UFO SIGHTING REPORT
March 6th 2004
Original Sighting Report:
Location: Riviera Pretoria Gauteng RSA
Date: 03/06/04 11:44pm GMT +2 (local time)
Approach Direction: South
Departure Direction: East
Witness Direction: North
Description: Friend and I were sitting chatting in our lounge - looking outside northwards - and I pointed out what I thought was a flare - it grew brighter but remained motionless, without the usual flare's downward path. It was yellow / white colour.
It then rapidly faded - and moved off to the east in a perfectly straight line - we lost sight of it as it moved behind the mountains.
Color/Shape: Like a flare - bright white then yellow. Round. Brightness faded too quickly for a flare.
Height & Speed: Motionless when noticed - then moved off maybe 1200Km/h by distance estimate
Follow-up by Brian Vike:
Hello there Brian,
Sorry for the late reply - a very busy day!
ok - as folllows:
One other witness - Sonica S****** - I mailed her your reply! I'm sure she
will mail you - but she doesn't check mail too often - so patience.
As mentioned - it first looked like a flare - but just kept getting
brighter. This was nothing like a plane or even search light from a
opter - which we often see from our house up on a hill.
It was not moving -that's the first pointer to it being an oddity.
perspective change was not there - it was still. When it started fading - it
too was still - no change in position.
There was no sound - no motor or rotor noise! We would've heard it if it
were a plane or copter.
This lasted for maybe two minutes? Not sure - we only caught on to it being
out of the ordinary when it started moving.
It didn;t appear to accelerate at all - just moved away at a uniform pace
and dissapeared behind a hill.
no trail whatsoever!
It was low - no more than about 100m - judged by using the hills as
It was over cast - low clouds.
I couldn;t get a number for air traffic control - so I don;t know - but this
is in the middle of Pretoria - central - !
Not aware of any others witnessing this.
That's about it!
If I learn more - I will inform you.
It sounded similar to:
Please let me know if you learn anything?
but not quite brighter than sun!
Do you know this site?:
