ALSACAT:

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: 2012: on 07/11 - Strange light in the sky - Wittenheim (68) Wed Jul 11 2012, 00:17

Hello. I come on this forum to share with you my recent discoveries in the Alsatian sky lately. Well, honestly, I do not at all believe in UFOs but something strange is going on right now. It all began on the night of Thursday, May 10, 2012 to Friday, May 11, 2012 at around 0:30 (exact date, logbook confirms). As usual, I go to my window (facing south) to smoke a cigarette. At that moment, I saw in the sky a red light that wandered endlessly in direction (southwest / northeast) constantly over a long distance without a sound. The light does not approach, its speed is rather slow and looking at it, I sometimes seem to see little green reflections... it performs the same journey ten times to the meter, to permanently leave in the direction Northeast (Freiburg / Germany). During this observation, I called my wife who observed the same thing and did not know what to answer me when I asked her what that could be. The next day, I talk to my friends, I look in the newspapers, on google, nothing, no one speaks. My friends told me it was probably a helicopter, I do not think so, but okay the story is closed. I am attentive to the heavens the following days but nothing more.

But, since July 8, things have changed considerably. That Sunday evening, again at my window, I see the same red light (I'm sure it's the same) fixed above a small mountain. According to Google Maps, it would be around Auggen / Germany. The phenomenon lasts about fifteen minutes and then the light disappears suddenly, as if it would have been turned off! The next evening, so last night, I saw that same light, but not in the same place, it would blink and after 5 minutes I see a second red light lihjt up next to it. Nothing for 2-3 minutes, then one of the two lights takes the southwesterly direction rather slowly for 2 minutes, and suddenly, the 2 lights disappear almost instantly... Tonight was no different, for the third night in a row I saw the red light around this small mountain located in Germany and for the 3rd time in a row at a different location. I could see it for exactly 8 minutes before it disappeared ... no movement, this time the light was not blinking and was fixed olke on Sunday, July 8.

By researching on youtube, I came across a video where one sees exactly what wanders above my head: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYEep1sr68k&feature=related

I do not talk about it to my friends afraid to be considered crazy, especially as the phenomena does not last long, only my wife who shares these moments. I made no statement to the police but I hesitate to do so. Please take this matter seriou [sic], I am really worried and I hope you have an answer to this puzzle.

2012: le 11/07 à 22:40 - Lumière étrange dans le ciel - Wittenheim (68)

Firstname of pseudo : Hkf68
City: Wittenheim
Department: 68
Region or Country: Alsace
Date: 07/11/2012
Hour of the beginning of the observation: 10:40 p.m.
Duration of the observation: 2 minutes

Weather conditions: Cloudy
Numberof witnesses: 1
Type of phenomenon: Strange light in the sky
Oficially reported: No

Complete observation report:

As in the past 3 days (see my post: http://www.forum-ovni-ufologie.com/t15129-lumieres-rouges-dans-le-ciel) I could see that famous red light flying west from Germany. It was heading north and was blinking. Its speed was slow and the object was lost in the clouds. For the fourth day in a row, I see these lights in the sky without anyones speaking about it and without any information disseminated in the newspaper. Am I the only one to scan the sky of Mulhouse or is there anyone who could tell me he sees the same things as I do now? Anyway, I managed to borow a camera to film the phenomenon, only tonight the object was too far away to be filmed

Precise description: Red light
Size of the phenomenon:
Behaviour:
Tranjectory [sic]: North 60° - North 60°
Specific noise: No
Direction of the object relative to the wind: controlled displacement/independent
Presence of facilities: Nuclear plant Fessenheim
Similar photo: not specified
Table: not specified F1

I hereby certify on my honor the accuracy of the information provided and the authenticity of the documents supplied. I do not know how to identify this phenomenon thank you in advance for your answers.

Hello HkF68,

Your observations require details about the trajectoires. To do this take a Google earth picture overlooking the place where you were and add your trajectories (different colors for each). Then post the image here.

Can you clarify also if the trajectories are linear, or if they change direction, heading, altitude, interrupt and resume, etc?

What do you think makes you think of UFOs rather than a airliners?

The Basel Mulhouse Airport is not far...

If you see something tonight, you can easily control it is or is not an airplane by using the following link:

Looking forward to your answers.

Hello verveine

I don't know about you guys, but the link you give (http://www.flightradar24.com/ I follow it for some time, and as soon as a plane is in landing phase it disappears from my screen .. .

So not very reliable to compare

Otherwise for the testimony I don't know what to think...

That said vervein i appreciate your appreciations in the various post thank you

Hello HKF68

I think that for now there may be an additional information to provide like verveine already wrote about your first post.

(You should maybe not have opened a second witness report? And keep on writing after the first one? Maybe see with a member of the team to put this message inside your first post)

Otherwise the idea of a video seems obviously good! But when an observation can be renewed each day is probably a helicopter, plane, ... to schek ;-)

Hello Patrick,

And Thank you for your appreciation gnome

About the website in question actually landing aircraft no longer appear, which seems normal to me ... anyway here (Marignane) they disappear approximately 1min before landing.

So here it seems to me quite useful in this case. Besides if I remember well there is a radio beacon before Basel Mulhouse ....

PS: I can not see the video I'm on a mobile phone.

Cheers

Hello and welcome Rejoy,

To testify you must use the form... Sorry for this formalism, but mix of the stories in a post, blurs the understanding of exposed cases. For example I think Christian DURMEYER in his post replies to your post... but in fact he may be giving his opinion on the observation of HkF68... You see how possible confusion start

In addition, by completing the form you will be asked to provide sufficient detail so an analysis can be made.

Moreover it also good to introduce yourself, as a new member.
