November 3, 1954, Saint-Sylvain-Bellegarde, Creuse:

Reference number for this case: 3-nov-54-Saint-Silvain-Bellegarde. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.



The two authors indicate that in November 1954 at midnight thirty minutes, in Saint-Silvain-Bellegarde in the department of Creuse, Mr. C. Carton, looking outside his bedroom window observed a large yellowish gleam in a meadow near to his home.

He got out of bed and believed to see a lengthened shape like a "lying calf." He came then out of his home and moved towards the barrier of the meadow, but there wasn't anything to see anymore so he went back to bed.

During the same night, his son who lives within 50 meters of his place, heard static noises, but did not get out of bed.

The witness reported to the Gendarmerie.

The authors indicate as sourcesa Gendarmerie Report of 1976, articles in the newspapers "La Montagne", "Le Courrier", "L'Echo du Centre" for November 4, 1954, from "Le Courrier Français" for November 13, 1954, an investigation report by ufologist Jean Giraud of the group LDLN 03100 of Montluçon.

[Ref. lc1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in the Creuse in St Silvain Bellegarde in November 1954 at 00:30 "The witness from the window of his bedroom observes a great yellowish gleam in a meadow close to his home. He stands up and believes to see a lengthened shape like a 'lying calf'. He gets out of his home then and moves towards the barrier of the meadow, but does not see anything any more and returns to bed. During the same night hiss son who lives within 50 meters of his home hears crackling sounds, but does not stand up."

The source is noted "Ovni, Premier dossier complet... by Figuet M./ Ruchon J.L. ** Alain Lefeuvre pub. 1979".

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that in November 1954 at 00:30 in St-Silvain-Belgarde, France, "Yellow glow, elongated disc, color like 'calfskin couch.'" And: "An unidentified object was sighted, but with appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation. One yellow elliptical was observed in a residential area for two minutes."

The source is noted Hatch, Larry, *U* computer database, Author, Redwood City, 2002.


[... Other case ... ]

November 3, 1954, Saint-Silvain-Bellegarde (the Creuse)... It is midnight and a half when the sleep of Emile, farmer, is suddenly disturbed. In fact the ceaseless barkings of his dog outside wake him up. The man leaves his bed and opens the window. In the nearby meadow, a lengthened mass, of approximately two meters, floats and lights the meadown of a yellow light. The farmer goes outside in the cold night for better seeing... But the machine disappeared.

The following day, he tells it to his son who lives in a farm fifty meters further. Surprise: his night was also disturbed... by strange crackling noises, outside.
