Sighting Description: Mentre alcune persone si trovavano in spiaggia, un tratto di mare fu visto ribollire improvvisamente. Dalle acque si levò una grande macchia scura come un’ombra, una nuvola nera. L’oggetto emergendo lasciò dietro di sé un’alta onda e rapidamente si diresse verso l’entroterra. L’oggetto fu visto anche in paese e qui accadde un fatto curioso. Al passaggio del corpo sopra un bar le porte del locale si spalancarono come spinte da un colpo di vento ed il soffitto si lesionò in più punti. Il giornale pubblicò anche la foto dei danni subiti dal soffitto.           

Sighting Description: While some people were watching from the beach, a stretch of the sea suddenly started bubbling. From the water, a big dark spot arose, like a shadow, like a black cloud. The object left behind it a tall wave and rapidly headed inland. People in the town also saw the object. While it was passing over a bar the door of the store opened like it had been pushed by the wind and the ceiling cracked in a few places. The newspaper published the pictures of the damage the ceiling suffered.
