September 18, 1954, Vichy, Allier:

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

Summary:

The regional newspaper Le Provençal for September 20, 1954, reported that on the night of Saturday, September 18, 1954, many residents of Vichy observed a luminous saucer-shaped craft moving fast in the sky.

One of the witnesses, Mr. Isnardon, said that this "craft" had "disappeared almost immediately."

In 1958, the ufologist Aimé Michel gave a wrong date to the case, writing it was on October 19, 1954.
