[Ref. pr1] UNKNOWN NEWSPAPER:

A mysterious machine crosses the sky of our country

Two strong detonations... a luminous sphere... A certain day of last week, around 4 p.m., a lady - worthy of faith - was busy with her work, when she suddenly saw a weird machine having the shape of a luminous sphere, which moved at a vertiginous speed, with the noise of an ordinary plane, leaving behind a strong trail of smoke, crossing the heavens from the West to the North-West.

The machine disappeared after a few minutes all of a sudden.

An aerolite probably... but at these flying saucers times, you never know.

Explanations:

Not looked for yet. Possibly meteor or plane.
