3 Bright Red/Orange Lights In A Triangular Formation Over Johannesburg South Africa

Date:  January 14, 2012
Time:  Evening.
Hi Brian, tonight I saw three bright red/orange lights in a triangular formation. At first they didn't appear to be moving, and then they did move into a straight line and back into a triangle. Now, I don't believe in aliens and UFO's, but it makes no sense what I saw.
There were low lying clouds (overcast). I did not notice any other lights, such as landing lights or recognition lights. They weren't flares either. As they moved into a straight line, two of them seemed to almost "dance" with each other.
Almost like flying in close proximity circling each other. From the angle I was looking at them, it was safe to say they were low but definitely not aircraft or any objects on the ground. What were they?
If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential.

  1. I'm from Oakley, Ca. My two sisters and I witnessed the same lights while we were driving in my car. There were other witnesses who were sticking their heads out of their car and looking at the same objects.

  2. Btw, there were no flying clouds where we saw the objects. It was a bright clear night and the objects seemed to be moving in different directions before forming a perfect triangle. Two of the reddish-orange lights then disappeared while the one remaining light remained for about 45 seconds and then disappeared.

  3. Oh and this was witnessed at around 11pm in california

  4. I'm from Northern VT and 3 of my neighbors also saw 3 bright orange lights in a triangular pattern (2 over 1) on Jan 14 about 18:00hr EST toward the north. A cluster of 8 to 12 then appeared from the west. They then faded away. It's been suggested that it may have been related to the failed Russian mars probe, Phobos-Grunt, which came down around the same time. But would the debris field be that long?
