Location: Saint-Sauveur-La-Sagne, France
Date: August 1954
Time: morning
Mrs. Carriere, on holiday in the area, was returning to the house one early morning when she saw an object resembling a “big black balloon” landing on a nearby field. From the object “a very small man with a dreadful black face” emerges, a similar figure remains in the object. The little man remains on the ground only for a few moments and then re-boards the object, which then rises silently leaving behind a very white wake. The witness notices two cows on the ground wriggling in apparent pain. A farmer and his wife who come upon the scene are paralyzed and unable to move.

A bright orange light on a nearby field attracted several children hiding behind a hedge in order to surprise some other children. Looking at the field they saw an orange metallic disc-shaped object apparently on the ground, it had a dome on top and revolving orange lights on its center. The color of the object resembled brushed aluminum. A being is seeing standing upright within the dome and another is seen leaving the object. Two others are on the ground, one holding a bag and the other a “hoe” like instrument. All the humanoids wore dark brown & black combination suits. Soon the beings on the ground placed their arms stiffly on the sides of their body and rise vertically then follow a curving trajectory into the object, head first. The orange light on the object dims and then the crafts shoots up at incredible speed disappearing in seconds.

Location: Hemmingford Quebec Canada
Date: August 7 1954
Time: 1930
Gabriel Coupal, 13, saw a 9-foot luminous ball land 150 ft away; after landing it turned black. A door opened, and “a big tall man with big round eyes” came out, dressed all in skintight black rubber except for his head, and carrying a “machine gun.” There was a “buzz like a bee.” The man approached and the boys ran their horse for the house. The UFO rose, passed close by them, and landed again near the horse barn. It “had a black cable with a square thing hanging.” In the moonlight, it looked “like a soap bubble,” and 3 men were seen walking around it. Mrs Coupal telephoned Hemmingford to get another witness, but when 3 people arrived the object took off, glowing orange. It had been present for an hour or more. Where it had rested was found a 30-foot circle of flattened grass.
