UFO Spotted over Cape Town Stadium

Below is a video taken very recently (April 2012) of an apparent UFO that was captured on film over Cape Town Stadium. I came across it while browsing through Cape Town-related videos on Youtube and saw that it was uploaded recently.

Video info taken from Youtube:

UFO in Cape Town South Africa 2012. Green Point Stadium. The video is heavily compressed for youtube. The original footage was shot in HD. There were 2 of them, I tried to focus on the clearest one. My battery ran out, and soon after it was gone too.

What do you think? Frying pan or flying saucer?

I’d say up until 2 years ago I would have been very skeptical, but since then  I’ve spotted a few things in the sky which has made me think twice. One event I remember clearly were the weird blue flashes that we saw in the night sky once.

About a year and a half ago myself and two mates were standing in our garden at about 5am chatting about the night out we’d just had – by then in a sober state I’d like to add. There were very few clouds in the sky and a light South-Easterly breeze was beginning to sweep the city. The Eastern sky toward Muizenberg was just about showing signs of light when we saw them; four, eerily bright blue flashes that emanated from behind a bank of small puffy clouds, directly above us in the center of the sky. It could not have been lightening as that only occurs when north-westerly fronts hit the Cape. They did not flash in any sort of pattern, the first three happened about a split second after each other and the fourth flash delayed about 2 seconds after the third. One of us scrambled inside to grab a camera but it was too late, the flashes did not appear again.

    Sitting at a restaurant called the mount in durbanville, just saw a huge blue ball rise up from the ground and then the same 4 blue flashes! Roughly above Phisantekraal. Not lightning as there are not nearly enough clouds. september 12 2012, at about 9 10pm.

    Dude, is there any way you could post a link to the HD footage? Looks interesting!

  7. Justin says:

    Hi Richard,

    It seems that the video uploader hasn;t uploaded the HD footage, which is a bit of a pain! Please continue posting your sightings here. There are a lot of weird anomalies being spotted in our skies but not being reported.

    Three of us saw this same object last night 11.12.12 at 8.39pm and it was a clear night.We live in Tableview.There was no sound and the light was only visible a few times and surrounded by a misty looking cloud. It moved quite slowly across the sky and seemed to eventually disappear inland. It was very exciting to watch. We took a snap shot on a blackberry which is not too clear. Signs and wonders!

    I am visiting from UK and my sister lives in Tygerberg Hills. She has a large window facing the airport and we had a very clear view of this object last night – sounds very much like the one you describe and the one in the picture. I am very excited about this as it is my first clear, prolonged sighting. I am usually very skeptical about these things, but there is nothing like witnessing with your own eyes!

      I am so glad someone else saw this…I have seen several sightings over the years and also been a bit skeptical…but this was as you said so exciting.Thank you for acknowledging this event. Enjoy your stay here

    I saw a friends post on Facebook about Yesterdays sightings(11/12/2012) But was in East London at around 20:50. Been following it up and seems very interesting, there seems to have been a substantial number of sightings from all over the country. . Bleak I missed it though.

    Saw it last night 13/12/12 at around 12pm over the Cape town City bowl. It looked like a white light in the shape of a ball and with the same misty cloud following behind it. Looked like it disapeared over Table Mountain. Will be keeping my eyes open for more sightings. Verry cool!

  12. Jan says:

    Did anyone see it last night? 13/12/2012 at around 12pm

    1. Frankie says:

      Me too… sorry I missed it. Would have been great to video it. We only have a small blurry picture on a blackberry from the other nights sighting. Exciting times!

  13. kayesseff says:

    I also saw it – but later between 2 and 3 am…… so pleased to have seen this. Have been looking for many years!

    round about 11:45 pm here in kraaifontein (cape town area) on the 10 may 2013 i saw flashes as well also kind of blue. i first thought it was the police (siren light kind of blue) because i was in my room but heard no cars outside so i let it go (as i am not a alien or what ever believer), the light was quite bright ’cause it light up my hole room. the next day i saw a few people on facebook who saw it as well (without me mentioning any thing) , even people in the Strand. any ideas on what it could be?

    Everybody seems to see something at night but I saw something strange at abou 08:00 am one morning. As I was walking to school I noted in the FAR distance an aircraft making a sudden turn. This was too high for anu normal aircraft and there was not one but two of it heading in the same direction. I looked around to see if anybody was seeing this but nobody noticed. The morning was rather cloudy but I am sure of what I saw. I grabbed out my phone to take pics but it was too far away to be seen on camera. It looked like it headed deep into the atmosphere close to table mountain.
