UFOs in the daily Press:

Meteor UFO in France, 1978:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Le Dauphiné Libéré, France, on February 16, 1978.



A mysterious craft in the Bressan sky

Bourg. -- Is it a comet, a UFO? or quite simply an exceptionally large satellite which crossed the sky of Bresse, yesterday morning, around 6:55 a.m.?

Testimonies from Bourg and the Suran Valley reached us yesterday, overlapping and confirming the presence in the sky of a large red-orange ball, heading from South to North, leaving a trail in its wake of fire before disappearing on the horizon.

The sky was clear and day was breaking.

"The craft was quite massive, the size of a small moon", declared an inhabitant of Armane, Mr. Barbier.

"I saw it glide through the sky, leaving a sparkling tail trailing behind it. This phenomenon lasted nearly two minutes."
