Sighting Description: Uno dei pochi casi italiani, a parte l’ondata adriatica del 1978, che è stato citato anche dalla stampa estera. Alcuni pescatori hanno riferito di aver visto una bomba fantasma, un grosso e misterioso proiettile che cadeva in mare, lanciando verso l’alto una vistosa nuvola di vapore. L’ipotesi lanciata dai giornali dell’epoca è che si sia trattato di un razzo del tipo tedesco V, lanciato da una base in territorio Jugoslavo.

Sighting Description: One of the little Italian cases, a part of the Adriatic big wave of 1978, which has been cited also in the foreign press. Some fishermen reported to have seen a fireworks phantom, a big and mysterious projectile that fell into the sea, throwing up a considerable cloud of vapor. The hypothesis given by newspapers of the period is that it had been a V-type German rocket launched from a base in Yugoslavian territory.
