Reports:

[Ref. am1:] AIME MICHEL:

The author indicates that on October 18, 1954, in Douai in the north of France, a very classical fireball is seen, confirmed because it is seen at the same hour than in Béthune, Pommier, Audruicq, Hesdin, Huby-Saint-Leu.

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 18 October 1954 at 20:50 in Douai, France, "An unidentified object was sighted, but with appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation. One object was observed by two witnesses."

The sources are indicated as Poher, Claude, Etudes Statistiques Portant sur 1000 Temoignag, Author, undated; Vallee, Jacques, Computerized Catalog (N = 3073).
