Reference number for this case: 26-Jan-54-Pontailler. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


[Ref. lc1:] LUC CHASTAN:

A record indicates that in Pontailler-sur-Saone in the depatment of Côte-d'Or, on January 26, 1954, at 04:45 a.m., workmen going to their work at the powder mill of Vonges suddenly saw the road completely illuminated by an intense clearness. They distinguished the surrounding fields as in broad daylight. They then saw an object leaving large trainée luminous passing above them. The appearance is very low and lasts only a few seconds.

The source is indicated as "Alerte dans le ciel by Garreau Charles ** Alain Lefeuvre 1981".


The meteor of January 26, 1954, at 04:50.
