The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Cecil, thou art avenged! Lions fatally maul poachers who broke into reserve to hunt rhinos
At least three poachers who broke into a rhinoceros reserve met a gruesome fate when they were mauled to death by a pride of lions, according to a report.

The hunters were torn to shreds by the big cats at the Sibuya Game Reserve in Kenton-on-Sea, South Africa, where staffers on Tuesday discovered bloody body parts, including a head and limbs, the Daily Express reported.

“The lions are our watchers and guardians and they picked the wrong pride and became a meal,” said Nick Fox, 60, who owns the reserve. “Whilst we are saddened at any loss of life, the poachers came here to kill our animals and this sends out a very clear message to any other poachers that you will not always be the winner.”
Poachers!
