A saucer in Castres

One of our faithful readers writes the following lines to us, guaranteeing on its honor, the truthfulness of the fact that he reports: last Wednesday, October 6, I was passing by Castres in the Marcel Briguiboulstreet. It was 15 minutes after midday. I was in my car and I had beside me one of my friends whom I brought back to his residence. All of a sudden, I saw, rather low in the sky, it seemed to me, a brilliant, metallic object which passed very quickly. It was so sudden that I sais nothing to my friend.

A few minutes afterwards, the latter turns to me and says, jokingly, "I believe that I saw a flying saucer!" - "what did you saw?", I told him. He described the object to me, exactly as I had seen it. I tell him: "I saw the same thing." - "Not possible, I believed I had an illusion."

I draw your attention to this fact: it was only a few minutes after that we communicated our impressions and they corresponded in all points. How was the object? I cannot compare better than to a large sphere, very brilliant, of a very metallic gray, a little as this aluminium painting which one puts on cookers' pipes. It passed very quickly, I thus cannot say more of it to you. I did not hear any noise and neither did my friend.
