Sighting Description: Una luce venne vista accendersi improvvisamente in cielo e cadere lentamente in acqua, dopo aver effettuato tutta una serie di avvitamenti larghi su se stessa. E’ probabile che si sia trattato razzo di segnalazione lanciato dai contrabbandieri di sigarette per eludere le motovedette della Polizia e della Guardia Costiera.                       

Sighting Description: A light was seen to ignite in the sky and fall slowly in the water, spinning in a series of wide circles. It probably was a signaling rocket launch from the cigarette smugglers to elude the motor patrol vessels of the Police and the Coastguard.
