Sighting Description: L’equipaggio di un peschereccio, composto da cinque marinai, che stava effettuando una battuta di pesca al pesce spada, notò una luce bassa sull’orizzonte. La barca si avvicinò tanto da cozzare con l’oggetto galleggiante, che aveva la forma di un disco volante, sormontato da una cupola a semisfera. Aveva un diametro massimo stimato in quattro-cinque metri, un’altezza dal livello dell’acqua di 1,5 metri ed un colore nero fumo opaco; la cupola era trasparente come il cristallo ed al suo interno erano chiaramente visibili luci che erano emanate da pannelli simili a postazioni di comando. Nessun occupante venne avvistato. L’oggetto galleggiava muovendosi con un rollio e beccheggio esattamente come qualsiasi altraimbarcazione.

Sighting Description: The five men crew of a fishing boat, while fishing for swordfish, noticed a light low on the horizon. The boat came so close to the floating object that it ran into it. The object, shaped like a flying disk, was surmounted by a dome-shaped half sphere. It had a diameter of approximately four-five meters, a height from the water line of 1.5 meters and a color resembling to opaque smoke; the dome-shape top was clear like crystal and on the inside one could see lights which were emitted by panels similar to command stations. No occupant was seen. The floating object was moving with a rolling and a pitching just like any other boat.
