Jimmy Guieu indicates that 24 hours after May 15, 1954, at 16:30, two residents of Saint-Mexant in the Corrèze saw a lengthened craft in the shape of a cone an of apparent length of 60 centimeters at arm's length, of a light gray metallic color, which moved at high altitude "in the direction North-West, South-West". At its base one distinguished "two lights red and green".
