SUMMER 1914, BLIDA, BLIDA, ALGERIA, A FRENCH SETTLER:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

According to Albert Rosales, on "Le Forum de l'Ufologie", apparently a UFO web forum, had a story saying that in Blida, Algeria, in the Summer of 1914, at night, right before the declaration of WWI, a French settler was walking back home from the fields after turning on the irrigation valves when he watched a large luminous sphere flying over the fields and then land silently only a few meters from him.

Afraid, the witness quickly hid behind a hedge and was able to see several short figures exit the sphere. The figures wore helmets and light-colored combination suits. These spread about on the field moving very quickly appearing to collect samples from the ground.

After a few minutes, the short figures re-entered the landed sphere, which then took off and quickly disappeared from sight.

The next day other neighboring farmers reported that they had seen a luminous sphere flying over the fields the night before."

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates that in Blida, Algeria, in the Summer of 1914, at night, "Right before the declaration of war (WWI) a French settler was walking back home from the fields after turning on the irrigation valves when he watched a large luminous sphere flying over the fields and then land silently only a few meters from his Afraid, the witness quickly hid behind a hedge and was able to see several short figures exit the sphere. The figures wore helmets and light-colored combination suits. These spread about on the field moving very quickly appearing to collect samples from the ground. After a few minutes the short figures re-entered the landed sphere, which then took off and quickly disappeared from sight. The next day other neighboring farmers reported that they had seen a luminous sphere flying over the fields the night before."

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Le Forum De L'Ufologie, France".

Points to consider:

Unfortunately I found no trace of any ufology web forum called "Le Forum de l'Ufologie", and not trace of the report on the web; it probably disappeared.

The report is certainly of igh strangeness, but its credibility is null, it clearly was just a story on the Internet, and not other source tells about it.
