Sighting Description: Nel corso di un avvistamento collettivo su tutta la Liguria di numerosi corpi velocissimi che avevano un diametro apparente di 25-30 metri, il motopeschereccio “Ochetta”, alle ore 05:20 osservava, a circa 30 miglia a sud di Monte Argentario, tre corpi luminosi, circondati da un alone bianco. I pescatori, poco dopo, notarono che da essi si staccarono alcuni frammenti incandescenti, che si inabissarono in mare aperto.
