The 1954 French flap:

The index page for the 1954 French flap section of this website is here.

July 19, 1954, Pouilly, unknown department:

Reference number for this case: 19-July-54-Pouilly. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 19 July 1954 at 18:00 in Pouilly, France, "A daytime disc was reported."

The source is indicated as "Vallee, Jacques, Computerized Catalog (N = 3073)".

The "Pouilly" city name with no other precision does not allow a certain location information as we have:

Pouilly, (and Fuissé, Pouilly-Fuissé vine), in the Saône-et-Loire
Pouilly-le-Fort, in the Seine-et-Marne
Saint-Genis-Pouilly, in the Rhône-Alpes
Pouilly-le-Monial, in the Rhône
Pouilly-lès-Feurs, in the Loire
Pouilly-les-Nonains, in the Loire
Pouilly-sous-Charlieu, in the Loire
Pouilly-sur-Loire, in the Nièvre
Pouilly-sur-Meuse, in the Meuse
Pouilly-sur-Serre, in the Aisne
Pouilly-en-Auxois, in the Côte-d'Or
Pouilly-sur-Saône, in the Côte-d'Or
Pouilly-sur-Vingeanne, in the Côte-d'Or.

In addition, Jacques Vallée indeed mentions a sighting on "July 18 or 19" at "18 hours" in "Pouilly close to Dôle" and also by residents of Venarey, but in 1952, not in 1954. It is not described as a "daytime disc", but "a spindle, having neither wings nor protuberances".


Probably the 1952 case, not 1954.
