Beg. October 1954, Parthenay, Deux-Sèvres:

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


In the 1990s, ufologist and author Jean Sider indicated that according to an article in the newspaper Le Courrier de l'Ouest, of Angers, for October 7, 1954, at the beginning of October 1954 in the area of Parthenay at an unspecified time, a truck driver and his traveling companion saw the landing of a luminous disc on a road; which departed on their approach.

In order to avoid questions, the witnesses had only told their story to a few close friends.


[Ref. jsr1:] JEAN SIDER:

French ufologist and author Jean Sider learned in an article from the newspaper Le Courrier de l'Ouest, of Angers, of October 7, 1954, that at the beginning of that week in the sector of Parthenay at an unknown time, a lorry driver and his companion saw the landing of a luminous disc on a road, which left at their approach.

In order to avoid questions, the witnesses had entrusted their story only to some close people.

La source est indiquée comme "Lumières dans la Nuit".

[Ref. uda1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that in October 1954 in Parthenay, France, "Glowing disc landed on road, vanished as truck approached."

And: "An object was sighted that had an appearance and performance beyond the capability of known earthly aircraft. One disc was observed by two witnesses on a road for over one minute."

The sources are indicated as "Lumieres dans la Nuit, Lumieres dans la Nuit" and "Hatch, Larry, *U* computer database, Author, Redwood City, 2002".



This is an "unidentified to me; but the report is so meager that I would say nothing more.
