September 10, 1954, La Villeneuve-en-Chevrie, Yvelines:

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

Summary:

In his 1958 book on the 1954 French wave, ufologist Aimé Michel indicated that on September 10, 1954, at 10 p.m., in Villeneuve-en-Chevrie near Mantes-la-Jolie in the Seine-et-Oise department, Mrs. Treussard, resident at 32, rue Mazarine in Paris, observed an oval and brilliant object.

Giving Aimé Michel as the source, author Roger-Luc Mary indicated in 1980 that the observation took place a few minutes before 10 p.m., that the department is now the Yvelines, and that the witness died in April 1979.

Reports:

[Ref. am1:] AIME MICHEL:

Aimé Michel indicates that on September 10, 1954, at 10 p.m., at Villeneuve-en-Chevrie close to Mantes-la-Jolie in the department of the Seine-et-Oise, Mrs. Treussard, residing 32, Mazarine street in Paris, observed an oval and shining object.

[Ref. bb1:] GERARD BARTHEL ET JACQUES BRUCKER:

The name "Mrs. Treussard" appears in the list of witnesses that these authors thank for helping them to "discover the truth".

[Ref. fr1] MICHEL FIGUET ET JEAN-LOUIS RUCHON:

The two authors indicate that in Villeneuve-en-Chevrie, at 10:00 p.m. on September 10, 1954, there was an observation, according to Aimé Michel in "A propos des S.V.".

[Ref. ld1:] "LUMIERES DANS LA NUIT" UFOLOGY MAGAZINE:

In a critical article of Barthel and Brucker's "skeptical" book, the authors indicate that Ms. Treussard's name is cited by them in a list of witnesses whom they thank at the end of their book, but that they do not speak of her sighting report.

[Ref. lg1] LOREN GROSS:
