October 3, 1954, Angoulême, Charente:

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

Reports:

[Ref. am1:] AIME MICHEL:

Aimé Michel reports in his book for the observations of October 3, that in Angouleme, the Charente, Mr. and Mrs. Voudon saw a red circular object arriving, while it approached it turned to green and then moved away towards the South.

[Ref. jv5:] JACQUES VALLEE:

200 -000.15921 45.64800 03 10 1954 ANGOULEME F 1512 C** 220

[Ref. lc1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in the Charente in Angoulème on October 3, 1954 at an unknown hour, a couple saw a red circular object coming; which while approaching changed to green and then moved away towards the South.

Luc Chastan indicates that the source is "M.O.C. by Michel Aimé ** Arthaud 1958".

[Ref. dc1] DOMINIQUE CAUDRON:

Dominique Caudron indicates that the catalogue of 800 cases published in 1970 by Maurice Santos, is a good example of what one should not do; he indicates to extract from it the list of the cases of October 3, 1954; which he knows well as he had investigated into these cases of his area of Nord. For each case, below the text of the Santos catalogue, he states what should have been written, and the explanation after analysis, when there is one.

Santos wrote that for this case #553 of "Various Forms", on October 3, 1954, in Angouleme there was a luminous Unknown Flying Object.

Dominique Caudron says that at an unknown hour, in Angoulème, 16, two witnesses see a red circular object which changes to the green and moves away towards the south. Caudron indicates that there is no other sources than Aimé Michel, and that it was in fact a possible meteor.

He notes that the numbering of the cases by Santos seemed a good idea, but that it prevents the evolution of the catalogue, whose numbering becomes incoherent at the first update: "For example, this catalogue contains only 10 cases for the area of the Nord, whereas we know 48 of them. How to place the 38 others?"
