UFOs in the daily Press:

Flying saucers in the 1954 French Press:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Le Nouveau Rhin Franšais, Colmar, France, on October 17, 1954.

Was it a flying saucer... naturally...?

Last night, at 07:30 p.m. precisely, an object of a brilliant blue-green light moved at high altitude over our city. Its race seemed to go down and went from West to East. Whatever it was, it was not an ordinary shooting star because its brightness varied from green to blue. The projectile was traveling at high altitude and high speed.

A little later, around 09:25 p.m., we were informed from Wintzenheim that a kind of luminous ball was spotted at a height of about 2000 meters, it revolved on its axis and moved at a particularly high rate of speed from East to West in the direction of Hohlandsburg. Four people who were together observed this ball.
