In his 1956 book, pioneering ufologist Jimmy Guieu ensured that the flying saucer that landed near Biot on October 14, 1954, at 06:15 p.m. had been seen crisscrossing the sky by a crowd of people, including from Séranon.


[Ref. jgu1:] JIMMY GUIEU:

The author indicates that the flying saucer that landed close to Biot on October 14, 1954 at 18:15 was seen furrowing the skies by a crowd of people, in Séranon, among other places.
