In Brest
a high ranking officer
engineer in the navy
has seen a "very luminous disc"
in the sky

BREST, 25 (from our newsroom). -- In the area of Brest, a testimony worthy of faith on the flying saucers was recorded.

It comes indeed from a senior officer, engineer of the Navy, which makes a point of remaining anonymous.

Thursday, at about 8 o'clock, this engineer saw in the sky above the hills, between Plougastel and Landernau, a "very luminous" disc, which seemed to hover at 8.000 meters of altitude.

Broad of one meter, to the naked eye, this disc appeared to be a biconvex lens.

The wife of the officer observed, herself, the luminous point, while her husband was going to seek binoculars. But, when the engineer came back, a cloud was hiding the disc.

"It was certainly not an atmospheric phenomenon, the engineer told us. And my scientific knowledge does not enable me to explain such a vision logically."
