Saucers, still saucers, always saucers...

At the Mas de Brury, near Perpignan, several grape pickers said they saw in the sky a bright object in the shape of a saucer. After having moved vertically leaving a white trail, the craft disappeared in the clouds.

Mr. Raymond Deloire, 20, agricultural worker in Langeron (Nièvre), who was riding a bicycle on the road to St-Pierre-le-Moutiers, saw in the sky a mysterious object of semi-spherical shape emitting a bright orange glow at the front, flames gushed from the rear. The craft moved without noise with great speed towards the North-East.

Two residents of the commune of Foussignargues, near Bessèges, said they saw in a meadow, near their house, in the night from Sunday to Monday, a luminous apparatus.

Numerous people saw in the sky, at very high altitude, a mysterious craft in the shape of a long and shiny balloon. The craft came from the South and headed to the North West.
