National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 1/1/2014 00:30 (Entered as : 01/01/2014 00:30)
Reported: 1/10/2014 6:05:13 PM 18:05
Posted: 1/16/2014
Location: Johannesburg (South Africa),
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 1 hour
Characteristics: The object made a sound
Strange rumbling/hovering sounds (not only heard, but "felt") eventhough no lights/aircrafts/UFO's where seen

My husband, myself and our 2 kids spent new years eve 2013 celebrating with my parents. We returned home at about 00h30, put the kids to bed and went outside to toast one last drink to 2013.

Immediately we heard an overwhelming rumbling sound, too soft to be thunder, we live too far away from the railway for it to be a speeding train and although it sounded like an aircraft hovering we saw no signs of lights in the sky.

My husband called a couple of his nearby friends who claimed not to have heard it, I made a post on facebook asking the ppl in my area if they're experiencing the same thing (which later on a couple of them confirmed) and eventually my husband and our next door neighbor walked down the street to investigate.

At this point I went inside, climbed into bed with my 2 kids and felt anxious and somewhat afraid, as if an impending doom is upon us. Apart from hearing this awful sound I also "felt" it move through my body as I laid in bed.

This experience lasted for an hour.
