October 21 or 22, 1954, Quincy-sur-Loison, Meuse:

Reference number for this case: 21 ou 22-octe-54-Quincy-sur-Loison. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

In his 1997 book on the 1954 French wave, the French ufologist Jean Sider indicated that he found a previously unpublished case in the newspaper Dimanche-Eclair of Nancy on page 5 for October 24, 1954:

Martial Henrion, aged 23, resident of Quincy-sur-Loison, said that one of latest evening at about 10:30 p.m., while returning from his work driving his motorcycle, he was suddenly surrounded sparks, and at once saw at a hundred meters in front of him in the fields a sheaf of fire, blue in its center, which rose suddenly towards the sky.

Very frightened, he immediately returned at his home. The newspaper specifies that this occurred in the locality Les Buttes de Chaumont, not far from the crossroads of the roads from Quincy, Vigneulles and Juvisy, and that a natural origin seems unexplainable at this place.
