IN THE SKY OF THE CHARENTE (?)
LA ROCHELLE. -- Whereas they were driving by car Saturday, between
Saujon and Marennes (the Charente-Maritime), two motorists, Misters
Christian Armant, company chairman in Rochefort-sur-Mer (Ch.-Maritime)
and Jean Driancourt, contractor in Surgères (Ch.-Maritime) are said
to have seen a flying saucer.
The apparatus, of spherical shape, and of an extremely shining white, came
from the north and moved in their direction. The object let appear a
turbulence on its higher part and a purplished trail, without emitting
the least noise, however.
The two motorists stopped and the object did the same. Its
luminosity was then unbearable. Then, it set out again in
direction of the North-West at a very high speed and disappeared.
