Motorists of Nimes attend the evolutions of two mysterious craft

Nimes (C.P.).

It was approximately 21 hours, Sunday evening. On national road 113, many cars, coming from Marseilles, were returning through Arles towards Nimes. In one of them were seated Mr. Loubet, tradesman in Nimes, accompanied by several parents and friends, among whom, Miss H. F., 17 years, coed. It is her who saw the first two reddish points which advanced whirling, whereas the car was in the surroundings of Raphèle (Bouches-du-Rhône). During approximately two minutes the two machines descended slowly towards the ground. Arrived at a few meters of the plain, they went up towards the zenith, while becoming of a dazzling colour, and disappeared. A few minutes later, the same phenomenon occurred again.

"These craft, told us one of the passengers of the car, changed shape as they evolved, sometimes discs, sometimes cigars, but it is possible that it was their position which caused an optical illusion. While arriving at the top of their course, they emitted before disappearing a large luminous glare."

Several motorists stopped their vehicles at the same point than Mr. Loubet and could attend the same phenomenon.
