UFOs in the daily Press:

UFO reported in Sepmes, France, 1980:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper La Nouvelle République, France, on January 4, 1980.



Without necessarily believing in UFOs, a couple of retirees from Sepmes nevertheless watch the sky with curiosity. It must be said that on Wednesday evening, this couple saw, for about ten minutes, something that perfectly corresponds to the definition.

It was around 7:30 p.m. when Mr. Maurice Berthet, 66, a retired farmer from the town of Sepmes, went out into his yard, noticed a round flying object measuring at least 50 cm in diameter and located at a fairly distance large.

"That thing isn't normal," he said to himself, and he called his wife and an apprentice cook from Poitiers who was on vacation at his house, Mr. Maurice magnier, 17 and a half years old. "I saw it very well", says Mrs. Berthet, "it shimmered and moved away in the direction of Châtellerault". "It was bright orange in color and ended in a point shape below," adds Mr. Meunier, who observed it through binoculars.

However, Mr. Berthet warned the gendarmes of Descartes but the phenomenon had disappeared...

The gendarmes collected corroborating statements from witnesses who believed they had witnessed something extraordinary.

It is also disturbing to note that these statements are in perfect agreement with the observations of the police officers of Dammarie-les-Lys (Seine-et-Marne), during the weekend. Indeed, these observations were not yet published when the inhabitants of Sepmes made their own discovery.

Weird coincidence, isn't it?
