Reference number for this case: 14-Oct-54-Vaison-la-Romaine. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

According to the catalog of observations in the Vaucluse in the ufology bulletin Vaucluse Ufologie, of the GREPO ufology group, Special Issue No. 1, of 1981, the newspaper Le Dauphiné Libéré had reported an observation in Vaison-la-Romaine at 6 p.m.: five witnesses had seen "a ball of fire that seemed to burst."

Reports:

[Ref. vau1:] "VAUCLUSE UFOLOGIE" UFOLOGY BULLETIN:

Thursday, October 14. 1954

6 p.m. - Vaison la Romaine.

The day of October 14, 1954 saw an intense activity of "flying saucers" in France. It is the same for Vaucluse where we identify four cases. Of which two for the sole town of Vaison la Romaine.

The only elements that we have on the following cases are provided by the archival researches of J. Manuel Cervantes and Philippe Crespy at the Dauphiné Libéré, Avignon:

"At 6 p.m. in Vaison, five witnesses saw a ball of fire that seemed to explode."

VAISON LA ROMAINE

Reference 6

The day of October 14, 1954, saw an intense activity of flying saucers in France. It is the same for Vaucluse alone where we identify four cases. Two just for the town of Vaison la Romaine. The only elements that we have about it are given to us by our research of the archive of the Dauphiné Libéré, in Avignon:

- "At 6 p.m., at Vaison la Romaine, five witnesses saw a ball of fire that seemed to explode."

It is not that much, but quite significant.

"Reference 6" refers to "Le Dauphiné Libéré".

Explanations:

Probably the 06:13 p.m. meteor of that day.
