Reports:

[Ref. am1:] AIME MICHEL:

Aimé Michel reports that a man and his wife, who wanted to keep anonymity, testified to the following observation.

On September 15, 1954 at 3:20 in Roubaix, the man saw a red and very shiny disc under which it distinguished a white spot, towards the North-West at an altitude which he considered to be high.

He woke up his wife who had a better sight, she confirmed the details given by her husband and added that the red disc was surrounded by a green luminous halation of the most beautiful effect.

Both observed the object during thirty or forty seconds, then it started to go up vertically at a very sharp pace, accelerated quickly while becoming visually increasingly small until being perceptible only in the form of a point, and was lost from sight almost to the zenith of the very clear sky.

Aimé Michel reports that the object observed in Roubaix was similar to the one observed in Chateau-Gontier and in Angers on september 1, 1954: red color, green halation, circular shape.

[Ref. jd1:] JEAN-PIERRE D'HONDT:

This ufologist indicates that on September 15, 1954, in Roubaix, in the Nord, "3 20. There are two witnesses, husband and woman, who want to preserve anonymity. It is Mr. X... who, the first, sees towards the North-West, at an altitude appearing rather high, a red disc very shining under which one distinguishes a white spot. He wakes up his wife, who has a better eyesight. The latter confirms the first details and adds that the red disc is surrounded by a green luminous halation of a very beautiful effect. The two witnesses observe the object during thirty to forty seconds. It then starts to go up vertically at a very sharp pace, accelerates quickly, becomes increasingly small, then hardly perceptible in the form of a point, and disappears finally in the very clear sky, almost at the zenith."

The source is indicated as "book 'M.O.C.' by Aimé Michel page 66".

[Ref. lc1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in the Nord in Roubaix on September 15, 1954, at 03:20 "A man sees towards the North-West at an altitude which he considered high a red disc very shining under which he distinguished a white spot. He awoke his wife who sees better, the latter confirmed the details given by her husband and added that the red disc was surrounded by a green luminous halation of the most beautiful effect. Both observe the object during thirty or forty seconds, then it starts to go up vertically at very sharp pace, accelerates quickly while becoming visually increasingly small until being perceptible only in the form of a dot, and is lost from sight almost at the zenith of the very clear sky."

The source is indicated as "M.O.C. par Michel Aimé ** Arthaud 1958".
