Sighting Description: Il pescatore Roberto Cinchella, a bordo del motopeschereccio “Padre Pio”, vide sul mare calmo, durante una notte di foschia, un lampo rosso ed una macchia bianca e descrisse il fenomeno come “se il mare stesse per riunirsi al cielo”. Altre fonti parlano di un lampo rosso che fu visto alzarsi dal mare. Il radar di bordo, comunque, smise di funzionare ed il testimone avvertì via radio un altro collega a bordo del motopesca “Aquila”, che confermò il malfunzionamento del radar.  

Sighting Description: Roberto Cinchella, a fisherman, was aboard the trawler “Padre Pio” one misty night when he saw a red flash and a white mark out at sea. He described the phenomenon as being “like the sea uniting itself with the sky”. Other sources told of a red flash seen coming out of the sea. In any case, the on-board radar stopped working and the witness notified via radio a colleague aboard the fishing boat “Aquila”, who confirmed the radar malfunction.

ALSO  

       Roberto Cichella, owner of the "lgea" fishing boat, saw a reddish flash or streak rise into the sky. At the same instant, his ship's radar stopped functioning. He radioed Giorgio Mazzoni who was following him in his own boat. Mazzoni turned on his own radar and saw that the radar line (indicating the axis of his boat) was fragmented into seven or eight segments. Both men also refer to an area of churning sea in front of the coastal area between Silvi and Giulianova.
