A strange craft has been observed by a scooterist of Vichy

Vichy. -- The flying saucers, always on the agenda, still come to appear in the regional chronicle as, Wednesday evening, around 9 p.m., a nonidentifiable craft was observed in the sky of the bourbonnais between Effiat and Plozut.

An insurance salesman living in the suburbs of Vichy, who wishes to remain anonymous, coming back from Clermont-Ferrand, travelled by scooter towards Vichy, when, around 9 p.m., he saw in a field within 40 meters on his left, a strange object having the shape of an egg rising gently and without noise.

The craft left behind itself a brilliant and yellowish trail with three greenish points.

According to this worthy of faith witness' statements, at the time when he approached the craft, the headlight of his scooter extinguished and the engine started to misfire before stalling short. It was only after the disappearance of the craft in the direction of the north, towards Moulins, that the insurance salesman managed to restart his engine and resume his travel.
