The pioneering ufologist Aimé Michel, in his 1958 book "Flyig Saucers and the Straight Line Mystery" on the 1954 wave of saucers over France, indicated that on October 7 in Puymoyen "a banal observation" took place, about which he says nothing.

He indicated that his source was an article in the newspaper Sud-Ouest for October 14, 1954.

This ufology bulletin published a map supposed to show alignements of cases of October 7, 1954, and it included a case in Puymoyen:


The author indicates that on October 7, 1954, luminous discs, landing or not landing, were reported among other places in Puymoyen.

The author says that the 28 places of observations [The author indicates 9 of them] formed all spots that were aligned "along a line with a precision of one millimetre." He further adds that these observations spread on "straight lines, which while crossing, drew curious geometrical star figures", and that "alignments seemed to begin around one hour in the morning, covering our areas of a tight network of investigations of unknown origin."
