Reference number for this case: 21-Oct-54-Nordausques. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

The regional newspaper Nord Littoral, of Calais, reported on page 6 for October 23, 1954:

Mr. Queval Albert, butcher at Nordausques, was returning by car from Mortleulignhem to Nordausques, at midnight 20, Wednesday October 20. Suddenly, at the top of the great hill which descends on Nordausques, Mr. Queval saw in the fields three blue spherical objects which moved rapidly one meter from the ground. Sometimes they would go out and then reappear further with their blue lights. Mr. Queval, who had stopped his car, then left for Nordausques, but found, given the late hour, no one awake who could have returned with him to the place where these three objects were moving. It was only the next day that he had to tell his friends and what he had seen. Is this curious phenomenon a saucer? Did other curious people see it?

In the 1990's, French ufologist and author Jean Sider indicated he discovered a case of October 21, 00:20, between Nortleulinghem and Nordausques, in the department of the Pas-de-Calais, in an article of the newspaper Nord-Littoral for October 23, 1954:

Albert Queval, butcher in Nordausques, was returning to his place by car when suddenly, at the top of the large hillside which goes down towards Nordausques, he saw three blue spherical objects which moved quickly at one meter above the ground. Sometimes they died out and then re-ignited further.
