Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

In an article on previously unpublished cases of CE3 published in 1980 in Lumières Dans La Nuit #195, ufologist Eric Zurcher noted that ufologist Aimé Michel had told him that in 1947 by day, in La Javie, a child had seen a little being with a big head, dressed in a black jumpsuit, who was walking down a street in the village. Later, a girl who was nearby reportedly noticed the appearance of paranormal powers at home.

[Ref. ez1:] ERIC ZURCHER:

Case 009.1947 daytime. La Javie (04). X...

A child saw a little being with a big head, dressed in a black jumpsuit, walking along a street in the village. Later, a girl who was nearby reportdely noticed the appearance of paranormal powers at home.

S: Communicated by A. Michel


The authors ask what to think of what a kid from La Javie had seriously described in 1947; his view of a small being crossing a street of the village of La Javie in black overalls, with a big head that stunned him.

The authors do not give any source, and comment that the story might be related to folklore.


The author indicates that in La Javie, Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, in 1947, at an unknown day and time, an anonymous child saw a little being with a big head, wearing a black jumpsuit, crossing a street of the village.

Afterwards, a girl who was nearby reportedly noticed the appearance of paranormal powers at home.

Julien Gonzalet remarks that the information is very succinct, that it is a simple communication from Aimé Michel to Eric Zurcher, and that furthermore, there is nothing to establish a connection between the two facts.

He indicates as source "Lumières dans la Nuit, n° 195, page 26; Henri Julien et Michel Figuet, OVNI en Provence, page 217."

Points to consider:

More questions than answers here...

La Javie reached ufological fame with the Ummo hoax. So-called human-looking aliens from planet Ummo toldd in a letter to a Spanish crackpot occultist that in 1950, they landed there on Earth for the first time.
