Admired in various places, not without emotion
The ballet of the "Flying Saucers"
continues in the sky of Lorraine
In the Moselle, mysterious machines attracted the glances.
Last Friday, at abour 11 p.m., several residents of Bassing, among whose MM. Romain and Renfort,
saw, above the area of Vergaville and Bidestroff, a luminous object of 2 to 3 meters length,
showinf the shape of an ellipse and which moved at very variable speeds. The witnesses heard
a gentle humming of engine. Sometimes the alleged flying saucer slowed its travel down to the
of being motionless, then it went up with a vertiginous pace. The same phenomenon was observed
Saturday, between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m., by Mr. Remy Rousselle, of Blanche-Eglise, and Mr. Baumann,
A large green disc
In its turn, the sky of the area of Dieuze saw a flying
saucer evolving. It was Sunday evening. It was exactly 08:17 p.m. when Mr. Pierre Laplace, aged 19, electrician with the Kuhlmann
Establishments, in Dieuze, and residing in Vergaville, saw in the sky a large luminous disc
of green color, at the height of the wood of Brides, between the villages of Vergaville
and Kerprich. The bulky point, he said, was at approximately 3000 meters. Mr. Laplace,
having stopped, followed the evolutions of the machine. When he saw it for the first time,
it was motionless. Suddenly, specifies the electrician, the machine launched sparkling lights
of the color of ultraviolet rays; it then moved at a speed such as nowadays' jet airplanes,
seeming, close to him, to hover.
The flying saucer, because that's what it is, said the observer, as well as the
passers by that Mr. Laplace had stopped and who are positive, stopped at the height of
the Paquis of Guéblin; it crossed the distance between Guéblin and Kerprich three times,
always at a tremendous pace, but extraordinarily, always stopping in the same place.
Suddenly, the machine launched new gleams, seeming to locate the ground, and went
down until approximately 600 meters from ground. Then, making a U turn, very slowly,
it went down more and more and finally, seemed to land at the level of the Côte-des-Vignes,
located at a little distance of Bedestroff. About thirty people, cyclists, pedestrians, motorists,
followed, extremely interested, the evolutions of the saucer. Mr. Laplace and some other
spectators having wanted to on motorbike to the spot of landing, the saucer took height
again and disappeared behind a curtain of trees. It was 9 p.m. at this time. The inhabitants
of the area who saw the saucer are M.M. Lucien Victorien, Primon, building contractor in
Vergaville; Mr Kinowsky, workman in shoes, Claude Renfort of Bassing, as well as the manager
of the Ecos of Vergaville and his family.
Amazingly, at 11:45 p.m., several unknown people stationing on the road as well as
Mr. Domant, a garage workman residing in Guéblin, and Mr. Glicher, of the same village,
looked with attention, but without daring to approach it, a disc of green color which was
in the fields, at a small distance of the road. Let us finally report that Saturday,
between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m., Mr Rothfuss of Dieuze, had also seen, circulating in the airs,
between the farm of Boule and Maizières-les-Vic, a luminous disc whose details
correspond exactly to those given by Mr. Laplace.
