The 1954 French flap:

November 7, 1954, Brest, Finistère:

Reference number for this case: 7-Nov-54-Brest. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

By 2016, a German ufological database, "UFO-Datenbank", lists a case in Brest on 7 November 1954, without any other information.

In November 1954, the magazine L'Astronomie published an article about a phenomenon that had taken place in Cherbourg in April 1905, a phenomenon explained as a mistake caused by Venus.

But the magazine had mistaken the place, setting the case at Brest instead of Cherbourg. Was "UFO-Datenbank" fed by misunderstood information - language barrier - changing the date of publication of the magazine to a date of observation? I have no proof of this; but I have so far had no other mention of an observation at Brest on or around November 7, 1954.

Explanations:

In November 1954, L'Astronomie magazine published on page 438 an article about a phenomenon that had taken place in Cherbourg in April 1905, a phenomenon explained as a mistake caused by Venus.

But the magazine is mistaken and puts the sighting in Brest instead of Cherbourg. Was "UFO-Datenbank" been fed by misunderstood information - language barrier - changing the date of publication of the magaine into a date of observation? I have no proof of this; but I find absolutely no other mention of an observation in Brest on 7 November 1954 or around that date or "07/11/1954" or "11/07/1954" for example.
