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.

Axis Phalsbourg (57) Odratzheim (67) 07/24/2014

On 07/24/2014 seen in Phalsbourg at 1 p.m. by 2 witnesses and then in Odratzheim by one witness, marked "AIRSHIP PARIS"


Thanks to the potential witnesses to make themselves known we will be able thus to map its travel

Was seen in Louvigny (57)



Please refer to the previous case file in Sarre-Union, on July 11, 2014, for more information about the Zeppelin airship of the Airship-Paris company.

SPICA did not publish any map of the Zeppelin flight as far as I know. So we have three locations, without the times that would permit to establish a chronology:


There are 100 km from Louvigny to Phalsbourg in straight line.
