September 29, 1954, Ancerville, Meuse:

Reference for this case: 29-Sep-54-Ancerville.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


The regional newspaper L'Est Républicain for October 5, 1954, reported that they had read in the press that on September 29, 1954, around 8:30 p.m., a railway worker from Ancerville saw the object seen at the same time in Commercy.



"It will be said that I am a joker", told us George Guillemin, baker. "Wednesday evening September 29, whereas I was in Commercy to spend my Thursday of rest there, and that the crowd was going to another direction to see the Super Circus, I was with the Berthemy district at about 08:30 P.M. with my young daughter Jocelyne, aged 10. In the sky, we saw a luminous tube, about of the diameter of the Moon, during at least ten seconds, in the direction of Couzance-St-Dizier."

Since then we read in the newspapers that Mr. the Mayor of St-Dizier and a railwayman of Ancerville had also seen it at the same hour this same Wednesday. A person told us, as well as his wife, to have seen a luminous object like the Moon, but a little smaller, hovering in the direction of Bar-le-Duc.
