Reports:

[Ref. js1:] JEAN SIDER:

French ufologist and author Jean Sider learned in an article from the newspaper Le Bien Public, of Dijon, in page 10 for October 7, 1954, that there was an observation on October 4, 1954 at 07:30 p.m. close to Châlon-sur-Saône, Demigny, in the Saône-et-Loire department.

Jean Sider summarizes the article of this newspaper: Mr. Beaufort, director of the Commercial Counter of Châlon-sur-Saone, arrived by car at the edge of the wood of Lessart-le-National, when it suddenly saw in the gleam of his headlights, the silver plated fuselage "of one of these "cigars" which sees for some times" posed on the slope.

The machine immediately took off vertically, accompanied by flames of the welder type. Truck-drivers of Morey-Saint-Denis who followed Mr. Beaufort also saw the apparatus. The next day, Mr. Beaufort noticed while passing by again at the same place that there were deep traces on the slope of the same verge.

On this Day

October 4

[...]

1954 - On a road in Lessard-le-National, France at 7:20 p.m., a silver cigar-shaped object stopped in a vertical position when illuminated by car headlights. Landing traces found nearby. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, issue no. 319).

[Ref. lc1:] LUC CHASTAN:

The author of the database of data has a record indicating that the ufology magazine Lumières Dans La Nuit noted that on October 4, 1954 at 07:15 p.m. in Lessard le National in the Saone-et-Loire department, a person is in a car between Châlon-sur-Saone and Demigny, when, at the edge of the wood of Lessard, he sees in the gleam of the headlights the fuselage of a silver object in the shape of cigar posed on a slope.

The object took off at once vertically, accompanied by flames comparable with those produced by a welding lamp.

Two truck-drivers who followed the principal witness made the same observation.

The following day, passing at the same place, the first witness has noted the presence of deep traces on the slope.
