A flying cigar lands
in a meadow of the Pays d'Ouche
and two Martians wander there

Since the flying saucers furrow the sky of France, no precise information on their subject was collected in the area of Bernay. Mr. Gilbert Haye,living in Les Jonquerets-de-Livet, had the chance, him, to contemplate a cigar, Tuesday evening, in a pasture which he exploits within 150 meters approximately of his home, along the road which goes from Jonquerets to Bernay.

It was 7:30 p.m. approximately. Close to his garage, Mr. Haye was picking up pears when suddenly, he saw in the pasture, a green gleam and a red gleam; the green gleam seemed to launch rays comparable to small wires; the red gleam, although intense, did not radiate. A black and oblong body joined the two lights together. The object seemed to be two meters long and to have a height of 1 meter above ground-level. Each light was round, of a diameter of 20 cm approximately. The object advanced slowly and stopped near the fence of barbed wire which separates the pasture from the court positioned in front of the house.

Mr. Haye returned inside his homea little frightened. The desire however tortured him to go to on the spot to see what was going on, but he did not have a lamp to light him and did not care much for walkin in the night, near the mysterious machine.

At approximately 11 p.m., his son-in-law, René Marais, 23, arrived on motorbike, in company of a comrade, Jean Chéradame, 23. The adventure was told to them; then Chéradame prepared to go, climbed on his motorbike and moved away. Hardly did he drive 100 meters on the road that his engine was blocked suddenly: the young man fell down. The motor bike having undergone two damages, he brought it back to the Haye house to repair it. One lit the external light to give lighting to him. The two young people saw at this time two forms high of 1.20 meters approximately and dressed in body that shone in the light. They advanced in a slow and jerked way.

René hastened to go get his rifle, but his parents had turned the light off and he did not see anything any more. Jean Chéradame took again his motorbike: it was 11 p.m. approximately. The two gleams reappeared, then rose quickly. When Chéradame passed on the road, he noticed that the oxen, in the pasture, were grouped and turned as [?] when they are intrigued by an object. Such is the account that Mr. Haye gave us, who seems in good faith.
