LA ROCHELLE

Mysterious whistling sound

THE MYSTERIOUS PHENOMENA follow one another in Charente-Maritime. But they change their nature. That which was given to this Rochelais, residing rue de Jericho, was exclusively made of sound.

It started at 3:30 a.m. in the night from Tuesday to Wednesday. As he has become accustomed for many years, the person in question had left the restorative bed to settle at his desk. It was then that his attention was attracted by a weird hiss. "In all respects similar to the one that, in science-fiction movies, accompanies the displacement of flying saucers!"

Continuous, the noise proved impossible to locate. "I felt that something was moving above the city".

Our man went out on the balcony of the apartment and began to scan the sky. In vain. The hissing, however, continued in varying intensity. This lasted ten minutes, before resuming at 3:50 a.m., for a few minutes then at 4 a.m., for a very short time this time.

While declaring himself somewhat incredulous about the UFOs, the witness to these whistlings sounds agreed that they were quite oppressive. In any case, he iscurious to know whether other people perceived them... [Yes]
