A flying saucer in the sky of St Raphaël

St Raphaël, September 22. -- Mr. Denis Giraud, working baker, 22 years old, saw, last night, a flying saucer.

Working for Mr. Justin Rabbia, baker on street Marius Allongue, Mr. Giraud was, yesterday morning at 04:30 at the window of the bakehouse of his owner, a window giving on the Garonne and having a sight on the Esterel, when he saw, crossing the sky and moving towards the solid mass of the Esterel, an apparatus of approximately 3 m of circumference, moving very fast and leaving a trail of smoke and a red gleam.

It should be noted that this apparatus did not make any noise.

Before Mr. Giraud did not have time to realize, the saucer had disappeared across the mounts.
