Did a "saucer" land at the Grand-Tertre?

We heard a lot of stories about flying saucers, so we do not know what to think about it... So let's content ourselves to reporting the claims of Mr. Mercier of Bouzais "who saw one of them."

M. Mercier, in fact, reportedly witnessed the landing at fifty yards from him, of a flying saucer from which three men came out.

Let him speak:

- I had been plucking grapes in my vineyard which is located at the Grand-Tertre. I had noticed that some grapes had been stolen and I stayed to try to surprise the thieves.

"At about 10:30 p.m., as I was preparing to leave, I saw a mass of fire fall about twenty meters from me, and then three men went down to the ground. I was paralyzed and I could not make a gesture. The mass of fire appeared to me much faster than a lightning bolt. When I opened my eyes there was nothing left and I ran away, frightened. It was a machine about ten meters in diameter.

As we proposed to M. Mercier to conduct us to the scene of this apparition, he categorically refused, saying that he was still too frightened.

Was Mr. Mercier the victim of a hallucination? It is difficult to tell. Still, he went immediately to the Café du Commerce to tell his adventure, and he was very pale...
