ALSACAT is my comprehensive catalog of UFO sighting reports in Alsace, the region is the North-East of France, whether they are "explained" or "unexplained".

The ALSACAT catalog is made of case files with a case number, summary, quantitative information (date, location, number of witnesses...), classifications, all sources mentioning the case with their references, a discussion of the case in order to evaluate its causes, and a history of the changes made to the file. A general index and thematic sub-catalogs give access to these Alsatian case files.

Case of Ungersheim, in October 1954:

Case number:



In 2014, I found on the Science et Magie website a list of observations in Alsace reportedly reported in the regional press, including one said to have occurred in Ungersheim on October 24, 1954.

For the other cases the given date seems to correspond to the date of report in the press rather than to the date of the observation itself, it is likely the case for this one also; for which I do found nothing else so far.
