Reference number for this case: 5-Oct-54-Consigny. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

In 1980, the local ufology group "5255" published their transcript of an article in the newspaper Le Haut-Marnais Républicain of October 9-10, 1954; which reported that a "flying cigar" had been seen in Consigny.

The article reported that Mr. Gaston Etienne, of Bourdons, and Mr. Paul Sponhauer, of Consigny, were preparing to lunch in the quarry where they worked, on the territory of Consigny, on the morning of October 5, 1954, at 8 o'clock, when their attention was attracted by the presence in the sky, North direction, and moving from East to West, on a craft in the shape of a cigar slightly tightened in the middle, in a vertical position, with multiple and changing colors where blue and green dominated, and shining at intervals in the sun.

They had watched this "cigar" moving slowly at "a certain height" for a few minutes.

Reports:

CONSIGNY: Cigare volant

Alors que Mr Gaston Etienne, de Bourdons, et Mr Paul Sponhauer, de Consigny, se préparaient à déjeuner dans la carrière où ils travaillaient, sur le territoire de Consigny, Mardi matin à 8h, leur attention fut attirée par la présence dans le ciel, direction Nord, et se dirigeant d'Est en Ouest, d'un engin ayant la forme d'un cigare légèrement resserré en son milieu, en position verticale, aux couleurs multiples et changeantes où dominaient le bleu et le vert, et qui brillait par intervalles au soleil.

Ils suivirent quelques minutes ce "cigare" qui se déplaçait lentement à une certaine hauteur.

L'apparition de ces engins mystérieux dans de nombreuses régions continue donc à passionner les populations.

[Ref. fle1:] FRANCOIS LAGARDE:

French well-known fologist François Lagarde compiled two articles of the newspaper "Le Haut-Marnais Républicain":

MISTERS Gaston Etienne and Paul Sponhauer, the first of Bourdons, the other of Consigny, prepared themselves for lunch in the career where they worked on the career of Consigny, this Tuesday morning at 8. Their attention was drawn by the presence in the sky, in the Northern direction, moving from the East to the West, of a machine having the shape of a cigar slightly narrowing in its middle, in vertical position, with the multiple and changing colors, where the blue and the green dominated, and which was shining at the sun by interval.

They followed on this "cigar" which moved slowly with a certain height for a few minutes.

[Ref. lcn1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in the Haute Marne in Consigny on October 5, 1954 at 08:00 hours, two witnesses prepared to lunching in the quarry where they worked. Their attention was drawn by the presence in the sky, Northern direction, moving from East to West, of an object having the shape of a cigar slightly slimmer in its middle, in vertical position, with multiple and changing colors, where blue and green dominated, and which was shining by interval at the sun. They followed it a few minutes as it moved slowly at some height.
