Strange luminous phenomenon above Feldbach

Wednesday evening, around 7:15 p.m., Feldbach schoolchildren came to alert their teacher that they had seen a strange light in the sky. Indeed, towards the East-North-East, at an altitude and distance difficult to assess, a luminous glow similar to that of a star of the first magnitude and changing alternately color, green, white and red, at a frequency of 5 seconds was clearly visible.

The object that shone intensely moved slowly and irregularly, sometimes circling, within a visual angle of about 20 degrees.

The appearance of the object also changed and became more or less radiant, sometimes with a dot, sometimes with two bright dots in its center.

Many absolutely reliable people observed this for about an hour.

As the direction measured with a the compass was substantially that of the Blotzheim airfield, some witnesses believed initially that a plane was flying over the airfield. With the information requested yesterday at the Blotzheim control tower, we were assured that no plane had landed, or taken off Wednesday night between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m.
