A "flying cigar" observed in Triembach au Val

Villé - We have been informed, from a reliable source that Monday morning, when he was just before 6 am near Triembach au Val, a 14-year-old student saw coming towards him at low altitude and without noise, an elongated object, from Neuve Eglise. Frightened, the young man alerted a nearby house while the object with two red lights, turned around and disappeared over the horizon.

Our source, trustworthy, managed to get the following details: the witness is named Laurent Humbert de Fouchy and attends the technical college in Strasbourg. He was staying with his parents Sunday and Monday early morning, he left town by bicycle with his father, restaurant owner and Mayor, André HUMBERT. While his father went to Villé, Lawrence continued, as every Monday morning to the sawmill of Mayor Mr. Meyer, whose son also attended the Technical College of Strasbourg. After dropping his bike in the shed he walked to the bus station near the church of Triembach. It is at this time, after crossing the small bridge by little more than a block from the home of the Meyers, that he suddenly saw at a short distance above him an elongated craft equiped with two red headlights. The appearance produced no noise. It slowly made a U-turn to return to Neuve Eglise.

In the terror which tied his throat, the young man ran to alert the Meyers who once the explanations were given, could only note the disappearance of the craft.

Note that on Monday morning, the valley of Villé enjoyed excellent visibility without fog and it is not excluded that other people have witnessed the apparition.
