September 19th.

Just north of Vichy and approximately in the center of France is the village of Rongers [sic] where a bright elliptical UFO crossed the sky at 4:30 the afternoon of September 19th. A second UFO quickly followed the first, zipping by directly overhead, the object clearly revealed its circular outline. Instead of ignoring the village like the earlier UFO, this object braked to a stop, made a big orbit of the community, and then swiftly left on a southeastly course.

Moments later at Beal Pass, some 40 miles southeast of Rongers, three sisters having a picnic, Mme. Delaire, Madeline [sic] Gauthier, and Marie Christine; sighted a gray metallic-looking disc come out of the northern sky and hover within easy viewing distance. The women watched as the flat object hovered for approximately half a minute, swaying gently, until it sped away in the direction of Clermont-Ferrand.

A couple of motorcyclists passing by at the time added their testimony to that of the sisters.

Another such object appeared at Montlucon at the same time. Montlucon is about 70 miles northwest of Beal Pass. 93.

The source "93" is indicated further on as: "Michel, Aime. Flying Saucers and the Straight-Line Mystery. p.62."
