Flying saucers under the sky of La Loupe (?)

Sunday morning, four members of a family of La Loupe, who awaited a train on the station platform, saw distinctly in the sky, a white disc which, seeming to rotate on itself, disappeared quickly in the clouds.

In addition, in Vaupillon, a mysterious apparatus which changed colors would have been noticed as it also moved under the vault of heaven.

Lastly, in Saint-Eliph, two people noted numerous phenomena like we told it besides in our chronicle "a disc..."

The multiplication of the saucers and the cigars under the sky of France, and also of Eure-et-Loir, always attracts "crescendo" the curiosity of the public. Of course, the area of La Loupe could not remain "out of the race" for a long time. It is all the same, to some extent, a question of prestige.

Let us be thus satisfied: we have it finally, our saucer... almost!

Last week, indeed, in a meadow located at the edge of Saint-Eliph, a female resident of this locality saw, around 9 hours of the evening, a white form - not that "which goes without noise and tightens the arms" of the poet. The onlooker, who certainly is in good faith, saw only rather vaguely the object which seemed immobilized in space at her height and under which she distinguished two kinds of black appendices. The woman seized by fright returned very quickly to her home. Beforehand, she had seen multicolored gleams in the sky.

Moreover another inhabitant of Saint-Eliph also noticed, one evening, a certain phenomenon: a bluish gleam which passed like a fireball in front of his window.

As one can see, the mystery remains whole...

28/05 - 1954 early October - La Loupe

A local newspaper reports: "Sunday morning, four members of a La Loupe family, who were waiting for a train on the station platform, distinctly saw in the sky, a white disc which, seeming to turn on itself, quickly disappeared in the clouds.

Also, in Vaupillon, a mysterious craft which changed colors was noticed while it was also moving under the celestial vault.

Finally, in Saint-Eliph, two people observed numerous phenomena, as we relate elsewhere in our chronicle "a disc..."

The proliferation of saucers and cigars under the sky of France, and also of Eure-et-Loir, always attracts a "crescendo" of public curiosity. Of course, the region of La Loupe could not remain "out of the race" for very long. It is all the same, in a way, a question of prestige. So let's be satisfied: we also have our saucer... well, almost!"

28/12 - 1954 the ? October - Saint Eliph

"Last week, in a meadow on the edge of Saint-Eliph, a woman resident of this locality saw, around 9 o'clock in the evening, a white form - not the one "which walks silently and stretches out her arms" to the poet. The witness, who is certainly in good faith, only vaguely saw for a short while the object which seemed immobilized in space at her height and under which she distinguished two kinds of black appendages. Speechless with shock, she quickly returned home. Previously, she had seen in the sky multicolored lights. Moreover, another resident of Saint-Eliph noticed also, one evening, a certain phenomenon: a bluish gleam which passed like a bolide in front of his window.
