Sighting Description: Un pilota militare, intervistato dall’ufologo Marco Orlandi, in merito ad un oggetto osservato in volo, raccontò di essere stato testimone, negli anni ’50, quando era bambino, di un'altra osservazione. Vide un oggetto lampeggiante bianco rosso e verde che uscì dal mare, dirigendosi prima ad est e poi ad ovest; successivamente si fermò in aria e schizzò via. Dell’avvistamento, ricorda, furono testimoni almeno tremila persone ed uscirono numerosi articoli nella stampa locale.          

Sighting Description: A military pilot, interviewed by the ufologist Marco Orlandi about an object observed in the air, said that he witnessed another sighting in the Fifties when he was a child. He saw an object flashing white, red, and green that came out of the sea, heading to the east first and then to the west; later it stopped in the air and darted away. Of the sighting, he recalls at least three thousand people witnessed it, and there were several articles published in the local newspapers.
