Here I also go over the feasibility and credibility of the case.

Based on supporting the evidence I am convinced that the 1965 South African UFO Wave and Highway Landing more than likely did happen.

The evidence is very compelling and this incident deserves further investigation.

Sequence of events

16 September 1965, early evening: Residents of the East Rand (near Johannesburg) report an “enormous white light” and a “red ball” in their skies.

16 September 1965, midnight: Constables John Lockem and Koos de Klerk observed a shiny, copper-coloured craft shaped like a “spinning top” which had landed next to the white middle line of the Pretoria–Bronkhorstspruit road.

Their patrol vehicle allegedly cuts out when the craft started rapidly ascending, while emitting a sea of flames through two portals below.

The 30 feet (9.1 m) wide disc, shaped like a spinning top, darted silently in a north-westerly direction, leaving the asphalt ablaze for many minutes afterwards.

Later investigation showed that part of the road was caved in as if from a heavy weight and gravel had been separated from the tar in a severely burned area about 6 feet in diameter.

The investigative scientists from the CSIR ridiculed the saucer explanation. Samples of the road surface were taken for analysis; the report has never been made public.

According to NICAP, the incident was confirmed in a press release by Lt. Colonel J. B. Brits, district commandant of Pretoria North. He told the newspaper that the incident was considered “as being of a highly secret nature and an inquiry is being conducted in top circles.”

Constable Lockem, aided by a staff artist of “Die Vaderland” newspaper, provided a sketch of the craft.

Note the proximity to the other UFO cases I’ve covered.

Is this Northern region of South Africa the equivalent to California’s UFO Alley?

My Conclusion

  • Multiple witnesses had seen the UFO’s and two police officers witnessed the landed craft
  • Trace evidence which was left behind was taken by Scientists (no findings have been provided)
  • The data and information presented appears credible and the case is registered with NICAP
  • The incident remains compelling and deserves further investigation
