October 26, 1954, Gatteville-le-Phare, Manche:

Reference number for this case: 26-Oct-54-Gatteville. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

In the 2000s, a database of UFO sightings on the American Web indicated that on October 26, 1954, in Gatteville-le-Phare, an unidentified object was sighted by several witnesses, but it had an appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation.

Reports:

[Ref. uda1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 26 October 1954 in the morning in Gateville, France "An unidentified object was sighted, but with appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation. One object was observed by several witnesses (Phare)."

The sources are indicated as "Bowen, Charles, The Humanoids: FSR Special Edition No. 1, FSR, London, 1966; Vallee, Jacques, Computerized Catalog (N = 3073)".

Case Nr. New case Nr. Investigator Date of observation Zip Place of observation Country of observation Hour of observation Classification Comments Identification

Notes:

There is no "Gateville" in France; there is a "Gatteville", now called Gatteville-le-Phare, in the department of the Manche.

[uda1] notes "Phare" as if it were a witness' name; whereas it is more likely a part of the city's name, or the explanation, phare meaning lighthouse.

Contrarily to the claim in [uda1], there is bothing about this observation in "Bowen, Charles, The Humanoids: FSR Special Edition No. 1, FSR."

The information is totally insufficient, but there was apparently no strangeness in it.

Explanations:

Not looked for yet. The lighthouse?

Keywords:

(These keywords are only to help queries and are not implying anything.)

Gatteville-le-Phare, Gateville, Manche, lighthouse
