The regional newspaper L'Est Républicain for January 29, 1954, reported on page 2 about a weird phenomenon seen in Liffol-Le-Grand.

They added that there was also a sighting by a Mr. Guyot, in Saint-Dizier, had also witnessed "enigmatic celestial manifestations."

What the newspaper did not know is that at 04:45 in the morning that day, many inhabitants of various places in the Côte-d'Or and the Vosges departments, essentially, saw the phenomenon, a meteor.



The flying saucers gave the dawn serenade to the morning cyclist

Mr. Louis Jacquot, resident of Liffol-Le-Grand, left to his work, as driver of machines, around five hours of the morning. His residence being quite far away, he hit the road by bicycle. It was 05:15 approximately, when he was surprised by a gleam which caused a violent commotion in him. His ears buzzed and his eyes were dazzled. It had to get down of his bicycle.

"I had the impression that the sky opened in two", he specifies. That lasted a few seconds. Not knowing to what to allot this phenomenon, he first believe in the explosion of plane rockets or the movements of powerful projectors. As soon as he arrived at work, he told this adventure to his comrades who gave no particular attention. He deeply regretted to have been to only one to note these strange facts. But one was to learn that Mr. Guyot, in Saint-Dizier, had also been witness of enigmatic celestial demonstrations.
