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.

I answered on July 12, 2018 by email:

Hello.

I am sorry to answer so late, but I have a lot on my hands.

I would like, firstly, you to tell me please:

1- How did the observation start?

2- How did the observation end?

3- What was the angular size of the phenomenon? (To tell the angular size, tell me in millimeters for example the size the object seemed to have on a ruler you would hold with the arm extended).

Thanks in avance
Patrick Gross
