Summary:

In 1979, ufologists Michel Figuet and Jean-Louis Ruchon mentioned in their book cataloging close encounters in France, that on October 5, 1954, in Sarlat-la-Canéda in the Dordogne department, a grocer had observed "a cigar and three saucers."

Reports:

[Ref. lcn1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in the Dordogne with Sarlat Canéda on October 5, 1954 at an unknown hour, a grocer observes a cigar and three saucers.

Luc Chastan indicates that the source is "Ovni, Premier dossier complet... by Figuet M./ Ruchon J.L. ** Alain Lefeuvre pub. 1979".

Explanations:
