M. Blanc, the conductor of a streetcar, saw 300' in front of him, beside the road, a sort of gray/white luminous curtain, looking as if rain were falling behind it.
As the streetcar approached, he saw the luminous curtain part, and in the middle appeared a human form, about 5½' tall, which he took for an apparition of the Blessed Virgin.
This figure was wearing a veil on its head and a close fitting long white robe with a blue girdle, and had its hand held out in front.
After about 15 seconds, the figure rose up, and appeared to be sucked up into a lenticular shaped gray cloud, the cloud rose to 60' altitude and went off horizontally toward Nice at high speed, leaving a trail behind it.
The passengers on the streetcar saw only the cloud.
The next day the Nice newspaper L’Eclaireur reported a similar apparition in Nice 30 minutes later.
