The 1954 French flap in the Press:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper La Voix du Nord, issue of the Artois and the Somme, France, page 6, October 6, 1954.


New apparitions
of flying saucers
in the sky of Picardy

This time several people from Boves have just seen "flying saucers", or at least a strange glow that moved slowly. In the opinion of these people, the craft seemed to fly away from the surroundings of the football field of Boves. The saucer was therefore seen by Mr. and Mrs. Dheilly and Mr. and Mrs. Quin, as well as by Mr. Laurent Laporte, seller at the Fouencamps bridge.

Soon after, we learned that other people in the village of Demuin had also noticed the craft. According to Mr. and Mme Deslandes it would be a "phosphorescent lampshade" which moved noiselessly and sought to land. When these people alerted neighbors, the craft had disappeared.
