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.

Apparemment, le bolide a été observé depuis une large partie Est et Sud-Est du pays, et filmé depuis l’Italie également (voir les vidéos de l’article ci-dessus). Je l’ai également observé depuis Ludres (54), où il avait une superbe teinte verdâtre et était suivi d’une queue colorée en orange. Un superbe objet !

Evaluation:

Obvious description of a meteor.
