The "saucer" emptied the tractor's battery

Lorquin (from our correspondent). -- On can judge of the emotion of Mr. Marc Louis, who lives at the farm of Lhor, at Les Métairies Saint-Quirin (the Moselle), when, on Monday evening, accompanied by his brother Yvon, he found himself stopped by a an object of cylindrical form which caused his engine and light to stop. This apparatus, Mr. Louis estimated that it measured about 6 meters in diameter by 3 in height. It was not stopped and was flying slowly, almost to the ground. Its color was orange with many phosphorescent reflections.

Mr. Louis and his brother followed it with their eyes for a few seconds until it disappeared on the horizon towards the Bas-Bois.

Strongly impressed, the two men wanted to restart their vehicle, but the battery was completely discharged and they had to use the crank, which they usually never do.

Their mother, who from a distance had seen the tractor lights go out, thought of an accident, and came with a lantern to meet her children. She also noticed the phenomenon.
