October 23, 1954, Desvres, Pas-de-Calais:

Reference for this case: 23-Oct-54-Desvres.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In the 2000s, a US Website indicated, as based on a computer catalog of ufologist Jacques Vallée, that on October 23, 1954, at 07:30 p.m., there had been an observation in "Devres-Outreau", France, of an unidentified object "but with appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation."

By 2016, a German UFO website noted the sighting without the mention that the object would probably have a conventional explanation.


[Ref. uda1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on October 23, 1954, at 07:30 p.m. in "Devres-Outreau.", France, "An unidentified object was sighted, but with appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation. One object was observed."

The source is indicated as "Vallee, Jacques, Computerized Catalog (N = 3073)".
