Sighting Description: Un pescatore, di nome Giuseppe Pregnolato, mentre era intento a riparare le reti, vide un corpo volante di forma ovoidale, seguito da una scia variopinta. L’oggetto, che volava molto lentamente e che compiva alcune evoluzioni per le quali, secondo la testimonianza, sembrava essere comandato, si abbassò con traiettoria obliqua sul canale, sfiorando il pelo dell’acqua ed i canneti, come se si stesse preparando per una planata ed un atterraggio. Successivamente riprese quota. Nella stessa zona vennero poi rinvenute strane tracce formate da una striscia di liquido lattiginoso.   

Sighting Description: A fisherman named Giuseppe Pregnolato, while he was repairing the fishing nets, saw a flying object of oval shape which was followed by a multicolored wake. The object was flying very slowly and, according to the witness, was rotating as if it was controlled. The object dropped with a trajectory oblique in respect to the canal, skimming over the water and the canes as if it was preparing for a glide and a landing. Later it regained altitude. After this event, in the same area, were found some unusual prints formed by a milk-like liquid.

Note: I would just like to point out the similarity of the “milk-like” liquid and the Shag Harbour case with a yellow foam. –CF-

Barbamarco – Barbamarco Lagoon is a shallow lagoon (less than 2m) on the Adriatic coast and adjacent to the Po River channels. The lagoon stretches about 6 km along the coast and is about 1 km wide; the shallows are drained through a series of dredged channels and the freshwater input to the lagoon can be controlled by a gate, thus an experiment can be conducted where the fresh water input is controlled. –CF- URL too long to include here.
