UFOs in the daily Press:

1954 alleged flying saucer photo, Marseilles, France:

This article was published in the daily newspaper Le Provenšal, France, page 5, on June 8, 1954.

A flying saucer above Marseilles?

They are definitely of topicality, these famous "saucers" reported a little everywhere without the mystery which surrounds them being dissipated. This time, here is a photographic document which relates to them. It was communicated to us by one of our readers, Mr. J. Ates, and it was carried out by a amateur photographer wishing to preserve anonymity. This photo bears at the back the following information:

"Flying craft above Marseilles, May 26, 1954. hour: 06:30 p.m., time of observation: three minutes. Slightly covered weather. Enormous disc, coming from the East and speeding in direction of the West, going at an average speed, very sudden acceleration and complete disappearance at the horizon in some split seconds... "

This would be the first photograph of a saucer, if the fact could one day be confirmed scientifically.

Case recorded in my France 1954 catalog.
