Sighting Description: Alcune persone osservarono oggetti che si muovevano sul mare e subito pensarono che si trattasse di UFO. In verità il mistero si dissolse subito quando i mezzi e gli strani omini osservati risultarono essere Hovercraft che partecipavano ad un’esercitazione militare dei Lagunari, definita di conquista anfibia. Naturalmente i giornali dell’epoca, sulla scia dei fenomeni adriatici, parlò di avvistamenti di UFO.
