[Ref. qh1:] "LE QUOTIDIEN DE LA HAUTE LOIRE" NEWSPAPER:

A LUMINOUS PHENOMENON IN THE SKY OF BEAUZAC

Many people saw a luminous object of blood red color of the size of a soccer ball evolving in the sky of Beauzac (Haute-Loire), Tuesday morning [December 7, 1954]. It was approximately 06:15 and the workmen of the Ateliers Mécaniques de la Madeleine could look at it during more than fifteen minutes. In spite of his binoculars, Mr. François Louions could not say exactly what it was. As this machine were seen from the borough, the peasants of the villages could also look at it all with their ease. Thus Mr. Grangeon, of Bernaud gave the same version as the people of the borough. Peasants of the villages saw a large sphere of lamp. It is certain that all these people were not victims of an hallucination. In addition they could not have acted in concert, since they live at more than four kilometers the ones from the others.

Explanations:

Not looked for yet. Possibly astronomical.
