A celestial observation

A friend of our newspaper told us the following observation made on Tuesday eight days ago. While he was in Kestenholz street around 8 a.m. at dusk, he suddenly saw in the direction of the Illwald and the Ried a bright yellow object moving from north to south. From the yellow the light changed to a bright green and suddenly turned into a kind of red fireball from which sprang brief sparks. The sighting lasted about 4 seconds. What was this object moving so fast? A rocket, a missile? One of those famous "flying saucers"?...

We reported at the time of the occurrence that the phenomenon was also observed from Colmar.
