4 Bright Orange Lights Seen Flying Over Fourways Johannesburg South Africa (Picture)

Date:  April 23, 2012
Time:  7:20 p.m.
Dear Brian, this is a photo from my blackberry. The light was very bad (night sky) and the Blackberry camera was poor quality for photos of the night sky.
But zoom in and tell me what you see. Remember that stars are not visible with the blackberry camera.
This was not a plane. There were 4 of these. Each one appears after the other vanishes. I see a bright orange light and it increases in size, as though approaching closer, then moves away becoming smaller.
After 1 minute or so, it is far away but still rising into the night sky until it disappears. Then the next one appears where the previous one first appeared and follows the same trajectory.

There happened 4 times total. They appeared in an area between Dainfern Fourways and Broadacres and followed a South Westerly direction over Broadacres rising and moving away from Fourways until it disappears extremely far away.

They each followed the same pace: very smooth and seemed gradual at a steady pace which must have been fairly fast due to the distance it covered before it disappeared.
What are these?

Check Google: Bright Orange lights in Johannesburg". You will see many sites that have plenty SA recordings of similar descriptions over Fourways, Broadacres, Pretoria, Potch, Durban etc.

My wife, mother-in-law and I saw them. I would appreciate any insight you may have. Kind regards.

  1. I saw the exact same thing tonight in the same area. The only difference was that there were three lights not four, although one could have been out of view.
