On January 19th, 2023, a mysterious cigar-shaped UFO was spotted in multiple locations across South Africa, including Thohoyandou, Pretoria, Sandton, Bloemfontein, Bethlehem, Soweto, and Atlanta. Here’s the report of the UFO sighting that seen at around 8:02pm by a group of friends who were catching up next to their home in Thohoyandou.
According to the witness, the object initially appeared to be a very bright star, but as it got closer, it became longer and longer in size. The UFO had several bright straight lights and a ring or halo on its sides. One of the most striking things about the sighting was that no sound was heard coming from the object and it didn’t point in the direction it was going. Instead, it pointed slightly to the right but continued moving straight. The witness also opened her phone to check which satellite it was using the Skyview app and it showed nothing.
As the UFO passed overhead, the witnesses were unable to identify it as anything they had seen before. It was not something that could have been produced by human technology. The object disappeared quickly, becoming dim and then disappearing entirely, possibly at unimaginable speeds.
The UFO sightings were captured on video by the witnesseses and shared on social media, where it quickly gained attention. Other people also reported seeing the UFO in the same locations, adding to the intrigue surrounding the event.

For every sighting that looks like Starlink, you may wish to check the launches on the SpaceX website.
This was launched 3 hours prior to the sighting.
This is a Starlink cluster – just launched – and prior to separation of individual sattelites. All these launches are well publicised. Looks wierd but NOT a UFO.
TomB I don’t agree with you on starlink clusters. I live in Gauteng . Was sitting outside due to hot weather. Clear skies. Looked up and couldn’t believe my eyes. Cigar shape… everything was white…looked like huge windows. No sound whatsoever. I did not see any halo. Was definitely not a row of ‘stars’ even though it looks like it on video. Definitely not a hoax. And not the 1st time I’ve seen it.
THanks and as you say,not a hoax, but it was,most certainly Starlink. I have seen these myself in this configuration both with the un-aided eye and through high definition optics, and whilst it looks quite strange and can appear to move in an odd way, it is still just a tight string of sub-sattelites,moving on a common orbit and prior to moving apart to take up their final orbital position. Also the launch a few hours prior as noted above would tally with the sighting location and description. Starlink is a pain, but not ET, sorry!
I’m telling you, this is real. I saw the videos and there’s no way that could have been a plane or a drone. It was definitely a UFO.
I don’t know, it could just be some kind of hoax or prank. I’ve seen videos like this before and they always turn out to be fake.
But there were multiple witnesses and videos from different locations. Plus, the witnesses reported that the object had strange characteristics like a ring or halo on its sides and no sound. That’s not something that could easily be faked.
I’ve never seen a cigar shaped one. I’ve seen the white orbs snd even saw a weird fluorescent pink strip when I was a child. It was weird but anyway, there was something that people were calling in cigar shaped UFO when it turned out to be optical illusion. It was actually a ship on the water seen from a great distance but it looked like a cigar shaped ufo.
I’m not saying this wasn’t. I wasn’t there so I don’t know but I do believe there are things out there.
