September 19 1954, 2115hrs


Policeman Louis Moll observed a bright light that appeared in the east crossed the sky, slowed down and came down east of Tromborn. From a distance he saw the object land and its luminosity diminish. It appeared to be the size of a small bus. After 40 seconds the light became reddish and he thought he saw a dark silhouette moving in front of it. Then the object rose up vertically, looking like a red ball that flattened as it moved off to the southeast. Another witness at Tromborn saw luminosity behind the hills, and at Vaudreching, 5km to the west, electrician Rene Paul saw an elongated object with luminous neon light pass over.
