Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


French journalist and pioneer ufologist Charles Garreau wrote that in the Côte-d'Or, in Saint-Maurice-sur-Vingeanne, on January 26, 1954, at 04:50 a.m., there was an observation of a very bright object "flying" to the northeast.

He, like others later, had not realized that it was the meteor that had flown over the Côte-d'Or and the Vosges at that time.
