July 1954, Calais, Pas-de-Calais:

Reference for this case: Jul-54-Calais.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


An anonymous story was posted on the website Ciel et Espace radio (Sky and Space Radio) in 2007. The author reported to have seen a UFO in 1947, then one evening in Calais in July 1954 or 1956 during "the great invasion... landings every day".

He says he looked up and saw the carousel of fifteen "stars" moving with velocity with curved paths that crisscrossed like insects (spiders) that live on the surface of the water and swirl without stop.

He rightly excludes satellites (the 1st was in orbit in 1957) and flying glow worms.

He says that there was only one mention of this in the local newspaper, reporting that a man had witnessed this thing as he came out of a movie theater, that no one had used binoculars, and that he has never witnessed such a phenomenon again.

He had shown this to one of his neighbors, who had given him his peremptory explanation: "yes the weather's gonna change".

some aspects of the ufo phenomenon

1 the low number of witness in 1947 i look through the attic window of my bedroom and the sight gives on the distance on the deserted grounds at some km.IT IS THEN THAT I SEE A LARGE PARACHUTE GO DOWN OF A QUITE REGULAR SHAPE WHICH DISAPPEARS BEHIND SOME TREES.I simply want to demonstrate that I was probably the only witness of that thing not ordinary for the times

2 the lack of curiosity from the common man: calais July 1954 or56 in 1954 the great invasion.....landings everyday.One night I look up and i not the maneuvers of about fifteen "stars" that moved fast with curved trajectories that crossed each other like insectss( waterspiders) that live on the surface of the water and whirl around non stop.At the time there were no satellites and anyway they move in straight line.It wasn't glow worms either.Anyway let's imagine craft that demonstrate their capacities saying "try to do the same if you can", this for hours during 2 or three weeks.Only one mention in the local newspaper a man witnessed the thing as he came out of the movies.NOBODY HAD USED BINOCULARS.I never saw such a phenomenon ahain.One of my neighbor to whom i showed the thing wasn't astonished and gave me his final explanation ""yeah times [or "the weather"] gonna change".

MY AUNT a brave woman one evening while knitting leiseulrely looks up at the window and in the portion of the sky the neighborhood lets her see she sees a "cigar"with lit windows that raises vertically ???? Ufos aren't her cup of tea



Fascinating. Unexplained to me, but of unckeckable credibility.
