ALSACAT:

As its name suggests, ALSACAT is my comprehensive catalog of UFO sighting reports in Alsace, the region is the North-East of France, whether they are "explained" or "unexplained".

The ALSACAT catalog is made of case files with a case number, summary, quantitative information (date, location, number of witnesses...), classifications, all sources mentioning the case with their references, a discussion of the case in order to evaluate its causes, and a history of the changes made to the file. A general index and thematic sub-catalogs give access to these Alsatian case files.

State of movement of the object(s): The oject floated but I did not see it disappear. I lost the sight of the object because of the trees of the edge of the road, we were in a car.

Other comments: I would like to know if others saw it?

Before your observation, what did you think about UFOs? I thought it was possible that they exist.

What do you think now about UFOs? I am not certain of what I have seen but it is interesting

Discussion:

I assigned the case to the town of Wissembourg, but it is pure convenience; we only know that the witness said the UFO appeared to be north of his position and above Wissembourg.

I see no strangeness in this report.

Evaluation:

Possible plane or blimp.
