A Murat resident saw, in the region of Ussel, a mysterious craft crossing the sky... a flying saucer? Meteor?

Last week the sky of Murat was the scene of a veritable cavalcade of jet planes, circulating in all directions.

Explanations:

Totally insufficient information.

The jet planes in the sky of Murat mentionned in [aup1] were NATO joint maneuvers called "Opération Etoile Filante", started at the end of Septembre 1954, and cause of some misinterpretations.
