She immediately went outside into the courtyard and was amazed to see in the sky, in the direction of Nortkerque, at a very low height, a ball of fire of multiple colors.

She was frightened, went home, and through the window, saw that the ball remained motionless, and a few moments later, she saw it clearly heading towards Calais.
