Reports:

[Ref. le1:] "LA LIBERTE DE L'EST" NEWSPAPER:

IN BOUXURULLES (THE VOSGES) A FLYING SAUCER WAS SEEN

Mrs. Céline Voirin claims to have been last Saturday at 09:30 p.m. the witness of a phenomenon which melted her incredulity with the myth of the saucers.

Gone outside to study the weather, she saw - nor without great amazement - come towards her, a large luminous ball leaving behind it a luminous trail, slightly lengthened.

Mrs. Voirin's family did not believe her but she remains convinced that she had not been the subject of an hallucination and she longs to know if someone else saw the same appearance at the same time as she did.
