COMINES

A SAUCER

People, who asked to remain anonymous, say they saw Saturday around 9:15 p.m. and for several minutes, a mysterious craft, elongated and bright red in color.

One more...

Explanations:

On October 23, 1954, at 9:15 p.m. in Comines, the Moon was not visible, having set since 4 p.m.. It was therefore not a "red moon" sunset.

Mars was in the sky, at 212°, elevation 11°, but it is quite unlikely that it would have been described as of "elongated shape."

So this is, for me, an "unidentified", but of low strangeness and with very insufficient information.
