A flying
saucer appears to
two Cambrésians

Sunday evening, around 7 a.m., Mr. Maurice Ramette, 24 years old from Naves near Cambrai and Mr. Léon Hequier, 28 years old, from Sailly-en-Camraisis, were walking back from Zutquerque.

They saw high in the sky and to their right an unusual object of round shape and pinkish white color smaller than the moon, but much larger than a star and which seemed to be moving towards them. They remained petrified; the object went out. They resumed their journey and saw it again, re-lit and moving away two to their left, faster than a jet plane.

Mr. Ramette, who recounts the event, is a beet tarer at Audruicq station. He seems very sincere. His 2.5 year old son is still terrified of the apparition. His wife denies being scared, but admits having returned quickly to her home and no longer dared to go out to go to the movies.

Is this curious phenomenon a saucer?
