Case summary: A FLYING SAUCER IN THE SKY OF KERHUON ...
A flying saucer made us the honor of flying above the community, Thursday at about 07:30 P.M.. Let's leave the word to the mother and her daughter - who wanted to remain anonimous but whose assertions cannot be questioned - witnesses impressed by the phenomenon seen in the sky of Kerhuon.

We were returning from Brest and went down of the bus at Kerjean. We went by foot in the direction of Kerhuon. The sky was black, without a star, when we saw a gleam of a beautiful orange color appearing on our left from the end of the horizon, which progressed at an extraordinary speed, horizontally, passed in front of us and disappeared behind the hills of Plougastel.

When it made its appearance, it was only a gleam, but progressively with its approach, which took two or three seconds only, this gleam took the shape of a disc without any protuberances, with very clear contours, followed by a trail in the shape of a cone of the same cone color.

[Ref. lc1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in the Finistère at Le Relecq Kerhuon on October 21, 1954, at 19:30 "A mother and her daughter tell their observation themselves: 'We returned from Brest and went down the bus at Kerjean. We moved then by foot in the direction of Kerhuon. The sky was black, without a star, when we saw appearing on our left of the end of the horizon, a gleam of a beautiful orange color which moved at an extraordinary speed, horizontal, passed in front of us and disappeared behind the hills of Plougastel. When it appeared, it was only a gleam, but progressively with its approach, which was carried out in two or three seconds only, this gleam took the shape of a disc without any relief, with very clear contours, followed of a cone-shaped trail of the same cone color.'"
