UFOs in the daily Press:

Meteor over Lion-d'Angers, France, 1954:

This article was published in the daily newspaper Le Courrier de l'Ouest, Angers, France, on September 2, 1954.

Here is the case file on these meteor sightings.

The Lionese have their flying saucer too!

As we reported yesterday, the residents of Angers finally had their flying saucer. But the Lionese have had theirs, too, undoubdedly the same one. On Monday, at about 08:20 p.m., Mrs Poirier, who lives near the church, was in her courtyard with a neighbour, Mr. Sanson, when they saw in the sky a brilliant light in the shape of a disc followed by a rather short tail.

This light seemed to come from a great height and to be approaching the earth rapidly. Suddenly the tail disappeared, the brightness changed, and the disc dropped vertically and disappeared.

The speed seemed to the witnesses to be much greater than that of a jet airplane, but slower than a shooting star.

No sound was heard. The phenomenon (or craft) was travelling from south to north.
