January 26, 1954, Til-Chatel, Côte-d'Or:

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


Sci-fi writer and pioneering ufologist in France Jimmy Guieu indicated in his late 1954 book on flying saucers, that on January 26, 1954, in the sky of the Dijon area, around 04:50 a.m., a luminous object, orange, lengthened, followed by a luminous trail had appeared.

Among the witnesses, he said, was Mr. Monnet, of Tilchatel, who was riding a bicycle and had been blinded at the passage of the object.

Guieu like others later did not relize that it was the meteor that had passed over the Côte-d'Or and the Vosges that day.
