Sighting Description: Un testimone a terra ed un pescatore videro una luce bianca di dimensioni più piccole di una luce di un aereo che volava all’orizzonte. Dopo circa dieci minuti, una luce di uguale dimensione, fu vista alzarsi dal mare e dirigersi verso un’altra luce che dallo zenit gli andava incontro. Giunte vicine le due luci si fermarono per circa un’ora ad un’altezza angolare di 60° sull’orizzonte.

Sighting Description: A witness on land and a fisherman saw a white light smaller than the light of an airplane flying on the horizon. About ten minutes later, a light of equal dimensions was seen lifting up from the sea and going towards another light which from the zenith was going towards it. Once next to each other, then two lights stopped for about one hour at an angled altitude of 60 degrees on the horizon.
