Residents in South Africa reported a UFO with three bright lights on two consecuctive nights over Pretoria.

"I'm not saying it's green little space men," said one resident. "We just really want to know what it is." The strange object allegedly hung in the air for over two hours one evening before it disappeared over the horizon.

"An unidentified flying object (UFO), which apparently consisted of three bright lights, astounded residents from Booysens in Pretoria for two consecutive nights for several hours."

You see it once and your amazed. Why not get a decent video camera and film the dam thing. Seems to me a lot of people take photos and shoot videos but since they are not taken seriously either I doubt I would bother to do it myself if I saw an UFO. Zam

Zam I have to be honest, your damned if you do and committed if you dont..Even so, we, you need a certain type of evidence to make a judgement. I did make the comment about the Norwegian spiral,how so many concluded the photos were fakes before they realised it was a tumbling missile. Skeptics and believers both need to be a little more reasonable in their instant response. The truth is out there folks. I can assure you I would love UFOs... [More]

And here i thought i was safe from aliens in Pretoria. Well looking at the comments on the website it happened in July. Think if it was true if would have been on the news and more people would have seen it.

A few years ago (before 2000) there was also a ufo crash in the Free State in South Africa. It made headlines on a local newspaper, think it was the "Beeld". Cant remember much of the story though but i do remember the picture on the front page of the newspaper. It showed an alien with a broken leg. Can any South Africans remember that maybe?
