Reports:

[Ref. er1:] "L'EST REPUBLICAIN" NEWSPAPER:

"It will be said that I am a joker", told us George Guillemin, baker. "Wednesday evening September 29, whereas I was in Commercy to spend my Thursday of rest there, and that the crowd was going to another direction to see the Super Circus, I was with the Berthemy district at about 08:30 P.M. with my young daughter Jocelyne, aged 10. In the sky, we saw a luminous tube, about of the diameter of the Moon, during at least ten seconds, in the direction of Couzance-St-Dizier."

Since then we read in the newspapers that Mr. the Mayor of St-Dizier and a railwayman of Ancerville had also seen it at the same hour this same Wednesday. A person told us, as well as his wife, to have seen a luminous object like the Moon, but a little smaller, hovering in the direction of Bar-le-Duc.
