discovered in the Yonne

Auxerre (from our part. corresp.). -- Sunday, the hunters of Villechetive spent part of their morning discussing the topic of the flying saucers because they had found one of these craft measuring about 1.20 m. in diameter. Of course it was only an artistic imitation! One of the hunters, Mr. Jacquelin, coffee-shop owner, took it home, to the delight of consumers.

This saucer, made of transparent paper instead of the portholes, covered with tin elsewhere, was mounted using a light cardboard disc. Inside, an electric lamp illuminated the object made aerial by the system usual today of about ten small balloons.

In the region, one wonders who could have been the instigator of this farce, but maybe it comes from a neighboring department?
