Antonio Pallesca caught sight of a reddish light at
sea following his boat. Frightened, he drew up his nets and directed his ship
towards land. The light stayed with him, first behind him, then beside him,
then in front of him. As it circled around his boat, he couldn't discern it
as anything but a light. It left him shortly before he arrived in port. On Nov. 7, he had another run-in
with an orange light and a dark floating object. Pallesca
has been a seafarer for 30 years.
