October 3, 1954, Saint-Just-en-Chaussée, Oise:

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

Summary:

Around 2017, "skeptical" ufologist Dominique Caudron, based in the Nord, cataloged sightings in the Nord region for October 3, 1954, neglected by ufologists, including many that were previously unpublished, and mostly explainable by a red moon whose appearance was altered by clouds.

One of these observations was reported in the regional newspapers Le Courrier Picard for October 6, 1954, and La Voix du Nord for October 7, 1954:

At an unspecified hour, Mr. and Mrs. Bieleka and Miss J. Boitel had observed a mysterious object all along the road through Montdidier and Moreuil. The route is 47 km long.

This would have happened on the National Road 339 then the National Road 35 going from Saint-Just-en-Chaussée in the department of Oise to Boves in the department of the Somme.

Reports:

[Ref. dc3:] DOMINIQUE CAUDRON:

Dominique Caudron drew up an inventory of observations in the Nord on October 3, 1954, containing 51 reports, including this one:

The Fabulous day of October 3, 1954

[...]

Chronology of the observations of October 3.

We give here only a summary of what was published in the press of the time, for the Nord region, regardless of what the ufologists could later say. We have numbered all these observations, the first of which have nothing to do with the setting of the moon, in order to be able to study them globally in a table. Some are already the subject of a special file.

44) Hour not specified, RN 339 then RN 35 from ST-JUST-EN-CHAUSSÉE (60) to BOVES (80)

- Mr and Mrs Biéléka and Mrs J. Boitel observed a mysterious object all along the road through Montdidier and Moreuil. The trip is 47 km long.

(Le Courrier Picard 6/10 page 3, La Voix du Nord 7/10 page 4)

[... other cases...]

All this is only a compilation of the information given by all newspapers of the time, including local editions, and of which ufologists only used a part.

We will see that the analysis of this information makes it possible to eliminate the hypothesis of a flying saucer, in favor of those of multiple observations of the moon, whose image was reddened and deformed by clouds, which also gave it a illusory apparent movement.

[Ref. dc4:] DOMINIQUE CAUDRON:

Analysis of the observations of October 3, 1954

[... other cases...]

44) Hour not specified, RN 339 then RN 35 from ST-JUST-EN-CHAUSSÉE (60) to BOVES (80)

Same apparent behavior than the moon.

Explanations:

The information is totally insufficient since there is no time, no direction of observation, no description, and so on.

However, the Moon, for example, is indeed a possible cause of a possible misinterpretation.
