In Austria the saucers"
have "panache"

Thousands of Austrians have also seen mysterious craft flying over their country.

The meteorological station od Vienna affirms, about a "saucer" which appeared above the capital, that it is not a weathre balloon, but an "object terminated by a plume of flames", flying at an extraordinary speed, from West to East, without making the slightest noise. Above Graz, it would have been a green-blue ball, terminated at the rear by a point, and which flew at an altitude of 3,000 to 4,000 meters. The same craft was seen by numerous witnesses over the towns of Judenburg and Wildon, in Styria.

Finally, in Burgenland, the flying saucers, according to spectators, had the shape of a red ball this time, and which flew horizontally and silently in the direction of Hungary.
