October 20, 1954, Bézouotte, Côte-d'Or:

Reference number for this case: 20-Oct-54-Bézouotte. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

In 1982, the ufology group ADRUP, in Dijon, published a catalog of all flying saucer sighting reports published in the daily newspaper Le Bien Public of Dijon.

It was learned that the newspaper had published on October 22, 1954, that on Wednesday, October 20, at 07:30 p.m., a resident of Bezouotte in the Côte-d'Or, "worthy of faith, saw, for 7 to 8 seconds, in the starry sky, a luminous orange-white disc that moved northeast - southwest, at high speed and silently. This disk which was 20 or 30 times larger than a shooting star or a "meteor" is probably the a phenomenon that flying saucers fans are seeing these days."

Reports:

WHY 1954?

The French flap of 1954 is today more than controversial.

Thus, A.D.R.U.P. wanted to make a compilation of all the documents published in a Burgundy daily newspaper:

"Le Bien Public".

The interest of this catalogue is triple:

  • A- to get back in the mood of that too famous year -
  • B- recall all the testimonies that appeared in the local press, whether they are good or bad. -
  • C- to be used as references for potential researchers of sociological or UFO character.
