October 5, 1954, Janville, Eure-et-Loir:

Reference for this case: 5-Oct-54-Janville.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In their 1979 book, the two French ufologists Michel Figuet and Jean-Louis Ruchon indicated that according to the newspaper L'Echo Républicain for October 7, 1954, in Janville, on October 5, 1954, at 07:30 p.m., a ball of fire moving very slowly was observed.



The two authors indicate that in Janville in an unspecified department on October 5, 1954 at 07:30 p.m., a ball of fire moving very slowly was observed.

The source is given as L'Echo Républicain for October 7, 1954.

[Ref. lcn1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indique que dans l'Eure et Loir à la Janville le 5 octobre 1954 à 19:30 heures, il y a eu une observation d'une boule de feu se déplaçant très lentement.

La source est indiquée comme "Ovni, Premier dossier complet... par Figuet M./ Ruchon J.L. ** éd. Alain Lefeuvre 1979".

[Ref. jqy1:] JEAN DE QUERCY:

07/28 - 1954 October 05 - Janville

On October 5, 1954 at 7:30 p.m., a very slowly moving ball of fire was observed. This case is similar to the vision of a meteor. But the slowness of the phenomenon leaves one wondering.

Totally insufficient information, possible meteor.
