Flying saucers are still being talked about

In the sky of Vernon (Eure)
several witnesses observed
their bizarre dmaneuvers

EVREUX, August 24. - Mysterious crafthave been seen by several people in the sky of Vernon (Eure) during the night from Sunday to Monday.

The son of a city merchant claims to have seen distinctly, around 1 o'clock in the morning, above the Seine, an elongated object, red in color, resembling a large cigar. According to him, this object stood motionless at a fairly low height. There was total silence.

From this curious machine, a flying saucer came out: which the witness describes with precision:

"It was shaped like an oval disc, dark red in color, surmounted by a red dome with a very bright halo surrounded by flames."

The flying saucer detached itself from the cigar, fell vertically, then seemed to want to observe a horizontal flight over the bridge. It turned, went up and disappeared suddenly. It was immediately replaced by another.

This curious carousel reportedly lasted three quarters of an hour.

These observations were confirmed by several people and in particular by a chemical engineer of the laboratory of ballistic and atomic researches for the army, who followed, at the same time, the R.N. [National Road] 182. The engineer observed the mysterious brilliant machines and judged, with the person accompanying him, that they could only be flying saucers.
