August 30, 1954, Attichy, Oise:

Reference number for this case: 30-August-54-Attichy. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

The regional newspaper L'Oise-Matin, of Beauvais, reported on page 1 for September 1, 1954, a sighting in Creil, "Monday evening ", therefore on August 30, 1954, around 8 p.m., of a "luminous phenomenon."

The newspaper added to this that the director of an important establishment in Attichy sent them the following message:

"Yesterday evening, Monday, around 8:15 p.m., when I was in a dark room, I looked out the window. I saw in the sky which was darkening at that time, a ball of fire appearing to fall perpendicularly in an approximate north-south direction. The phenomenon lasted several seconds and the ball was moving at a very high speed."

This witness also told them that "the glow of this thing was roughly the same as a motorcycle headlight seen at night or a 100 Watta lamp going off."

"The thing passed out in the air. I expected to hear an explosion afterwards, but no, nothing."

The newspaper wondered if it was "'flying saucers' or unmanned vehicles?"

FLYING
SAUCERS IN
THE SKY OF THE OISE

An in-
candescent craft
seen
in Creil then
in Attichy
Monday evening

SINCE 1947, the "Flying Saucers" have crisscrossed the skies all over the world, without anyone being able to unravel the mystery.

On various occasions, transport planes were surrounded by curious craft emitting bluish radiation. Supersonic planes were able to approach others, after hectic pursuits, without however being able to reach them because their speed was such that at the decisive moment, the "saucers" left the humans without difficulties.

A voluminous "Flying Saucers" file is kept preciously in the chests of the pentagon and these phenomena are studied with interest:

Are these unmanned projectiles coming from the old continent, or are we in the presence of aerial ships launched by other planets? This is the question posed by scientists around the world who, for their part, have had the opportunity to observe a large number of similar phenomena through the lenses of their telescopes.

The famous "Flying saucers" appeared among us and several reliable observers just reported their presence in the sky of the Oise.

In Creil, Monday evening, around 8 p.m., a luminous phenomenon was observed. Was it the passage of a remote-controlled rocket or a saucer? We do not yet know, but one fact is certain, it is that a very apparent gleam was seen by civilians in Creil, and by several officers of the air base.

The director of an important establishment in Attichy sends us the following message: "Yesterday evening, Monday, around 8:15 p.m., standing in a dark room, staring out the window, I saw in the darkening sky at that time, a ball of fire appearing to fall perpendicularly in an approximate north-south direction. The phenomenon lasted several seconds and the ball was moving at a very high speed."

Our interlocutor tells us that the incandescence of this thing was roughly similar to that of a motorcycle lantern seen at night or that of a 100 watt lamp that would go off. "The thing passed out in the sky. I expected to hear an explosion afterwards, but no, nothing."

Are we in the presence of "flying saucers" or unmanned vehicles? The mystery remains unsolved.
