SAUCERS HERE
...CIGARS THERE

CLERMONT-FERRAND. -- Two saucers were seen yesterday in the sky of Clermont. The first within 10 kilometers of Beaumont, at 03:45 p.m., it moved in a west to east direction.

The witnesses stated that the machine approached them and became less and less brilliant.

When it was not any more than within 150 meters they felt a "weird feeling" and were like nailed on the spot.

At this time an odor of nitro-benzene emerged. Soon the machine moved away, faintness ceased and the saucer disappeared.

The other saucer was seen above the hills of Chanturgu close to Clermont. It moved vertically and was of a brilliant white color.

A saucer was also seen in Billom by a group of 30 people. The machine moved above the city. It moved horizontally. It was visible during three or four minutes before disappearing. An intense light emerged from the apparatus.

In St-Brieux several people saw a flying saucer which took the shape of a cigar before disappearing. They were able to observe it during more than one hour.

The same phenomenon was noted in Trégueux where a cyclist returned home frightened by what he had seen.

In Thouare-sur-Vie, (the Vendée) witnesses saw in the sky ten luminous objects having a lengthened shape and passing at a very high speed and high altitude.
