UFOs in the daily Press:

The flying disc over Paris on September 27, 1954:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Le Parisien, Paris, France, on September 28, 1954.


'Several of our readers took the trouble to call us last night, around 10 o'clock, to tell us about an observation that had moved them deeply.'

It was Mr. Ilias, 18 rue David-d'Angers, who first informed us:

"I was making a little tour with my wife," he told us, when we saw a luminous craft, a bit like a neon-lit disk passing over the Buttes-Chaumont. It stopped for five or six seconds, then it set off again at full speed in the east-north direction."

Moments later, Mr. Thibaut, who lives at 78, avenue Secrétan, confirmed to us the words of Mr. Ilias:

- Is it a flying saucer? I would not swear it, but it was a luminous disc which, after a short stop above the Buttes-Chaumont, sped towards Montmartre.

'And, in Montmartre, Mr. Georges Chapty, who lives at 36, rue Jouffroy, saw, too, luminous "craft".'

'- I saw it arrive from the east of Paris, it stopped a short moment above the Sacré-Coeur, then it left again at full speed without changing course - that is to say in the direction north northwest.'

'It should be noted that our volunteer correspondents are careful not to say that they saw a flying saucer. But they agree on the direction, the speed and the luminosity of the mysterious craft.'
