October 14, 1954, Fouesnant, Finistère:

Reference number for this case: 14-Oct-54-Fouesnant. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

In the archives of the GEPSI ufology group, from the Finistère, I was able to find a case dated October 14, 1954; which took place in or near Fouesnant.

The GEPSI indicated that it was an observation of the "Nocturnal Lights" type, taking place from 10:20 p.m. to 10:22 p.m., with two witnesses, that the source was a fishing-guard boat from Concarneau, and that the investigation revealed that it was a misinterpretation caused by alarm flares.

The start of an article in an unidentified press source was cited by the GEPSI.

Summary of the case: WEIRD APPEARANCES IN the SKY OF SOUTH FINISTERE
THE PHENOMENA HAVE BEEN OBSERVED FROM ISLANDS GLENANS TO POULDREUZIC
The area of Fouesnant seems to be privileged fot reports of interplanetary demonstrations or phenomena - as you want - which currently agitate the public opinion.

There had been ten days ago the weird appearance of Gouesnach whose some children of the public school had made an account, at the same time original, curious and puzzling by this fact that five school children had said the same thing without to have spoken together.

Here after Gouesnach, a similar phenomenon was observed in the very borough of the canton of Fouesnant, but by night this time, whereas in Gouesnach the saucer evolved around the bell-tower in full midday. We excuse ourselves to put in the high-speed motorboat of the well-known conveyor of Fouesnant who was the principal witness of the oddities observed in the south-finistère Thursday evening, but that is necessary for logic of the relation and because of concordant observations.
