In Radar magazine for November 7, 1954, appeared a photo captioned "'I'm not crazy!' Roland Dumont, a farmer in La Chapelle-Champigny (Yonne), swears he has seen a saucer: 'It was yellow as the sun and as big as a washtub.'"


[Ref. rdr1:] "RADAR" MAGAZINE:

RADAR -- November 7, 1954

Photo caption: I'm not crazy! Roland Dumont, a farmer at La Chapelle-Champigny (Yonne), swears he saw a saucer: "it was yellow as the sun, and as big as a washtube."

Note: this copy from Radar magazine was filed in the USAF Project Blue Book file; the translation was by Alexander Mebane, a correspondent of French ufologist Aimé Michel. The French text is almost unreadable, but Mebane's translation is readable.


Insufficient information, moon or meteor possible.

Champigny is a French commune in the Yonne, which includes two hamlets including La Chapelle.
