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 (southeastern France, between Marseilles1 and Nice). She was able to interview some of the men involved, having won their confidence, but only on condition that their names [not be] revealed.

I was out alone in my boat; it was a mild night, with a starry night, and the sea calm.

It had gone midnight when I saw a great big light developing very rapidly at sea level. It rose up very high into the sky. It was red, and when I saw it, at first my thought had been that it was a ship on fire, but I saw no flames or smoke from it. It was more like an immense flare with a little vapour around it. It changed colour, passing first from red to orange, and then green, and then blue, and then orange again. I heard no sound of any explosion; it all happened in absolute silence. Then this light or glow split up into several parts and then gradually they faded away bit by bit till the whole sky was black again. The sighting had lasted 15 minutes. I have never found out what the glow could have been or from where it could have come. I made enquiries to find out if a boat had been on fire or had exploded in the area, but I was told that there had not been, nor had there been any flares or fireworks, I never found out what it was."
