Summary:

In Jean Giraud's catalog in his special bulletin about "landings" in Auvergne, we learn that this case of October 4, 1954, in Chirat, near Prompsat, in the Puy-de-Dome, was reported in the regional newspaper La Montagne, Clermont-Ferrand edition of October 8, 1954.

Around 07:15 p.m., Guy Barthélémy, 14, saw on the crest of Chanteloze at 60 meters from him a cylindrical machine placed on the ground, silent and motionless.

He went to his house to get an electric lamp, but when he returned, the object was gone.

The next day two parallel furrows, 1 meter long and 50 cm apart, were found on the ground.
