Hello, cheerio for your rather sympathetic website, I communicate to you a not very spectacular and not very recent sighting for which I do not have an explanation...
At the beginning of May 1995 Fontaine in the suburbs of Grenoble, 10:30-11:00 p.m.h, on the uplifted terrace of a house, directed south and west (to the Vercors)... Initially a rather strong noise, as a breath I would say, as for the noise there are 3 people with me from which I ask "what's that noise?", one of them answers me "surely a helicopter" and I remember to have said that it was not the noise of a helicopter, I look at this time towards the west, I rise the head above me and I see passing extremly quickly a luminous arc of circle direction western south-south... and there is more noise [or no no noise anymore]. I specify that there were no clouds and that in Fontaine there are not large spots of light which light the sky, the color was of a beautiful yellow... But the sighting lasted perhaps 1 or 2 seconds... the light just passed above me to disappear towards the south... Moreover its diffuse because if I remember to have thought "hold on that would be near to a UFO sighting" I wrote the thing down only 2 or 3 months afterwards and I do not even remember the exact date.
I think that this light was of approximately the size of 2 full moons in the sky, it was thus not small...
Since then I think that the noise was not that of a helicopter and that if there were a correlation between the noise and this light it was going too fast for an helo anyway, remains a plane but to see it this size and at this speed and because I have seen 2 airshows with mirages [French supersonic jet fighter] and the patrol of France [French aerobatic team], I think that if that's what it was my tympanums would have exploded... And even then it passed too fast. Another assumption I saw what I had desired to see and I made the connections that I had desired to make. And behind that, aliens, but frankly what could they want to be fiddling about so undiscretetly above Grenoble, and why perform such an extremely noisy manoeuver???
Thanks for your attention
