October 5, 1954, Trémolat, Dordogne:

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


In the regional newspaper La Voix du Perigord for October 9, 1954, one learns that Mrs. Lamothe, farmer in Trémolat, on October 5, 1954, exactly 1 hour, while she had just spent the evening with relatives and friends and as she was alone on her doorstep, was suddenly dazzled by three "balls connected by a string of light", very illuminating, one white, the other green, the third red, superimposed, but clearly separated.

The trio, in a perfectly synchronized movement, rose, descended, swayed.

Then, two new "balls" appeared, each of the size of the full moon, giving a soft green light perfectly illuminating the details of the tops of the neighboring hills - the trees, the groves.

These two globes had just disappeared after an upward movement when the first three balls appeared.

In front of their rapid advance, Mrs. Lamothe hurriedly retreated and locked her kitchen door, very scared.



Saucers visit the land of the Cro-Magnon man

The Dordogne could not fail in its touristic reputation. This is why its sites being known worldwide and even beyond, the mysterious craft trailing no less mysterious characters, came to visit the area...

Mr. Roger Ravidat has just worked with the Progil factory, in Lardin, saw, whereas he was in Lavalade, a sphere of one meter to one meter fifty of diameter flying over the valley of Vézère. This sphere was very luminous and seemed to be a phosphorescent round which moved while whirling in the sky.

The same phenomenon reproduced towards the Chambon, but then it appeared much more closer.

On October 5, around 09:45 p.m., Mr. Jules Nicolas, domiciled at the mill of Rafalle, perceived a noise as powerful as sudden, in front of his place. He went outside and scanned the sky. He then saw at a height of approximately 200 meters and magnifying as if it made an operation to go down, a whirling and luminous sphere, which suddenly changed color. He called his wife who also noted the presence of the machine which, suddenly taking height, started to slip by at a vertiginous pace in direction of Lajemave, leaving behind itself three luminous trails.

Let's add that Mr. Nicolas, who is a city council man, is absolutely certain of what he saw.

In addition, Mrs. Lamothe, farmer in Trémolat, experienced, on her part, one of these "big scare" that one remembers all his life...

In the early morning of Tuesday October 5, at one o'clock exactly, whereas she had just spent the evening with parents and friends and as she was alone on her doorstep, she was suddenly dazzled by three "balls connected by a luminous cord", very illuminating, one white, the other green, the third red, superimposed, but definitely separate.

This trio, in a perfectly synchronized movement, rose, went down, swung... Then red two new "balls" appeared, each one of the size of the full moon, providing a tender green light lighting perfectly the details of the summits of the close slopes (trees, thickets). The two spheres had just disappeared after an upswing, when the first three balls emerged.

In front of their fast forward movement, Mrs. Lamothe retreated hurriedly and double closed the door of her kitchen.

seen yesterday evening near Bordas

One of our sympathetic compatriots, Mr. Mathias, electrician on street Limogeanne, returned by car yesterday evening, Friday, from Bergerac, when at the famous well known turn, a little before Bordas: "I saw - it is Mr. Mathias himself who speaks now - a large spinning top which occupied the entire width of the road and of 3 meters height approximately. My engine was fixed stalled. Hardly one second after, the object that had become luminous disappeared by flying away above the trees.

"When I started my car car again it started normally. It was impossible to me to know if the famous saucer had occupants or not. I arrived too early or too late and its disappearance above the forest withdrew it from my sight."

[Ref. lcn1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in the Dordogne in Trémolat on October 5, 1954 at 01:00 hours "the witness is on the step of the door was suddenly dazzled by three balls connected by a luminous cord. A ball was white, the other green and the third red superimposed but definitely separate. The three in a perfectly synchronized whole, rose, went down, then swung. Suddenly two new balls, green and very luminous appeared each the size of the full moon and advancing quickly."

Luc Chastan indicates as source "Lumières dans la Nuit".

I have no prosaic explanation for these phenomena of high strangeness. One or more extraterrestrial craft are possible.

However, there is no formal information on the presence or absence of noise coming from these "machines"; which still leaves some possibility that they were helicopters.

If we take into account other cases of October 5, 1954, or the beginning of October, in the Dordogne department, sometimes better documented, it seems that there was an event of some strangeness widely observed in this region. So far I have:
