As its name suggests, ALSACAT is my comprehensive catalog of UFO sighting reports in Alsace, the region is the North-East of France, whether they are "explained" or "unexplained".

The ALSACAT catalog is made of case files with a case number, summary, quantitative information (date, location, number of witnesses...), classifications, all sources mentioning the case with their references, a discussion of the case in order to evaluate its causes, and a history of the changes made to the file. A general index and thematic sub-catalogs give access to these Alsatian case files.

Case of Mulhouse, on November 30, 1995:

Case number:



A UFO sightings catalog using information from the old "UFOCAT" in the US says that on November 30, 1995, at 07:00 a.m. in Mulhouse, Alsace, France, "a ball was observed" at night.

Second, the Spanish ufologist Juan-Vicente Ballester-Olmos listed the case in his catalog of UFO photographs, UFOCAT.

It apparently came from the French ufology magazine "Phénoména."

This ufologist lists that on 30/11/1995, there was a UFO photograph case in "Mulhouse, Haute Rhin (France)" according to "Phénomèna, 32 (Larry Hatch database)."


Three times alas, I have no sighting report, no photograph, no primary source.


Totally insufficient information.
