in the sky
of Audruicq

Sunday evening around 7, Mr. Maurice Ramette, 24, from Naves near Cambrai, and Mr. Léon Hequier, 28, from Sailly-en-Cambrésis, were returning by foot from Zutkerque, towards Audruicq, accompanied by their wives and two children aged 8 and 2 1/2.

They saw high up in the sky and towards their right an unusual object of round shape and of white or pink color, smaller than the moon, but much larger than a star, and which seemed to be moving towards them. They remained petrified; the object went out. They resumed their journey and saw it again, re-ignited and moving away from them to their left, faster than a jet plane.

Mr. Ramette, who reports the event, is a beet tarer at the Audruicq station. He seems to be sincere. His 2 1/2 years old son is still terrified of the apparition. His wife denies having been afraid, but admits having returned quickly to her accommodation and no longer dared to go out to go to the Cinema.

Is this curious phenomenon a saucer? Did other people see it?
