A red ball in the finisterian sky

BREST. -- Several inhabitants of the borough of Lanarvily had their attention drawn, last night, by a gleam caused by a red ball; which moved in the sky. A few days ago, other inhabitants of Lanarvily had seen in the sky an identical red ball, which trailed behind itself a luminous tail.
