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

Summary:

In the 1990's, the French ufologist and author Jean Sider learned in an article from the newspaper Le Comtois, of Besancon, for October 18, 1954, on page 2, that on October 14, 1954, at 11 o'clock in the morning, in Trévillers in the Doubs department, Bernard Emile, farmer, was busy plowing a patch of land near the locality Le Crépon, when he heard a whistling sound comparable with that of a jet; which was followed of a similar noise to a deafened shot.

At once, he saw rising in the sky a circle of luminous smoke, shining of various colors, which disappeared quickly.

Having returned on the spot of the appearance with people who had also heard the noise, he did not discover anything abnormal. "Was that about a flying saucer or fall of an aerolite? The mystery remains whole," the newspaper concluded.
