October 11, 1954, Domérat, Allier:

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

Summary:

As a result of an error, the case of Bauquay in the Calvados of October 11, 1954, was "relocated" in the Allier in Domérat by a number of sources.

Reports:

[Ref. io2:] "OURANOS" UFOLOGY MAGAZINE :

10/11/1954 Domérat (daybreak).

The witness was busy milking his cows when he saw a vast, elongated and imprecise, glowing form appear at a low altitude, which swept across the sky, causing panic among the cows. While the apparatus was shaving the top of the trees, the cows fled in all directions. After this silent apparition, the cows refused to give their milk. (Aimé Michel MOC p.274.) No trace of this observation in the local press. Similarly A. Michel quotes an observation in Ebreuil on 10/09/1954 citingr Charles Garreau and of which we have found no trace or detail.)

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

October 11 (A. Michel, pers. doc.) Domerat at daybreak.

[Ref. ld2:] "LUMIERES DANS LA NUIT" UFOLOGY MAGAZINE:

October 17 (Centre Matin for 10/19) Saint-Pourçain-sur-Sioule at dawn.

Three small, luminous balls were seen before sunrise.

The witness busy milking his cows saw a large, gloomy, indistinct, elongated form appear at a low altitude, which swept across the sky, causing panic among the animals, shaving the trees. The cows refused to give the milk that day.

[Ref. io1:] "INFO-OVNI" UFOLOGY MAGAZINE:

016 10/11/1954 AU Domérat witness XXX

At dawn, a farmer busy milking his cows saw appear at low alt. an elongated, gloomy and imprecise shape that swept across the sky causing panic among the cows who later refused to give their milk (Aimé Michel M.O.C. p. 274)

[Ref. io2:] "INFO-OVNI" UFOLOGY MAGAZINE:

In an article examining the thesis of orthoteny (stating that observations are not randomly distributed but in straight lines), the magazine states:

Let's also note that for this day [11/11/1954], we found no trace in the local press relating to the two observations that Michel located in Domérat and Montluçon, city where we live. And yet, Montluçon-Domérat was a stunning hub of a star network.

Explanations:

The source Aimé Michel "M.O.C." page 174 would be the book "Mystérieux Objets Célestes" by Aimé Michel, 1958.

But it turns out that Michel reports a totally similar story, except that it is located in Bauquay in Calvados!

This case is therefore a non-event, the mystery being its "translation" to Domérat in the Allier, 375 kilometers from the original place...

The error likely came from Aimé Michel himself, the clue being the [ld1] source.
