A UFO in the sky of Alsace

Several testimonies came to us about the presence of an "unidentified flying object" in the sky of Alsace. Real or optical illusion? The witnesses we interrogated being totally of good faith, it seems that the optical illusion can be eliminated. On the other side the more precise location of the object seems dubious, the latter could be Alsace as well as the nearby Black Forest.

"It was 08:55 p.m. precisely, Sunday evening, one of the eyewitnesses told us, when we saw the craft. To the naked eye it resembled to a very distant red fire. But I was able to stare, during 30 good seconds, at the object with binoculars. I had all the time to admire it. The color becoming more precise with the binoculars, was of a rusty red. As of the object, impressive by its size and measuring certainly several meters in diameter, it was od circular shape, flat at the top, conical at the bottom. After a half minute of observation, the object disappeared, as if it had dissolved in the sky without leaving any trail".
