October 5, 1954, Parigné-le-Pôlin, Sarthe:

Reference for this case: 5-Oct-54-Parigné-le-Pôlin.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In the 1950s, Guy Quincy, a French archivist interested in the question of unidentified flying objects, compiled a typewritten catalog of observations.

He noted in it an observation "around October 5" 1954 at an unknown hour in Parigné-le-Polin in the Sarthe department, of a "cloud cigar" and luminous dots.

He gave no source or details.


[Ref. gqy1:] GUY QUINCY:

about October 5 [, 1954]

[... other cases...]

? [=unknown hour]: Parigné-le-Polin (Sarthe):cloud cigar + luminous dots

[... other cases...]



The information is totally insufficient.

Quincy [gqy1], as he always did, did not give his source; and I could not find anything else on this case.

The idea of "cloud cigar" came from Aimé Michel; the pioneering ufologist meant by this an observation of a cigar-shaped craft, supposed to be large, often in a vertical position, surrounded by mists, and sometimes smaller craft.
