Flying saucer in the sky of Eyrargues
Eight girls, coed in a boarding school in Eyrargues (Rhone delta) claim to have seen,
Tuesday evening between 11:30 p.m. and midnight, from the window of their room, an
unidentified flying object (UFO). According to their statements, the object,
which had the shape of a half-sphere, approached down to 20 meters of the ground
before setting out again. Last week, residents of Eyrargues had already claimed
to have seen a UFO passing.
A U.F.O. in the sky of Eyragues
In the night of 1st to 2nd of February between 11:30 p.m. and midnight, in the
Beauchamp district in Eyragues [Eyrargues], eight girls aged from 14 to 16 saw
what might be a UFO. This phenomenon can be compared to a half-sphere of a diameter
from 50 to 70 cms, with a very luminous and coloured circumference. This UFO was
at approximately 20 meters of altitude above a building. Technicians of the Société
vauclusienne of Study of space phenomena of Pontert went on the location
yesterday accompanied by the gendarmes of Chateaurenard. Various samples
were taken on branches which seemed to have been hit, these samples
will be analyzed in Toulon and one will perhaps know something more
about this phenomenon then.
