BALLS OF FIRE on several departments

Lyon (A.F.P.).

Several people stated to have seen in the area of Epinac-les-Mines (the Saone-et-Loire) a kind of large luminous ball evolving slowly in an weird manner in the sky.

Motorists, puzzled, stopped on the road, and could observe this ball during several minutes before seeing it suddenly disappeared in the direction of le Creusot.

A similar phenomenon was observed in the Ain and the North of the department of the Rhone towards the pass of Echarmeaux, as well as in the Isère, close to Morestel. Some establish a link between these observations and that of the Lyons journalist announced Monday.

In the Lozère

In permission in his native village, Ancelpont, community of Saint-Symphorien (Lozere), Mr. Lucien Villedieu, gunner with the E.S.A.A. in Nimes, going outside at approximately 11 p.m., on the step of its door, saw in the sky, towards Chambon-le-Château, a " ball of fire " which moved at a rather fast pace. The mysterious machine launched flames of green, red orange color and produced a quite accentuated humming.

The vision, according to Mr. Villedieu, lasted only a few seconds, then the sky of the Lozère was in the darkness again.
