Sighting Description: Verso le ore 20:00 a sette miglia dalla costa, l’armatore del Laura Madre, che era scettico su tutte le voci riguardanti i fenomeni dell’Adriatico, notò una grossa luce rossa di prua al motopesca. Pensando che fosse una boa di segnalazione, deviò la rotta, ma successivamente si accorse che non si trattava di una boa, bensì di un oggetto a pelo d’acqua che emanava una luce. L’oggetto si spostava in continuazione, secondo le manovre del Laura Madre e nonostante i continui cambi di rotta per scansarlo, era sempre sotto l’imbarcazione. Preso dal panico, il testimone invertì la rotta e venne seguito fino in porto dalla luce rossa, che continuava ad effettuare evoluzioni intorno al peschereccio. Il testimone, infine, per lo shock, vene ricoverato d’urgenza in ospedale.                      

Sighting Description: The owner of the ship Laura Madre, who was skeptical about the rumors of the phenomenon of the Adriatic, noticed, about 8:00p.m., seven miles off the coast, a large red light in front of the fishing ship. Believing that it was a buoy, he changed route, but he later realized that it was not a buoy. It was, instead, an object on the water surface emitting a light. The object moved constantly following the Laura Madre and, in spite of all the route changes of the ship, it stayed close to it. The witness, panic stricken, inverted the route of the ship and it was followed into the harbor by the red light, which continued to make turns/rotations around the fishing boat. The witness was taken to the hospital following this sighting.
