UFO Was Rocket, Says Retired Astronomer

     JOHANNESBURG - An object seen in the sky across the country on Sunday was a rocket and not a UFO as it was widely believed, a satellite tracking expert said on Monday.

Retired astronomer from Cape Town, Greg Roberts said: "What happened was that at 6pm our time yesterday [Sunday] a rocket, called Falcon, was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California and carrying several satellites.”

"The rocket was designed by a company called Spacex which has former South African Elon Musk as founder and chief designer."

Roberts said the rocket was launched southwards from California towards the south-polar regions, which it passed over.

It started heading northwards again and just east of South Africa.

"Shortly after 7pm it apparently either vented or released rocket fuel still in its fuel tanks as the basic mission of placing several satellites in orbit had been achieved while over the Antarctic region and this produced the large halo-like object that people saw." . . .
