UFOs in the daily Press:

Flying saucers in the 1954 French Press:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Dernières Nouvelles du Haut-Rhin, France, on November 5, 1954.

The flying cigar of the day

Thursday morning at 6:15, when he was near the Saint-Joseph station, a young man saw a luminous object that moved high in the sky above the Vosges. He reported it immediately to the member of the staff at the counter of the station, Mr. A. M., and the two men were able to look at the strange apparition for a few minutes. The object was about 1 m long, trailing a long tail and radiated a white-orange light. Many people witnessed the event. Three minutes later, the "flying cigar" disappeared over the Vosges.

At about 07:40 p.m., again from the St. Joseph station, a new shiny object was seen, much bigger than a shooting star and moving from the hospital to the Vosges, followed by a blue-red streak.
