October 2, 1954, Gondrecourt-le-Château, Meuse:

Reference for this case: 2-Oct-54-Gondrecourt-le-Château.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

In the 1950s, Guy Quincy, a French archivist interested in the question of the unidentified flying objects, compiled a catalog of sightings.

He noted in it, without indication of source or details, a sighting "around October 4" 1954, at an unknown time, in "Gondrecourt (Meuse)"

Around 2015, a German UFO sighting database indicated, without indication of source and without any details, that there was a case of "Nocturnal Light(s)" on October 2, 1954, in "Vondrcourt" in France. As this database is accustomed to misspelling names, I guess it could be Gondrecourt-le-Château, in the Meuse department.

1.1 Patrick Gross May 4, 2022 Addition [gqy1]. Summary changed, was "About 2015, a German database of UFO sightings indicates that there was a ase of the "Nocturnal Lights" type on October 2, 1954, in "Vondrcourt" in France. I found no other source about this so far. Moreover, I found no "Vondrecourt" in France. As this database often mispells names, I suppose it could have been Gondrecourt-le-Château, in the Meuse department."
