Flying saucers in the sky of Montpellier?

MONTPELLIER (C.P.). -- A student of Montpellier, Mr. Bernard Mage and one of his comrades, claims to have seen in the sky, during the evening of Monday, mysterious craft flying above the city.

They walked in the center of the city when they saw two identical objects of oval form which turned slowly in the air.

The craft were silent and did not emit any light but they were lit perfectly by the moon, the sky being very clear at this place.

The phenomenon lasted approximately a quarter of an hour and was observed perfectly.

At the end of ten minutes, a third machine came to join the two first. It was of spherical form and appeared surrounded by a circle. It moved with a light movement of pitching.

After some evolutions, this third apparatus appeared to become animated of an extremely fast rotational movement. Suddenly, it took speed and moved away at the speed of a lightning, dragging the two satellites.

What are these craft? No one can say, but the two observers certify that they were by no means victim of an optical illusion.


SHRINAGAR. -- According to information that come from the Ladakh, province of the north of the Cashmere, flying saucers are said to have been seen in the no-man's land between the Chinese territory and the border of Ladakh.
