October 16, 1954, Racecourt, Vosges:

Reference number for this case: 16-Oct-54-Racecourt. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Reports:

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

Saturday towards 9 p.m. an apparatus of red color crossed at high speed the sky of our locality moving towards the west. A farmer and his family saw the phenomenon and state that this one was different from that produced by a shooting star. The ball was larger than a soccer ball.

Is it the same apparatus which was observed in Bruyères the same 16th at the same hour?

[Ref. cn1:] CNEGU:

CNEGU catalogued their case number F/98/88541016 (02) as having occurred in Racecourt on Saturday, October 16, 1954 at approximately 09:00 p.m. local time, with as witnesses a farmer and his family, and as source the article of La Liberté de l'Est for October 20, 1954 which follows:

"Saturday towards 9 p.m. an apparatus of red color crossed at high speed the sky of our locality moving towards the west. A farmer and his family saw the phenomenon and state that this one was different from that produced by a shooting star. The ball was larger than a soccer ball."

"Is it the same apparatus which was observed in BRUYERES the same 16th at the same hour?"
