Oval-shaped objects with portholes observed in France

Date: September 16, 1996
Location: Corme Royal, France

On September 16, 1996, in the 5-hour old neighbourhoods, the witness in his car observes an ovoid [oval-shaped] machine [object] with three portholes emitting a strong orange light. The object is stationary at an altitude of 30 to 40 meters and between 300 and 400 meters from the road. The somewhat frightened witness continues on the road and subsequently observes two identical objects higher in the sky. The objects observed were dark and their size estimated at ten meters length. No explanation was found with this close observation.

The following is a brief summary of the case. The case is from the files of the official French government UFO research program GEIPAN (Group for the Study and Information of Unidentified Aerospace Phenomenon), which is a part of CNES, the French government space agency. The full report and file on this case [in French language] is on the GEIPAN website at http://www.cnes-geipan.fr/geipan. The case has been classified as a 'Class D' case, which are the unexplained cases in the GEIPAN files.

The summary has been translated using automatic computer translation, so it is not a perfect translation.

On September 16, 1996, in the 5-hour old neighbourhoods, a witness in his car notices a luminous point, suddenly very bright, of an unusual size. He then observes an ovoid [oval-shaped] machine [object] with three portholes emitting a strong orange light. The object is stationary at an altitude of 30 to 40 meters and between 300 and 400 meters from the road. The somewhat frightened witness continues on the road and subsequently observes two identical objects higher in the sky. The objects observed were dark and their size estimated at ten meters length. No explanation was found with this close observation.
