St-Souplet

When "the thing" visits
the Saint-Souplet residents

We have generally remained more or less skeptical to the stories of "saucers" "cigars" and other unknown craft which had been crisscrossing our skies for some time and sometimes came without any embarrassment, to land here or there, in a field, a garden, or by the roadside.

Skeptical ourselves, we were quite astonished, when one of our compatriots told us 48 hours ago about his adventure and that of the members of his family who received this unexpected visit "of the unknown thing" to this day on our territory.

The declarer, is, of course, not a bluffer, he has all his wits if we do not want to name him, we will simply say that he is notably known and esteemed, and he remains the first surprised by this unforeseen visit.

The case took place at the end of the night from Sunday to Monday, the same night, during which many people also saw these bizarre craft.

Awakened by a sharp snap... the witness adds: "I first believed in a fire in the opposite building, but it was in fact a luminous ball, which rose towards the sky. A door window was blown and the glass, reduced to hundreds of very small pieces, was scattered in the adjoining room, outside and in the place where "the thing" had departed the vegetables from the garden, were all lying in the same direction, some were uprooted, just where the craft had landed.

While the blown glass can be explained by the movement of air from the craft, no other damage was done to the property, nor any break-in and it was necessary not to question the statement thus made, which is plausible, and is consistent with other testimonies filed in our region.

The facts having been related as above and the traces and damage as well, we will not add any comments and wait for the future to provide us with an answer.
