UFOs in the daily Press:

UFO OR METEOR ABOVE AVIGNON, FRANCE, 1981:

This article was published in the daily newspaper Le Provençal, France, page 1, le 21 septembre 1981.

UFO last night on Avignon?

OUR AVIGNON NEWSROOM received yesterday evening after 8 p.m. multiple phone calls. At the end of the line, a voice and a question: "Did you see the huge ball in the sky a quarter of an hour ago?" Thus, according to testimonys, a large gleam of red orange color, around 07:45 p.m., suddenly lit the sky of Avignon. Some locate the observation towards the Durance, others above Villeneuve-lès-Avignon. This phenomenon lasted only a few seconds. Yesterday, at that hour, the sky was cloudy, there was no sunset, it could not be a plane. So? Of course, many think that the UFOs are back! If you witnessed this strange phenomenon, contact us today.

Note: The sparse description does not allow to exclude a meteor.
