February 1954, Grossoeuvre, Eure:

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



The magazine indicates that in February 1954, at 6 hours 40 in the countryside of the Eure in Grossoeuvre, Mr. J.F. Vannier, agent of the postal services, made a two minutes observation of a phenomenon in direction of the West which moved horizontally within 200 meters of him, which was in the form of three red luminous points with a yellow sphere on them, of an apparent dimension of 3° and an angular height of 5°.

This witness was going to his work by car and had noticed on his left above a field three small red lamps horizontally aligned and surmounted of a luminous yellow-white sphere which illuminated the base of the clouds.

There was no noise, the phenomenon was motionless during a few seconds, then the sphere died out. The magazine indicates that the sphere left horizontally and accelerated.

There was a cloud cover in the sky.

The magazine indicates that the investigator is Mr. G. Josse, and the information source B.P. 23.
