Date of Sighting: January 1, 2011
Time of Sighting: 8:13 and 8:26 PM Local Time
Location of Sighting: Johannesburg, South Africa

Description: An orange light was seen in the sky last night at 8.13 PM and again at 8.26 PM. The date was 1 January 2011. The sighting occurred in Fourways, Johannesburg, South Africa. One person saw the orange light in the sky at 8.13 PM over Fourways in Johannesburg. He came into the house to tell us and it had disappeared by the time we got outside. At 8.26 PM he went outside and saw an orange light again this time. It was still in the sky when we got outside. It was very low in the sky. We were able to photograph it before it went away again. It moved straight towards us before stopping. It then moved away from us at a slow steady pace (too slowly to be an airplane, with no sound). The light eventually disappeared. See attached photographs.

Note: The above photo was taken with a Canon PowerShot SX30 IS digital camera. The camera has a maximum resolution of 14.1 megapixels. The photo appears to be the original unedited photo output from the camera. Two of the photos sent show an orange light and 2 show a red light. The light was either changing colors or appeared a different color due to camera effects. Two cameras were used. The above camera revealed a red light in both photos. A cell phone camera showed the object to be orange in two photos.
