Autumn 1954, Ventenat, Creuse:

Reference number for this case: Autumn-54-Ventenat. 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.

In Bette, they found Mrs. Bignet who in 1954 resided at Ventenat. One day in autumn of 1954, she was in company of another lady, a neighbor who at the time of the counter-investigation had become the owner of the bar of Ventenat. The ladies carried out a sow in the village, at aproximately 04:30 P.M.

One of the women exclaimed suddenly: "Looks at that!" A luminous sphere of the apparent size of a full moon and similar to a sphere of fire crossed the sky at a sharp pace and high altitude. Very quickly, the "fireball" disappeared in the direction of the south-east.

The investigators then went to Ventenat in order to question the second witness for confirmation. The bar owner had forgotten the event but did not deny it. She specified to them that if it interested them, there was Mr. Aupetit in Chantegrue who had seen "Martians." (The investigators found that it had not seen any Martian but had made another observation at another time than that of the two women).
