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.

ufo on 08 16 2014 at about 11:00 which goes towards the hilton strasbourg slow motion and real speed for educated eyes filmed by werner !

Note: a comment indicated that it is a bird.



The so-called "UFO" is visible from second 8 to second 11, and it is obviously juts a bird.

The camera is perfectly motionless, I can assume that "Werner" did not see anything with his own eyes and discovered the "UFO" on the video later on, in the manner of the so-called "surprise photographs".

The "UFO" does not dly to the Hilton hotel but to the trees in the park.
