A UFO in the shape of a disk with a floating sphere at its center hovers over the sea
Something rushed up into the sky out of the greyness— rushed slantingly upward and very swiftly into the luminous clearness above the clouds in the western sky; something flat and broad, and very large, that swept round in a vast curve, grew smaller, sank slowly, and vanished again into the grey mystery of the night. And as it flew it rained down darkness upon the land.

Description

A UFO in the shape of a disk with a sphere bearing dangling tentacles at its center hovers over the sea.
The caption reads in the Belgian edition:

Hors de l’horizon grisâtre quelque chose monta dans le ciel, monta obliquement et très rapidement dans la lumineuse clarté, au-dessus des nuages du ciel occidental, un objet plat, large et vaste qui décrivit une courbe immense, diminua peu à peu, s’enfonça lentement et s’évanouit dans le mystère gris de la nuit. Quand il eut disparu, on eût dit qu’il pleuvait des ténèbres.
