October 14, 1954, Saulieu, Côte-d'Or:

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

Summary:

According to the regional newspaper La Bourgogne Républicaine, of Dijon, on page 4 for October 20, 1954:

Thursday, around 5 p.m., Mr. Boyau, a shoemaker in Saulieu and his wife, was traveling on the R.N. 6 by car. Going up the Saublot coast, they suddenly saw a ball of fire cross the sky in a westerly direction, at breakneck speed. In the short time they took to complete the climb, the machine was already very far away and appeared in a rather elongated form. Was it a saucer or a flying cigar? It is certain, in any case, that this phenomenon comes out of the natural.

In his 1958 book on the flying saucer wave of 1954 in France, Aimé Michel, referring to what he thought was a "score of good observations" of October 14, 1954, noted that 16 of these took place between 6 p.m. and nightfall, and that the one most north of the latter took place in Saulieu.

SAUCERS IN THE SKY OF SAULIEU?

Saulieu would soon be noticed by his stubbornness in not seeing a saucer. Now this gap is filled.

Thursday, around 5 p.m., Mr. Boyau, a shoemaker in Saulieu and his wife, was traveling on the R.N. 6 by car. Going up the Saublot coast, they suddenly saw a ball of fire cross the sky in a westerly direction, at breakneck speed. In the short time they took to complete the climb, the machine was already very far away and appeared in a rather elongated form. Was it a saucer or a flying cigar? It is certain, in any case, that this phenomenon comes out of the natural.

Saturday, around 10 p.m., five people were returning from Pouilly-en-Auxois by car. Arrived at the top of the hill of Bras-de-Fer, the occupants of the car suddenly saw a violently illuminated ball followed by a luminous trail of phosphorescent yellow, rise vertically very quickly and then move towards the south. at very high speed. The time for the driver to stop the machine had disappeared behind a hill, to the left of the road.

One of the people, particularly worthy of faith, who witnessed the passage of the luminous ball, assured us that he had never seen anything like it until then and that it is undoubtedly a a craft, saucer or cigar, whose appearance is reported everywhere.
