A South African witness at Potchefstroom reported watching a triangle-shaped object that moved to near ground level, according to testimony in Case 82597 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness and a friend were sitting outside at 7:45 p.m. on March 10, 2017, talking and drinking tea.
“We saw a flickering object near the moon as big as a star and we thought it was just a plane,” the witness stated. “But it didn't make a sound. When we looked again, it changed direction and was hovering in weird motions.”
The witness then noticed the object’s shape.
“That's when we saw it was triangular in shape with red and white flickering lights on each edge. We didn't pay much attention to it since we thought it could just be a satellite, but that's when things got weird,”
The object moved very close to the witness.
“We turned around and saw the triangular black object hovering right behind us. It was huge. It seemed quite impossible since it was so far away in the sky and now it was right by our side. Me and my friend looked at each other, shocked and confused. We thought we lost our minds, but the object was right there. The object changed direction again above us, moving higher from the ground, going in a north direction again and moving towards the ground like it wanted to land.”
