Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


The regional newspaper L'Est Républicain for November 2, 1954, reported via their local correspondent, that many inhabitants of Sarreguemines observed on "Monday", therefore on November 1, 1954, around 8:10 p.m., a flying saucer moving at a very high altitude above this city.

The newspaper said Suddenly, "the saucer moved quickly, emitting a yellowish glow, southeast, toward Remelfing. It appeared to descend to the ground."

The newspaper added that many witnesses went by automobile to the place where the saucer should have landed according to their observations, but found no trace of the "craft."
