An extremely rare phenomenon. According to hundreds of testimonies on social networks as well as the images of webcams, a UFO (unidentified flying object) would have flown over the Breton sky in the night from Sunday to Monday. In a large part of the department of Finistère, in the vicinity of Brest, a light and a thud was seen and heard. Gurvan Musset, director of France Bleu Breizh Izel, even evokes a “big explosion”, heard especially “on the side of Brest and the North Coast”. “I assure you it was impressive,” he says.
The luminous halo was also captured by Steven Tual, a Breton meteorologist based in Côtes-d´Armor. The latter confirms the hypothesis of a “meteorite”, just like Météo France Bretagne.
A call for testimony has been launched to find out more about this visible event as far as the Channel Island of Jersey.
On LCI this Monday, Guillaume Woznica, Weather journalist, recalls that we are talking – for the time being – of a meteor. “Until we find any fragments of a meteorite on Earth, we call it a meteor. An investigation is bound to be decisive in this situation,” he said.
Note that a similar phenomenon was observed in Île-de-France last spring but that no fragment has been found to date.
