August 1954, Caussols, Alpes-Maritimes:

Reference for this case: Aug-54-Caussols.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


The ufology magazine Lumières Dans La Nuit #376, in 2004, reportedly indicated that in August 1954, in the Alpes-Maritimes, during a night, a group of Scouts was walking on the plateau of Caussols, when suddenly, a circular object of a diameter identical to that of the full Moon, of yellow-orange color, appeared above the ridge of the Colle de Rougiès.

The object was followed by a trail of the same color, of four times its size, and moved to the southeast, disappearing behind the Ecre pass after 5 seconds.


[Ref. lcn1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in the "Alpes Maritime" in Caussols in August 1954, "During one night a group of boy scouts is on a walk. They go on the plate of Caussols when suddenly above the peak of the Colle de Rougiès a circular object of a diameter identical to that of the full moon of yellow-orange color appears. The object was followed of a trail of the same length 4 times its size. The object moved towards the south east disappearing behind the pass of Ecre at the end of 5 seconds."

The source is indicated as "Lumières dans la Nuit issue 376".
