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 15, 1980.


Again and again the U.F.O. of 06:30 p.m.

THE MYSTERIOUS ROCKET which crossed the sky of the Southwest last Friday at 06:30 p.m., continues to bring numerous testimonies. For example, the one by the little schoolboy of Merignac who saw "a bright green object" when leaving Burck college. He states that very bright white arrows appeared to come out of this object.

At four kilometers from R ole on the Moriz s road, a witness saw a blue-green fireball, which was heading at full speed toward Sainte-Foy-la-Grande. He also thought of the hypothesis that it was a meteorite falling into the atmosphere, however, it seems implausible.

Also, let's add that a motorist, Pierre Artugo, customs officer, residing in Cierp (Lot-et-Garonne), who was driving his car on National Road 137 spotted Wednesday morning around 7:10 a.m., at the southern end of Alturas (Gironde), about a hundred feet high, a UFO five to six meters in diameter; which stopped briefly before heading at breakneck speed to Saintes. Mr. Artugo made to the police a detailed version of the event he had witnessed.

In addition, we received a letter from the Popular Astronomy Society of Limoges wishing to gather the various observations of the UFO. For this, they invite every people who observed, at the indicated time, a phenomenon similar to this to share their information. 10 Avenue of the Revolution, 87000 Limoges.
