Flying saucers
in the sky of Vernon?

Evreux, 24. -- Mysterious craft were seen by several people in the sky of Vernon (Eure) during the night from Sunday to Monday.

The son of a city merchant claims to have seen distinctly, around one o'clock in the morning, above the Seine, an elongated object, red in color, resembling a large cigar.

According to him, this object stood motionless at a fairly low height. There was total silence.

From this curious craft, came out a flying saucer that the witness describes with precision:

"It was shaped like an oval disc, dark in color, surmounted by a red dome with a very bright halo surrounded by flames".

The flying saucer detached itself from the cigar, fell vertically, then seemed to want to perform an horizontal flight, above the bridge it turned, went up and suddenly disappeared. It was immediately replaced by another.

This odd carousel reportedly lasted three quarters of an hour.

These observations were confirmed by several people and in particular by a chemical engineer of the laboratory of ballistic and atomic researches for the army, who followed at the same hour the RN 182. The engineer observed the mysterious brilliant craft and judged, with the person accompanying him, that it could only be flying saucers.
