Reports:

[Ref. fr1:] MICHEL FIGUET AND JEAN-LOUIS RUCHON:

The two authors indicate that in Toulouse in the Haute-Garonne on September 30, 1954, at 01:30 p.m., the weather being stormy, Mrs. X, fearing a rain shower, took her linen inside. In her garden, behind hers residence, the sight extends over a small valley up to an elevation on which an old mill overhangs. In a field, on the left of a small road which goes up to the mill, she sees two brilliant objects in the shape of discs posed on the ground, at a few meters the one from the other. The field is at a hundred meters of the residence of the witnesses.

Mrs. X calls her husband who also witnesses phenomenon. They observe two small beings tall like twelve years old children and dressed of brilliant clothes as of aluminium who approach one towards the other like exchanging a conversation, and move towards their respective apparatus which they reinstate as if they melted in them.

The two objects take off and disappear fast. The sighting duration was 5 minutes.

[Ref. js1:] JEAN SIDER:

Jean Sider indicates that on September 30 or October 1, 1954, at 01:30 p.m. in Toulouse, the Haute-Garonne, the wife of an anonymous couple in the garden saw in a field nearby two brilliant disks posed on the ground.

The called husband observed the same scene.

Two small beings were seen seeming to discuss, they were then entered in their respective craft as if they were melting into the hull, and the two UFOs rose to faint quickly.

Jean Sider indicates that the source is Figuet, p. 99.

30 September. Near Toulouse, France. (1:30 a.m.)

Occupant case from HumCat.

'Two unidentified witnesses observed two brilliant disc-shaped objects suspended near the ground, several meters from one another. Two little men about the same size as a 12-year-old were seen approaching one another as if to converse; they separated, each one returning to its prospective vehicle, into which both seemed to 'melt.' The figures seemed to be dressed in aluminum outfits. No further details were noted, as the witnesses were approximately 400 meters distant. After the entities disappeared into the objects, they ascended and flew off at very high speeds." (xx.)

[Ref. lc1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in the Haute Garonne in Toulouse, on September 30, 1954, at 13:30 hours, "The weather is stormy, a woman fearing a downpour taked her laundry inside. In her garden, behind her home, the sight extends over a small valley until a level where an old mill overhangs. In a field, on the left of a small road which leads to the mill, she sees two brilliant objects in the shape of disc posed on the ground, at a few meters one of the other. (The field is at about a hundred meters of the witnesses home.) She calls her husband who also witnesses the phenomenon. They observe two small beings tall like twelve years old children and dressed of brilliant clothes like aluminium who approach one towards the other like exchanging a conversation, and move towards their respective apparatus which they reinstate as if they melted with it. The two objects rise and disappear quickly. Total duration of the observation 5 minutes."

TOULOUSE (HAUTE-GARONNE : FRANCE)

<

South of here, a woman going to fetch the washing in from the wind, saw two shiny discs on the ground in a field. She called her husband and for four or five minutes they watched these objects. She then suddenly saw two dwarfs by the objects. They appeared to be “aluminium men”, less than the height of a twelve year old child. They approached one another as if to talk, then went into one of the discs. Both discs took rapidly and disappeared.

[Ref. jg1:] JULIEN GONZALEZ:

The author indicates that there was a close encounter of the third type in the southern suburbs of Toulouse in the Haute-Garonne on 30 September or 1 October 1954 at 01:30 p.m.

The weather being stormy, a Mrs. X., fearing a downpour, was taking her linen inside. In her garden behind her home, she had a view over a valley to a height overhung by an old mill. In a field, to the left of a small road that leads to the mill, she saw two shiny disc-shaped objects lying on the ground, a few meters apart.

She called her husband who also witnessed the phenomenon. They observed two small beings of the height of a 12-year-old child, dressed of "aluminum", who approached each other as if exchanging a conversation, and went to their respective apparatus. They reintegrated it as if they were melting into it. Both objects rose and quickly disappeared.

The author points out that this observation is reported in La Dépêche for Friday, October 8, 1954, where journalists claim that the witnesses are trustworthy. The newspaper does not indicate their name or address, and no investigation has been carried out to his knowledge.
