A small "saucer" lands in the Côte-d'Or

Dijon. -- A resident of Poncey-sur-l'Ignon (the Côte-d'Or), Thérèse Fourneret, aged 23, came to declare to the gendarmerie of Saint-Seine-l'Abbaye that Monday night, around 7:30 p.m., she saw land in a meadow near the asbestos factory where she lives, a sort of spherical machine of orange color and it seemed to be "about the size of a large stove." Panicked, she took refuge with neighbors who, also frightened, remained caulked for nearly an hour before daring to show their face at the window. When they did, the craft had disappeared.

The police went to the location and found at the place indicated by Ms. Fourneret as that of the landing, clear marks on 1.50 meters ray; the grass of the meadow had been ripped in places and clods thrown to a distance of about 4 meters. Photographs were taken by the police.
