October 11, 1954, Toulouse, Haute-Garonne:

Reference for this case: 11-Oct-54-Toulouse.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In the 2010's a German-speaking Web database of UFO sighting reports noted an observation in "Casselard" in France, on October 11, 1954, at 10:45 p.m., of the "Nocturnal Light(s)" type.


[Ref. ubk1:] "UFO-DATENBANK":

Case Nr. New case Nr. Investigator Date of observation Zip Place of observation Country of observation Hour of observation Classification Comments Identification
19541011 11.10.1954 Casselard France 10:45 p.m. NL



[ubk1] as usual hardly gives any information, and this case poses this problem: there is no town or commune or place named "Casselard" in France as far as I know.

It turned out that [ubk1] sometimes truncates place names. I found that there is a "Casselardit" in France, it is a district of Toulouse. I thought that this could be a double entry for the case of October 13, 1954 in Toulouse, which had taken place in the district of "Bourrasole", sometimes "combined" with the district of Casselardit to make a "Bourrasole-Casselardit" district. But as neither the date nor the time nor the type of observation correspond, I think that there may have been a case in the Casselardit district in Toulouse on October 11, 1954 at 10:45 p,m,, of the "Nocturnal light(s)" type.

It goes without saying that in this case, as it sands, no evaluation is possible to me, except for: "totally insufficient information."
