1981 – UFO sighting in Trans-en-Provence, France
The Trans-en-Provence Case was an event where an unidentified flying object is claimed to have left physical evidence, in the form of burnt residue on a field.
The event took place on January 8th, 1981, outside the town of Trans-en-Provence in the French department of Var.
Renato Nicolaï, a 55-year-old farmer, heard a strange whistling sound while performing agricultural work on his property.
He then saw a saucer-shaped object about eight feet in diameter land about 50 yards (46 m) away at a lower elevation.
It was described in Popular Mechanics as “perhaps the most completely and carefully documented sighting of all time”.
Extra Note: According to the Renato, “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 colour 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 (8 in) below the body of the machine.”
