That Sunday, towards the bridge over the Sioule, Mr. Portillo saw above the mound of Briailles a luminous disc of 2 to 3 m in diameter moving rapidly in the direction of Vichy, Clermont. (La Montagne-Aurillac for 13/10/1954).


October 10 (La Montagne for 12/10) Saint-Pourçain-sur-Sioule 06:30 p.m..

Mr. Portillo, circulating on the bridge of the Sioule, perceived, above the mound of Briailles, a luminous disc of 2 to 3 meters in diameter, moving rapidly toward Vichy-Clermont.


The two authors indicate that in Saint-Pourçain-sur-Sioule in the department of Allier, on October 10, 1954 at 06:10 p.m., a luminous disc moved quickly towards Vichy. It is said it possibly measured 2 to 3 meters in diameter.

The authors indicate that their source is La Montagne for October 12, 1954.
