Hot on the heels of news that Durban scientists have discovered cannabis-like plants make a good mosquito repellent, someone’s only gone and posted a video onto YouTube which allegedly shows a UFO flying above the shore of the KZN capital.

Shurely shome coincidence, captain?

Personally I’ll reserve judgement as to whether or not the evidence of alien attack is legit or not, but Fortean fans out there will love it. The video basically shows a very shiny dot flying above the clouds and shimmering a bit. Apparently taken earlier this week. Not exactly conclusive, but fun.
