[Ref. am1:] AIME MICHEL:

Aimé Michel reports that two gendarmes of the brigade of this city who were on night patrol on the National Road RN 5 at a few five kilometers west of the town of Dijon, driving peacefully on Thursday, September 23, at 09:45 P.M., discovered a large glowing reddish ball rather high in the sky, which moved by jerks while dying out from time to time. They initially located the phenomenon towards the south-east above the village of Talant, and it made its whimsical evolutions at that location during ten minutes and then quickly went away to disappear high above on the opposite horizon at 09:55 p.m.


Vallée mentions this observation at the same time as the one in Jou for the same day, indicating: "Policemen in Plombieres and several independent witnesses observed the object as it flew erratically over the area for 60 min."

[Ref. lc1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates in his database that in the "Côte d'or" in Plombières lés Dijon on September 23, 1954 at 21:45 hours "Two gendarmes in round on the N5 discover rather high in the sky a large reddish ball moving by jerks while dying out from time to time. The object was towards the South East above Talant making arabesques during ten minutes before quickly disappearing on the opposite side of the horizon."

The source is indicated as "M.O.C. by Michel Aimé ** Arthaud 1958".
