UFOs where I live?

I wondered if there are UFO sighting reports in my own area, Alsace, in France. What are the cases? How many are there? Were they investigated, mentioned in the local or national media? What is the proportion of hoaxes, misinterpretations? Time to start to investigate...

Blotzheim, Winter 1977:

This case is not documented in the ufology litterature at all. There is a short mention in an article of the "Dernières Nouvelles d'Alsace" regional newspaper, on Wednesday August 11, 1999, in an article about with three Alsacian ufologists one of them giving an account of an observation he made when he was 13 years old, observation which was determining in the awakening of its interest for the UFOS. I opened this file in 2001, and in 2007 I was told during a ufology meeting by one of the witnesses that the content of the page is accurate.

An orange ball:

It is a strange trio. Jean-Jacques Goetschy, Thierry Guichard and Henri Loos are ufologists. Their passion: to watch out the skies for unidentified aerospace phenomena. Here is an introduction into their very serious group...

The three ufologists are not at all nutcases. Jean-Jacques Goetschy, Thierry Guichard and Henri Loos from Hégenheim share the same passion: they collect and evaluate unidentified aerospace phenomena within their association "S.O.S OVNIS" (OVNI = UFO), created in 1974. The objective? To devote themselves to the study of the UFO phenomenon by respecting an objective method, without dogmatism or mystical consideration. They benefit of a solid organization on the national and international level, association who has representations everywhere in France. In the East, Christian Morgenthaler from Odratzheim is the regional delegate, assisted by three local correspondent-investigators in the Haut-Rhin department, Jean-Jacques, Thierry and Henri.

Orange ball:

In the order of arrival in the team of the three buddies, Jean-Jacques comes first. At thirteen years already, he witnessed a strange phenomenon close to Blotzheim:

"A static orange ball, size of a house, hovering above a farm; it was visible for approximately fifteen seconds in the night, and then it vanished... I was with buddies of my age. At the time we were not aware of the UFO phenomenon: we were frightened, sweating, anxious, we were paralyzed with fear! It is this experiment, still very vivid in my memory which drew my latter interest in unidentified aerospace phenomena, UFOs."
