October 1954, Bizeneuilles, Allier:

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

Summary:

The author of a catalog of regional observations published in the ufology magazine INFO-OVNI in a special issue, undated, the 1970s, spoke of a case coming from a personal investigation concluding it was an "unclassifiable phenomenon"; which took place in October 1954 at 5 p.m. in Bizeneuilles, at the place called "Les Brandes", the witness being a Mr. Alajouanine.

During a storm, he saw under the clouds a mass of light seeming made of a skein of multicolored luminous threads. The very tapered front was very colorful and the filaments lost their colors backwards, until becoming progressively silvery. The colors moved relative to each other but did not mix.

The witness had the impression that at the back, the threads were fading into smoke.

The phenomenon, estimated to have been at 200 or 300 meters of altitude, had crossed the sky rapidly along a straight and regular trajectory oriented West to East, without any sound heard from it.

The very tapered front was very colorful and the filaments lost their colors backwards, until becoming progressively silvery. The colors moved with each other but did not mix. The phenomenon at 2 or 300 m altitude quickly crossed the sky along a rectilinear and regular traject. oriented W. E. No sound was heard, the witness had the impression that the back filaments were diluted in smoke. (Pers. Inv.) (Unclassifiable Phenomenon)

This is not an "unclassifiable phenomenon", but a phenomenon with a likely explanation: a meteor.
