UFOs in the daily Press:

Flying saucer occupants, 1954:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Le Nouveau Nord Maritime, France, page 3, le 29 septembre 1954.



Lisbon, 28. -- Visitors from another world landed on September 24 at ten in the morning, at a point in the Gardunha mountains, on the Spanish-Portuguese border: that's what a Portuguese peasant who, along with three of his other comrades, worked in this region, reported to the newspaper "Diario de Lisboa".

"A sphere appeared in the sky to the east, declares the witness. It flew at a dizzying speed and launched multicolored lightnings. It landed silently 200 meters from us and two silhouettes about 2 m. 50 tall came down. They looked like aluminum men. These visitors first picked herbs and gathered stones which they put in a box of a blinding glare. Then, perceiving us, they came to us and emitted a few sounds.

"In front of our incomprehension, they invited us by gestures to go up in their craft, on our refusal, they went up in the machine which took off vertically and disappeared towards the South as fast as it had arrived".

The witness clarified that only the "poles" of the sphere were rotating and that the equatorial part was transparent and allowed moving shadows to be seen inside.

In the Yonne, two women
declare having seen another
craft posed on a field

Auxerre, 28. -- Mrs. widow Joffroy and Miss Fin, living in diges (Yonne) affirm to have seen Friday morning, at 9 a.m., a "flying saucer." They add that it landed on a field.

Its "pilot" was inspecting the "apparatus" with the top door open.

The saucer went, they still say, a few minutes later, leaving two visible marks on the soggy earth of the field.
