UFOs in the daily Press:

Flying discs in Madagascar, 1954-1955:

This article was published in the daily newspaper Fandrosoam-Baovao, Madagascar, on January 21, 1955.


It is for the third time that it was heard of flying saucer visiting Madagascar. The first was seen above Fort-Dauphon in September 1954 at about 4 in the morning, the second above Tananarive towards the end of the year which has just passed, and the third above Majunga according to the communiqué received below:

One evening, between 07:30 P.M and 07:45 P.M., a round and luminous object was seen above the coast of the district of Majunga and Mitsinjo, and it is Mr. Quesnot, chief of the district of Mitsinjo himself which was one of the eyewitnesses.

It is a flat object, a very luminous disc, of green blue color and the size of the Moon which was seen above Majunga. It came from the North-East and slipped by at a vertiginous speed so that in very little time it was not visible any more. Few moments after, it was seen in Mitsinjo and had a luminosity so bright that all the areas which it flew over were illuminated. It took the Western direction, towards the sea, and disappeared. Mr Quesnot said to have observed the progession of this object during nearly eight seconds. It has been already a few days that this flying saucer appeared.

Note: obviously the third disk may be a meteor, nothing much is said on the first one. The second one in Tananarive is a classic case.
