Reports:

[Ref. js1:] JEAN SIDER:

Ufologist and author Jean Sider learned by an article from the newspaper La République, of Besancon, in the edition of November 4, 1954, that in the night from the 28th to the 29th of October 29, 1954, in Châtel-Blanc, close to Pontarlier in the department of the Doubs, Miss Marie Thérèse Bourgeois was busy inspecting her cattle shed, when, as she went outside she saw an odd gleam in the sky.

After taking a few steps outside, she clearly noticed a very enlightened strange object which prepared to land. The apparatus evolved at a hundred of meters of the village, and descended in zigzags to come to land at less than 50 meters of the cheese dairy.

After a few seconds all the lights were off. Miss Bourgeois did not think of calling her neighbors, nor to await the takeoff of the mysterious machine.

[Ref. dj1:] DONALD JOHNSON:

Encounters With Aliens On This Day

September 28

[...]

1954 - At the same time in Chatel-Blanc, Doubs, France a group of nocturnal lights zigzagged through the sky and may have landed, but the witness fled the scene. (Source: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case 4090, citing Jean Sider, Dossier 1954 et l'Imposture Rationaliste, p. 123).

[Ref. lc1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in the Doubs in Châtelblanc on September 28, 1954, at an unknown hour, "During the night from September 28 to 29, the witness leaves to go visit his cattle shed when she sees a gleam in the sky. She distinguishes a very enlightened object then seeming to prepare to land. It moved at a hundred meters of the village, going down in zigzag and landed at less than 50 m of the cheese dairy. At the end of a few seconds all the lights died out. The witness did not seek to knuw more and went home."

The source is noted: "Lumières dans la Nuit".

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 28 October 1954 at 22:00 in Chatel-Blanc, France, "Group of nocturnal lights zig-zag. Possibly land. Witness flees."

And: "At the same time in Chatel-Blanc, France a group of nocturnal lights zigzagged through the sky and may have landed, but the witness fled the scene."

And: "Objects were observed. They zig-zagged through the air. A group of lights was observed by one witness in a town for over one minute. No sound was heard."
