Sighting Description: Nel primo pomeriggio, un oggetto avvolto in una nuvola di fumo, solcò il cielo ad altissima velocità, andando poi ad inabissarsi in mare. Il corpo, che a tratti sembrava incandescente, prima di scomparire ha sfiorato la superficie dell’acqua per circa mezzo miglio, in direzione sud-ovest. Il punto di impatto con il mare era a circa duecento metri dalla costa.

Sighting Description: In the beginning of the afternoon, an object wrapped in a cloud of smoke, plowed through the sky at high speed, then went down into the sea. Before disappearing, the body, which at times seemed incandescent, had grazed the surface of the water for about half a mile in the direction of the southwest. The impact point with the sea was approximately two hundred meters from the coast.
