On July 1st, 1965, lavender farmer Maurice Masse experienced a UFO visit which would leave him shaky. The French village of Valensole, is a sleepy place, and in 1965 it was even sleepier. Apparently when Masse first witnessed the craft landing in his fields he believed it to be a helicopter and ran in the direction screaming for them to leave. When the farmer was close enough he realized the 4 foot tall extraterrestrial beings were inspecting his lavender plants and were not from this planet.
