A "round object" in Saint-André-les-Alpes

SAINT-ANDRE-LES-ALPES (C.P.). -- Yesterday evening, many people saw for the first time in the sky dominating the Chalvet mountain, a round object.

With the observation glasses, a disc showing green, yellow and red reflections, seemed to make rotations on itself. This phenomenon lasted 45 minutes approximately.

Rest of the article about other sightings available here.

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 14 October 1954 19:00 in St Andre-Les-Alpes, France, "An unidentified object was sighted, but with appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation. One object was observed for 45 minutes."

The source is indicated as Vallee, Jacques, Computerized Catalog (N = 3073).
