Sighting Description: Molte persone assistettero ad una scena strana avvenuta a circa duecento metri dalla costa. Un oggetto, a forma di disco volante, si tuffò in mare e scomparve dopo aver ricevuto segnali luminosi apparsi sotto la superficie del mare. Le fonti paragonano il caso con un sottomarino rimasto che non riusciva ad uscire da un fiordo norvegese e lanciò pertanto diversi segnali luminosi. L’oggetto aveva un diametro maggiore di 100 metri, sormontato da una cupola e con alcune sfere sulla base. Un barista in modo confidenziale dichiarò all’inquirente che ha svolto indagini in loco che secondo i Carabinieri si era trattato di un pallone meteorologico. A questo avvistamento viene associato anche quello avvenuto due anni prima quando due donne del paese videro uscire dall’acqua due palombari alti tre metri, con tuta nera e maschera sul viso, che lasciarono impronte sulla sabbia di circa mezzo metro, prima di levarsi in volo. Una delle due donne venne ricoverata all’ospedale per lo shock ed in paese si diffuse la notizia che si era trattato di uno scherzo fatto da due studenti.  

Sighting Description: Many people witnessed an unusual scene which happened about two hundred meters away from the coast. An object shaped like a flying disk, dove into the sea and disappeared, after having received flashing signals from under the surface of the sea. The sources compare this case to that of a submarine which was unable to exit a Norwegian fiord and send several flashing signals. The object, with a diameter of over 100 meters, was dome-shaped on the top and had some spheres below. A bartender told the investigator, in confidence, that according to the police it was a weather balloon. To this sighting is also associated the one which happened two years before when two local women saw two divers emerge from the water. They were three meters tall; they were dressed in a black diving suit and were wearing a mask. The divers left prints on the sand half a meter large before flying away. One of the women was admitted to the hospital due to the shock and in the small town there was a rumor that it was a prank made from two students.
