[Ref. lm1] "LE MERIDIONAL" NEWSPAPER:

ABOVE AUBAGNE

AUBAGNE (C.P.). -- Yesterday, at 06:15, p.m., residents of Aubagne saw a kind of cigar flying across the sky in the south-north direction. Testimonys coincide as for the color of the craft, green with white reflections.

Some ten employees of the S.N.C.F. station were witnesses of this display.

One of them told us: "I saw a kind of ball, but whose contours were rather vague. I saw it during three seconds approximately."

In addition, Mr. Alexis Artufel, fruit and vegetables wholesaler, told us: "I was at the steering wheel of my car, on the bridge of La Demande, when I saw a kind of rocket having the shape of a cigar suddenly fly fast towards the north; it was of green color with a white halation."

Rest of the article about other sightings available here.
