In a general catalog of observations of the Gironde written by the Bordeaux section of the CFRU, published in the ufology magazine Ouranos in the fourth quarter of 1973, it is said that according to the newspaper Sud-Ouest of September 23, 1954, the following observation took place:

Before September 23, 1954, therefore, at 7 o'clock in the morning, at Villenave d'Ornon, Mr. Petouig, on the road from Latresne to Floirac saw an object moving obliquely, in the direction of Villenave d'Ornon, that is, to the Southwest.



Before Sept. 23, 1954 7 a.m. Villenave d'Ornon V I Axis 2?

Witness: Mr. Petouig. On the road from Latresne to Floirac.

Object moving diagonally in the direction of Villenave d'Ornon (S.W.) - (cf. Talence 21/9/54).

Witness: M. PETOUIGT, on the road from M[]SNE to FLOIRAC. Object moving obliquely (in the direction of VILLENAVE D'ORNON).

Note: "V 1" stands for "bad observations", a report for which it is difficult to rule out a misinterpretation.



Possible meteor, totally insufficient information.
