October 14, 1954, Grasse, Alpes-Maritimes:

Reference for this case: 14-Oct-54-Grasse.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


The regional newspaper Nice Matin for October 16, 1954, mentioned that "a machine almost similar, the same without doubt" that the one seen in Biot had been seen almost at the same hour above Grasse, among other places.

Jimmy Guieu told in his 1956 book that "the flying saucer that landed near Biot on October 14, 1954 at 06:15 p.m. was seen crisscrossing the sky by a crowd of people, especially in Grasse."



and here are the "flying saucers" in the sky of Midi!...


Almost at the same time, a similar machine (the same one undoubtedly) was seen above Grasse, Saint Raphael, Opio, Gourdon, Bar-sur-Loup and Roquebrune-Cape-Martin.


[Ref. jgu1:] JIMMY GUIEU:

The author indicates that the flying saucer that landed close to Biot on October 14, 1954 at 18:15 was seen furrowing the skies by a crowd of people, in Grasse, among other places.

[Ref. lcn1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates in his database that in the Alpes Maritime at Grasse on October 14, 1954, there was an "Observation of an object little after 06:15 p.m.".

The source is noted "Black-out sur les Soucoupes volantes by Guieu Jimmy ** Fleuve Noir 1956 omnium 1977".

[Ref. uda1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 14 October 1954 at 19:00 in Grasse, France, "An unidentified object was sighted, but with appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation. One object was observed by several witnesses."

The website indicates that the sources are "Guieu, Jimmy, Flying Saucers Come from Another World, Citadel, New York, 1956; Vallee, Jacques, Computerized Catalog (N = 3073)."
