Between Saverne and Bouxwiller

Two young people
followed by a UFO

Two gendarmes among the witnesses

Two young people from Monswiller, near Saverne, two gendarmes from the Bouxwiller brigade and several other people from this region saw an unidentified flying object on the night from Sunday to Monday. This new UFO case is of a very serious nature because of the number of testimonies and the observation that could be made by the gendarmerie.

Around 1 a.m. on Sunday, two young people were driving on the CD 219 in the direction of Ernolsheim-Monswiller when, at the southwest exit of Dochsenheim-sur-Zinzel, they saw a luminous ball on the road, right of their vehicle. It was 10 cm in diameter and was surrounded by multicolored rings. It was 4 or 5 meters above the young people's car, which it was following in a curve from back to front.

When the object, still according to the testimony of the young people, seemed to rush on the car, they suddenly turned around to return to Monswiller. The UFO then changed shape and color. The glow had turned blue and purple, but very blinding.

In Monswiller, the young people then observed the UFO very high in the sky. It had changed shape again. A luminous disc, a very elongated cigar... with all the colors, but its movement was then done slowly.

The phenomenon could be observed, by chance, several kilometers away, by two gendarmes of the Bouxwiller brigade, between logwiller and Bouxwiller, until 4 a.m.

They watched it through binoculars. The UFO now showed the shape of a triangle surrounded by luminous dots which became more intense with each displacement. Two very bright glows were then perceived similar to that of aircraft nozzles.

Before daybreak, residents of Monswiller were also able to follow the UFO in the sky. It disappeared around 6 a.m. But all the testimonies are unanimous: the phenomenon has always been silent.

This case will undoubtedly generate much attention. It is all the more interesting since the witnesses were not all in the same place and they did not know each other. The gendarmerie took this matter very seriously. They recorded all the testimonies. Starting with those... of the gendarmes.
