The article below was published in the daily newspaper La Voix du Nord, local issue of Avesnes, France, page 5, on October 20, 1954.

See the case file.



Monday evening, many people of Ferrière-la-Grande witnessed the passage in the sky of a curious "ball of fire" that some claim to be a flying saucer.

Indeed, around 8:30 p.m., Mr. Maxime Liénard, guard apparitor of the town hall, went to the center of the village, with Mssrs. Decrucq father and son. They saw a luminous ball pass, at high speed, in the sky. At the same time, other people in a place called "La Digue" also saw this phenomenon. This is Mr. R. Maufroy who was accompanied by his brother-in-law and sisters-in-law: Pierre Sauvage, Gisèle and Solange Sauvage.

Contrary to rumors circulating, none of these witnesses saw this "ball" land.
