THE FLYING SAUCERS
APPEAR IN INDIA
IN ITALY AND... IN THE OISE

The flying saucers continue their round. For the first time their presence was reported in India in the region of Calcutta, where one saw above the suburbs "a brilliantly illuminated circular object". Another such object was seen some 320 km away.

In Italy

If we are to believe the words of an Italian peasant woman from Piggi-di-Ambra, near Arezzo, Martians appeared to her while she was going to mass.

The woman, Mrs. Rosa Lotti, 40, who recounted her encounter to the police, clarified that the two beings, measuring about one meter, were dressed in a kind of diving suit and wore a leather helmet that partly concealed their face.

In the Oise

In the Oise, "mysterious" craft continue to appear.

Very recently, a farmer from Ressons-sur-Matz who came to bring fodder to his oxen parked in a field, was astonished that these, instead of being grouped together as usual, were dispersed. It was then that he saw an unusual "object" in the meadow. The farmer ran to his car to pick up witnesses. When they returned, the craft was no longer in the grass. However, the farmer claims to have seen it rise vertically. In addition, burn marks were then visible on the grass, where the craft had landed.

In Compiègne

Monday evening, residents of the top of the rue de la Justice saw a cigar which remained visible, according to witnesses, from 8:55 p.m. to 9:19 p.m.

For his part one of our collaborators saw the same night, around 2 a.m., an object leaving behind a long luminous trail.
