Reference number for this case: 15-Oct-54-Le Puy. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In their 1979 book on the French saucer flap of 1954, the two "skeptical" ufologists Gérard Barthel and Jacques Brucker briefly indicated that on October 15, 1954, what was observed in "Le Puy" was a weather balloon.



The two authors briefly indicate that on October 15, 1954, what was observed in Le Puy was a weather balloon.


The information is insufficient; but it is possible that it was the University of Padua balloon was widely reported that day.
