A UFO in the sky of the Robertsau?

Strasbourg. -- Did a UFO (unidentified flying object) pass in the sky over the Robertsau in the night from Sunday to Monday? This is the question that we are entitled to ask, after the usual checks, if one refers to several eyewitness accounts.

In fact, three young girls, working at the Schutzenberger Pavilion in the Robertsau and housing on the first floor of the home, which is two hundred meters away from there saw for nearly an hour and a half a round object like a luminous, yellow, ball. The first woke up at 2 a.m. and had mechanically looked out the window.

Her attention was attracted by the light seeming to illumine the fourth floor of the Schutzenberger pavilion. She awoke her two comrades who, up to three and a half o'clock, observed the phenomenon.

According to them, the luminous ball appeared to bounce on the spot, while having a slight pendulum motion, or a movement of dead leaf carried by the wind - this last movement is much sharper when the object left on the right of the three observers, that is to say in the direction of the St. Francis Clinic -. The object then emitted a whistling sound.

All three are adamant on one point: that of the illumination of the fourth and top floor of the Schutzenberger pavilion. One of them even believe that this light "erased" trees located between the pavilion and the housing.

Basically, this testimony is corroborated by another observer who was, himself, on the pont du Rhin.

It is of course too early to comment on this phenomenon. The Strasbourg sections of CFRU (French Center for UFO Research, 14 rue garlic, 67000 Strasbourg) opened an investigation whose results could be known within one to ten weeks. Indeed, all the logical possibilities explanation should be considered, and it may lead to one of them very quickly. But at the headquarters of CFRU it was noted that last week a UFO was seen in the sky of Saint-Dié, and it seems to be found, once again, the St-Dié - Strasbourg axis, which frequently appears in this topic.
