UFO spotted 1 000 feet in sky before hurtling towards earth
A Boeing 737 cargo aircraft captain and co-pilot, flying from Cape Town International Airport to Port Elizabeth International Airport, reported seeing what appeared to be a green object increasing in altitude past the cockpit of their aeroplane, reaching about a thousand feet into clouds above them, and then returning towards earth at high speed past the cockpit of the aeroplane,” NSRI spokesperson Craig Lambinon said.
“The sighting was reported to air traffic control at Port Elizabeth International Airport who requested NSRI’s assistance to investigate the possibility that an aircraft or craft may be in difficulty.”
Lambinon said the NSRI’s Jeffreys Bay team monitored the matter throughout the night.”The green object has not been seen since and there are no reports of anyone, or craft or aircraft overdue or missing.” At first it was thought that it could have been a parachute flare but this was discounted as a 1000 foot parachute flare (or 300 meters) cannot reach that height.
“No further reports of sightings have been received and the incident remains a mystery,” Lambinon said.The incident happened about 10 nautical miles off the Jeffreys Bay shore.
