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 Rixheim, on January 12, 2015:

Case number:

ALSACAT-2015-01-12-RIXHEIM-1

Summary:

On January 17, 2015, a 47-year-old man sent to the ufology forum "Les Mystères des OVNIS" two videos "of UFOs" taken by his son from Rixheim.

Saying he is a ufology enthusiast, he had received the video from his son who lives Rixheim and wo filmed them filmed "one night" when closing the shutters, one being of a strange bluish light, and the other, the father thought, of a "meteorite!"; he asked the opinion of the forum members.

In fact, the first video, taken on January 12, 2015, apparently, was entirely black, showing no light. As for the second, it did not show at all a meteorite but an airliner with its contrail.

Hello Pat68

The first video you posted is not consistent with the reported time of observation: 00:30

It is likely that this is a high-altitude plane lit by the setting sun.

Given that the time when this video was made is missing it is not possible to search the flights at the time.

The second video seems to correspond to 00:30.

Good day.

Discussion:

The first video on Youtube titled "UFO seen in Rixheim in January 2015," is completely black.

The second video, by day, with the Youtube caption "Meteorite on Rixheim in January 2015" does not show a "meteorite" or even a meteor, but a plane with its contrail.

Evaluation:

Entirely blank video, and an airliner.
