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.
