A U.F.O. observed over Strasbourg

An unidentified flying object must have flown over Strasbourg on Sunday evening, estimates the Strasbourg section of the Cercle Français de Recherche Ufologiques (C.F.R.U.) after an in-depth investigation.

This U.F.O. was observed by several people including two specialists who are members of the C.F.R.U.

The first, Mr. Roland Liénhardt, was driving with his wife at 10:30 p.m. They then saw a yellow triangular object in the sky with a black dot in its center. Mr. Liénhardt stopped his car on the side of the road and examined the object using a pair of binoculars. After half an hour, the craft, which was at an altitude of about 2,000 meters, left very quickly in a zigzag.

The testimonies of other people living in the outskirts of Strasbourg who observed the phenomenon that evening - including that of another member of the C.F.R.U., Mr. Catalino - were also collected.

On the other hand, the Strasbourg airport radars did not pick up anything particular between 10:30 p.m. and 11:00 p.m.

The investigation determined that at this time no satellite passed over the Strasbourg region, no weather balloon or other balloon was in the air and civilian and military flights had ceased.
