Shape: Light
Duration:3 seconds
very Fast moving light South Africa near Heidelberg.

Hi I am a South African. On my way to the coast for vacation. Saw the light approaching a toll gate 80km South of Heidelberg, my dad, said that it was a shooting star but did not have the streak/tail you usually see.

It was unusually close to the ground. I have been to a lot of air shows so it was no jet. Don't think its aliens or something like that.

Would like to know if South African Radar or Weather service saw anything, and if any one else saw something.

Thanks hay H, age 22
