Case summary: A LUMINOUS SPHERE IN THE SKY OF MOGUERIEC

Yesterday in the harbour of the river Aber-Wrach the sloop "Saint Yves" of Mr. Loguériec entered, whose sailor, François Floc'h was the witness, whereas he was at the sea, of an odd phenomenon.

At about 4 o'clock in the morning, he saw above Valli, in Moguériec, a luminous sphere moving towards the west. The phenomenon lasted thirty seconds approximately, at the end of which the white ball disappeared suddenly.

The same phenomenon was observed by a sailor of another trawler, Mr. Jean Roudaut, of the sloop "Mimi", which states to have been dazzled by the blinding brightness emitted by the sphere.

The phenomenon lasted thirty seconds approximately, at the end of which the white ball disappeared suddenly. The same phenomenon was observed by a sailor on another trawler who states to be dazzled by the blinding clearness emitted by the sphere."
