June, 1952 to 1957, 1954, Evillers, Doubs:

Reference number for this case: Jun-5257-Evillers. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

Jean Tyrode was a teacher at Evillers in the Doubs in the 1950s; he said he himself had witnessed a dozen or so UFO observations in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. He became passionate about the matter and conducted numerous field investigation in the Doubs: which he communicated to the ufology magazine Lumières Dans La Nuit.

One of the first observations he reported was described in this magazine in 1969:

One June, between 1952 and 1957, Jean Tyrode was standing with others on the front steps of the Evillers cheese dairy, around 6 p.m., in broad daylight.

On the left, appeared a dark "thing", without light, almost black, not reflecting the sun, producing no perceptible noise, a few hundred meters from the group.

The "thing" was following a north-east to southwest trajectory fifty meters above the ground and disappeared to the right, hidden by the houses.

Reports:

[Ref. fle11:] FERNAND LAGARDE AND JEAN TYRODE:

Fernand Lagarde liste des observations faites par Jean Tyrode, devenu ufologue, dans le secteur d'Evillers dans le Doubs, dont:

1° BETWEEN 1952 AND 1957.

One day in June, Mr. TYRODE, in the company of other people, was standing on the doorsteps of the EVILLERS Cheese Factory, (see map) at about 6 p.m, broad daylight.

On the left, a dark "thing" appeared, without light, almost black. Producing no noticeable noise, a few hundred meters from the group, the "thing" following a trajectory NE-SW, fifty meters above the ground. (See sketch A).

The object disappeared on the right, hidden by the houses.

Although opposite the sun, one saw no reflection.

Explanations:

Unidentified, possible plane or distant helicopter.

In "skeptical" ufologist circles, I often heard the comment that the problem with Jean Tyrode's personal observations - and his numerous investigations reports - is their suspicious high number.
