August 31, 1954, Saint-Laurent-sur-Othain, Meuse:

Reference number for this case: 31-Aug-54-Saint-Laurent-sur-Othain. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

Citing "UFO Reports from the Files of the CIA", a collection of declassified CIA documents on UFOs by Richard Hall, and the computer catalog of Jacques Vallée, a US website indicates in the 2000s that on August 31, 1954, at 10:30 p.m., between Saint-Laurent and Bonnet, France, an "unidentified object was sighted, but with an appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation. A cigar-shaped object was observed by two witnesses."

Reports:

[Ref. uda1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 31 August 1954 at 22:30 between St Laurent and Bonnet, St Laurent, France, "An unidentified object was sighted, but with appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation. One cigar-shaped object was observed by two witnesses."

The sources are indicated as "Vallee, Jacques, Computerized Catalog (N = 3073); Hall, Richard H., UFO Reports from the Files of the CIA, Fund for UFO Research, Washington."

Explanations:

Bonnet is a commune of the Meuse, apparently the only one of this name (55059). Also in the Meuse is Saint-Laurent-sur-Othain. But the distance between these two communes is 94 kilometers, which makes this location absurd.

It is possible that two places of observation of what has been thought to be the same case have been accumulated.

As for what was observed, which would be without strangeness, it is obviously possible that it was a meteor.
