An "unknown flying object" also above Battenheim

During last week the "unknown flying objects" as they are called circulated several times around Mulhouse, or even in the city. Thus we have been reported from Dornach that one of them stopped in a gully. Friday, residents of Wittenheim witnessed the show of a "flying disc", and Saturday evening in Battenheim Mister S. D. was the witness of an unexplanable inciden. In Battenheim eight days ago already a similar event was observed, but not with the same precision.

Mister S. D., farmer in Battenheim, was at 08:30 p.m. in front of his house and was preparing to cross the roadwhen at the top of the street, a very sharp light caught his attention. He first thought it was a car's headlight and even thought that its light was blinding.

The beam was however much stronger than that of a car. Mister D. realized that it was located at about fifty meters above the ground surface. It came from a big object of spherical shape.

To make sure that it was not an illusion, he went closer to the phenomenon. As he was only at a few meters of this dazzling sphere, it suddenly changed its color to take the colors of the rainbow and rose suddenly vertycally.

As it was going away it seemed to change its flight position and take the shape of a plate.
