Egg-shaped UFO seen from mountain lodge, reacts to firing of signal flare

Date: December 10, 1973
Location: Hochries Mountain, Germany

Mr. L., the proprietor of an Alpine lodge on Hochries mountain in Germany, along with the caretaker, noticed a red light on the top of the mountain. Mr. L. fired a red flare signal rocket in the direction of the unidentified object. Soon after, the object started to shine in a much brighter red color and rose-up slowly in the air. It moved in the direction of the Hochries-lodge, and the witnesses now recognized that the object was egg-shaped.

Egg-Shaped Object Over the Hochries Mountain Near the City of Rosenheim

Mr. L., the proprietor of an Alpine lodge on Hochries mountain (1569 meters) in Germany, was looking through a panoramic window at the snow-covered landscape. He was there with the caretaker of the lodge at 8:30 p.m. on December 10, 1973. At a distance of about 8 km, they could see the mountain Weitlahner Kopf (1611 m). On the top of this mountain, they noticed a red light. Curiously, both men took out their binoculars (10 x 50). They wanted to verify whether or not the light came from the cockpit of a helicopter.

At about 8:50 p.m., Mr. L. fired a red flare signal rocket in the direction of the unidentified object. His intent was to indicate to the pilot, which may have been in trouble, that he was seen by members of the mountain rescue service. Soon after, the object started to shine in a much brighter red color and rose up slowly in the air. After 4-5 minutes, it hovered about 200 meters over the top of the mountain. Suddenly, it moved in the direction of the Hochries-lodge. When it was only 2 km away, it stopped in mid-air. The witnesses now recognized that the object was egg-shaped and not a helicopter as they had expected. Its upper part resembled a transparent cockpit. Colored lights rotated around the external rim and around the lower part of the object. The "egg" had a height of about 10 meters and flew absolutely soundless. The rotating lights were comparable with a light show in a discotheque, randomly flashing on and off without a pattern. From top to bottom, the colors of the lights were red, green, blue and white.

"The lights ran counter-clockwise, from left to right, without any apparent system and not simultaneously," said Mr. L. "At first, one light appeared, then came the next one and so on. It looked as if fluorescent tubes were running around and flashing in several different positions."

After several minutes, the object flew toward Klausenberg mountain (Austria) and hovered about 30 meters over the top. It then changed its course and moved closer to a nearby Alpine lodge where it stopped for a long time. Mr. L., via his radio-transmitter, informed not only the proprietor of the Klausner-lodge, who was observing the strange object as well, but also the mountain rescue services in Bavaria, Austria and Czechoslovakia.

The object hovered motionless, only flashing its colored lights. Since nothing was happening, Mr. L fired another signal rocket in its direction, trying to get it to move again. Shortly thereafter, the object began to rise up vertically, first slowly, but then very rapid until it was out of view. (MUFON-CES Report No. 1, 1975)
