Reports:

[Ref. ra1] "RADAR" MAGAZINE:

Notes:

Weekly magazine "Radar", at the time of the 1954 French saucer flap, started a first contest offering a million old francs to whoever would deliver a Martian to them. The magazine then launched a similar contest to reward any authentic photograph of a flying saucer:

On February 14, 1965, the ORTF showed a television documentary about the flying saucers, during which fragments of the Radar article appeared. I do not have a copy of the entire Radar article.

The image shown in [ra1] appeared in this magazine among others, none being accepted as "authentic".

I do not have any other information, and it is not entirely certain that the image was said to have been taken in France and in 1954.

Explanations:
