iN St-Vincent-sur-Jabron (B.A).


October 3, at nightfall, Mr. Espy, who lives at Mr. Porel's, grocer in Saint-Vincent-on-Jabron (B.A.) saw in the sky "a great point shining which went down towards the ground the like a spider on its thread." Several neighbors also attended the evolutions of the luminous object which lasted ten minutes. The "spider saucer", which, according to the witnesses seemed to observe the valley, finally disappeared behind the mountain.

A craft advancing "in saw teeth" above the tower of Crest


Mr. Louis David, student in Paris, currently on holiday in Crest and Mr. Jean Blanc, place des Marroniers in Crest saw, Monday 4 of this month, around 9 p.m., a craft of round form of very white aspect above the tower of Crest.

This craft which moved towards the Trois Eecs was at approximately 1.000 meters of altitude and left behind a very brilliant luminous trail. The craft went in saw-tooth, ascending and descending at regular intervals and this at very high speed.

Mr. David presented himself at our agency of Valence to report us this fact and affirmed to us that in his opinion it was neither an atmospheric phenomenon, neither a plane, nor a stratospheric balloon.
