Jeffreys Bay – An unidentified flying object was apparently spotted 1,000 feet (about 300m) above a plane before it was seen hurtling towards earth on Monday night, the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) said on Tuesday.

The UFO was spotted around 21:30 on Monday.

"A Boeing 737 cargo aircraft captain and co-pilot, flying from Cape Town International Airport to Port Elizabeth International Airport, reported seeing what appeared to be a green object increasing in altitude past the cockpit of their aeroplane, reaching to about a thousand feet into clouds above them, and then returning towards earth at high speed past the cockpit of the aeroplane," NSRI spokesperson Craig Lambinon said.

"The sighting was reported to air traffic control at Port Elizabeth International Airport who requested NSRI's assistance to investigate the possibility that an aircraft or craft may be in difficulty."

Lambinon said the NSRI's Jeffreys Bay team monitored the matter throughout the night.

"The green object has not been seen since and there are no reports of anyone, or craft or aircraft overdue or missing."

Lambinon said the incident happened about 10 nautical miles off the Jeffreys Bay shore.

At first it was thought the object was a green parachute flare, but this was ruled out because the flares "cannot reach that height".

"No further reports of sightings have been received and the incident remains a mystery," Lambinon said.
