In 1966, the French ufologist Jacques Vallée published a list of UFO sightings, in which it was noted that there was an observation in September 1954, at 03:30 p.m., in Pontoise.

In the 2000s, referring to Jacques Vallée, a US website said it was, at 03:00 p.m., a 6-meter object that hovered for 10 minutes, seen by four witnesses.
