October 5, 1954, Fouesnant, Finistère:

Reference number for this case: 5-Oct-54-Fouesnant. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.



The author notes that on October 5, 1954, around 4 hours of the morning, a schedule which curiously coincides with that of the appearance of Loctudy, a truck-driver had observed during ten minutes the evolutions of two flying saucers above Fouesnant.

The luminous objects had the shape of mushroom and were prolonged of a kind of highly illuminated tail. One of the discs remained motionless while the other evolved in the vicinity. A few moments later, the two objects moved away towards the sea after having launched a luminous line which resembled a rocket.

Is this a wrongly dated, and at the wrong time, version of the sighting in Fouesnant on October 15?
