The article below was published in the daily newspaper Nord-Matin, Nord - Pas-de-Calais, France, page 10, on October 10, 1954.



Mulhouse. -- Mr. René Ott, 35, from Jettingen, employed at the S.N.C.F., said that he had seen in a field an aluminum-colored hemispherical saucer, lit inside, which was about three meters from the road and one meter from the ground.

Frightened, Mr. Ott fled. He had, he said, time to notice that a door opened in the craft. It moved above him over a distance of 800 meters before disappearing.

Le Mans. -- Mr. Alexandre Tremblaix, milk collector, said that the truck he was driving had suddenly stopped, for an unknown reason, on a small provincial road near St. Jean d'Asse and that his headlights went off. He got out of his cabin, and saw passing over him a flying red and blue cigar, about one meter long. The craft disappeared on the horizon a few minutes later, the engine of the truck started to run again and the headlights turned on again.

Cherbourg. -- Around 9 p.m., a resident of Octeville (Manche), Mr. Maurice Grestey, designer at the Arsenal, and several of his neighbors saw in the sky, at a high altitude asset, a luminous sphere which, after having stopped above the city, disappeared towards the South.
