UFOs in the Béarn, France, 1978:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Nice Matin, France, on July 19, 1978.

Battle of UFOS in the Béarn

Specialists from the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales of Toulouse went to the Hautes-Pyrénées to verify the statements made by several young people who observed during the night of July 9 to 10, and for more than three hours, twenty UFOs which produced a veritable ballet in the Béarn sky, between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m.

Pierre Berriau, 17, Alain Dieuregard, 16, Armelle Sauneuf, 16, Jean-Marie Guéry, 16, all three students, first observed a small object giving off a blinding yellow light, which they saw at ground level. Then they saw an object about ten meters in diameter, which presented several light sources of different colors, which tipped on itself and then presented the shape of a saucer and moved away towards the Pyrénées.

Within the next two hours, the four young people witnessed a crossover of objects of various shapes, sizes and colors, appearing to be engaged in an aerial battle, many of them projecting dazzling and multicolored flashes.

The young people did not report the show they had witnessed to the gendarmerie until a few days later, when they learned that other witnesses had seen a similar spectacle near Pau.

The C.N.E.S. of Toulouse declared the observations of the young people from Béarn interesting, as much by the agreement as by the seriousness of the observers.
