Lights on TM

Postby d0nK3y » Mon Mar 19, 2012 9:54 am

I noticed some pretty bright lights on TM last night while driving towards CT from the Somerset West side on the N2 at about 20h30. The brightest seemed to be coming from the summit of Devils Peak area, and a slightly dimmer one coming from what I guess would have been Mclears Beacon area/ Eastern Table... There were also reports of a light on fountain ledge area, for which a search and rescue team was dispatched to investigate, and found nothing...

Anyone know what these might have been?

Have the Aliens arrived in CT? :alien:

Think you might have been planet spotting - Venus (the brighter of the 2) would pretty much line up with the top of Devils Peak while Jupiter would line up with Maclears at about that time and approach angle.

Did the lights look anything like this?
