January 4, 1954, Arles, Bouches-du-Rhône:

Reference for this case: 4-Jan-54-Arles.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In the 2010s, a German web-based UFO sightings database indicated that there was a sighting of the "close encounter of the 2nd kind" on January 4, 1954 at 9:00 p.m. in Arles in France.

Neither source nor details were given.


[Ref. ubk1:] "UFO-DATENBANK":

Case Nr. New case Nr. Investigator Date of observation Zip Place of observation Country of observation Hour of observation Classification Comments Identification

Totally insufficient information.

It is possible that this record actually refers to the famous case of Marignage near there at the same date, or the case in Saint-Martin-de-Crau on January 5, 1954.
