PRES DE VITTORIA (Catània)   

Sighting Description: M. Matteo Dl MARTINO (46 ans), fermier, et son épouse, virent une lueur très intense sur la mer, à environ 3 miles de la côte. Avec des jumelles, M. Dl MARTINO vit un objet rouge très brillant semblable à un « bateau » ( ?), qui s'élevait de la mer. L'objet avait 2 grandes antennes à chacune de ses extrémités. Environ 45 minutes plus tard, la lueur commença à faiblir en intensité et les antennes s'inclinèrent jusqu'à atteindre une position horizontale. Puis, l'objet descendit vers la mer et disparut de la vue du témoin.  Pendant que le phénomène se déroulait, il pleuvait.

Near Vittoria (Catània)

Sighting Description: Mr. Matteo DI MARTINO (46 years old), a farmer, and his wife, saw a very intense glow on the sea, approximately 3 miles from the coast.  With binoculars, Mr. DI MARTINO saw a very bright red object similar to a «boat» (?), which rose up from the sea. The object had 2 big antennas on each one of its ends.  About 45 minutes later, the glow began to weaken in intensity and the antennas inclined until they reached a horizontal position.  Then, the object descended toward the sea and disappeared from the witness's view.  While this phenomenon took place, it was raining.
