Sighting Description: Numerosi testimoni, tra cui anche tre poliziotti, videro una grossa palla di fuoco, con una lunga coda luminosa, che proveniva da est ed era diretta verso ovest. Aveva un colorazione tra il rosso, il blu ed il bianco. Addirittura l’oggetto venne seguito per oltre un minuto dai tecnici della torre di controllo dell’aeroporto di Fiumicino-Roma, che hanno osservato l’oggetto spezzarsi in due, perdere la sua luminosità e precipitare infine in mare.
