Residents in Pretoria were awestruck by a reported UFO sighting, which appeared for two consecutive nights in the town of Booysens.
"I couldn't make out the shape of the object because the three lights were too bright, but it almost had a heart shape because there were two lights on top, a blue light on the left and an emerald green light directly next to it, on the right side, with a big bright white light underneath it which shone straight down," Engela Van der Spuy (67), a resident of Booysens, told Beeld.
The UFO disappeared beyond the horizon at around 8.30pm on Wednesday night, but reappeared the next night, with Van der Spuy calling her neighbours.
One neighbour, Henrico Swart (19), peered at the object through his binoculars, but couldn't make out the shape of it.
According to News24, the South African Air Force, Johannesburg Planetarium and Hercules police station had no knowledge of the incident.
It's not the first time that South Africans have been stunned by happenings in the sky, with a meteor's spectacular burn-up lighting up most of Gauteng and Mpumalanga.
