Summary:

The regional newspaper Le Berry Républicain, of Bourges, reported on October 5, 1954, that two young boys in the class of Mr. Chataigne, director of the school of Vierzon-Bourgneuf, had said they had seen flying saucers, and made a complete description to their teacher.

One of the observations was that of the young Alain Baumgarten who had seen on "Thursday" (so on September 30, 1954) around 10:30, with some of his classmates, "a craft moving in the sky."

Then, "Friday night", so on October 1, 1954, around 07:00 p.m., the young Jean Rousseau, from his parents' garden, reportedly saw "a luminous machine, which, after making a turn on itself, rose at high speed."
