The index page for the 1954 French flap section of this website is here.

January 9, 1954, Tournus, Sa˘ne-et-Loire:

Reference number for this case: 9-Jan-54-Tournus. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


The ufologist and journalist Charles Garreau reportedly wrote that on January 9, 1954, at 07:50 a.m., in Tournus, in the Sa˘ne-et-Loire, a disc was observed moving at high speed towards the west at an estimated altitude of 2000 meters.

This was of course the meteor of January 9, 1954 at 07:48 a.m.


[Ref. lc1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in the Sa˘ne et Loire in Tournus on January 9, 1954, at 07:50 "Observation of a disc moving at high speed in direction of the west at an estimated altitude of 2000 m."

The source is indicated as "Alerte dans le ciel by Garreau Charles ** Alain Lefeuvre 1981".
