Le Poiré sur Vie

Some ten
flying saucers

Last Monday, at about 09:30 P.M., the inhabitants of the villages of la Rethelière and la Pierre-Levée as well as several people of the districts of la Brachetière and le Printemps, at the exit of the borough of le Poiré sur Vie on the road of La Roche sur Yon, Mrs. Piffeteau, Minaud and Buton, saw, in the sky, ten luminous objects, of elongated shape.

These objects, several meters long and of red and green color, passed at a very high altitude and a very high speed, with the result that they could be observed only during a few moments only. Coming from the direction of north, they moved towards the sea, without emitting any noise.

[Ref. jbu1:] JEROME BEAU:

Monday, October 4, 1954


21:30 In Le Poiré-sur-Vie (Vendée), several women see tens of luminous lengthened phenomena move towards the sea, during a few moments.
