“strange “orange / red lights” moving in different direction over us in the sky. we are in Hermanus S.A. Someone said it is “Chinese Lanterns” and it happens on “new Year’s eve” like tonight.
“Can it be and how come they move in different directions? Can the different airwaves have something to do with it?
It moves fast and then fades. We are curious – can you please answer me?
