Sighting Description: Un agricoltore, intento a finire il suo lavoro, in compagnia della moglie, osservò a tre miglia dalla costa una luce intensissima nel mare. L’uomo guardò l’oggetto con un binocolo e poté notare che l’oggetto aveva la forma di una nave che emergeva dal mare e che emanava una luce abbagliante. Alle due estremità vi erano due grandi antenne. Dopo circa mezz’ora, la luminosità cominciò ad attenuarsi e le antenne si abbassarono fino in posizione orizzontale e contemporaneamente l’ordigno si abbassò scomparendo nel mare.    

Sighting Description: A farmer and his wife, while finishing a job, noticed three miles away from the coast, a very intense light in the sea. The man looked at the object with binoculars and noticed that it was shaped like a boat emerging from the sea and emitted a blinding light. At both ends it had two big antennas. After about half hour, the brightness began to dim and the antennas lowered until they reached a horizontal position, at the same time the object dropped and disappeared in the sea.
