October 11, 1954, Bremondans, Doubs:

Reference number for this case: 11-Oct-54-Bremondans. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In the 1990s, the ufologist and author Jean Sider told, from an article in the newspaper La République, of Belfort, for October 26, 1954, that on October 11, 1954, at 06:45 p.m., between Bremondans and Baume-les-Dames in the Doubs department, plowing horses were frightened by "a cigar-shaped saucer" (sic); which was 20 meters away from them. The witnesses were M. Cassard and P. Voirin.

In his 2014 book, Julien Gonzalez gave these additional details: M. Cassard and P. Voirin were plowing a field when they saw a cigar-shaped saucer of yellowish and bluish color.

And: "A character appeared and disappeared after two minutes."

[Ref. lcn1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that Luc Chastan indicates that in Doubs in Bremondans, on October 11, 1954 at 18:45 hours, two farmers busy plowing a field see an object in the shape of cigar of yellowish and bluish color. The horses were frightened when they saw this phenomenon at 20 m of them approximately. A figure seemed to appear and disappear at the end of two minutes.

Luc Chastan indicates that the source is Lumières dans la Nuit.

[Ref. uda1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 11 October 1954 at 18:40, in Bremondans, France, there was an "animal reaction: horses panic and run. Bluish yellow saucer only 20m away. Figure seen for two minutes. An object was observed. Occupants of the craft were seen. Animal reactions to the object were reported. One object was observed by two witnesses on a farm for two minutes."

The source is indicated as "Hatch, Larry, *U* computer database, Author, Redwood City, 2002."


The author indicates that there was a close encounter of the third kind between Bremondans and Baume-les-Dames, in the Doubs, on October 11, 1954 at 18:45:

M. Cassard and P. Voirin plowed a field when they saw a cigar-shaped saucer of yellow and bluish color. The horses were frightened because the craft was 20 m away from them.

A character appeared and disappeared after two minutes.

Sources are indicated as "La République (Belfort) for October 26, 1954; Jean Sider, Le dossier 1954 et l'imposture rationaliste, page 196."

[Ref. nip1:] "THE NICAP WEBSITE":

*Oct. 11, 1954 - At 6:40 p.m. horses panicked and ran when a bluish yellow saucer approached them to within 20 meters in Bremondans, Doubs, France. A figure was seen for two minutes. (Source: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case # 3872, citing Jean Sider, Dossier 1954 et l'Imposture Rationaliste, p. 196).


Sider [jsr1] gave the time as 06:45 p.m., all the other source said it was at 06:40 p.m.

Bremondans is a hamlet about 12 kilometers South of Baume-les-Dames.

The information is quite insufficient; it was apparently only a short story of the press, without investigation.

In particular, nothing is said about the "character" who "appeared and disappeared after two minutes."
