Landing of a flying saucer in Issenheim?

Monday morning at 4 o'clock, Lucien Flesch, a 19-year-old young man living in Rouffach, had a very special experience near Issenheim.

According to his statements he found himself facing a flying saucer, just before crossing the Issenheim entry. It was at a few hundred meters from the road, had a diameter of 5 to 6 meters, a height of 1 meter, and emitted no light. He did not think of approaching the mysterious object, but he insists that the saucer shone under the glare of the moon like aluminum and had the shape of a bell.

However no landing trace was found at the indicated location.
