November 3, 1954, Bénévent-l'Abbaye, Creuse:

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

Summary:

According to several press sources mentioned by the magazine INFO-UFO in 1976, on November 3, 1954, at 10 p.m. in Benevent-l'Abbaye in a place called "Les Coutures", Mr. and Mrs. Désert or Desert saw "a glow in the sky."

The magazine noted that this happened during the earthquake that shook the area.

Reports:

[Ref. io1:] "INFO-OVNI" MAGAZINE:

029 . . /H/03/1954 - 10:O0 p.m.- BENEVENT (Les Coutures)

Witnesses Mr. and Mrs. DESERT -

During the earthquake that shook an area located in a circle of 70 km of 0 [diameter], from Eguzon to Limoges, from Bellac to Guéret, the witnesses saw a glimmer in the sky (?)

(LA MONTAGNE NOV. 4, 5, 1954 )
(LE COURRIER - LE POPULAIRE - L'ECHO DU CENTRE - NOV. 4, 1954)
(L.D.L.N . "VUES NOUVELLES" APRIL 1976)

- This mention in this catalog does not pretend to assume the nature of this phenomenon. Some researchers trot [sic] many "UFO" observations during earthquakes.

Explanations:

INFO-OVNI [oi1] indicates as one of the sources "L.D.L.N. NOUVELLES VUES" of April 1976. But in this #154 of LDLN, I find nothing about this observation.

The observation boils down to "the witnesses saw a glimmer in the sky" at 10 p.m. - which is not really exploitable.

Gleams in the night sky, "telluric lights", caused by piezoelectricity due to the frictions of rocks are sometimes reported before earthquakes. It could be the case here, or it could be something totally unrelated to the earthquake.
