Three fishermen in Le Brusc, France observe oval, mirror-like object at sea
Date: April 1968
Location: Le Brusc, Var, France

In April 1968, three fishermen from the French fishing-port of Le Brusc were fairly far out at sea, "when suddenly, in a break in the clouds, a sort of 'thing' appeared -- ovalish in shape -- which was just hanging there in the sky. It looked like a mirror and it was shining, and it did not move... The thing remained stationary over the sea for two or three minutes and then vanished before our eyes as though swallowed up by the waves."

Sindbad the Sailor, Report No. 1
(Extract)

The account is taken from Lumières dans la Nuit (Contact Lecteurs), Series 3, No. 5 of January 1971

A lady correspondent of Lumières Dans La Nuit recently found out about these happenings when she had the opportunity to spend some time at the Mediterranean French fishing-port of Le Brusc, in the Dept. of Var (south-eastern France, between Marseilles and Nice). She was able to interview some of the men involved, having won their confidence, but only on condition that their names be not revealed

The account of the informant, a fisherman, is as follows:

"Two years ago, in April 1968, three of us were fairly far out at sea, in heavy weather, with cloud and strong wind. Night had not yet quite fallen when suddenly, in a break in the clouds, a sort of "thing" appeared -- ovalish in shape -- which was just hanging there in the sky. It looked like a mirror and it was shining, and it did not move. Then a cloud passed in front of it, hiding it for a few minutes, but when the cloud had gone the queer thing was still there."

"It seemed, however, to have changed colour a bit and to be giving off pinkish flashes. Then, after about fifteen minutes or so, it seemed to move very slowly from east to west, dropping gradually as it did so. And as the thing came down, it seemed to change shape so that, instead of being vertical as it had been before, the oval was now horizontal (see Fig. 1) and from pinkish the colour had now turned to bluish."

"The thing remained stationary over the sea for two or three minutes and then vanished before our eyes, as though swallowed up by the waves, and we did not see it again."

"The sighting had lasted a total of 25 minutes. We heard no sound; the thing was absolutely silent despite the fact that it was not far from our boat. It gave out no trail, no flame, no sparks, and was absolutely bare of all marks or trappings, etc. We have no idea what it could have been."
