August 3, 1954, Gérardmer, Vosges:

Reference number for this case: 3-Aug-54-Gerardmer. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.



F. Diolez of the CNEGU built up in November 1984 a catalogue of cases from the Vosges, with the help of François Lagarde.

The catalogue indicates that according to personal notes of Mr. J.D. who is the husband of the witness Carmen D., notes "transmitted to the Circle", there was an observation on Tuesday, August 3, 1954, at 05:30 p.m. local time in Gerardmer - Dosseaux, described completely in these notes as this:

The witness saw "just above the DOSSEAUX at very high altitude" a luminous point similar to a star, motionless.

The point disappeared in a few minutes, by the time that she got inside and outside.

The sky was clear, not very cloudy, "was it VENUS, VEGA or a saucer at very high altitude?"

The author of the catalogue notes that a counter-investigation carried out by Claude Fleurance the 09/24/1983 did not make it possible to obtain from Carmen D. other details then, and that like her husband, she is interested in the ufology.
