September 25, 1954, Mansle, Charente:

Reference for this case: 25-Sep-54-Mansle.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In the national newspaper Paris-Presse for September 28, 1954, it was told on page 1, among other observations, that in Mansles in the Charente department, "Mr. Martin saw the other night about 2 o'clock in the morning a luminous disk moving from south to north."

In his 1958 book on the "Mysterious Celestial Objects", Aimé Michel noted, without giving a source, that on September 25, 1954, a single observation had been reported in Mansle, Charente, and he commented that it was "of very little interest."




"Saucers" and
"cigars" in Tulle
and in the S.-W.

More saucers and flying cigars: In Lencouacq (Landes), Mrs. Vignolles stated she saw a flying cigar which landed gently in a meadow behind the presbytery. In Mansles (Charente), Mr. Martin saw the other night at around 2 a.m. a luminous disc heading from south to north. Several inhabitants of Villebois-Lavalette (Charente) also saw a craft which, after being immobilized for a few moments, quickly moved away.

Finally a P.T.T. employee of Bourges, Mr. Robert Patient, revealed that on the road to Vasselay he had been followed for several hundred meters by "a hemispherical and shining object" which had landed in a field and immediately left.
