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.

Bitche (57) juillet 2017, recherche témoignage

Message par Admin le Dim 14 Jan - 10:17


Un phénomène lumineux a été observé en juillet 2017 sur Bitche.

Nous sommes à la recherche de témoins.

Merci de nous contacter.


As this is a call for witnesses, one undertands that SPICA did not want to give any detail. So it is impossible to me to say anything more about this for now.


Totally insufficient information.
