French ufologist Jean Sider discovered the case of October 21, 07:00 P.M., in Longeville-lès-St. Avold, in the department of the Moselle, in an article of the newspaper Le Républicain Lorrain for October 24, 1954.

Eugene Braun, a resident of St Avold, was returning from Paris by car. On the national road, mear "Trois-Maisons", his attention was drawn by a multitude of luminous balls laid out symmetrically and concentrically in a field at approximately 20O meters of the road. These balls were of various colors: yellow, green, red. They lighted when the car passed by and extincted afterwards. If they were the headlights of a saucer, supposed the witness, it has to be an enormous one. The witness preferred to continue his travel whereas the machine did not seem yet to have taken off.

Explanations:
