September 14, 1954, Vabre-Tizac, Aveyron:

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

Summary:

The regional newspaper Le Midi Libre reported on September 28, 1954, from Villefranche-of-Rouergue in the Aveyron department, that an owner of "Vabre-Tézac" (actually Vabre-Tizac), Mr. Marre, saw a mass of yellowish color moving away towards the south, without leaving behind any trace of smoke.

Mr. Marre's attention had been drawn by the noise of an engine.

Other inhabitants of the locality also heard, from the inside of their house, the same noise, but not having come out, they did not see the weird "mass."

Ufologist Jean Sider published in 1997 what he found in the newspapers Le Rouergue Républicain for September 23, 1954 and Le Midi Libre for September 26, 1954:

On September 14, 1954, at an unknown hour, in Vabre-Tizac, Aveyron, Mr. Marre was attracted outside by a strange noise that he had heard for a while. When he had gone out, he went around his farm and saw nothing yet, when he saw a strange apparatus with a luminous circle at its lower part, rising above him at a brisk pace.

Other people reportedly saw the craft too, some of them describing it as big, brilliant, superimposed rings. When the object disappeared, the witnesses came to the alleged lading site, but did not notice any trace, so they decided to say nothing about this case.

It was only on Monday, September 20, 1954, that Mr. Marre, at "Quatre Routes", narrated his observation.

Reports:

[Ref. lme1:] "LE MIDI LIBRE" NEWSPAPER:

Flying saucers

of a rugby ball and appeared to be at a considerable height."

In the Meurthe-and-Moselle, several tens of workmen of "Sidelor", living the area of Lantefontaine-les-Baroches (M.-and-M.). claim to have seen six flying cigars between 04:30 and 05:00 in the sky.

"We initially saw, they said, two "cigars", then afterwards, four other craft came to join the two first. All remained motionless one moment for finally disappearing instantaneously."

In Le Puy, Mrs. Chaumard, resident of the district of La Girète, saw in the sky a machine having the shape of a cigar reddish glowing at an end, silent and appearing motionless. She managed to observe the machine during nearly a quarter of hour, then the "cigar" suddenly disappeared by taking altitude.

The same observations were made by six inhabitants of Langeac (Haute-Loire) and several inhabitants of Gelles (Puy-de-Dome) or Clermont-Ferrand.

In this area, rugby players training at the Vichy stadium saw a "flying cigar".

In the Aveyron

From Villefranche-of-Rouergue in Aveyron, it is reported that an owner of Vabre-Tézac [sic], Mr. Marre, saw a yellowish mass of color which moved away towards the south, without leaving behind any trace of smoke.

The attention of Mr. Marre had been drawn by the noise of an engine.

Other inhabitants of the locality also heard, from the inside of their house, the same noise, but not having come out, they did not see the weird "mass."

[Ref. dvl1:] DANIEL VIDAL:

Now here is a series of articles that Daniel Vidal of Nîmes sent us. This young boy, well known to the VERONICA group had to carry out a long and painstaking research work in the archive of the newspaper "Midi-Libre" in order to be able to communicate to us these articles and we congratulate him.

- The sky of France is furrowed with "cigars" and "flying saucers"

Paris, September 25 - In several localities in France, there is the appearance of "cigars" or "flying saucers" in the sky.

Thus in Charron (Charente-Maritime), three fishermen and a customs officer declare having seen during one of these last nights, a formation of flying saucers moving very low and flying over the shore before disappearing.

In Bayonne, locals say they saw high up in the sky three mysterious objects of clear hue, sharply visible on the sky. A peace officer, Mr. Carrions, observed these three immobile craft set in triangle, of slightly oval shape.

"They had, he said, the size of a rugby ball and seemed to be at a considerable height."

In the Meurthe-et-Moselle, dozens of workers from "Sidelor" living in the region of Lantéfontaine-les-Baroches (M-and-M) claim to have seen six "flying cigars" in the sky between 4:30 a.m. and 5:30 a.m.

"We first saw, they said, two "cigars", then after four other craft joined the first two, all remained motionless to finally disappear instantly."

In Le Puy, Mrs. Chaumard, living in the Trinité district, saw in the sky a craft in the shape of a cigar glowing red at one end, silent and motionless. She was able to observe the craft hovering nearly fifteen minutes, then the "cigar" suddenly disappeared while gaining altitude.

The same observations were made by six residents of Langeac (Haute-Loire) and several others from Les Gelles (Puy-de-Dôme) or Clermont-Ferrand. In this region, rugby players at the Vichy stadium, saw a "flying cigar".

In the Aveyron

From Villefranche de Rouergue in the Aveyron, an owner of Vabre-Tizac, Mr. Marre, is reported to have seen a yellow-colored mass moving southwards, without leaving behind any traces of smoke.

Mr. Marre's attention was drawn to the sound of a motor. Other inhabitants of the locality also heard the same noise from inside their house, but not having come out, they did not see the singular "mass". (Midi Libre 09/26/54.) (2-3)

[Ref. jsr1:] JEAN SIDER:

Ufologist and author Jean Sider learned the existence of this case from September 14, 1954 at an unknown time in Vabre-Tizac, in the department of the Aveyron, by two articles in the newspapers Le Rouergue Républicain for September 23, 1954 and Le Midi Libre for September 26, 1954. He provides the contents summary as follows:

Mr. Marre was attracted outside by a strange noise which he had been hearing for a while. When he had come out, he walked around his farm and did not have yet anything, when he saw an odd apparatus having a luminous circle at its lower part, rising above him at a sharp pace.

Other people are said to have also seen the machine, some describing it as similar to large superimposed brilliant rings. When the object disappeared, the witnesses came on the supposed landing site, but did not note any trace, therefore they decided to say nothing ot this sighting.

It is only Monday, September 20, 1954 that Mr. Marre, at the "Quatre Routes", told of his observation.
