FRANCE -- [... others...] 5/11 [... others...] Moulins, [... others...]


This magazine indicates that on November 5, 1954, at 08:40 P.M. in Moulins, the same object than the one Mr Aubert saw in Chanat in Puy-de-Dôme ten minutes earlier was seen. The object seen in Chanat was of the size of a plate, tinted of pale yellow, and dazed in the direction from the South to the North.


11/05/1954 Moulins (08:40 p.m.)

Mr. Georges Biquet observed a luminous ball that crossed the sky above the Cours Jean-Jaurès along a north-south path, dropping a shower of sparks in its wake. According to some other witnesses, it would have been animated by a rapid movement of rotation. (La Montagne-Aurillac du 11/08/1954).


November 5 (La Montagne for 11/6) Moulins 08:40 p.m..

M. Biquet perceived a blue-green fireball, with a rotational movement, followed by sparks, rapidly moving on an S-N trajectory. At Chanat (63) at 08:30 p.m., a witness had seen a clear yellow FS, becoming blue-green, rotational movement and luminous trail: probably the same object as 5nov1954herisson.htmin Louroux-Hodemont.

[Ref. lcn1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates in his database that in the Allier in Moulins on November 5, 1954 at 20:40 hours, there was an "Observation of an object going from the south to the north."

The source is noted: "Lumières dans la Nuit".

[Ref. uda1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 5 November 1954 at 20:40 in Moulins, France, "An unidentified object was sighted, but with appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation. One object, the size of the moon, was observed by several witnesses for over four minutes."

The source is noted "Poher, Claude, Etudes Statistiques Portant sur 1000 Temoignag, Author, undated" and "Vallee, Jacques, Computerized Catalog (N = 3073)".
