DECEMBER 1954, LIERNAIS, COTE-D'OR:

Reference number for this case: Dec-54-Liernais. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

The ufology magazine "Lumières Dans La Nuit" (LDLN), reported in December 1968, that in December 1954, a Mr. Brulard - or Brûlard? - in the area of Liernais, Côte-d'Or, was walking back towards the hamlet of the Huis Renau after a death-watch, when shortly after the junction of the secondary roads D17 and D17B close to the Vieux Château, he was confronted with a very brilliant light that appeared in front of him.

The dazzling light came from a red ball which was at the locality Le Grand Pré close to the Huis Renaud between the secondary roads D15 and D17. The ball was evaluated as being at 1600 meters of him and having a diameter of 14 meters according to LDLN, indicating that the investigator, Jean Tyrode, had made an estimate of a distance of 1200 meters and a diameter of 10 meters.

Mr. Brulard felt sick, unable to feel his walk anymore and losing the notion of spatial reference. He was forced to continue his advance on all four and he passed in front of his home without being aware of that before he exceeded it of a hundred meters. When he realized this he wen back, still on all four, and finally reached home.

It is said he remained affected by a great tiredness the three following days, then fell sick, the doctor being unable to identify what he suffered from.

Reports:

[Ref. ld1:] "LUMIERES DANS LA NUIT" MAGAZINE:

The magazine indicates that in December 1954, Mr. Brulard was in the surroundings of Liernais in the départment of Côte-d'Or, returning by foot towards the hamlet of Huis Renaud after a death-watch, when shrtly after the separation between the secondary roads D17 and D17B close to the Vieux Château he was confronted to a very powerful light which appeared in front of him.

The dazzling light came from a red ball which was at the location Le Grand-Pré near Huis Renaud between the secondary roads D15 and D17. The ball was evaluated as being at 1600 meters away from the witness and having a diameter of 14 meters according to LDLN, with the indication that UFO investigator Jean Tyrode made an estimate of a distance of 1200 meters and a diameter of 10 meters.

Mr. Brulard felt a faintness, not managing to feel his walk anymore and losing the notion of space reference marks. He was obliged to continue his progression on all four and passed in front of his residence without realizing it before to have exceeded it by a hundred meters. When he realized that he had gone too far he went back still on all four and finally reached his home.

He remained affected by a great tiredness the next three days, then fell sick, the doctor not being able to identify what he suffered of.

[Ref. lc1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in the Côte d'Or, in Liernais in December 1954 at 04:00 hours, a walking witness returning from a death-watch observed a sharp light produced by a dazzling red ball. The witness then had a faintness, he did not feel any more that he was walking and lost the notion of space. It was then constrained to move on all four and it was so disturbed that he passed by his home without realizing it. The witness experienced a great tiredness during three days, his doctor was unable to diagnose what put him in this state.

The source is indicated as "Lumières dans la Nuit issue 374".

[Ref. bp1:] "LE BIEN PUBLIC":

One month later, in Liernais, a man returned walked back home, after a death-watch, when he was confronted with a very brilliant light. The man reportedly felt a faintness and, not managing to walk anymore, was forced to continue his progression on all four to reach home. As in all the cases of observation, no proof came come to support the witness' claim. Even if since then, other people returned home on all four but for other reasons.
