SOMETHING VERY NEW
Five saucers come out of a flying cigar
IN THE SKY OF VERNON
A young engineer from Vernon saw five flying saucers. But these saucers - and this is the original side of the case - came out of a large luminous machine which had the shape of a cigar.
The five saucers evolved during a few moments in the sky of Vernon. One of them approached the ground sufficiently close so that the engineer could distinguish the details of the machine. It was red in the center and black on the edges.
Then cigars and saucers disappeared at a vertiginous speed in the direction of the North.
The chronicle of the flying saucers gets richer of a new type: the relay-cigar.
