Reference number for this case: 9-Oct-54-Cloyes-sur-le-Loir. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Reports:

[Ref. mc1:] "MICHEL CARROUGES":

Michel Carrouges indicates that the Legeay sighting lasted a few minutes, and that it is a case in which the witness or witnesses reported black silhouettes or human forms inside the UFO.

[Ref. fr1:] MICHEL FIGUET AND JEAN-LOUIS RUCHON:

These two authors and ufologists indicate that October 9, 1954, at 07:30 p.m., between Cloyes-sur-le-Loir and Montigny-le-Gannelon, in the department of Eure et Loir, Jack Legeay, aged 14, apprentice plumber who circulated on his bicycle on the road which leads from Cloyes-sur-Loir to Montigny-le-Gannelon, saw a "ball of fire" posed on the road, its diameter being of two meters. A black silhouette was visible in the center of the object.

Frightened and unable to move back, the witness called for help. The object "quickly disappeared in the air." The authors indicate that it should be noted that the witness could not move back, but that does not necessarily mean that he was really paralysed.

The authors indicate that the sources are Nouvelle République du Centre Ouest for October 11, 1954; and the G.E.S.A.G. bulletin "Info-OVNI", March 1974, #34, page 9.

[Ref. js1:] JEAN SIDER:

The author indicates that on October 9, 1954, at 7:30 p.m., between Cloyes-sur-le-Loir et Montigny-le-Gannelon, Eure-et-Loir, Jack Legeay, 14 years old at the time, rode a bicycle in direction of Montigny when he suddenly saw a kind of ball of fire posed on the roadway, of a dimension estimated at two meters in height approximately. A black silhouette was visible in the center of the phenomenon. Frightened, the witness, apparently paralysed, called for help. Then, the object disappeared in the air.

Jean Sider gives as source "Figuet, p.137-138."

[Ref. go1:] GODELIEVE VAN OVERMEIRE:

The Belgian ufologist indicates in her catalogue that in 1954, on October 9, in France between Cloyes/loir and Montigny/Gannelon, "Towards 19:30, Jack Legay, 14-year-old by bicycle, sees a ball of fire 2 m in diameter posed on the road. In the center of the object a silhouette is visible. Frightened and unable to move back, the witness calls for help. The object disappears quickly in the airs."

[Ref. lc1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates in his database that in the Eure et Loir in Cloyes sur le Loir on October 9, 1954, at 19:30 hours, "the young witness, who rides by bicycle on the road which leads from Cloyes-sur-le-Loir to Montigny-le-Gannelon, sees a 'ball of fire' posed on the road, its diameter being of two meters. A black silhouette is visible in the center of the object. Frightened and unable to move back the witness calls for help. The object disapears quickly in the airs.It is necessary to note that the witness could not move back, but nothing makes it possible to say that he was really paralysed."
