CISU Case: 220

Original Source: e-mail del testimone del 16/10/2002.           

Sighting Description: Una e-mail di una persona, che si dichiara essere un militare da poco in pensione, racconta di due fotografie scattate da una motovedetta della Capitaneria di Porto di Pescara nel lontano 1978 al largo della costa abruzzese.

In entrambe sarebbe ritratto un oggetto discoidale che rimane sospeso sulle onde marine, proprio sul pelo dell’acqua; il soggetto occupava in entrambi gli scatti l'80% dell'intero fotogramma. Il testimone racconta di essere riuscito a farsi due copie per sé, in formato 30x20, poiché in quel momento, era stato incaricato della stampa dei fotogrammi. Questi furono poi ritirati da un'Ufficiale del SIOS Marina proveniente da Roma ed atterrato con altri militari presso l'aeroporto militare "Liberi". Purtroppo non vi sono altri particolari. E’ comunque probabile che il caso possa essere inquadrato nell’ondata adriatica e quindi che sia avvenuto nei mesi di ottobre-novembre del 1978.   

Sighting Description: E-mail from a person who affirms to be a retired serviceman, talks about two photographs taken from a patrol boat from Pescara, off the coast of Abruzzi, in 1978.

In both photographs there is an object shaped like a disk, which is above the water surface; the object made up 80% of the entire picture. The witness recounts that he was able to make two 30x20 copies for himself because, at the time, he was in charge of the photograph printing. The photographs were collected later by an officer of the Navy who had come from Rome and had landed, with other servicemen at the “Liberi” military airport. Unfortunately there is no other detail available. It is probable that this can be part of the “Adriatic wave” and the time of the sighting was in October-November 1978.
