The article below was published in the daily newspaper La Nouvelle R publique, France, on August 18, 1976.


BRIOUDE, 17. -- The gendarmes of Brioude have only just revealed that an unidentified flying object had been seen by about twenty people on the evening of August 4 in Vieille-Brioude (Haute-Loire).

It was a motorist driving near the village of Costecirgues (Haute-Loire) who observed that evening around 10 p.m. an orange-red ball, motionless in a cloudless sky. He alerted the gendarmerie who opened an investigation.

About twenty precise and concordant testimonies were collected, which locate the appearance of the U.F.O. about four kilometers from the village of Costecirgues for two minutes. A resident who had observed the phenomenon with binoculars had specified that "the cylindrical and brilliant object had disappeared like a flame which extinguished."

According to other accounts, the U.F.O. had already been observed several times in the same place.
