Reports:

[Ref. fr1:] MICHEL FIGUET AND JEAN-LOUIS RUCHON:

The two authors indicate that in Lepanges-sur-Vologne, in the department of the Vosges, on October 18, 1954 at 07:50 p.m., about fifteen people observed a "mysterious machine" slipping by quickly in the sky, stopping sometimes, and taking all kinds of colors.

The authors indicate that the source is their archive.

[Ref. cn1:] CNEGU:

Case #F/98/88541018 (01) of the CNEGU file indicates that there was an observation at La Bure, Lépanges, Monday, October 18, 1954 at 07:50 p.m. local time, whose witnesses were Miss Thérèse Grandemange and Miss Claudine Leconte.

The source indicated is an article of La Liberté de l'Est for October 21, 1954, entirely cited as:

"THE BAKER SAW AN APPARATUS BUT IS IS NOT KNOWN WHETHER IT WAS A DONUT"

"Huge was the amazement of Mrs Thérèse GRANDEMANGE and Mrs Claudine LECONTE who like each evening descended Monday from "LA BURE" where they had been picking up the milk, to see a mysterious machine in the sky. The said machine slipped by rather quickly stopped per moments and took all kinds of colors. Frightened they went in the closest houses in order to show the phenomenon to the inhabitants: thus soon about fifteen people among them Mr. Rémy MARCEL, baker, observed the machine."

"It was 07:50 p.m. and the phenomenon wandered from West to the East during approximately a quarter of an hour, entrusted Mr. MARCEL to us. I did not believe in it, he added, but there is surely something in the story."

[Ref. lc1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in the Vosges in Lepanges on Vologne on October 18, 1954 at 19:50 hours, "about fifteen people observe a 'mysterious machine' slipping by quickly in the sky, stopping sometimes, and taking all kinds of colors."
