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.

hello i am the creator of this video which is entirely reel i dint think you would be so naive to think that this is a fake i still have the original images of these photos taken in my street with an iphone in the middle of the afternoon and if you want the original images tell me so this is not birds one gotta stop saying nonsense thise tringular ufo was took in photo the evening with a cellsphone the same day they appear with three red lights, i saw a ufo tonight on haguenau unfortunately i coud not film it i wont tell you more i passed the info to christian macé you are really naive people on the internet and frankly you get on my nerves when you present the reeality of these ufos.

Having received this emailon February 25, 2016, I sent this answer on February 26, 2016:


Thank you for your email.

I would firstly like to point out that at no time did I write in my page that your pictures are fakes. I only noted something that was said by another, the sources are indicated in my page:

However, I can not change my mind without additional information.

You propose to send me the original images: I'd be delighted, since the images on the Internet are certainly a lesser quality (it's not your fault, obviously).

Another important point is to tell me exactly what you saw, for all that you saw on each occurrence. Date, time, duration, observation places - the places where you were - what you did, what you saw, what you thought, any movement that you saw, in short, everything you could indicate.

Let me specify that I will not publish your email address or name or exact address, I respect the privacy of people who share their experiences.

I have nothing against the idea that "real UFOs" would exist, as my website amply proves. But only accurate and complete information enables me to find, sometimes, one or the other explanation to observation reports.

Best regards,

Patrick Gross



"Androbate" published numerous UFO or alleged UFO videos on Dailymotion, gathred from around the world via the web.

Here the "video" is actually a collection of still images. It would habe been cleverer to provide then in their original photograph format. The publication date appears as "01/01/1970"...

The first claims that what follows is a giant triangular UFO hundred percent authentic photographed in Haguenau in Alsace on May 26, 2012, at 03:30 p.m.:

The second image one looks like a full size image with the alleged UFO in the upper right corner:

The third is obviously an enlargement of that "UFO":

The fourth image shows something else, what one comment called a UFO with "optical camouflage":

This is what appears on the first image, enlarged without pixel smoothing effect:

So this may have been a very ordinary bird.

As of the second "UFO", it has no similarity with the first one, and maybe be the reflection of a triangular lamp a bit similar to this one:

Everything looks as if a youngster had taken some pictures, probably unaware of anything abnormal in the sky - what matches the total absence of any description of the event. Then later, lokking at it on the computer, he may have "found" what he believed to be a "UFO".


Probable bird and reflection in window.
