A bolide crossed the sky of Avignon
Avignon, 20 October.
Today, around 01:30 p.m., an unknown body coming from the North crossed the sky of Avignon, while moving towards the South-west, leaving behind itself a long whitish trail which persisted during ten minutes.
This phenomenon was observed by a numerous crowd of residents of Avignon.
Was this a meteor, a jet airplane or a flying saucer?
