A heavenly body that seemed three times as big as the moon. At Givry, near Chalon-sur-Saone, a celestial body was observed on Sunday evening that crossed the sky from east to west and left a ray of light behind. The diameter of this air phenomenon seemed three times as large as that of the moon. Silently and quickly it disappeared behind the mountains. Several people got up and the roosters started crowing, as they thought that the first daylight was already starting to shine.

It went into the direction of Stadenberg. We haven't heard anything more about it.
