A miss claims to have seen a flying saucer...

(Corr.) - A daily newspaper of Besanšon echoed a story that also reached us from beyond the Doubs, we also talk about it with the usual caveats. Here is what this is about:

Last Monday evening between 11:30 p.m. exactly and midnight, Miss H. Scalabrino, having trouble sleeping, went to the window, looking everywhere and nowhere. Suddenly she noticed a white ball that arose a few hundred meters away, behind a hedge. Intrigued as much as she was worried, she waited, not daring to leave her observation place to alert her family. The "thing" remained motionless for twenty minutes, without anyone coming out of it then it began moving again. It was then that Miss S. called her mother, who hastened, attended the take-off of the flying saucer (which did not have the looks of a saucer).

It was first a bright light that emerged from under the machine, illuminating a small space; a crackling sound, sparks, marked the departure, quite slow. At a certain height, the "ball" stopped and disappeared quickly. When one went to the indicated place, no trace of the craft was found there.
