A "strange glow" seen
by many witnesses
in Calais and in Calaisis

Can a "strange glow" seen by very numerous people in different spots of Calais and the Calaisis, be qualified as "flying saucer"?

We will leave it to others to decide the matter, if they can.

Let's just move on to the statement of facts.

Yesterday morning, we were informed that residents of the city of Edgar Quinet and its immediate surroundings had seen around 9:00 p.m., the day before yesterday in the evening, a strange gleam in the sky.

Rue Copernic, passers-by also reported the same thing, and at the same time.

In addition, three Calais Express truckers, MM. Roger Decarmin, Gaston Caillou and Roger Croisier son were returning to Calais when, a little before Ardres, a kind of light, crossing the road at breakneck speed, made them ask themselves if they had not been the toy of a hallucination.

When they got to Ardres, they learned that there were other witnesses.

Dogs, surprised by the bright light, kept barking.

The same fact was also reported by residents of Pont-d'Ardres and by a gendarme in the region and also by a travelling motorist who slept in Ardres that night.

Finally on the Calais-Dunkirk route and there were also witnesses.

It could have been a lightning bolt called a "hot" bolt because the evening was very mild.
