Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


The regional newspaper La Bourgogne Républicaine, of Dijon, mentioned on October 8, 1954, on page 4, that in the Nièvre department, an employee of a state administration had claimed to have observed, at the place called "Les Chaumes," a "luminous disc of large dimensions, yellow-orange in color, walking at a dizzying speed. This craft left behind a dazzling white light."




The flying saucers (continued)
do not spare the Châlon region

Chalon-sur-Saône (from our P.C.). -- As one might expect, and one is even astonished to have waited so long, Châlons and its region are adding today a chapter to the novels of saucers and other flying cigars.

It is a resident of Saint-Marcel-les-Chalon who saw, in the sky above this locality, a object "like I have never seen" (sic), surrounded by "smaller objects that looked like birds and had silvery highlights."

A resident of Mercurey is much more categorical and lavish of explanation, who saw "two flying tops lying at an altitude of approximately 300 meters, with a diameter of 5 to 6 meters, the top slightly domed, throwing purple and yellow-red gleams, and seeming to move towards Le Creusot.

Other very fleeting appearances are also reported on the Bresse, homeland of the chicken and the "noa."

... nor the Nièvre

Nevers (from our P.C.). -- A resident of Corbigny (Nièvre) declared to have seen, in broad daylight, while she was hanging laundry in her garden, a luminous cigar-shaped craft, elongated, moving at high speed. It carried two discs in its lower part. Rising vertically, this cigar went out and disappeared.

An employee of a state administration also claimed to have observed, at the place called "Les Chaumes", a luminous disc of large dimensions, yellow-orange in color, walking at breakneck speed. This craft left behind a dazzling white light.

Finally, a craftsman-carpenter saw a cylindrical-shaped craft, flying at very high altitude. It emitted orange-red glows, was heading northeast.



Obvious description of a meteor.
