Flying saucer in the sky of Eyrargues

Eight girls, coed in a boarding school in Eyrargues (Rhone delta) claim to have seen, Tuesday evening between 11:30 p.m. and midnight, from the window of their room, an unidentified flying object (UFO). According to their statements, the object, which had the shape of a half-sphere, approached down to 20 meters of the ground before setting out again. Last week, residents of Eyrargues had already claimed to have seen a UFO passing.

A U.F.O. in the sky of Eyragues

In the night of 1st to 2nd of February between 11:30 p.m. and midnight, in the Beauchamp district in Eyragues [Eyrargues], eight girls aged from 14 to 16 saw what might be a UFO. This phenomenon can be compared to a half-sphere of a diameter from 50 to 70 cms, with a very luminous and coloured circumference. This UFO was at approximately 20 meters of altitude above a building. Technicians of the Société vauclusienne of Study of space phenomena of Pontert went on the location yesterday accompanied by the gendarmes of Chateaurenard. Various samples were taken on branches which seemed to have been hit, these samples will be analyzed in Toulon and one will perhaps know something more about this phenomenon then.
