They weren’t sure what it is that they saw and they simply described it a large green object. The NSRI investigated and there is no sign of anybody overdue or missing, no report of any craft overdue and the object remains a mystery.— Craig Lambinon, National Sea Rescue Institute
The National Sea Rescue Institute has received reports of a UFO sighting near Jeffreys Bay in the Eastern Cape.
The unidentified flying object was spotted about 300 metres above a plane before it was seen shooting back towards Earth late on Monday night.
There were no reports of disruptions to airplane travel.
All flights through the area have since been accounted for.
