Ufo in Wittenheim in the Haut-Rhin on July 8, 2013

The image here is an old view, a frozen scene, in Wittenheim. [I do not reproduced that image published by the webmaster, as it is of no interest about the sighting.]

Many Thanks to the person who just sent me his [or her] email below... :

This morning at about 5 a.m., I observed above the market of Wittenheim, a city next to Mulhouse in the Haut-Rhin, a dark grey flying object moving North-South.

No observation duration, no precise hour, no direction of observation, no angular height, no angular size, no indication whethjer it was slow or fast, no shape description, no indication of noise or lack of noise, this allows many possible explanations.

An airplane, a helicopter, a blimp, a party balloon, a bird reflecting streetlights...


Unidentified. Totally insufficient information.
