UFOs in the daily Press:

Martians in France, 1954:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Paris-Presse, Paris, France, page 5, on October 5, 1954.



"The flying saucer pilots are Uranids"

Flying saucers circulate even on Sundays. Martians spend their weekend on earth. They were seen in the Somme and in the Deux-Sèvres departments.

- They're not Martians, but Uranids, reveals a German scientist, Professor Oberth, a rocket scientist.

According to him, 10% of the objects observed are indeed flying saucers and it is possible that they are maneuvered by creatures similar to humans. He proposes, to designate these unknown beings, the term "Uranids".

- The "Uranids", he says, are probably thousands of years ahead of our time.

Considering another possibility, Professor Oberth recalled that the saucers observed could be considered to be an improvement of the V-7 [sic, V-2], German rockets from the end of the war, several prototypes of which, according to the scientist, fell into the hands of the Russians in 1945.

Two young people saw "Uranids" yesterday in the Somme. Between Crécy and Ligescourt, they saw a curious machine around which lurked individuals of odd shape. They looked like a haystack, they told the gendarmes. When they got closer to the haystack, it "took off".

An employee of the Bressuire slaughter center, Mr. Angelo Girardeau, 55, living in Breuil-Chaussée (Deux-Sèvres), said he too, saw Sunday morning, on his way to work, a circular machine near which stood a being who appeared to him dressed in a sort of diving suit. The "Uranid" went towards Mr. Girardeau who, frightened, fled. Shortly thereafter, the craft departed at a very high speed.
