Red Ball Of Flame Over Blouberg Beach Cape Town South Africa

Date: March 19, 2011
Time: 8:00 p.m.

Number of witnesses: 2
Number of Objects: 1
Shape of Objects: Round and then box like.

Full Description of Event/Sighting: Brian, I was lying on the couch when he said quickly, look at that outside. We both got up and stood on the balcony. About 2km in line with Robben Island we saw a ball of flame which at first seemed like a flare. The shape then changed to a lantern (box) like object which was very clear to see and you could almost see through it.

The object then moved very quickly in a northerly direction, towards Melkbos and the light remained red and very clear to see. It then disappeared from sight. This whole event was very clear and we had time to see what it looked like especially when it was lantern (box) like.

Throughout the whole time, no sound whatsoever came from the flying object which was very strange. We still cannot work out what it was, but looked it up on the internet and found your site.

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. website:
