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.

Subject: 2008: In july, a huge triangle (Wolxheim in Alsace) Thu Jul 24 2008, 14:37

Hello all of you.

Well, I'm new on the website and to make me feel forced to speak of my observations, it is that frankly there are things that intrigues me.

I have already expressed to some what I have seen on July 22, this huge triangle. But I must chronologically evoke all the other points, to hget out a little what I have in me at this time

I want to say that I very rarely drink alcohol and never other tuff

First of all (with the son of my girlfriend) we went to the crope circle [sic] of Marly in June (150 km from our home) we really wanted to see one onc in our life.

In early July to the 5th or 6th

Wanting to please my girlfriend we went there on the hill 500 meters from my childhood home to spend nights under the stars, despite some cold. But we were thoroughly well covered.

First night

Despite some movements in the sky, too fast to imagine anything at all, I long fixed 3 stars in a triangle shape, I discuss about anything and everything with my girlfriend, when suddenly one of the stars starts to go, crossing without noise, the other 2 stars (a satellite?).

the 14th of July

To admire the fireworks, we get to the same place: my girlfriend, her son and I (plus other spectators, as the area is known to admire the lights) While everyone only looks at the lights, our gaze turns to a strongly sparkling star with binoculars we observe it, I do think it is a star (which really should be the case) but around are moves of small stars and quite numerous flashes.

July 18

My birthday with my darling: so we want to end the night on onour hill, we come back from dinner (I drank a glass of wine early in the lunch and nothing else on the alcohol side) my girlfriend drives when arriving at the neighboring village I notice a white ball getting down quickly and back up just as quickly making quick movements from the left to the right; (villagers continued July 14 why not ?????)

To change I propose to drive on the other hill; we park between the vines: the sky not too starry, even cloudy, it seems to me, we talk, we laugh, we kiss when my girlfriend told me is it a star, what we see there, my gaze turns to that star and there I see a strangely near and shining star, changing from white to red, but standing still (logical for a star) I stare at it 10 sec when, suddenly, just behind the star a white flashing light. we return to the homes (we started to get a little scared) when we notice on the first hill (the one of July 5/6), the same phenomenon, we park opposite it, we scrutinizes, we wonder about it, when, to destigmatize the thing, we make at it "for laughs" headlights flahes and coincidentally the star goes out.

Difficult to give details of distances and different orientation in space (I'm not too expert in the matter).

As I oftn wrote, I'll publish this evening the following events and among other the triangle of July 22 that night I will never forget

Sincerely and seriously Flo

The first thing I think is important to tell you is this: do not be afraid.

Then would it be possible to have more details on your observations?

Place of observation,
Precise date
Precise hour (as much as possible)
Direction of the observation
Duration of the observation...

This so that qualified individuals can analyze your observations and, if necessary, provide an explanation to them.

To help, there is a small reporting form HERE

I look forward for your triangles observations of July 22.

hello again dereck 3d

First of all so many phenomena in such a short time, we tell ourselves this is too much! but hey I relate what I have seen

then the village of my parents is Wolxheim in Alsace, in a lot. The estate is bordered by hills filled with vineyards 5 km from Molsheim and 20 km from Strasbourg

About 1000 residents.

one of the hill is topped by a statue in gold leaves representing the christ(place called Le Horn) central spot of my observations (except the triangle) statue lit until midnight located about 300 meters from my parents'. timing of observations, it is always in the early evening 09:45 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. to midnight to end at 1:00 a.m. then I go home.. hard to say the exact locations of the observations I will take a compass trying to remember exactly the observations(not too hard as this can never be forgotten).

Before talking about the triangle, 2 night before at 10:00 p.m., I go to the end of the lot (with my mom, "a little stroll of curiositie") 2-3 minutes pass when I see in the clouds " towards the village and Strasbourg " white lights that dance and join then part again, I told my mother thinking impressive (thinking though to laser fired from a nightclub near Strasbourg, but hey I did not see their bottom (of these lasers) and then appearing just below a small white ball flashing descading for 5 seconds and goes away at right angle and rather quickly. My mother who attends all this doubt that it was a plane and me too.

Then came July 22 at 11:00 p.m. 11:15 p.m., I returned from a not too alcoholic dinner my mother is working outside in the garden thanks to the public lights, says she does not dare go outside too much in the garden in the evening, I laugh and I look at the sky as large clouds of the day scatter, but hey I find the atmosphere a bit heavy, I gave again my attention above the neighbor's house, when I see 3 white stars in a triangle formation, having already seen this, I do not really care, until 3 seconds later it starts moving, then showing a black mass between each light, (surprisingly it is noisy extremely powerful turbines. I told my mother you see what I see, yes it's crazy !!!! (stealth aircraft or other why not) I dare to follow it to the end of the street about 50 meters, it's going to the Nordheim TV antenna, barely out of vision, I turn my head to my left there I see a very fast white ball coming from the direction of Wasselone going to Strasbourg, when I start to tell me it is best to enter the house with my mother that I joined up the street, walk again in the other direction and there behind the houses a blue ball speeds and scintillates, flying in the direction of Molsheim / Mutzig.

Last night I watched with my girlfriend and her son some weird stuff but not as weird as July 22. here I am preparing for this evening sky observation program, this time with my girlfriend only.

And if you need sharper details, please let me know I will try to localize.By the way about 22 pm when I'm at Le Horn the moon is in front of me a little bit on the right and when I saw the triangle the moon was right behind me.

Flo Very friendly

If you know people in the area who saw the same thing thank you to let me know. wolxheim it is the countryside but still there are many villages around, I dare not too much ask my neighbors.
