A 'gigantic UFO' in Honfleur

A "UFO" "gigantic and swinging in the sky" was seen by around ten young people, during the night from Tuesday to Wednesday, in Honfleur (Calvados).

The young people, whose testimony was recorded at the Honfleur police station, were sitting on the edge of the old pond when the strange object appeared to them. "The white, oval craft was moving through the sky with a light inside," said one of the witnesses. "Suddenly, it ignited and we saw a sort of gateway descending towards the earth while the object disappeared towards the South, in the nearby countryside."

Several other people also witnessed the phenomenon without making themselves known to the police.
