Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In his 1958 book on the French wave of 1954, Aimé Michel indicated that on September 27, 1954, around 10:45 p.m., there was an observation on the Paris region, with quite a few witnesses including a policeman from Bagnolet.

An object has passed at the zenith, the policeman claiming to have discerned very clearly a flat disc, of greenish white color, surrounded by an orange halo.


[Ref. aml1:] AIME MICHEL:

According to the French ufologist Aimé Michel, on the night of September 27, at about 10:45 p.m., an observation occurred in the area of Paris, with quite a number of witnesses including a gendarme [police officer] of Bagnolet. An object went by at the zenith, the gendarme claimed that he has been able to clearly distinguish a flat disc, greenish-white, surrounded by an orange halation.

Aimé Michel notes that this was the last observation for that day in the Paris area.
