Sighting Description: Molti testimoni osservarono un oggetto di forma rotondeggiante ed apparentemente infuocato, che attraversò il cielo per circa due minuti ad un’altezza di trecento metri. Alcune persone riferirono che dall’oggetto di staccavano pezzi incandescenti. Successivamente l’oggetto si è come spento e ha perso la sua luminescenza, diventando scuro e cominciando a discendere lentamente verso il mare, fino a sparirvi in lontananza. Tra i testimoni vi era anche un generale dell’Esercito che identificò l’oggetto con un pallone meteorologico in fiamme.        

Sighting Description: Many witnesses observed large round object shape apparently burning, which crossed the sky for approximately two minutes. The object was at a height of three hundred meters. Some people reported that from the object incandescent pieces were being detached. Subsequently the burning was extinguished and the object lost its luminescence, becoming dark and beginning to come down slowly towards the sea, until disappearing in the distance. Between the witnesses there was also a General of the Army that identified the object as a meteorological balloon in flames.
