September 6, 1954, Mériel, Val-d'oise:

Reference for this case: 6-Sep-54-Mériel.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In the 2000s, an American UFO sightings website indicated that on September 6, 1954, before dawn, in Meriel, an unidentified object was sighted by two witnesses, but it had an appearance and a behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation.

The website indicates that this comes from the computer catalog of Jacques Vallée and US ufology group.


[Ref. uda1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 6 September 1954, "Pre-dawn", in Meriel, France, "An unidentified object was sighted, but with appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation. One object was observed by two witnesses."

The sources are said to be "National Investigations Committee Aerial Phenomena, NICAP investigation files" and "Vallee, Jacques, Computerized Catalog (N = 3073)".
