UFOs in the daily Press:

The return of the Saint-Porchaire UFO, France, 1980:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Sud Ouest, France, on March 10, 1980.


Did a UFO break down in Saint-Porchaire?

The 10:15 p.m. UFO was still there, Friday night, above Saint-Porchaire. Quiet and yet illuminated, it first overflew the gendarmerie, then the citÚ of Champ-des-Chalets and the cemetery, which it seems to like, before moving away to Beurlay, following its usual trajectory.

Because now, this UFO, everyone (or almost) knows it in Saint-Porchaire, and Friday evening, they were many to scrutinize the sky, at the fateful hour. Curious, a little tender, and some irreducible... skeptics. But they were several to find it, in its usual place, in the sky of ink: Mrs. Courpron again, and also her neighbors: Mrs. Legall and Gomez, as well as Mr. and Mrs. Brillanceau, without counting a whole pack of children, who had refused to go to bed to try to see this machine, carrier (perhaps) of "little green men".

From 10:15 p.m. to 10:35 p.m. all were able to examine it: it was round like a ball, bearing concentric circles, greenish in the center, blue in the middle and red on the periphery. A very beautiful UFO! Who has, moreover, to materialize its existence, caused a power cut, very brief, flying over the high voltage lines. We even saw the initiation of an electric arc, at this moment! It is therefore not a collective illusion!

And yet, this strange phenomenon dissolved in the atmosphere, in the direction of the North-West, still around 10:35 p.m.. It will undoubtedly come back since already it is already the third times that one sees it: Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. But Saturday, it missed! Go find out why?

Who is this 10:15 p.m. UFO? The whole country is lost in conjectures: A saucer? Or another kind of spacecraft from elsewhere?

The gendarmes seek to elucidate this luminous dream because, for them, the case is likely to have more prosaic roots. But so far, we have not been able to detect the launching of balloons probes in the area, nor even of military gear or anything else that could resemble this faithful UFO!

The mystery remains whole!

This UFO actually first came by on Monday...
