A multicolored saucer
in Le Bizet sky

Was the Armentières sky crossed by one of these machines that hit the headlines.

We can suppose it, if one believes many testimonies of several people from the border hamlet of Bizet and the limit of the cities of Armentières and Houplines constituted by the rue Paul Lafargue.

Here is what the residents of Bizet told us: it was almost 8 p.m. Sunday when a woman and her daughter, who were returning home, were intrigued by the frantic race of two little girls who seemed disturbed.

They turned around and then saw in the sky, towards the west, an object at first reddish, in the shape of a crescent, which took various shades.

The girls stopped and explained that they had seen this object a few moments before and that it was "moving"... But soon the "saucer" seemed to descend and disappeared. A young Bizetian couple also observed this phenomenon.

Rue Paul Lafargue, around 7:45 p.m., a mason alerted his neighbors, indicating to them the unusual light that lit the roofs. Soon everyone noticed a cylindrical, whitish object, which turned yellow before taking the color of blood. Taking the form of an elongated disc, this object hovered for about twenty minutes above the psychiatric hospital, overturned, this time taking the form of a half-crescent moon, went out and disappeared.

Many residents also saw this "saucer" whose appearance fed the conversations of this Sunday evening.
