Reports:

[Ref. mf1:] MICHEL FIGUET AND JEAN-LOUIS RUCHON:

The authors indicate that in Brienne, on October 14, 1954, at about 08:00 P.M., a dark machine with an elongated egg shape and topped by a cupola was seen by an anonymous person, resting on a sort of tripod of 60 cm. It was 4 meters in diameter and 2 meters in height. A human shape of normal size was in front of the machine and it seemed that the cupola was also occupied. The witness wanted to get closer and was paralysed. The machine left in the direction of Rothière.

The authors indicate as source L'Est-Eclair for October 16, 1954.
