June 10, 1954, Avignon, Vaucluse:

Reference for this case: 10-Jun-54-Avignon.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In the 2000s, a U.S. database of UFO sightings cases noted that on June 10, 1954, at 10:20 p.m., in Avignon, in the Vaucluse, France, an unidentified object was sighted, but with an appearance and behavior that would most likely have a conventional explanation.

The source was given as the computerized catalog of Jacques Vallée.

A few years later, a German ufology Web database noted the case, without source, and removing any mention of the very probable conventional explanation.


[Ref. uda1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 10 June 1954 at 22:20 in Avignon, France, "An unidentified object was sighted, but with appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation. One object was observed."

The source is indicated as "Vallee, Jacques, Computerized Catalog (N = 3073)".
