CISU Case: 085

Location: Genova-Olbia

Category: C (Objects that surface out the water)

Evaluation: Insufficient information

Original Source: "Il Giornale dei Misteri" n. 105 pag. 10.        

Sighting Description: Alcuni passeggeri di un traghetto, che fa rotta da Genova ad Olbia, ebbero modo di osservare un grosso corpo cilindrico, alto come un grattacielo, emergere improvvisamente dalle acque a breve distanza. Questo caso può essere messo in paragone con il n. 087, poiché potrebbe trattarsi dello stesso avvistamento, con un errore causato dalle fonti giornalistiche dell’epoca. 

Sighting Description: Some passengers on a ferry that does the route from Genoa to Olbia, had on the way, observed a large cylindrical high body like a skyscraper, to emerge suddenly from waters at a short distance. This case can be put in comparison with case number 087 (See 06-22-1979), since it could be a matter of the same sighting, with an error caused by the journalistic sources of the period.
