September 29, 1954, Cavillargues, Gard:

Reference number for this case: 29-Sep-54-Cavillargues. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


The "skeptical" ufologists Gérard Barthel and Jacques Brucker reported in their 1979 book that in Cavillargués (sic) in the Gard, on September 29, 1954, the passage of a luminous cigar observed by a garage owner and reported in the Midi Libre newspaper for October 2, 1954, was actually a hoax.



Yet another thing: do not imagine that hoaxes are the preserve of important cases with occupants, structured objects on the ground. It exists for the period that we studied a quantity of information, succinct cases in flight which, when they are not due to the pure and simple passage of a meteorite, are the deeds of pranksters. For example in Cavillargués [sic] (Gard) on September 29 (12), where the passage of a luminous cigar was observed by a mechanic.

12. - Midi Libre of the Gard for October 2.
