UFOs in the daily Press:

UFOs in the Moulières forest, France, 1976:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper La Nouvelle République, France, on September 9, 1976.


(A witness managed to take 22 photos)

Poitiers. -- Parodying Aragon, one could say: "There was the one who believed in the U.F.Os., there was the one who didn't."

For the past few weeks, Jean-François Mazelier, 20, a second-year medical student in Poitiers, and living at 20, rue de Bellevue in Jaunay-Clan, is troubled. Twice he saw in the forest of Moulière (Vienne) at a place called "Le Peu", commune of Saint-Georges-les-Baillargeaux, strange things.

"Saturday, July 31, I was going by car from Jaunay to Chauvigny. At 11:30 p.m., the engine of my car went out along with the headlights and the radio. I saw in the sky a huge cigar of a hundred meters long, 30 meters high and moving in an intelligent manner. It went from red to yellow then to bright white and finally to green and disappeared. I had no camera. The vision lasted about 4 minutes."

On Saturday August 21, still at 11:30 p.m., at the same place, Jean-François Mazelier saw the same show. "This time the object was of lower volume, about 20 to 30 meters long. I saw the thing between two trees. This time I was able to take pictures, I took about thirty, 22 are successful. The vision having lasted 7 minutes. For my part, I do not draw any conclusions, I hand over these documents to the examination of the competent authorities. I do not know precisely what I saw, but what I saw is strange. The first time there was a storm, but the second time, the sky was starry and very clear. I must specify, however, that a high voltage line passes near the places of my observations. Is it a sufficient explanation?"

Jean-François Mazelier allowed us to reproduce one of his photos (rights reserved), he keeps the others for scientific reviews.
