[Ref. am1:] AIME MICHEL:

Aimé Michel reports that on September 27, 1954, at about 09:40 P.M., Mr. Hénard, an employee of the mail services was in front of his residence in the district of le Plan in the city of Valence, when he saw eight to ten luminous objects moving with complicated manoeuvers at a high altitude in the sky while going into the distance.

M. Hénard alerted his family and they all saw the things evolving at a high pace in the sky and getting lost from sight in the North-East.


The two authors indicate that in Valence in the Drôme, on September 27, 1954, eight or ten objects moved in the sky.


The Belgian ufologist indicates that in 1954, on September 27, in France, in Valence (the Drôme), "23 hours: 8 or 10 luminous objects move in the sky."

The source is noted comme "M. FIGUET/ J.L. RUCHON: 'Ovni, le premier dossier complet..' - éd. Alain Lefeuvre 1979, p. 92".
