Saucer
gotta hold on us!

On Saturday, people in the rue Auguste-Seydoux and also some people from other neighborhoods saw in the night a luminous circle which wavered and swayed sideways but always remained at the same place.

People were very emotional, a soldier on leave on rue Auguste-Seydoux was talking about alerting the Allied air base at Epinoy!

Finally, the observers of this so-called saucer ended up recognizing that it was small balloons attached to each other which supported a colored disc all surrounded by silver and golden threads as we attach Christmas trees.

The whole lit by small electric lamps could temporarily give the illusion to uninformed people.

Finally it was certainly an advertisement and the craft would have been near the village hall on the side of rue des Remparts.

One ended up laughing at the adventure.
