Sighting Description: Alcune persone telefonarono al centralino del giornale La Sicilia per denunciare l’avvistamento di un oggetto luminosissimo, di colore azzurro, che si era sollevato dal mare, in posizione sud-est. L’oggetto più si alzava in cielo e più aumentava la propria luminosità. Il fenomeno improvvisamente scomparve , spegnendo di colpo la propria luce. Alcune ore dopo venne osservato un fenomeno identico. L’osservazione venne messa in relazione dal giornale con l’arresto del noto contattista Eugenio Siragusa, accusato di plagio, truffa e violenza carnale.        

Sighting Description: Some people called the switchboard of the newspaper La Sicilia to report the sighting of a shining object, blue in color, arising from the sea from the southeast. The higher it rose the brighter it became. Suddenly the object disappeared like a light being switched off. A few hours later the identical phenomenon was observed. The newspaper reported that this sighting appeared at the same time as the arrest of the famous "contattista" Eugenio Siragusa, accused of plagiarism, fraud and rape.
