[Ref. emt1:] ERIC MAILLOT:

Eric Maillot wrote in an article about misinterpretations having the Moon as cause:

[...]

The cases of [...] Meyrieux 10/03/1954, [...] etc... show that the social origin, the level of study or the profession of a witness are in no case a guarantee of objectivity and of not being mistaken. Sometimes farmers are fooled by the Moon just like pilots are fooled by Venus, a weather balloon probes or an atmospheric re-entry. No man is infallible and the arguments of authority, aiming at making believe the opposite, always hide the weakness of the argumentation.

[...]

Explanations:

Map.

Insufficient information, the Moon.

I guess the location is Meyrieux-Trouet in the department of Savoie.

Another possibility is that Eric Maillot misspelled the name of the place, which would actually be Heyrieux where a sighting that same day was reported.

Keywords:

(These keywords are only to help queries and are not implying anything.)

Meyrieux-Trouet, Savoie, the Moon
