UFO Sighted Over Walvis Bay, Namibia

A strange red light in the sky at Walvis Bay had people all a-buzz and speculating about UFOs and missile launches last week.

The strange phenomenon was apparently spotted at 18h30 on Wednesday.

Witnesses' descriptions ranged from an object that "exploded with a loud thud" before "lighting the whole sky in red", to "something crashing into the sea, leaving a smoky trail behind it".

The Namibian Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) sent a team to investigate the "crash site" northwest of Pelican Point, but found nothing.

Grant Hull of NSRI said they had received calls that a plane had apparently crashed into the ocean near Walvis Bay.

"We had to go and investigate. We were out there for about three hours but there was nothing," he told The Namibian.

Port control at NamPort also noticed the streak over Walvis Bay.

The speculation about a missile launch was quashed by Defence Permanent Secretary Petrus Shivute. "There was no such thing," he said.

Another possibility mentioned was that the phenomenon was caused by a meteorite crashing to earth.

"I never saw anything like it in my life; it was just too weird," a witness told The Namibian.


Does anyone have video of this  - let us know!
