The mystery of the UFO elucidated

We reported in our last edition that a resident of Lutterbach domiciled on the hill had seen two orange starry balls that rose in the sky around midnight during the night from Wednesday to Thursday. Following the call for witnesses launched by the police in the community brigades of Lutterbach / Morschwiller-le-Bas, a woman claiming to have seen the same phenomenon came to them.

The mystery is solved, however: to celebrate May 1st, managers of the Kalis discotheque, rue de la Gare in Lutterbach, had launched to the sky during the evening, several small balloons in white paper, 30 to 40 cm in diameter. The starry orange color that had intrigued the witnesses came from the fire in the pods creating hot air to raise the gear in the air. "We brought these little balloons from Thailand, where they are sent into the sky on the Chinese New Year Yeve," explained Serge Ugarenko yesterday, manager of the Kalis with his wife ValÚrie.
