Autumn 1954, Les Vétisons, Creuse:

Reference number for this case: Autumn-54-Les Vétisons. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Reports:

[Ref. ja1:] "JAN D'AGURE":

Jan D'Agure indicates that he was informed of sightings in the Creuse by ufologist J.G. Dohmen, and it motivated his search for the witnesses. One witness told about a man resident of Chantegrue "who had seen the Martians."

Jan d'Agure tells:

We "rushed" in Chantegrue. It was easy for us to discover Mr. Aupetit who immediately told us: "But I never saw any "Martians"..."

And in fact, this good man had never seen the extraterrestrials. However, an evening of autumn 1954, while he worked in a farm in Vétisons and he had returned to make a course in a nearby field, he made a curious observation.

It was between 07:30 P.M. and 08:00 P.M. but the night was already quite there. Suddenly, the witness saw a red sphere going down from the sky and land "while bending down" in a path between Vétisons and Chauges.

The spherical apparatus had the apparent size of a full moon, it was dark red and not very luminous. It landed while being dandled and remained on the ground during five good minutes. One of the sides of the sphere seemed flattened.

The machine then rose slowly while being dandled, as it had come, appearing to decrease its luminosity. Arrived at a certain height, it moved away horizontally in the direction of the south-south-east.

The next day, Mr. Aupetit spoke about his observation to consumers of the coffee house of Chauges. He thus learned that inhabitants of Chauges had also witnessed this landing from their village. D'Agure indicates that at the time of the counter-investigation, they did not manage to find the witnesses in Chauges.

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

The two authors indicate that in the autumn of 1954, at 08:00 p.m., at Trois-Fond, Mr. Aupetit and inhabitants of Change saw a red sphere going down from the sky and land while dandling itself in a path between les Vétisons and Change. It had the apparent size of the full moon and was dark red in color and luminous, with one on its sides flatened.

It remained posed in the path approximately 5 minutes, then it rose slowly while being dandled, as it came, it seemed to decrease in luminosity, and it left horizontally towards the South - South-East.

The authors indicate that their sources are "catalogue Creuse", on page 6, and "Lumières Dans La Nuit" #130 and #131.
