November 11, 1954, Aizenay, Vendée:

Reference number for this case: 11-Nov-54-Aizenay. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

The "skeptical" ufologists Gérard Barthel and Jacques Brucker indicated in their 1979 book on the "great Martian scare" of 1954 in France, that the newspaper La Vendée Libre for November 14, 1954, had reported that early in the morning in Aizenay, despite a thick fog, many inhabitants had been intrigued by "the moves of a mysterious machine which launched gleams sometimes yellow, sometimes of a bright red color."

In 2006, a local ufology website gave the likely date for this sighting as November 11, 1954.

Reports:

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

"Early the morning in Aizenay, in spite of a thick fog, many residents were puzzled by the evolutions of a mysterious machine which sometimes launched yellow gleams, sometimes sharp red gleams."

[Ref. mv1:] "LES MYSTERES DE VENDEE" WEBSITE:

The website's author found this observation in Barthel and Brucker's book and notes the following:
