OVNI Trans-en-Provence UFO
OVNI are the initials for UFO. The following story is called one of the most well-documented sightings of all time. It is certainly France's biggest claim to UFO fame; one of the most "realistic" happenings.
In 1981, in the village of Trans-en-Provence, France, a farmer, Renato Nicolai, was chilling out, minding his own business, working in his field when a very strange event happened.
He heard a strange whistling sound and looked over to see a sort of double decker flying saucer land 45 meters away from where he was standing in his field.
Mr. Nicolai notified the Gendarmerie, the police. Here is his statement:
"The device had the shape of two saucers, one inverted on top of the other. It must have measured about 1.5 meters in height. It was the color of lead. This device had a ridge all the way around its circumference. Under the machine I saw two kinds of pieces as it was lifting off. They could be reactors or feet. There were also two other circles which looked like trapdoors. The two reactors, or feet, extended about 20 cm below the body of the machine."
The police took photographs and collected soil and plant samples from the scene, the latter sent to GEPAN for further study. The results of the studies were the following: the ground had indeed been compressed by something weighing 4 to 5 tons, the mechanism that had set down on the field heated the ground up to between 300 to 600 degrees Celsius, phosphate and zinc were found in the soil samples and the chlorophyll levels of the plants had changed. When the same people tested the plants a year later, the levels were back to normal.
Here is a short documentary, in French, of the incident.
