Observation of a sphere moving at high speed from an ultra-light aircraft.
Detailed descriptionOn May 16, 1993 around 19:15, two passengers of a ULA flight observe in the distance, a bluish sphere which turns on itself while moving at high speed. The weather and visibility are excellent. The sphere quickly approaches the ULA flight and passes it at high speed. The observation lasted between 15 to 20 seconds. The investigation near the civil authorities and military didn't allow to identify the phenomenon. The object was not identified to any conventional aircraft and was not detected by the radars. This phenomenon remains unexplained.

Observation of a stationary yellow ball lasting a few minutes.
Detailed descriptionOn August 11, 1993 around 3:30, a witness driving his car observes a large stationary luminous ball in the sky. This ball is sparkling yellow, rotating on itself in silence and bigger than a star. The form was described as a disc with a dome or the shape of an upside-down “mushroom”. Returning home, the witness asks his mother to observe the phenomenon. She will describes it the same way her son did. The observation lasted a few minutes before it disappeared. It does not seem that this observation could be mistaken with a shooting stars. This same evening was advertised for "shooting star night". The phenomenon observed remains unexplained.

Summary
Observation of a triangular object changing speed and direction
Detailed descriptionOn December 3, 1979, around 16:50, two witnesses observe a triangular shaped object emitting two traces of red smoke. The object flew over a radio tower, then stopped a few seconds before setting out again. The witnesses followed it until it went out of sight, red smoke being visible until the end of the observation. A third witness observed at the same time a very shiny point in the sky without being able to make a correlation between the two observations. The investigation did not make it possible to identify air traffic corresponding to the observations and this observation remains unexplained.
