Two balls of fire were seen Monday in the night...

Celestial phenomena follow one another and the reports continue to come to us. About the appearance of Tuesday November 14, there were all the reasons to think at the end of the investigation, that it was a meteorite.

But, here we have a butcher apprentice from Colmar who gave us the following story: "Monday, November 27, at 07:05 p.m., as I was going home, on board of my car, (I live on the chemin des maquisards), I saw in the sky, in the direction of Herrlisheim, two red balls that came closer one from the other, then came down, in oblique manner, to the ground.

I stopped my car and stopped the engine. I went out to listen: the two objects; almost joined together, were motionless and silent. I rushed at my parents' to show the phenomenon to them. Going out of the house, the thing had disappeared."

We asked for information at the Meyenheim air base, who specified to us that no jet plane was above the area between 7 p.m. and 7:16 p.m.. However, two "Alouette III" helicopters were coming back from Drachenbronn and were heading to Mulhouse (GALDIV 7), Monday evening. They reached the GALDIV airfiled at 7 p.m.
