November 4, 1954, Saint-Nazaire, Loire-Atlantique:

Reference number for this case: 4-Nov-54-Saint-Nazaire. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In their 1979 book "La Grande Peur Martienne" ("The Great Martian Scare") intended to "debunk" the French wave of 1954, the "skeptical" ufologists Gérard Barthel and Jacques Brucker indicated that according to the newspaper La Résistance de l'Ouest, on November 4, 1954, at about 7 o'clock in Saint-Nazaire, people saw in the sky a kind of pale pink ball, diffusing a very bright light and moving from west to east.



The two authors indicate that what follows was printed in the newspaper "La Résistance de l'Ouest":

On November 4, towards 7 o'clock in Saint-Nazaire people saw in the sky, a kind of ball of pale pink color, diffusing a very sharp light and moving from west to east.


Insufficient information, possible meteor.

Barthel and Brucker did not specify the date of publishing of the article in La Résistance de l'Ouest, and it is not clear whether the "7 o'clock" hour is 7 a.m. or 7 p.m.
