October 18, 1954, Hesdin, Pas-de-Calais:

Reference number for this case: 18-Oct-54-Hesdin. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


[Ref. am1:] AIME MICHEL:

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

[Ref. lc1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in Pas-de-Calais in Hesdin on October 18, 1954 at 20:45 hours "a policeman has its glance attracted by a flashover in the sky above the forest towards the north. He observes a lengthened form that then comes down. The higher part was sharp red, the white center and the lower part left trails of a rain of spark and was luminous. The object then took again height vertically and disappeared at a vertiginous speed leaving a trail."

The source is indicated as "Lumières dans la Nuit".
