Go Back Report # 1339



Dec. 16, 1978; Francavilla, Italy

2:30 AM. A college coed saw an ovoid UFO surrounded by a white mist. She was standing in her living room by a balcony overlooking the sea when she noticed a gaseous form, white in color with two pulsating lights, a red one at one end, a green one at the other end. It descended onto the surface of the sea and became a very bright fluorescent white light that reflected off the surface of the water. She attempted to wake her parents but they continued to sleep. She next noticed two short figures standing in the garden at the adjacent apartment. They were very thin with large squarish heads and large feet. Both were wearing dark gray tight-fitting uniforms. They turned a corner moving as if in slow motion and in a limping manner, disappearing down an alleyway. Moments later the bright white light, now very near the breakwater, vanished.
