Several officers at La Remonte Military base nearby even heard a strange sound made by the object which seemed to have come from the north. (A similar observation had been made on January 16, 1954, when the object had come from the west). The meteorological station at Oued Hamimime airport (near Constantine) reported that it had observed a double trail of smoke at 1400 hours but concluded that the smoke came from a plane flying at great altitude. At 1430 hours, inhabitants of Setif saw an object arrive from the east, emitting bluish smoke trails and moving relatively slowly. After circling above the town for several seconds, it suddenly headed back in the direction of Saint Arnaud at great speed. Most of the spectators described it as it being cigar-shape and flying at high altitude. Finally at 1645 hours on the same day, a large, luminous, rectangular-shape object was seen over Ouled Djellal (200 kilometers southwest of Setif) for over 30 minutes following a rectilinear course. The object came from the east and disappeared toward the west.

Clouds suspended in the atmosphere condensation of water vapour visible in the sky from the surface of the earth. They consist of tiny water droplets and/or ice crystals (called cloud elements).

The plane/helicopter

Flying machine heavier than air to fly in the atmosphere (and in space (eg. The orbital plane)) that use aerodynamic lift of the airframe to hold yourself in the air (when flying within the atmosphere) and thrust force (propulsion) installations for the maneuvering and compensation for the loss of total mechanical energy to drag.

Rotary wing aircraft, which are necessary for flight lift and thrust generated by one or more rotors driven by a motor or several motors. Differ in maneuverability, ability to hover and almost vertical takeoff.


Versions testing, their confirmation or refutation. Additional information, notes during the study of materials
