The 1954 French flap:

The index page for the 1954 French flap section of this website is here.

October 7, 1954, Perrigny-sur-l'Ognon ou Perrigny-lès-Dijon, Côte-d'Or:

Reference number for this case: 7-Oct-54-Perrigny-sur-l'Ognon. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In their 1979 book "La Grande Peur Martienne" ("The Great Martian Scare"), the two "skeptical" ufologists Gérard Barthel and Jacques Brucker indicated that there was an observation on October 7, 1954, around 2 o'clock in "Perrigny (21)", whose witness was "not found after investigation."

He had reported according to them a "green orange luminous phenomenon."



The two authors note this case of October 7, 1954:

"Perrigny - 21 - about 2 o'clock: witness untraceable after investigation. Green orangeish luminous phenomenon.


Totally insufficient information.

Obviously Barthel and Brucker made the case more succinct than it must have been, as they do not even tell us what their source was for the case.

And what about the witness name? There must have been one, otherwise, how would he or she have been searched in vain?

Barthel and Brucker indicated a department by number 21. This is the Côte-d'Or department. But there is no Perrigny in Côte-d'Or, there is a Perrigny in the Yonne and another in the Jura. In Côte-d'Or, there is Perrigny-sur-l'Ognon, and Perrigny-lès-Dijon.

This case could even be the misplaced and misdated case of Marsannay of December 8, 1954....
