Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In a general catalog of sighting reports of the Gironde written by the Bordeaux section of the C.F.R.U., published in the ufology magazine Ouranos in the fourth quarter of 1973, it is said that according to the Sud-Ouest newspaper for October 20, 1954, the following observation occurred:

Before that October 20, 1954, therefore, at 7 p.m., in Sainte-Croix-du-Mont, one Miss Bordenave was on a bicycle near the Malagar castle, and saw a green glow, then a disk "turning at a brisk pace" and heading west.

Miss Bordenave was impressed and made a fall.



Before Oct 20, 54 7 p.m. Ste-Croix-du-Mont BA V3 Axe 2

Witness: Miss Bordenave on a bicycle near Malagar Castle. Long green glow, then disc turning at a brisk pace and heading west. Miss Bordenave very impressed made a fall. Same phenomenon seen by Mr. Lufflade in St-Macaire.

S.O. Oct. 20, 54



BEFORE OCTOBER 20, 1954 7 p.m. Ste-Croix du Mont BA/V 3

Witness: Miss BORDENAVE on a bicycle near the Malagar castle. Long green glow then disc rotating at high speed and moving towards the west. Same phenomenon seen in St-MACAIRE.

Note: "BA" stands for "Low Altitude"; "V 3" means "observation of medium interest."



The information is totally insufficient for an evaluation even if a little founded.
