A UFO of changing shapes

Strasbourg. -- Several people, including two policemen, saw an unidentified flying object (UFO) that flew over the region of Bouxwiller (Bas-Rhin) on the night of Saturday 21 to Sunday, August 22, 1976.

Two young motorists said that, around 1 am, an object, surrounded by colored rings, approached their car, four or five meters from the ground, and followed them when they turned around. Moving silently, they add, the UFO changed shape, ranging from an "egg" to an "elongated cigar" and it became dazzling.

According to the report by two gendarmes of Bouxwiller, alerted by the young people, "light jets" came out from the object, triangular in shape when it moved. The police watched the UFO through binoculars from 4am. on

Finally, it is told at the Saverne gendarmerie that the inhabitants of the region also saw the UFO before it disappeared at daybreak at 6 am.
