UFOs in the daily Press:

Saucer prank, France, 1954:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper L'Eclair du Cambresis, Le Cateau-Cambrésis, Nord, France, page 3, on October 31, 1954.

See the case file.



The other evening people gathered in the rue Auguste-Seydoux to curiously contemplate the moves of a luminous circle resembling what one uses to call "flying saucer". A soldier on leave did not find anything better than talking about alerting the Espinoy air base!!! what would he have taken for his rank even if he was only a private... Finally our observers recognized that they were small balloons attached to each other, supporting a disc of color with electric lamps. Everyone laughed at the adventure, guessing the advertising trick, and agreed that you have to have your feet on the ground before thinking of seeing Martians...
