Go Back Report # 477



By Lieut- Colonel Lobet

XI -- Further Supportive Material

Monsieur Guy Pothin testified that at about 10.00 p.m. on February 10, 1975, at Petite Ile, he had seen a very bright object come up out of the sea 6 and fly overhead very fast. He had watched this object for a considerable time, and had spoken to his brother about it, but he had never mentioned it to Antoine Séverin (with whom he worked).

Note #6: Here, on the contrary, is a detail that is of the greatest conceivable importance and interest! Réunion lies away out in the vast Indian Ocean. And here is a witness claiming to have seen a UFO come up out of the sea and fly over the island. (Compare with the many reports in FSR in past years about UFOs seen leaving or entering the sea, most especially around the coasts of South America and in the Mediterranean, as well as round the shores of the British Isles.)
