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.

Case of Strasbourg, on January 15, 2012:

Case number:

ALSACAT-2012-01-15-STRASBOURG-1

Summary:

On January 28, 2012, Christian MacÚ, who runs a "UFO Paranormal" blog, announced he received an email reporting a "Strange noise or sound in Strasbourg in Alsace on January 15, 2012."

The story said:

"Living in Alsace we heard around 4 a.m. in the night from Tuesday to Wednesday a strange noise that caused the sound of a fire alarm, a strident sound, unique and arrived just before the alarm that has sounded only once, could it have any connection with the facts that occurred in Belgium?"

It is because a UFO (four lights in the sky first immobile and then leaving quickly) had been reported seen in Mons in Belgium (330 kilometers from Strasbourg) the same day but at 9 p.m., that both cases were linked.

[Ref. cm2:] CHRISTIAN MACE:

On this matter, Great Thanks to our Reader from the Alsace region, who reported this in his commentary to our article below:

http://ovniparanormal.over-blog.com/article-deux-temoins-ont-vu-un-ovni-dans-la-region-de-mons-en-belgique-mardi-soir-15-mars-211-69509199.html

"Living in Alsace we heard around 4 a.m. in the night from Tuesday to Wednesday a strange noise that caused the sound of a fire alarm, a strident sound, unique and arrived just before the alarm that has sounded only once, could it have any connection with the facts that occurred in Belgium?"

Discussion:

The link with the observation in Belgium is obviously more than doubtful.

To linl the 4 a.m. sound in Strasbourg to UFOs is also very doubtful. The sound is said to have triggered an alarm, it may be a car accident or whatever.

Even the location in Strasbourg seems doubious, since the witness only writes: "Living in Alsace..."

Evaluation:

Relation with UFOs not established.
