A U.F.O. in the Haute-Loire?

Brioude. -- The Brioude gendarmes recently revealed that an unidentified flying object had been seen by around twenty people on the evening of August 4 in Vieille-Brioude (Haute-Loire).

It was a motorist traveling on the national 102, near the village of Costecirgues (Haute-Loire) who had observed that evening, around 10 p.m., a motionless red-orange ball in a cloudless sky. He alerted the gendarmerie who opened an investigation.

About twenty precise and concordant testimonies were collected, which situates the appearance of the U.F.O. about four kilometers from the village of Costecirgues for two minutes.

A resident who had observed the phenomenon with binoculars said that "the object, cylindrical and brilliant, had disappeared like a flame that goes out."

According to other accounts, the U.F.O. had reportedly already been observed several times in the same place.
