UFOs in the daily Press:

UFOs in the Southwest of France, July 18, 1978:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Sud Ouest, France, on July 20, 1978.


Tarasteix (Hautes-Pyrénèes)

Not one U.F.O. but four in the Bigourdan sky

ARE THESE UFOs, that three young instructors of a summer camp of Tarasteix (Hautes-Pyrenees) saw, with their eyes saw, in the night of July 18th, between 1 o'clock and 4 o'clock?

Pierre Darrieu, 17, Alain Dieumegard, 16, and Daniel Sauncuf, 16, are formal: they first saw, moving near them, a first spherical object moving from north to south; this object took, at the same time as it took altitude, an oval shape, about a dozen meters in diameter with two red and blue lights at the front, flashing and dazzling in addition.

There were four unidentified flying objects, one of which, the second to have appeared, looked like a cigar lit in the front by lights, also red and blue. The third observation that followed was about a "group of lights" on the move. The fourth U.F.O, rectangular this time, emitting a dazzling yellow light, passed five times, close to the ground.

Each of these observations lasted nearly two minutes. Which is considerable.

The National Center for Space Studies of Toulouse has collected these testimonies, described as interesting in view of their concordance and the obvious sincerity of the three monitors.

But the U.F.O., once again, left without leaving any other traces than those, indelible, that the young witnesses will keep in their memory.

Is it the same? How to know... anyway, a U.F.O. of elongated shape was seen - and even photographed - Monday by a young man in the Côte-d'Or.

Seconds later, he disappeared towards the southwest.
