UFOs in the daily Press:

Saucers in France and in Belgium, 1954:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Le Courrier Picard, France, page 6, le 2 novembre 1954.


A flying saucer carried
the serial number "3 R-X MARS"

BRUSSELS, November 1st. - A flying saucer from Belgium landed yesterday in Limel, near Maastricht, in Limburg, last night.

It is a small unmanned saucer, about 60 centimeters in diameter, bearing a license plate "3 R-X Mars" and whose structure is of great simplicity, enough for shaming the experts.

It is made up of a wicker circle covered with tinfoil and suspended in the air by four large toy balloons. In a sort of basket, attached to the wicker circle, a Belgian-made flashlight lights up the saucer, giving this machine a disturbing appearance at night.

Flying saucers are sometimes balls...

A merchant of Yssingeaux saw, in the sky, a large ball ending in a tail producing sparks. The craft descended at a dizzying pace, the observer believed that it was a plane falling in flames. But, suddenly, the ball stopped its course, moved away and disappeared.

... sometimes crescents

Residents of Lézeux [sic] (Puy-de-Dôme), saw an orange "crescent" moving noiselessly towards northwest - southeast. The phenomenon could be observed for about half an hour.
