"Flying cigar" in Gironde, France, 1990:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Sud Ouest, France, on November 8, 1990.


Mysterious "cigar" in Gironde

Many testimonies agree: an elongated cigar-like shape was observed Tuesday evening, precisely at 9:55 p.m., between the Arcachon Basin and the Bordeaux-Bayonne motorway. The phenomenon lasted about a minute. Some initially thought to see a plane on fire attempting to make its approach to the Mérignac airport but found that the form in question did not move ahead. Observers also noted that when the yellow light had lost its intensity a strong trail had appeared at the back, as well as circles below the mysterious cigar. Only point on which the testimonies diverge: some heard the noise of an explosion, others did not.

Whatever that may be, no explanation has yet been provided by scientists and the military.
