October 17, 1954, Saint-Pourçain-sur-Sioule, Allier:

Reference number for this case: 17-Oct-54-Saint-Pourçain-sur-Sioule. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

A catalog published in the ufology magazine Lumières Dans La Nuit in October 1973 indicates that the newspaper Centre-Matin for October 19, 1954, had reported one - or two - observations in Saint-Pourçain-sur-Sioule that occurred at the dawn of October 17, 1954:

"Three little luminous balls were seen before sunrise."

And:

"The witness busy milking his cows saw a large, gloomy, indistinct, elongated form appear at a low altitude, which swept across the sky, causing panic among the animals, shaving the trees, and the cows refused to give the milk that day."

Reports:

[Ref. ld1:] "LUMIERES DANS LA NUIT" UFOLOGY MAGAZINE:

October 17 (Centre Matin for 10/19) Saint-Pourçain-sur-Sioule at dawn.

Three small, luminous balls were seen before sunrise.

The witness busy milking his cows saw a large, gloomy, indistinct, elongated form appear at a low altitude, which swept across the sky, causing panic among the animals, shaving the trees. The cows refused to give the milk that day.

[Ref. ou1] "OURANOS" UFOLOGY MAGAZINE:

17/10/1954 Saint-Pourçain-sur-Sioule (Aube).

Three small luminous balls were observed in themorning just before sunrise. (Centre Matin for 10/19/1954).

Explanations:

The report is quite unclear and poor - was this one or two reports? Actually, the second part in [ld1] is likely the sighting in Domérat on October 11, 1954.

I have no ordinary explanation for this, but this is because the report is too sparse.
