THE CHADRAC WEATHER STATION AND ANOTHER ONE FROM CANTAL OBSERVE A "MYSTERIOUS APPARATUS"
The weather station Albert Baldit in Chadrac (Haute-Loire) could observe yesterday evening from 05:50 p.m. to 06:35 p.m., with glasses, a luminous machine that appeared to have the shape of an olive supporting a black antenna at its top. Moreover, observers noted that the object that threw very shining reflections of aluminium had a black trace at its third and two thirds. The station believed to have identified at the beginning of its observations the planet Jupiter, the largest of our solar system. But this machine which compared to north was 100░ west changed color, with the setting sun, to become red and disappear in two minutes. Several people made the same observations from the place of Breuil while looking towards the Durande. It does indeed seem that is was the same mysterious apparatus which was observed at the same hour by the observatory of Rueyres (Cantal), by an employee of EDF in Brives-la-Gaillarde and by the inhabitants of Brioude (Haute-Loire).
SAME PHENOMENON AT 03:30 P.M.
At 03:30 P.M., a lady of which we will conceal the name but of which we warrant that she is serious, informed her husband that she noted the same phenomenon in the sky above the virgin. The observant was at this moment near la place du Greffe.
