End of September or beginning of October, 1954, Ussel, Corrèze:

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


The newspaper L'Auvergnat de Paris for October 16, 1954, reported on page 4 that a resident of Murat had seen, in the region of Ussel, "a mysterious craft crossing the sky". The newspaper wondered whether it was a flying saucer or a meteor.




A Murat resident saw, in the region of Ussel, a mysterious craft crossing the sky... a flying saucer? Meteor?

Last week the sky of Murat was the scene of a veritable cavalcade of jet planes, circulating in all directions.



Totally insufficient information.

The jet planes in the sky of Murat mentionned in [aup1] were NATO joint maneuvers called "Opération Etoile Filante", started at the end of Septembre 1954, and cause of some misinterpretations.

Ussel, Corrèze, anonymous, craft, saucer, meteor
