Sighting Description: Quattro pescatori raccontarono di aver visto, durante una battuta di pesca, una grande fiammata accecante a circa 500 metri dal punto in cui si trovavano. Gli stessi hanno poi aggiunto che pochi minuti prima della fiammata hanno visto volare sopra di loro un aereo. Dopo aver avvertito le autorità sono rientrati in porto, temendo che il fenomeno fosse collegato con un recente terremoto.
