September 10, 1954, Bordeaux, Gironde:

Reference number for this case: 10-Sep-54-Bordeaux. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

In a general catalog of observations of the Gironde written by the Bordeaux section of the CFRU, published in the ufology magazine Ouranos in the fourth quarter of 1973, it is said that according to the newspaper Sud-Ouest for September 14, 16, 17, 18 and 25, 1954, the following observation took place:

On September 10, 1954, at 08:40 p.m. in Bordeaux, dozens of witnesses in and around the suburbs of Bordeaux saw a machine in the shape of a fireworks rocket, with a rounded front ending in a cone of white lights, heading northwest or north-northwest.

At a given moment, a red circular glow was detached by turning from behind, then the whole was scattered without leaving any traces.

The same phenomenon was seen at Saint-Sulpice de Pommiers near Sauveterre de Guyenne.

The duration was about 20 seconds; the catalog of the ADRUP indicates: "Meteorite not excluded."
