FLYING SAUCERS ABOVE COLMAR
Colmar. -- Yesterday evening, at approximately 23 h. 30, Mr. Kurt Folt, night watchman of
a transport company, in Colmar, and his assistant, Mr. Xavier Schaffhauser, saw in the sky,
in the north of Colmar, a disc of white color which was moving at a great speed from East to West,
leaving behind red-bluish trails.
The guard and his comrade are formal in affirming that the disc, which took the direction of
Friburg, disappeared a few moments afterwards behind the Haut Koenigsbourg, and that it had
the shape of flying saucers that they had seen reproduced in a weekly magazine.
Note: the description in this report is rather adequate for a meteor.
