November 4, 1954, La Douce-Pierre, Loire-Atlantique:

Reference number for this case: 4-Nov-54-Douce-Pierre. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

Author and ufologist Jean Sider reported in 1995 and 1997 that on November 4, 1954 there were observations from 7:00 a.m. to 7:15 a.m. in the Nantes region of the Loire-Atlantique, which look "curiously" like the case of Le Sourn in Morbihan. This was reported in an article in the newspaper La Resistance de l'Ouest, of Nantes, on page 2 for November 5, 1954.

One of them is that at 7 o'clock in the morning, Michel Chauvin, Joseph Potoleau and Joseph Dory, farmers, were in a courtyard in the village of La Douce Pierre, when a blinding light illuminated the wall of the court wall, coming from an oval-shaped luminous craft that crossed their field of vision at a very fast pace.

The apparition had lasted about 45 seconds, and the object left behind a trail of orange sparks.

Reports:

[Ref. ld1:] JEAN SIDER - MAGAZINE UFOLOGIQUE "LUMIERES DANS LA NUIT":

The magazine indicates that on November 4, 1954, there were sightings from 7:00 to 7:15 in the morning in the region of Nantes in the Loire Atlantique, which look "curiously" like the case of Le Sourn in the Morbihan.

One of them is that at 7 o'clock in the morning, Michel Chauvin, Joseph Potoleau and Joseph Dory, farmers, were in a courtyard in the village of La Douce Pierre, when a blinding light illuminated the wall of the court, coming from an oval-shaped luminous craft that crossed their field of vision at a very fast pace.

The apparition had lasted about 45 seconds, and the object left a trail of orange sparks behind.

It was seen at the same time, at Le Redoux, near the station, by several witnesses, as well as in Machecoul by the two clerks of Mr. Jutard, market gardener. The phenomenon was moving from south to north, apparently from Challans to Sainte-Pazanne.

[Ref. js1:] JEAN SIDER:

A dazzling gleam lit the enclosing wall of the court, it came from a luminous machine of oval shape which crossed their visual field with an angle of 20 degrees approximately and at a "very fast speed."
