UFOs in the daily Press:

The 1954 French flap in the Press:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper La Bourgogne Républicaine, Dijon, France, page 5, on January 28, 1954.


Did you see the saucer?

This is the title of a program by Jimmi Guieu, investigator of an international commission of investigation of the flying saucers; which is aired every day around 4:30 p.m., on the antenna of Radio Monte-Carlo.

This is also the question we asked our readers yesterday, following the luminous phenomenon observed Tuesday morning in the sky of Dijon.

Thus, yesterday, two of them called us.

One, Mr. Gautherot, of Aiseray, saw a rather large disc, orange-red, which disappeared leaving a luminous trail.

"It was going very fast", he said, "coming from Dijon and going towards Saint-Jean-de-Losne!" Mr. Gotherot woke his wife, who had time to see the trail.

Another observation: that of Mr. Gaston Dijoux (night watchman at the barrier of Saulon train station) and his companion, Mr. Sezandase.

Around 4:50 a.m., they saw a weird purple ray piercing the clouds. The ray disappeared, giving way to a very bright light that illuminated all of Saulon.

Both were deeply struck by this somewhat fantastic spectacle!

The question remains: what object crossed the sky in our region on Tuesday morning?

In any case, it was completely covered, and the ceiling was at 1,400 meters!
