Sighting Description: Un oggetto dai colori cangianti e dalle forme indefinibili fu osservato muoversi sul pelo dell’acqua da numerose persone ferme sulla spiaggia e sugli scogli. L’oggetto proveniva da nord, trasportato dalle correnti e si dirigeva verso sud. Un ragazzo, incuriosito, si tuffò recuperando l’oggetto ed identificandolo come un sacchetto di rifiuti, che venne aperto e dove, al suo interno, fu ritrovata anche una cartolina raffigurante il duomo di Orvieto, indirizzata ad una ragazza di Messina.
