UFOs in the daily Press:

UFO or meteor or space junk in France, 1980:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Sud Ouest, France, on February 13, 1980.


The U.F.O. of 06:30p.m. is still talked about

INFORMATION we published Monday and in our Gironde issues of last Saturday and Tuesday on an unidentified bright object in the sky, have brought us numerous testimonials from readers. Just remember that on Friday at 06:30 p.m. exactly, many people saw "something" bright with green reflections moving at high velocity into the atmosphere and unlike anything seen before.

This UFO was sighted at the same time in the Bordeaux area, in the Entre-deux-Mers, in the Medoc, in Tarbes, Libourne and Moustey in the Landes. Two assumptions seem obsolete already. That of the balloon and that of the entry of a meteorite fragment in our sky. Remains that of a rocket fired from the Test Centre of the Landes in Biscarrosse, although there was little chance that it was green ... Or even something else. But what?
