[Ref. am1:] AIME MICHEL:

According to the ufologist Aimé Michel, M. Georges Chappuis, resident of 36 rue Jouffroy, in Paris, stated about an observation on September 27, 1954 at about 10 P.M., that

"the object came from the East. It stopped a short moment above Sacré-Coeur, then went on again extremely fast in the north-north-west direction."

Aimé Michel notes that because of the address of the witness, he may have thought that the object stopped above Sacré-Coeur on the hill of Montmartre whereas the object may have really stopped above the Buttes-Chaumont hill: these are on the same sight line but hidden by the hill of Sacré-Coeur.

[Ref. lc1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates in his database that in Paris on September 27, 1954 at 22:00 hours "Several witnesses undoubtedly reported the same object" and "Street David-d'Angers around 22 hours, a witness made a small tour with his wife saw a luminous machine similar to a disc lit with neon which arrived in the sky from the East at sharp pace. The witness reports that the luminous disc arrived above Butte-Chaumont where it suddenly stopped during five or six seconds, after that it set out again in the direction of the North."

"Still at about 10 p.m., another witness, residing avenue Secrétan, sees arriving in the sky a luminous disc, which stops a few seconds on Buttes-Chaumont, then goes at a sharp pace in the direction of the North-West. Finally a last witness residing street Jouffroy observed around 22 hours, that an object arrived of the East. It stopped a short moment above the Sacred Coeur, then set out again at full speed in the north-north-west direction."

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

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on September 29, 1954, in Paris, France, there were "Sightings from various sites." And: "An unidentified object was sighted, but with appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation. One object was observed by numerous witnesses."
