October 7, 1954, Saint-Savinien, Charente-Maritime:

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


Ufologist Aimé Michel reported in his 1958 book that on October 7, 1954, at 7:45 p.m. in Saint-Savinien in the Charente-Maritime, an orange luminous disc was seen flying at low altitude, stopping and heading off again to the West.

The "skeptical" ufologists Gérard Barthel and Jacques Brucker note the time as "7:15 p.m." and merely indicate that when they wanted to investigate they learned that the witness was dead.


[Ref. am1:] AIME MICHEL:

Aimé Michel reports that on October 7, 1954 at 07:45 P.M., in Saint-Davinien [sic] in the Charente-Maritime, a luminous disc of orange color was seen flying at low altitude, stopping and starting out again, in the direction of the west.


The two authors note this case of October 7, 1954:

"Saint Savinien - 17 - 07:15 p.m.: investigation. Deceased witness."
