UFO: Saturday night, too...

On several occasions last week, luminous objects of bizarre shapes were seen in the sky of southern Alsace ("L'Alsace" for Sunday).

The last of these observations dates back to Saturday, March 19:

Four people, in Rixheim, observed in the evening a pre-luminous dot above Mulhouse, at an altitude estimated between 700 and 1000 m. The radiation from this dot was two or three times the radiation from Venus. This dot was seen for the first time at 8:25 p.m., it remained stationary above Mulhouse until 9:00 p.m. then suddenly disappeared to find itself heading west, still hovering from 9:00 p.m. to 9:10 p.m., and of an orange-red color although a sometimes white, sometimes orange-red glow appeared at the same time intermittently for a total duration of 5 minutes in the sky, in the direction between Masevaux and Thann. At 9:10 p.m., these two dots disappeared from the sky.

Anyone who made such a sighting on Saturday evening can make themselves known by calling 81.00.04, extension 27-01.
