A fireball in the sky

Mulhouse. -- Last Thursday, many people managed to observe in the Mulhouse region a strange luminous phenomenon that disappeared an hour later. And immediately one talk about a UFO. Indeed, this mysterious fireball was seen over Ruelisheim and Battenheim. The apparition lasted from 08:30 p.m. to 09:30 p.m. According to reliable witnesses, this ball, set high in the sky, then split into three parts, leaving behind trails of light.

These three balls later went eastwards towards the Black Forest.

It should be noted that such a phenomenon has been observed in this area several times last summer. One had seen on some days, always at the same hour, a luminous apparition that disappeared afterwards over the Vosges. But it was perhaps just a meteorite.
