Flying saucers and flying crescents over Mulhouse [*]

MONTLUCON. -- An employee of the city services of Montlucon, Mr. Madet, while working in a garden in Marcillat (the Allier) saw at about 9 p.m., a huge white disk, which gave off a bright light, moving in the sky for nearly two minutes, to disappear at a prodigious speed without seeming to change altitude towards the mountains of Auvergne.

Soon after, Mr. Madet saw a second gear in the sky, red. This second phenomenon, which was shaped like a crescent approximately three times larger than the first quarter of the moon, disappeared at a very high speed towards the southwest.

[*] Over Montluçon, obviously.
