UFO Sighting Report - South Africa

January 1st 2008 : Pretoria

Pretoria South Africa Unusual Light Formation

Date: January 1, 2008
Time: Approx: 3:00 or 4:00 a.m.

Hi there, It was the New years Day Morning 1st Jan 2008. Not quiet sure of the time but I would say at about 3:00 or 4:00 a.m. I was sitting between two friends talking about the coming year and drinking champagne out the bottle. As I took a sip and my head went back I noticed what I thought was an airplane overhead. I had been watching the planes fly over the house the entire night as it had been a crystal clear evening, and they had been taking off from JHB International directly over Groenkloof in PTA. The house is situated up on Groenkloof Hill with perfect views of Loftus Rugby stadium, the Union Buildings and the Telkom Tower on the left.

Back to the UFO, the three lights looked like a planes wing lights and nose lights, however what I did notice was that none were blinking and they were orange in colour. Also there was no noise coming from the formation of lights.

Three lights in total traveling in a V formation at low altitude, orange in colour. Two of the lights in the V the Front and Right light separated from the V as if to go around something in its path and then rejoined the formation. Another second later they went in an arc up into the sky and disappeared. The lights were about the size of a index finger nail at arms length, they were traveling from North to South. This was viewed by myself and the two people I was sitting in between. Thanks.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
