The founder of UFO Research of South Africa says reports of unidentified flying objects off the South African coast near Cape Town rose dramatically during the week of Feb. 21-27.

Many of the sightings can be explained away by meteor showers, said Gert Jordaan, who tracks such reports on his UFO Research website, The Telegraph reported. But many cannot.

“Though meteors do glow orange, some of the sightings reported radical change in direction and speed,” he said in The Telegraph. “Some objects even remained stationary for five minutes or so. There might be some UFO phenomena occurring in areas around Cape Town.”

Mr. Jordaan suggested the UFOs could be due to “some top-secret aircraft” tests — or life forms from other planets are tracking Earthlings.

“The second possibility is that life from another planet is surveying ours for making contact and offering knowledge,” he said in The Telegraph.
