Early last year,it was around end February/beginning March,my husband,myself and our son witnessed a very puzzling cloud phenomenon.
We live in South Africa,Mpumalanga Province,and were on our way to KwaZulu-Natal Province. I was a bit bored,and enjoyed looking at the clouds,it was
a lovely day,with a "living sky" meaning clouds were actually moving,making interesting shapes etc-as opposed to the "dead sky" in the lowlands of our
home province,which often has just this persistent cloud cover,just hanging there for days on end,or no clouds at all.
I looked over my shoulder,backwards a bit,and i noticed this thin stripe going from one cloud to the next. I said to my husband and son,jokingly:
"Look,it's like some lil cloud-creature is sneaking from cloud to cloud" Just after i said that,something came out from the last cloud it had
connected to. It looked like a pc mouse on a cord,almost,and that thing was hauling ass through the sky. We were driving rather fast,my husband was
afraid he was going to be late for his conference in KwaZulu Province,and we still had a long way to go. We drive a Ford Ranger truck and husband was
really pushing it,but that thing kept up with the truck,flying parallel to us,to the road we were on.The window was down when i took this shot,btw.
My Canon was was packed away in a small travel bag,but i had my old BB and managed to get this shot.My husband and son was staring at this thing
too,it was the darndest sight. We were basically looking at it with open mouths going WTH???? It really seemed to be pacing us at very high speed.
Like we were "dicing" Then we had to turn off to the right onto another road,and idk what the thing did after that.
My husband dropped me and my son off at the guesthouse the 2 of us were staying in,in a small KwaZulu town,and carried on to his conference at another
resort.That night i saw an orange-light ufo,idk if it's related to the cloud-pc mouse-thingy that seemed to "dice" with us on the road earlier.
I am posting first the original untouched pic,then one where i put it through a filter to deepen the contrast,and 2 other pics in altered colours,to
just give y'all a good look.
Not saying it's a ufo,idk What it could be. I'm 50 yo and i have Never seen a plane enveloped in a cloud so that it resembles a pc-mouse-and the speed
at which it was travelling,was way faster than the average commercial airliner.Also this thing seems to have snuck/flown from cloud to cloud,and
seemed to wait behind the cloud before emerging. Also it emerged so soon after i noticed it and mentioned it. Just a very odd sight and experience.
I'd be interested in all opinions,but it would be really cool if those opinions are not expressed in snide,smartass remarks and insults.
I shall be back to the thread in the morning,it is almost 1am here and i am going to bed now.Thanks in advance for any polite replies.
