September 21, 1954, Talence, Gironde:

Reference for this case: 21-Sep-54-Talence.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In a general catalog of observations of the Gironde written by the Bordeaux section of the CFRU, published in the ufology magazine Ouranos in the fourth quarter of 1973, it is said that according to the newspaper Sud-Ouest of September 22, 1954, the following observation took place:

On September 21, 1954, at 7 o'clock in Talence, J. Olacia saw for a few seconds a disc-shaped luminous object; which "disappeared" at great speed.



September 21, 1954 7 a.m. Talence VI

Witness: J. Olacia. Luminous disc-shaped object.

Duration: several seconds. Disapears at high speed.

S.O. September 22, 54



SEPTEMBER 21, 1954 07:00 a.m. Talence V 1

Witness: OLACI[?]. Luminous disc-shaped object visible for a few seconds before disappearing at high speed.

(S.O. October 09, 1954)

Note: "V 1" stands for "bad observations", a report for which it is difficult to rule out a misinterpretation.

[Ref. gep1:] UFOLOGY GROUP "GEPO":

09 21 54 (07) Pas de Calais Indre Gironde 100C2 B?



The information is totally insufficient, but this might have been a meteor, of course.

The witness, Joachim Olacia, died on December 30, 1965, in Saint-Maicaire, and was buried in Talence.
