"Flying cigar"
and other objects
in the sky of France

The mysterious craft commonly known as a "flying cigar", reported in the Puy-de-Dôme and in the sky of Rome, was seen on Saturday, September 18, at 7 p.m. very precisely, by three trustworthy residents of Lodève, in the north of the department of Hérault, while it was moving approximately 1,500 meters high. The object was heading south.

The witnesses were able to observe for almost five minutes, a tapered front, towing a brilliant globe lit with red fire and moving silently at approximately the speed of an ordinary plane.

Also, two gendarmes from Châteauroux, said they saw between 9:15 p.m. and 9:45 p.m., above the commune of Montierchaume (Indre) a luminous craft, immobilized in the sky at a height of approximately 1,500 meters, then two others of greenish color.

Finally, the country guard in Oberdorf (Moselle) said he saw Sunday around 9 p.m. an intense gleam coming from space and touching earth east of Tromborn (Moselle).
