South Africa UFO Encounter

South Africa UFO Encounter, 1997

This sighting took place in September 1997 while travelling home from windsurfing on an inland lake in South Africa. The journey took us past the CSIR (Council for Scientific and Industrial Research) buildings on the periphery of the city of Pretoria which we passed on our left. It was dusk and we were travelling in a southerly direction home towards Johannesburg.

UFO sightings off South African coastline soar in February

The founder of UFO Research of South Africa says reports of unidentified flying objects off the South African coast near Cape Town rose dramatically during the week of Feb. 21-27.
Many of the sightings can be explained away by meteor showers, said Gert Jordaan, who tracks such reports on his UFO Research website, The Telegraph reported. But many cannot.

Posted on Monday, 11 March, 2013 
Reports of objects in the skies over the Cape Town coast have been on the increase in recent weeks.

UFO investigator Gert Jordaan has claimed that a recent spate of sightings took place between February 21st and February 27th involving reports of bright orange lights and flames in the sky. While the exact nature of the objects has yet to be confirmed, some believe that the reports can be attributed to meteor showers in the region.

"Though meteors do glow orange, some of the sightings reported radical change in direction and speed," said Jordaan. "Some objects even remained stationary for five minutes or so."

Gert Jordaan, founder of UFO Research of SA, said that between February 21 and February 27 many people reported seeing bright orange lights and flames in the sky. He said that while some sightings could be attributed to meteor showers, others could have a more interesting explanation.

Another Fireball 'burns brightly with a tail of fire'

As thousands looked down on the football field in Tuscaloosa, many others were reportedly looking up at a possible meteor streaking through the sky over the stadium Saturday evening.

An eyewitness in Bryant-Denny Stadium reported that she was surrounded by screaming Alabama fans when "the fireball appeared in the sky above the upper deck and burned brightly with a tail of fire and disappeared within about 5 seconds."

For less than 10 seconds, a bright flash of light was visible over north and central Alabama, according to more than 200 eyewitness sightings posted on the American Meteor Society's website.

The AMS has mapped the reports it received from Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

Accounts from Alabama eyewitnesses – from Montgomery, Auburn, Cullman, Tuscaloosa, Birmingham, Decatur, Huntsville and elsewhere – range from the scientific to the spiritual.

An account from Montgomery reads: "Twilight observation. This was a very bright, sustained sighting that lasted approx. 7 seconds. Very slight downward arcing path. Much brighter and larger than any of the Perseids."

"It was beautiful. Life affirming. I feel very small," a Birmingham witness said.

A Cullman observer summed up the sighting, saying it was "the best meteor that I (have) ever seen in 50 years of observing meteors."

The reports come just a few weeks after a bright fireball passed unusually close to the earth's surface at 8:18 p.m. Sept. 9 and solicited reports of sightings from Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee.

If you think you saw a meteor Saturday tonight, you can report the location on the AMS website.
