UFOs in the daily Press:

The 1954 French flap in the Press:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper L'Est Républicain, Nancy, France, page 2, on January 12, 1954.

The "flying saucer" was also seen on Saturday in the Spinalian sky

We reported in our issue yesterday that a flying saucer had been seen on Saturday morning, around 7:55 a.m., both in Nancy and in Lunéville and in the Doubs. But this unusual attraction was also offered to several people in Epinal. Saturday morning, in fact, as he got off the train at 7:50 a.m., along with several other people, Mr. Antoine, principal employee at the S.N.C.F., was traveling in the upper part of rue de la Gare to get to work, rue Jean-Viriot. He saw, as he reached Place Beaudoin, a kind of fireball (Mr. Antoine did not want to use the term saucer) in the shape of a cigar or rather a long fish, which is not so different as appearance: this "fish" ended with a luminous tail of a green hue, but very pale. The "saucer" followed the same direction specified by an inhabitant of the Doubs and went from the North-West to the South-East.

The saucer was visible to everyone who was there for up to three seconds, then it disappeared in a small cloud.

Mr. Antoine could not have been abused, since several people made the same observation as him at the same time.
