October 28, 1954, Saint-Pourçain-sur-Besbre, Allier:

Reference for this case: 28-Oct-54-Saint-Pourçain-sur-Besbre.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In a catalog of cases in the Allier, the ufology magazine Ouranos of the 3rd quarter of 1973 cited a case found in the regional newspaper La Montagne, edition of Aurillac, for November 5, 1954.

Referring to a case in Thoury dans le Loir-et-Cher, the newspaper told that the same phenomenon was observed by Mr. Charles Cruet, grocer in Saint-Pourçain-en-Besbre.

The magazine reports that the date could be either October 28, 1954 or November 4, 1954.


[Ref. ous1:] "OURANOS" MAGAZINE:

10/28/1954, Saint-Pourcain-sur-Besbre [sic] (09:30 p.m.)

Madame la Vicontesse Jehan de Conny, who was watching a cuvée in Thoury, was attracted by a sharp and strange gleam. She turned around and saw above Beauvois something in the shape of an orange rugby ball that went up and down vertically and went out all of a sudden after 3 to 4 seconds. The same phenomenon was observed by M. Charles Cruet, grocer at St-Pourcain-en-Besbre. The fact could have taken place on 11/04/1954. (La Montagne-Aurillac for 11/05/1954).


October 28 (La Montagne for 11/5) Thoury-Saint-Pourçain-sur-Besbre 21:30.

Viscountess Jean de Conny saw from Thoury a luminous oval thing, like a rugby ball, of an orange color, descending and rising above Beauvais, and then extinguished. At Saint-Pourçain-sur-Besbre the same phenomenon was observed by Mr. Gruet, grocer.
