Summer, 1954, Le Havre, Seine-Maritime:

Reference number for this case: Summer-54-Le-Havre2. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

An article on a French news website in 2018 evokes an observation in Le Havre in the summer of 1954, saying:

Mr. L, taxi driver, was parked on the port of Le Havre at approximately 8 p.m., when he observed in the sky, first in the estuary and then on the "other side of the water", an incandescent disc which climbed into the sky, leaving a phosphorescent trail and a slight smoke. His observation lasted 10 minutes.

A little further on the harbor, sailors boarding their ship made the same observation.

No source is given.

Reports:

Mr. L's UAP, Summer 1954, Port of Le Havre, 8 p.m.:

In the summer of 1954, Mr. L, taxi driver, parked on the port of Le Havre. It is approximately 08:00 p.m. It is then that he observes in the sky, first in the estuary, then "on the other side of the water", an incandescent disk that rises in the sky leaving a phosphorescent trail and a slight smoke. His observation lasts 10 minutes.

A little further on the harbor, sailors boarding their boat make the same observation.

Perhaps this was a simple phenomenon of a "fireballe" entering the atmosphere, a small celestial body coming into combustion at the moment of its entry.

On November 26, 2011, a similar UAP (Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena) was observed in Le Havre. At 04:53 a witness observes the passage of a luminous dot with a green trail. Strong light, rectilinear trajectory, duration of a few seconds.

In a nutshell: A Meteor

By the way, here it is:

But in the case of the observation of Mr. L and the sailors Le Havre, there is a "snag."

A meteor does not take ten minutes to disintegrate in the atmosphere.

Yet no investigation will be conducted to my knowledge.

Today still this UAP (Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena) particular of the summer of 1954 remains unexplained.

Mr. L and our sailors were not the only ones to observe unusual events in the summer sky of 54 ...

[... other cases...]

Explanations:

If the observation lasted 10 minutes, a meteor is indeed excluded.

But what is not excluded is a shot of a flare. Consider the trail with the "slight smoke", the location over the waters, and the duration.
