The brigadier and a gendarme
from Foncquevillers have seen
an orange luminous object

Chief Decréquy and gendarme Clavel, of the Foncquevillers brigade, in surveillance at Pommier, saw an orange luminous craft in the sky of the region at 400 or 55 meters in height.

They were with Mr. Louis Duez, city councilor, at 9:25 p.m. precisely, when the craft, moving at an insane speed, crossed the sky while going from the east towards the west.

This glow only lasted 3 or 4 seconds, but did not look like a saucer. It was also impossible to detail its shape, actually.
