Sighting Description: Una telefonata alla Capitaneria di Porto Empedocle segnalò l’osservazione di un oggetto luminoso con una scia blu che era stato visto cadere in mare. L’ipotesi più credibile fu quella di un fuoco artificiale visto precipitare in acqua, poiché in quel tratto di mare si stava svolgendo una processione con le barche per la festa della Madonna del Carmelo.         

Sighting Description: A telephone call to the Harbor Master's Office at the port of Empedocle reported an observation of a bright object with a blue trail that had been seen falling into the sea. The most credible hypothesis was that of fireworks seen falling into the water because in that stretch of the sea, a procession with boats was taking place for the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
