A UFO IN THE SKY OF MARCQ-EN-BARCEUL?
During last night between 23 H and 23. 30, several people who were on the Doumer square in Marcq-in-Barceul, in a bar-restaurant, that of Mr. Dorier, saw in the sky, above the place, a flying object hovering at low altitude, and moving at slow speed. During some twenty minutes, "the object" which was of green and red color, remained motionless then started to take altitude gradually, moving towards Armentières.
Several witnesses thus could observe the flying object during nearly 55 minutes before losing sight of it. UFO? reflections? shooting star? Nobody managed to know?... Still a enigma to be poured in the already bulky file of the mysteries of the sky!
