Full Description of event/sighting: Santiago Yturria's report on a fleet of UFOs over San Luis Potosi mirrors an exact sighting made earlier this year on February 5th 2005 in Cape Town, South Africa. My apartment overlooks Cape Town's Harbour. It was a clear afternoon with a southerly 15 knot wind. Myself and three others were relaxing on the balcony, when we observed approximately 60 white spheres slowly moving in a SE directing. At first glance they seemed to be white balloons that were the size of a pea at arms length.

However their movements did not resemble objects floating at the winds mercy. Several tacked back against the traffic as if on their own agenda. The break-away group were actually floating against the general wind direction. At about this time a friend from across the harbour phoned. I asked him could he see any objects in my direction. After climbing onto his roof he should've had a similar view from the opposite side I had. To my surprise however, all he could see was a white haze with no discernable spheres at all.

After 35 minutes all spheres travelled away from the harbour and out of view over Table Mountain. The apparent "white haze" visible from across the bay had also disappeared. These were definitely no balloons!

Thank you to the witness for the interesting report.
