LOL, shades of the norway spiral, here we go again!!!

Also the first thing I thought of when seeing the lovely mist like exhaust

But did the 2nd stage separate close enough to S. Africa to be visible ??

Yes, I know it was at many miles above the earth - and should be widely seen, but...



I can't triangulate the alt/azimuth well enough...




I think the final stage of the missile was the object seen over SA. Not a booster.

I just tried to. Launch was at about 0100 UTC which would have been 0300 in Cape Town.
Still looks like a rocket though.


In the video, it's stationary. So it's not a rocket or any ejected part of a rocket launch.

I thought the mystery was still ongoing due to posts like yours, Thank you.

Yes we all like to sleep well at night I understand.

Don't rely too heavily on the mainstream diet though, it isn't always in the interests of Truth.

The million dollar question is why are 'they' launching rockets at the same time meteor showers are expected? They know well enough what's 'up and coming' enough to study closely. You see my Daddy showed me a smackdown is on the horizon, so heads up my little sleepy peeps.

Have a nice day all of you and remember to stay tuned to the CNN gospel.

It says latest research on the Geminids, it also mentions sporadic incomings that they don't know about.
There at least three incoming comet dust storms right through to next year and 2014 is thought to be even bigger, but it ain't a secret.

Meh, there's other stuff too and current,

spaceweather.com... or you can go to NASA/JPL and so on for the same info, or just stare at the sky and look for something that's going to make a really big 'bermp' and knock all of us... sorry some of us into the 5th dimension. Alternatively, you could try unscrewing your navel to see if your bum falls off, you never know?

Why does Phage always have to burst our bubble! Life is much more interesting when you open your mind to other possibilities.

Actually, Phage was wrong, and this one was solved by VreemdeVlieendeVoorwep on the first page. Here is a second page quote by them, going into much more detail.

Phage, the mystery is solved. Very nice voice clip from a local radio station where a scientist from Sutherland, where our biggest telescopes are, explains it all.

It was an OTV 3, orbital test vehicle. The flares was seen because of reverse burning to get back into orbit.

Everything there, straight from the scientists mouth.

Sorry guys, no ufo here. It is indeed the x37.

It's not stationary if you look closely. Jim Oberg's link has the detail.

Interesting, I just looked for this dang thread and it finally pops up after I post about it.



I think it's plane breaking the sonic boom and it's not a UFO.



You can go ahead delete my thread.

I like how people are still speculating what it is after a logical consensus was reached on pg2. Also like how numerous posters vilify Phage just because his guess turned out to be wrong, and even admitted it. And how even the OP preferred if we never found out it was a rocket.

ATS gets more classy by the day, doesn't it?



I would've never expected that a rocket launched from Florida would be seen in South Africa. I guess you learn something new every...thread?

Here's some more info on the sighting:


The orbit-raising maneuver was first noticed Aug. 14 by amateur skywatcher Greg Roberts of Cape Town, South Africa, when the object failed to appear as predicted by the last known orbit. After several nights of searching, Roberts found it again on Aug. 19, which enabled the new orbit to be estimated with sufficient accuracy to easily locate the X-37B space plane on subsequent nights.

Also nice google skills vvv

Sarcastic much? I like to go to the end of a thread and see if it was worth investigating.
Phage was wrong? Surely you jest.

S & F! That was awesome man and I know it's not other worldly but it is damn interesting. Thanks for posting because if you didn't I wouldn't have seen it.

The parts would not have fallen in Cape Town. But it was not the North Korean rocket. The timing is wrong.
On the other hand the timing is perfect for the X-37B launch.

Of course you probably have already seen all of that and by that time this post would have been useless :/

Perhaps the X37b is just reaching out to the Koldasians on their most recent visit!

Mulga Koldas!

Thats funky as. Alot of sightings leading up to the 21st. It might be operation bluebeam.


It might be a unicorn or pink angels too.

But it's far more likely to be something 'normal' don't you think?

I was going to bring that up myself but I had a feeling if I kept reading through you would have beat me to it ..

What gets me miffed is that people "experts on a conspiracy website" can look at a tiny speck in the sky that was photographed then do a little google searching and look for something that was launched at a time that fits with their theory nicely then proceed to push this nice neat theory down my throat..... The truth is can people say for 100% certain that,that light in the sky is the 37b or the Korean rocket no they cannot period I don't care how many rockets were launched that day from anywhere in the world ,now in my origional post I did say it was an unidentifed object which is what it is. Don't go fitting it into a nice neat theory and flatly refuse to believe it is anything else if you do then you are a fool ,damn me for saying it but I don't give a toss.

You can see lakes and baseball fields from an airplane. What are you talking about ? You can see farms and roads and the little tiny cars and even people.
