Reports:

[Ref. lp1:] "LE PROVENCAL" NEWSPAPER:

A MYSTERIOUS CRAFT BETWEEN SAINT-LAURENT-D'AIGOUZE AND AIGUEMORTE

"I HAVE SEEN A SAUCER CIRCLED OF FLAMES POSED IN A FIELD CLOSE TO THE ROAD"

states a conveyor of Nimes who attended the silent take-off of the object

[illegible] several people phoned [illegible] to inform of a new appearance.

Tuesday in the night, two phone calls taught us that a round and luminous machine had been seen off Marseille, above the Planier lighthouse. The "saucer" stopped during a few seconds at the right of the headlight and disappeared towards the North.

In the Gard

A conveyor from Nimes claims to have seen, a few days ago, whereas he was on his tour, a flying saucer stopped between the communities of St-Laurent-d'Aigouze and Aigues-Mortes.

"It was approximately 4 hours of the morning, he told us, and I was at the steering wheel of my car when my attention was drawn by the presence, at a hundred meters of the road, of a circle of small flames, similar, by their distribution and their color, with those of a gas ring. As there was a little fog, I could not distinguish more and I do not know which is the shape of the object from where these flames emanated.

"I stopped my car at once, but at this moment, I saw the flames start to turn in round, faster and faster, while lying down, and at the end of a few seconds, the circle rose and disappeared without any noise.

"At the time of its disappearance, there was nothing any more but only one very long flame which shone like a comet tail."
