October 16, 1954, Les Martres, Puy-de-Dôme:

Reference for this case: 16-oct-54-Les-Martres.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In May 1973 in a Puy-de-Dôme cases catalog, the ufology magazine Lumières Dans La Nuit #125 indicated that at Les Martres in the Puy-de-Dôme department, on October 16, 1954, at 09:30 p.m., Mr. Chaal saw a luminous ball leaving two parallel trails moving from East to West.

The magazine gave no source and did not mention the meteor that passed over France at that moment.


[Ref. aml1:] AIME MICHEL:

Aimé Michel wrote about the October 16, 1954, 09:30 p.m. meteor:

THE TEST OF THE METEOR. October 16, as if it was purposely, a splendid meteor crossed the north of France towards 09:30 p.m.. It was observed on a score of departments by thousands of people, from the Allier to Lorraine and from the Swiss border to Paris. Naturally many witnesses believed to have seen a Flying Saucer and said so. The newspapers printed "Flying Saucer in Orly", or "in Montididier", or "in Metz." But once again the description made by all these weak brains appeared of a remarkable honesty.


The innumerable gathered testimonys show indeed that even when the witnesses called "Flying saucer" the observed object, their description is identical on 200.000 square kilometres where the visible phenomenon was visible: an "orange ball followed by a trail", a "large luminous ball with a tail", a "flying egg followed by a trail", a "bottle's bottom with a trail of thirty times its diameter", etc. The same phenomenon is uniformly described.



This magazine indicates that in Les Martres in the Puy-de-Dôme, at 09:30 p.m., on October 16, 1954, M. Chaal saw a luminous ball leaving two parallel trails going from East to West.
