[Ref. am1:] AIME MICHEL:

Aimé Michel indicates that in Sens, on October 28, 1954, the weather was very overcast at 08:30 p.m., when Mr. Mr. and Mrs. C, living in the street of Oublettes, saw a luminous machine going down vertically until a height estimated as a hundred meters, then followed a line parallel to the ground until the level crossing of Saint-Savinien, and disappeared, apparently on the ground. The observation lasted one minute approximately and was done in complete silence. The phenomenon moved from west to east.
