UFOs in the daily Press:

UFOs in Alsace, 1977:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper DernièRes Nouvelles d'Alsace, France, July 8, 1977.

A UFO in the sky of Haut-Rhin?

An unidentified flying object may have crossed the Upper Rhine sky last night. In any case, several witnesses reports may indicate this, though, as always in such cases, one should be cautious.

The most interesting of the stories that reached us comes from a couple living in Sainte-Croix-en-Plaine. "It was 5:50 a.m., explained the lady who wishes to remain anonymous, when my husband and I were awakened by the barks of our dog. We tried to silence it, but there is nothing to do. So we looked out of the window bay in the direction it was staring.

"That's when we saw above the trees of the forest of Herrlisheim, lights: there were three that could be described as headlights, one next to the other, and, below, two smaller reddish lights; the lights went, came back, went away in a kind of horizontal swing. It lasted two to three minutes, then the lights disappeared behind the buildings of a factory; which prevented us from continuing our observation."

A resident of Mulhouse also made a similar observation. Yesterday morning a man came to the Colmar aerodrome control tower to ask if they had noticed something abnormal, like he did. The answer was negative, as the control work started only a bit later.

This observation could be interesting. Indeed, it is not common that an animal gives the alert, but it is a phenomenon already observed that animals are affected by an unusual presence of this type, the description of the lights is of a classic UFO type; the witnesses were at different locations.

Moreover, there was no movement of planes from the base of Colmar-Meyenheim and the Colmar Airfield, where the first plane took off at 6:28.
