizon and later more to the west of George.

The last ones was coming lower in from the west and at first we thought it was an airplane coming into land, but it was bright orange with no landing lights and also did definitely not landed. It also started flickering and the disappeared into thin air.
After all the people left our place, I was still looking for these lights UP to 2:30 but there was nothing.

I am also puzzled about it.
Have a great weekend.

Hi, after reading the article in the DFA 13 January 2012 I wanted to contribute to what I saw.

On the 9 January round about 8:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. my father and I sat outside our Delportshoop house which is about 75km outside of Kimberley when I noticed a small circular object moving in a linear movement passed our house.
 
The light flashed like an indicator orange, then red as it moved passed our house. It came passed our house three times. The first time the light shone slowly and the other two times the lights flashed fast. We tried capturing it on camera, but it disappeared.
