Weather Conditions: Clear
Description: I was coming out of the house to lock my vehicle, when this strange light in the sky attracted my attention. It was a great ball of "mist" or particles with a star like object perfectly in the center. I ran out to collect my I phone and called my fiance to come have a look. The star then vanished and all that remained was the great ball which i was able to take some photos. The 'mist" then seemed to fade away.
Please find attached photos of an unusual sighting last night in Klerksdorp, South Africa, that I have reported on your web site.
UFOINFO Note: When I first saw the photos I thought of some lens flare type effect caused by the lights on the building but then later saw the following article among others which ecplains that it was caused by fuel from a Falcon 9 rocket :
