Reports:

[Ref. am1:] AIME MICHEL:

Aimé Michel reports that on October 4, at two o'clock in the morning in Calanhel, the two teachers of the village, Mr. Treussard and Mr. Moal, come out in the schoolyard after having spend the sunday evening in talking together.

Looking at the sky, they see a luminous object moving in the direction of the north towards the south. Hardly have they seen this first object, that it is followed by a second, then a third, and up to seven objects finally, which follow in one moment the same trajectory.

[Ref. le1:] "L'ECHO":

In an insert following an article about UFO's, headlined "1954: the big UFO wave", the magazine indicates that "If one believes the testimonys collected by the ufologists on their websites the year 1954 was rich of "appearances"."

The magazine cites a few regional case, such as:

"Calanhel, October 4, 1954, at 02:00."

"The two teachers of the village, leave in the schoolyard after having spent the evening of Sunday to chatter. Looking at the sky, they see a luminous object moving in the direction from the north towards the south. Hardly had they seen this first object, that it is followed by a second, then a third, and up to seven objects finally; which follow in one moment the same trajectory."

[Ref. lc1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan notes in his database that in the Côtes d'Armor in Calanhel on October 4, 1954 at 02:00 hours, "the two teachers of the village go out in the schoolyard after having spent the Sunday evening chatting. Looking at the sky, they see a luminous object moving in the direction of the north towards the south. Hardly did they see this first object, that it is followed by a second one, then a third, and finally seven objects which follow in one moment the same trajectory."

Luc Chastan indicates as source: "M.O.C. by Michel Aimé ** Arthaud 1958".

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The site web indicates that on October 4, 1954 at 02:00 in Calanhel, France, there was a "Procession of objects." "Unidentified objects were sighted, but with appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation. Physiological effects were noted. Seven objects were observed by two witnesses (Treussard)."
