Reports of objects in the skies over the Cape Town coast have been on the increase in recent weeks.

UFO investigator Gert Jordaan has claimed that a recent spate of sightings took place between February 21st and February 27th involving reports of bright orange lights and flames in the sky. While the exact nature of the objects has yet to be confirmed, some believe that the reports can be attributed to meteor showers in the region.

"Though meteors do glow orange, some of the sightings reported radical change in direction and speed," said Jordaan. "Some objects even remained stationary for five minutes or so."

"Gert Jordaan, founder of UFO Research of SA, said that between February 21 and February 27 many people reported seeing bright orange lights and flames in the sky."
