The ufology magazine Lumières Dans La Nuit #319 of July 1993 indicated that on October 1st, 1954, in Trémuson, near Saint-Brieuc in the Côte-d'Armor department, several complementary testimonies had reported the observation for 4 to 5 minutes before 09:00 p.m., of a red crescent shape quite high in the sky and then on the horizon.

Reports:

[Ref. ldl1:] "LUMIERES DANS LA NUIT" MAGAZINE:

On October 1st, 1954, in Trémuson, near Saint-Brieuc in the département of Côte-d'Armor, several complementary witnesses told about the observation during 4 to 5 minutes before 09:00 P.M. of a shape of crescent of red color quite high in the sky and then on the horizon.

[Ref. leo1:] "L'ECHO":

In an insert following an article about UFO's, headlined "1954: the big UFO wave", the magazine indicates that "If one believes the testimonys collected by the ufologists on their websites the year 1954 was rich of "appearances"."

The magazine cites a few regional case, such as:

"Trémuson, October 1st, 1954 at 08:55 p.m."

"Several witnesses observe during 4 to 5 minutes a shape of red crescent rather high in the sky then on the horizon."

[Ref. lcn1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in Côtes d'Armor in Trémuson on October 1, 1954, at 20:55 hours, "several complementary testimonys give a report on the observation during during 4 to 5 minutes before 21:00, of the shape of red crescent rather high in the sky then on the horizon."

The source is said to by my website at "http://ufologie.net" [The old home page URL of my website].

Explanations:

A red crescent... Thus the Moon situation needs to be checked.

From Trémuson (48° 31' 24'' North, 2° 50' 54'' West), on October 1, 1954, at 09:00 p.m., the Moon is at azimuth 239° 32' but at an elevation of 5° 42' underthe horizon.

But, since it only just set at 08:21 p.m., that it appeared as a crescent, with 19.8% of its surface lit, and so low that there was a chance to have a "Red Moon", and if one is willing to remember that the sighting hours were not really always precise at that time, one would agree that this observation otherwise without strangeness can be explained by the Moon.
