Flying saucers in Normandy?

Mysterious craft were seen by several people in the sky of Vernon (Eure).

The son of a city merchant says he saw distinctly, around one o'clock in the morning, above the Seine, an elongated object, red in color, resembling a large cigar. According to him, this object stood motionless at a fairly low height. From this curious machine, detached a flying saucer that the witness describes with precision:

"It was shaped like an oval disc, dark in color, surmounted by a red dome with a very bright halo surrounded by flames."

These observations were confirmed by several people.
