Location: Pretoria (South Africa),
Shape: Light
Duration:5 seconds
Fast moving lights across the South African sky

We saw what we thought was 2 shooting stars, but then realised that they were travelling parallel to each other. They were moving at extreme speed and after a second or two started crossing each other's paths, back and forth. They looked like dull stars moving across the sky and were definitely not any manmade object.

I grew up next to an air force base and their speed was as fast as a shooting star, not any aircraft, and they were changing direction in a flash, zigzagging, which seemed impossible. There was a definite pattern exact to each other and they were gone in about 5 seconds.

We were standing amongst trees so could not follow them for too far. We are both logic and intelligent people that saw it and I am 100% sure that it was no meteorite or anything like that.

It did look at first that they were entering our atmosphere, similar to shooting stars, but then started moving across the sky, not coming down towards earth. They were also travelling hundre! ds of times faster than satellites, which we were looking for. These were something made by someone clearly able to manoeuvre in a very exact manner, only so fast it seemed incredible.

There was no sound as they passed.
