Reference number for this case: 20-Oct-54-Maubeuge. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In their local edition of Maubeuge, the regional newspaper Nord-Matin for October 24, 1954, reported that the chief mailman of their town, Mr. Arthur Bury, living on rue de la Providence, reportedly saw "Wednesday" - therefore on October 20, 1954 - around 9:55 p.m., for only a few seconds, an illuminated mass moving towards the Northeast at breakneck speed.

The newspaper wondered if it was a "saucer."
